The phone call from the Department of Education on Saturday regarding the interview situation was good news.
I had my final evaluation for student teaching today. I passed the student teaching element, technically, although I still have a couple of weeks in the classroom and several weeks of the seminar, with accompanying assignments, remaining. I was hoping that when I added up my total points so far I'd find myself in a "guaranteed-to-pass" situation, but that is not yet the case.
Still, things were beginning to look up. Then the car... yes, the car again... perhaps I should say, The Car... made an odd sound, and the "Check Engine" light came on. It's still running, a little rough, but....?
Apparently the planetary alignment had finally beocme favorable, but the window of opportunity was brief.
I can be so unobservant at times. Like, at most times. Or, arguably, all the time. Fortunately I am surrounded by kind-hearted souls with more acute faculties than I possess to assist me, like those who pointed out that there actually has been some activity at VOX, it just requires a log in to become manifest.
I'm still not really clear on how VOX actually works. Or rather, on how to use it effectively. Duhhhh.... again.
I wonder if I, like, used fewer outdated interjections like "like" and "duhhh..." and "y'know," and, y'know, "stuff," I might generate a broader base of regular readers. Oh, and, of course, I'd have to come up with something interesting to say.
Occasionally I run across very insightful, well-written weblogs with interesting topics or themes that have extremely few reader comments... indicating a very limited readership base. That must be discouraging for the writers, even those who write merely for the satisfaction of self-expression.
Hey, guess what? The maintainers of LJ storage capacity are in luck: I just got the "nine minute battery warning," so I gots to go.
But before I do: one of my Flickr contacts clued me in to this highly detailed, and somewhat amusing, tutorial on miniature figure photography.
