Wednesday was my first day back to school!
I know, but I’ve graduated! A whole year ago, where’s my big girl job??? Well getting a big girl job has proved to be a bit of a challenge this go round but I am working on it so I’ll be all grown up and employed next year…(and not in food services)
I went to SETC this year and did Job Contact Services, it was a great time and I had a few interviews but didn’t get any internships. So I’ve decided to take this year and work on my portfolio/resume, get a job, save up some money, and good lord try to declutter my apartment! I seem to have so much more stuff when I moved into a single apartment.
I spent my summer working as an ECI (Extension Camping Instructor) at different 4-H camps in West Virginia. It was a blast! I worked at Doddridge County, Marshall County, and Mingo County as well as volunteering down in Mercer County. I had quite a summer and not a lot of computer time as I’m sure you noticed, which I’m planning on remedying this coming month. Speaking of summer, I was at a camp without water for a day and a half, saw a raccoon get shot, and felt like I swam to more places than I walked it rained so much…but I wouldn’t trade any of my weeks at camp!
On to school!
I am taking Costume History and Design, which I am super excited about! I have been waiting for this class to be offered basically all of my undergrad and now I’m actually taking it. So far we’ve done quite a bit of gesture drawing and just started on proportions with the 8 head method. It’s just me and two other ladies, as well as Troy our professor.
My other class is a special topics class The World of The Teaching Artist. It’s all about ways to be a good teaching artist (more on that later). So far we’ve played quite a few theatre games, which are always fun. This class is bigger than my design class and has 8 students and Fran, our professor. Today we talked a little about content standards, those things are simultaneously super easy and super hard to understand. I kinda feel like I have to stand a certain way, tilt my head, and squint to get them. Next week I have to do an activity with the class, I’m not too worried about it though I think it’ll be fun.
Oh and I found this fantastical skirt at the local goodwill sometime last week! I’ve had some great finds lately and this is one of my favourites.
