So the first random thought on my mind is that I cannot wait until March 1st so that I can actually register for my summer school classes to start off my Grad school experience. I am also really excited to be back in school and start getting into the Special Ed classes that focus more on Autism than other things... some of the classes I am not looking forward to are "Legal Issues in Special Ed." although thinking about it that class could hold some very interesting topics... SO that might be one that I actually really like, I am also looking forward to the Psychology class that I get to take... Since that was my first major before I decided to switch to Education I am really looking forward to getting back to a psych class. The only bad thing about going to summer school is that the classes are in the middle of the day AND they are Monday - Friday. So that means that I don't get to keep Jackson home like I did last year from school for three days a week. In July my parents said that they could probably keep him tuesday & Thursdays for me so that I could save a little bit of money from daycare. Again I will still be in class but I will only be taking one class instead of two like I will be in June. See this is how crazy I am, I am going to take two classes in the first summer session then one in the second session; for a grand total of 3 classes in two months. Then in August I am going to be taking 2 classes once a week, I really don't want to be in school forever so I am doubling up on classes during the "regular" semesters and taking 3 if possible for the two summers that I will be in school. With all that being said I am hoping that I will graduate in the fall of 2014 that's two years of school. Not to bad when you think about 36 hours of Grad school. Again I am very excited about the decision that I have made to go back to school. Oh in case you have no idea what I am going to school for I am getting my Masters in Education with a specific study in Low incidence (which is just another way of saying a focus in Autism).
Ok now on two another random thought that is going thru my mind here lately. I have go the bug in me that I want to start to take family trips, not to local places like get on a plane and go across the country to another courntry and travel around there for awhile. Some of the places that I really want to go are
- London (where I was born)
- South Africa
- Turks & Caicos
- The Netherlands
- Portugal (we use to go there in the summers)
- the Bahamas (I really want to stay in Atlantis)
- and a few other countries that I can't think of right now....
See what I mean. I had a friend email me a slideshow of an Aquarium in Dubai and that go the juices flowing again on wanting to take cross country trips with the family. Not only do I think traveling the world makes a great cultured life but it is just really fun to see how other people live in other parts of the world, and just to travel is SOOOOO exciting!!! I hope that Jackson takes as much joy out of it as I do and he doesn't just think or here we go again another trip to Rome... Not that my son would ever think that way but you never know..
Well I think that is all I am going to bore you with today... If anyone even reads this... If not then at least it was a great way for me to document my thoughts.
