Birth and Resurrection

In Uncategorized by AndrewLeave a Comment

Well…I’m turning 24 this Friday. Friday the 13th.

Talked to my sponsor teachers today at Kelly Road. Looks like I’ll be teaching Computers 9 and 11, and core math 9 for the 10 weeks. It should be fun….but I’m sure it’ll be a challenge. I guess I’ll know for sure if I want to be a teacher at the end of this practicum. The dilemma in my mind is whether I’ll be happy as a teacher…I’ve already established that I can do it…but the question is whether I would be happier doing something else. We’ll see.

I just found a replacement motherboard for my old laptop on ebay. Imagine that! You really can find anything on ebay. So it will be shipped to me tomorrow and hopefully arrive next week. If everything goes according to plan, I will be able to resurrect my laptop before the end of this month. I’m a little depressed that I didn’t look on ebay earlier, but I’m still pretty happy with my new laptop….and maybe now I can sell my old one and use the money to make payments on my new one.

So I was in class the other day…actually it was before class, and decided to fire up msn to see who was online. Then I realized that I had my mini webcam in my bag which clips on my laptop screen, so I hooked it up. I started chatting with Jane and got to show her my classroom and the view that I had of the admin building. It was cool to be sitting in class…connected to the internet wirelessly…and chatting on msn. I don’t know…maybe only other computer geeks can understand why I think it’s so cool.

Adios for now,
