I can't believe it either. Just two weeks of April left! So much left yet to do.
A lot of the parents of my students have been asking me if the kids will be getting the laptops at the end of the tutoring, or if I can come back more than twice a week, or if I can stay more than an hour a day. And I feel really guilty saying "no I can't" or "I don't know". Because it's really unfair to both the students and to me that the company put us in such a position. No I cannot get even close to 15 hours for seven students, especially when I only started tutoring two last week. Starting next week, I have to schedule post-tests for everyone. I don't honestly expect some of their scores to rise all that much because I have had so little time with them. But just two more weeks. Two more weeks. Technically less since the last week won't be all tutoring.
It rained last Friday so the bonfire was going to be rescheduled. Ryan wants to go bowling on a Monday or Tuesday but a lot of people decided to just go ahead and do the bonfire this Friday. Ryan won't be able to go since he's got plans already, and I don't think I'll be staying that long because I'll have tutoring until, what, 7:30 I think? And then I have to be up early on Saturday for AX meeting. But it will be nice to go to the beach. The weather has been lovely lately.
So, yes, meeting for AX on Saturday. Gotta be there as close to 9 as possible, which means getting up at 7 (which is fine I've been doing that without an alarm anyway) and leaving at 8 (that's the tricky part). Will be there most of the day so I haven't been able to schedule tutoring for Saturday. There's a form from way back when that I never filled out so I should actually do that and bring it to Jonathan... whoops haha
For those of you that haven't heard, I printed out Wayfarer
and stuck it in a giant binder! I want to start editing it, but I really should be writing. And I Haven't been writing. Mostly because when I have the time, I just want to relax because I never really have the time. But guh. I have two weeks left to get as much done of Zero as I possibly can (and reread Divergent
if possible) and then comes May, when I must cram in my FBB and somewhere in between read Insurgent
and start editing.
My plans for today after this post:
- Clean room while rocking out to Mumford and Sons
- Print out worksheets for students for today (and tomorrow)
- Go to tutoring
- Work in writing if possible
Friday I'll do laundry. And get more writing and possibly editing done.
Had to get my car repaired. It cost somewhere around $1000 though I'm only going to be paying for half of it. Haven't had the chance to talk to parents about what I'll be paying since they picked it up yesterday while I was at tutoring. Of course, I also keep asking my dad to send me an updated total of what I owe him for my cellphone and he never does. Hm.
I think I remembered what I wanted to write for my NaNo novel! And it involves Fe, Finn, and Othello and my attempt at writing horror! Well, horror in the Ghost Hunt sense. Fe is a modern-day witch. I haven't decided which kind yet, but I have been following blogs of a lot of witches and have been utterly fascinated by some of the things they do. I don't think I'll make her someone who dabbles in dark magic but I want to make a character she knows that does. I think Finn will still be a religious person, though he keeps quiet about it. And Othello is just sort of there. I really need to think of a reason why he gets roped in with them. But they're going to fight ghosts and spirits and it's going to be awesome!
Speaking of witch-y things, I really want to set up a mini altar. I know where I want to put it, but then I'll have to find another spot for all my Lego mini figures LOL (well, as well as everything else on that shelf because not everything I want to keep in my altar). I am thinking of changing my bamboo to my old fish bowl because it's been in that vase for far too long (almost seven years) and it's probably not good for it's roots. It is starting to die, so I want to see if there is any way to get it flourishing again. Also, Beltane is coming up on the 1st. Since it is a Tuesday, it calls for a trip to the beach!
Mom and I have already started talking about packing for my trip to Ireland. I am so so so excited though I have to keep reminding my dad to buy tickets because if not then they will just get more and more expensive. YOU GUYS. IT'S JUST A MONTH AND A HALF! AHHHHHH!
Okay I've got an hour and a half to clean my room and get dressed. Let's go.
Here's a six-word story. Back to my FBB because I haven't written for that in ages:They're carved carefully, lovingly, from bone.
