So we got our room! It's not the one we really wanted, but it's almost as good and we all got one together. So YAY!
The one we wanted was located right in the middle of campus, which would have been SO NICE because all my classes are on North Campus so it would have been pretty easy to get to class every day. The one we GOT is basically the same apartment as the one we wanted, but it's all the way on South Campus. So it will take me a good 20 minutes to get to my classes every day. Which is fine, it's just a big change from the 3-5 minutes it takes me now. But on the bright side, I'll get more exercise! :) So it all worked out, just not how we were expecting. Things tend to work that way more often than not, I think.
Speaking of things working out, I'm teaching two tenth grade classes about WWII and the Holocaust* today. I'm PRETTY NERVOUS. I've never taught actual high schoolers before. I've taught college students pretending to be high schoolers, but somehow I don't think it's going to be the same. *sigh* So, wish me luck! I'll tell you all about it tonight.
Until then, best wishes!
*Aren't I supposed to be an ENGLISH teacher? How did I end up teaching a lesson on HISTORY? :-/
