Good evening ladies and gentlemen. There’s more changes in my life. One thing is good and the other thing is bad.
I guess I’ll start with the bad. I am not attending the doctoral program I had planned on. I had even sent in the paperwork and was scheduled to be accepted. It was I who turned the school down. I was told by a friend the school wasn’t accredited and so I e-mailed them to find out the whole story. It turns out, they aren’t and the school was kind of rude and defensive when they answered me. To make a long story short, I told them I needed to put the application process on hold (I might added until further notice, but I don’t remember and it does not really matter). Now, I’m back to searching for a PhD program in either creative writing or literature that’s online. If anyone hears of a school offering this, please leave a comment. I really want to get started on another degree and I’m bummed this one didn’t work out. However, there surely is something out there for me!
Now, I’ll tell you the good! I believe I told you I got a job teaching and that I passed the training course. If I didn’t, I’m sorry. I hope you’ll forgive me. Anyway, I heard last week – I think it was Wednesday – that I got a course to teach! I start tomorrow and I will be teaching English Composition II. In this class, I’ll teach about plagiarism, citations, and research. Plus, I am sure there will be even more to be taught than that. I shall see how it goes. There’ll be research papers and essays to grade and posts to read. It should be lots of fun! I am looking forward to starting, although I am nervous and I still feel like the student and not the teacher. I am sure I will feel like a professor when I start.
