Done!!!

Smeagol is free!!

School's done and over. I got all of my students' portfolios graded and turned in my last paper.

So far, I got an A in my teaching seminar class and an A in my Lit. Theory class. Still waiting on my Beats seminar grade. I got a B on the paper :( but I'm hoping that I'll still get an A with the other points I got in the class.

I now need to go find a job. I have a feeling I'll end up at Kohl's again, if only because I know they'll work around my schedule. Since I'm going to be gone for 5 days and have a two week period where I can only work nights and I have to leave on August 23, I think I'll be better off going somewhere where I won't need training and will have people who know me. I just don't want to go back.

I've gotten on another baking kick. I made homemade blueberry muffins (with real blueberries!) earlier this week and I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate glaze last night. Mmmm. We need to eat the cupcakes before I make anything else though.

Need to call Mom. She and Paul have now moved to Florida and she's finally gotten hired on at Bed Bath and Beyond. She starts on Wednesday. I haven't talked to her in several days, which is odd since she normally calls me twice a day since she's bored and lonely.

I'm bored too. I guess I could work on some things for 102 next fall since everything's still fresh from this quarter. Hmm.

Oh! Sarah's reading list for the summer:

Lisey's Story by Stephen King
The Children of Hurin by Tolkien
Brideshead Revisted by Evelyn Waugh
Dark Tower Series by Stephen King (I usually reread this over the summer)
Johnathan Strange and Mr Norrell
Any Neil Gaiman I can get my hands on
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
TIme's Arrow
That book by Connie Wallis Dr. Loranger told me about
Book of Lost Tales 1 & 2 by Tolkien
Lost Road & Other Writings by Tolkien
Read for Independent Paper
Saturday by Ian McEwan
Reread Chronicles of Narnia
Reread The Stand?
Of course, if I was motivated, I'd go buy the books for my Fall quarter classes and read those.

There are some other books that I want to read but I've totally blanked on them now.

PS: I totally hate the new logged-in LJ main page. Ugh. Too cluttered for me. I liked the old, simple one better.
So. Papaw is in the hospital again, this time because his kidneys basically all but failed for good and he now has to go on dialysis about 3 months sooner than they thought. I can't go see him tonight, but I'm going tomorrow when I get off work at 2. He's doing okay, so I'm not as worried as I was last time, but I hope that stays true.
