I can’t believe I only wrote one entry in February. So sorry about that, guys. February kicked my butt. Well, I guess school kicked my butt in February. I finished one of my courses, Math for Elementary Education I this past Monday. It geared up soon after my last entry and went full-throttle until the end of the month. I got through it, however, and I got through it with an A. I’m pretty proud of myself.
My lowest grades were the project grades, and they were group projects (read: the devil).
Math for Elementary Education II started Wednesday, and it should go a little smoother.
I had to write another essay in my American Literature course immediately after turning my last one in. I turned it in early last week. My third and final essay for that course isn’t due until the end of the semester, so I have some time to breathe.
Needless to say, February has been school, school, and more school. I will get back to my recaps and other hobbies as soon as I can.
For my sanity, I’ve been playing a little bit of Fire Emblem Heroes on my phone. By “a little bit,” I mean I’ve been obsessed with the game. I didn’t want to start a game on my 3DS, Switch, or PS4 because I didn’t want to get distracted from my school work, and knew if I started a new game, I’d spend hours playing it instead of writing my essay, doing online Math homework, or reading a story for American Literature… I figured Fire Emblem Heroes was casual enough to play for minutes at a time, but it’s addicting. I’ve had to limit myself, haha.
I have two teams. My main team is Corrin, Leon, Donnel, and Hector. I started a second team pretty recently of all cavalry units: Seth, Olwen, Titania, and Priscilla. Good times are being had.
I made time for my seventh and eighth grade Sunday School class in February as well. We have been discussing prayer. I want them to see that 1) there is no right or wrong way to pray (although their Youth Minister and I have been discussing structures for those who feel shy and need the structure) and 2) anyone and everyone can pray. I value my Sundays with those kids. Everyone I speak to about my intentions to teach Middle School goes, “Are you sure? Hold on and think about it. Middle School is awful.” Those kids are the best. I love them.
So, that was February. I hope to be more active here at SHARKBOY in March. Maybe I’ll have time for a recap! Captain Planet and Goosebumps are looking pretty darn good.
