Good Reads

Guys. It has only been 2 weeks into the new semester and I feel like I've been in my classes FOR-EV-ER. Easily the hardest semester of my life. (Easily the hardest? Does that make sense? I'm saying it anyway!) The good news is.... (drumroll please).... I'm graduating this semester !!! That's right, after this semester and student teaching in the fall, I will be a real, life sized, certified, bonafide, Art and English teacher(to-be)! Can I get a "whoop whoop" (raising the roof, raising the roof)

That is... If I can survive. Every morning I hit the ground running and drop exhausted into bed every night. But it feels good, and as long as I can ignore the laundry needing to be done, car needing to be cleaned and house needing to be organized, I can keep my cool just fine :)

In one of my English education classes I am supposed to read a young adult literature novel every month until I die (easy right? haha). 
This month: Divergent. Anyone heard of it? I'm not too far in, but like any other futuristic, dystopian novels (which I love), so far so good!

Also, I'm now officially a GoodReads profile owner, so if you are on Good Reads, find me (Valerie Stratford)! It's like the Facebook of book-readers. Every nerd's social dream come true. haha
