Wow. It took foreverrrr to finally get this blog started. I don’t know why the process was so complicated for me. -_-
Some basics: Duke senior heading to Newark, NJ later this year to teach high school chemistry.
Sooo excited/apprehensive/nervous/ready/not ready. I’m sure these are all normal emotions for a starting corps member. But I’m trying to take it one day at a time, especially in terms of preparing mentally.
Took my PRAXIS exams in Chemistry and General Science over winter break in order to be certified in New Jersey. How were they…ehhhh..We’ll see. I just pray to God that I passed because I definitely don’t have another $200 to spend on them again. :-/
Now I need to concentrate on passing classes since my TFA offer is very contingent on getting a college degree.
I’ve accepted my TFA offer since November. So it’s really exciting to celebrate with friends who applied at later deadlines and are recently getting accepted.
Ok. I know I’m rambling. Because it’s late. And I’m balancing conversing with my best friends. I promise future posts will be more coherent.
The countdown begins now. 154 days until institute. Ow!
