I am SO sick of school I cannot possibly express it right now. I did very poorly on my last accounting midterm bc I used "real life" account names and the book has some I have never heard. Talking to another older student and he told me you don't learn that until the next class! The teacher tells me that he marks from the book so it doesn't matter that it is correct (or that the online homework ues those terms)?? He said he is trying to discourage marginal students.
I am not signing up next semester because I am not sure I want to do this anymore. Every group project becomes a "you are older and know what you are doing, so you can do all the work." I am the one with the least time on my hands! Teachers tell me, this is my chance to practise my leadership skills - REALLY? Why? Am I getting better marks or a reference for this? NO...
DS1 is just struggling in kindergarten. We are constantly being asked to pick him up and getting mixed signals. He thinks when he is bored, he can just act up and go home. It is incredibly stressful.
Budget is stretched but we are doing so much better. We haven't been out to eat in 3 weeks. I did get popcorn at the hockey game last night but I feed everyone dinner before we left :) The tickets were $80 but we got them free!
Work is a very strange place. Nasty stuff happening. My commute is getting worse...1hr 10 mins of standing on your feet before your day begins. And all this putting in applications, doing tests and preparing for interviews is eating up way too much time.
So much to have going on all at once...
