Crossroads. Help Me, Pathfinder!

I’m at a crossroad with my education. I am getting close to graduating with my Associates of Business Administration degree. (YAY!) However, I am also looking at what the future holds for me. (Used via Creative Commons, thank you dsmoljanovic!) I am a storyteller, not as in, “the fish was this big” stories, but more…

Responsibility

I received this via email from one of my teachers this week. It was sent to the entire class. It reminds me that personal responsibility for your action or inaction is mandatory. I bet he has to send it out every term. I sometimes have to say no to my students. I once had to…

School Work Response

I’ve written about being in school many times on here. Some of the work is really frustrating. In one of my classes, a required Microsoft Publisher class, we were required to create a newsletter about our family or home life. I was in a really bad mood when I wrote it. The teacher’s response? “I…

School Work: Really?

So. I’m taking a Business Communications class. It should be labeled bizcom for dummies. But it’s not, I digress. The assignment: Create a PowerPoint presentation about business culture and practices in another country. I chose Canada. I’ve included my PowerPoint and my presentation. I’ll let you judge if you would have wanted to sit through…

What’s that you’re saying?

As you’ve all been keenly aware, I’m taking a Public Speaking course this term. Part of the assignments include a recorded video of each speech so we can analyze it and learn from it. Here it is. Watching it, I just cringe. I’m not a fan of my voice when recorded or seeing myself on…

Inspiration

As some of you may know. Especially if you’re one of the few that actually read my blog or Twitter or Facebook on a regular basis. I’ve got a pretty full life, Work, School, Gym, Friends. All take time. Lately, more than a few friends of mine have referred to me as providing them inspiration…

Spring 2010 – In the books

Today was my last final in my Spring Term, you have all heard me bellyache about this term and it has been difficult to manage, but I wanted to share with you the highs and the lows of this term. Math: Lets start with the biggest roller coaster. This class has been most taxing for…

Balance, It’s Delicate

The last few weeks have been difficult and stressful for me. Not because I dislike things, but because I like too much. I like my job, in fact, I really love my job. But, it has been really busy. We’ve got a lot going on. I like being busy. I like that I’m going back…

More Writing (Down with homework)

My latest assignment for my Writing class was to write a nonsensical five-paragraph essay. It’s to illustrate our confidence in the structure of an essay and that we are able to create and write properly. Here’s what I chose, I hope my teacher has a good sense of humor. Writing Homework is Hazardous to Students…

A little something I’m working on.

For my next writing assignment is a personal narrative. I’m struggling to get it all out of my head, but here’s the opening paragraph. “Ladies and gentlemen, as we arrive at the station please remain in your seats. We’ll disembark as soon as we can.” The bus driver said. The road was empty save for…
