Still Alive

Hey guys,

Thanks for the comments in the last few weeks...they've definitely helped. I know some of you have been asking / wishing that I would write more about this Teach For America bootcamp experience, but I'm honestly just too mentally exhausted right now. Next week is our last week (thank god!) and I'll be getting a week off before Orientation starts; so I promise more blogs (and more details) will be forthcoming shortly. Thanks for the patience...this training thing is the craziest, busiest thing ever, and patience is definitely needed for all in my life right now! :)

From the depths of hell...aka: TFA institute

So if this makes sense, it'll be a miracle, as I've gotten about 6 hours of sleep all week (not 6 each night). This shit is crazy...I've made it to the half way point, though (thank god), so I just gotta grin that cult-ish grin and bare it for 3 more weeks. I am learning a lot of great things...hopefully i'll have the time to go back and re-learn this stuff later, as we're all so tired right now that it's hard to internalize anything. The actual teaching is the best part, even on the bad days, b/c it's what I joined for...but MAN are the hours crazy. Ugh. Ok. Sorry not very detailed or in depth, but i'm too tired and am gonna try to hit they hay before midnight for the first time in forever.
