First days...

It's all going pretty well so far.  I'm writing this as I watch a group of biology students write about their science "attitudes."  I'm curious to find out what the general population of kids thinks!  Love it? Hate it? Can live without it? Need it?

It should be interesting...

Preview your textbook!

Part 1 - Chapters 1-9 are for Biology classes.

Part 2 - Chapters 10-19 concentrate on Anatomy & Physiology material!

 Holy crap!  It's all digital!

Crazy is as crazy does.

The first step in my planning was to realize that I have a lot of darned (not knitting) planning to do.

The second step in planning was to get pumped up:
    - Tell yourself you're AWESOME!
    - Remind yourself how AWESOME the kids are gonna be.
    - Recognize the utter coolness of science.
    - Think about the WICKED COOL ways I'm going to be awesome.

Okay, pumping up complete.

Step three, go to the public library for some peace and quiet.

Step four is to create a schedule for myself.
This is as far as I've gotten:

Yup, I haven't even added "BREAKFAST" in there yet.

I have been using this template for my semester schedule for years!  It gives me joy and brings me calm all in one.  Once I finish it and it's in color, I will post it.

You have no idea how crazy I feel that I am mapping out to the hour when I will have dinner, study, and walk.  But despite the impending "Whoa, Mrs. M!  You are kind of OCD, huh?", I feel at ease with myself.

See you in a few weeks.

I have started planning for the school year.  Be excited.  Be stoked even.
