...and it was good. It was RIGHT.

Catherine, Patti, and Catherine's family are all hooked on Wii Sports. Eventually I'll get to play Zelda and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.

Fun is about to be had. Jer, Josh, you guys need to come over soon. Though I only have one extra controller...

This thing is cool beyond words.

Image Hosted by all I got was this lousy blog post.

Actually, that's not really true. Catherine and I went out to celebrate with a lovely meal.

It's strange to be finished. In many ways, I really didn't want to go. The students were great and they thought I was great, too. The staff were amazing and by the end of it all, I had a class.

It's like building up momentum, hitting your stride, then hitting a brick wall.

At least I'll have the Wii to comfort me on Sunday. Before then, however, plans abound. There's no rest for the wicked. Maybe next week I'll get a moment or two to rest before I turn the dreaded 29 years old.

Soon I'll hit 30. That just can't be good.

Jer, finish up your trade show so you can come over, play games with mii, and then take home your lovely new Gamecube.

God, I need sleep.

"Go then, there are other worlds than these."

Good lord it's been a long time since I last posted. No real reason for the lack of updates, just that I've been preoccupied with school. It's a one month "internship" that has me teaching grade 9 english and grade 11 sociology full time.

The first week was brutal, but manageable. The second week I suddenly emerged into the light and all was well in the world.

According to my AT, I'm doing unbelievably well. He's already done my evaluation and it states that I should be hired now and that I'm "the best teacher candidate he's ever seen."

I'm still stunned.

It's not that I doubt my ability to teach, but getting high praise from someone who is well respected in the educational community makes it seem surreal. I have miles to go and years to cover before I'm anywhere near his league, Nicole's league, or the many great teachers I've had in the past.

What I will take from this is that it's a sign that I've made the right choice. Hopefully ;).

Otherwise, things are looking just fine. The Wii comes out in less than a week and I'm going to try to rope in Jer to have some launchday fun and games as afterwards he'll take home his spanking new Gamecube (seeing as I'll no longer have use for mine).

Then next week I turn 29. I'm getting old. Not Nathan old, mind you, or even Jer old, but old.

You know how I know? I always feel ready for a nap.
