Long time no write. Work and classes will do that to a person, I guess. Thank goodness I'm only going to school part-time at the moment (and I'm in a non-degree program - way more laid back) because trying to work a full time job and do the school thing on top of that is hard. And I'm taking online classes. Sheesh.

Also, it's always sad to see your entire paycheck-and-plus-some be sent off to pay for tuition. The good thing is, I've now taken four courses, so I only need four more. I've got three more lined for the end of the school year and into the summer. I'll have to choose one more for the fall, and then I'll be done for a good, long while (I'll reach permanent teacher certification status - yay!). All told, this venture (which is mandatory in my state, mind you) will have set me back over $10,000. Good heavens!

So that's been my life for a while - work and school, school and work. Sometimes I even get to sleep! It's about that time now, in fact. :)

I can't believe how ridiculous that is - that you have to pay out of pocket for the classes to keep your job. :| But yay for being halfway done!

Yeah, some districts will reimburse you fully or partially for credits. My district has had its budget frozen (and nothing new on the horizon until they settle the teachers' contract, I think). Otherwise, I'd get a little something to help. Oh well. Such is life!
