NC State of Mind.

And we’re back! My break officially ended today as I had both work and class. I hope everyone had a great break, I know that I did. Even though I didn’t have a “typical” spring break, I still had a great time. I worked four of five days last week and had a couple of assignments to work on.

"Miss DeJohn, what will you be when you grow up?"

Yesterday morning I had an epiphany. As I instructed my 8th Grade students to complete an activity that directly corresponded to Dr. Seuss’s book Oh the Places You’ll Go, which required students to reflect on their dreams and goals in life while analyzing the possible consequences or “road blocks” that may potentially get in their way of reaching their fullest potential, one student asked: “Ms. DeJohn, what will you be when you grow up?”

Back from break and ready to roll!

It’s me again, refreshed from a week off of school, but ready for my spring break from work! I wish that they would have fallen on the same week, but I’ll take the break any way I can get it.

Yes, hockey fans, that is me and the Stanley Cup. Our MSA trip to Columbus, OH this weekend included watching the Columbus Blue Jackets (NHL) and Columbus Crew (MLS), tours of their facilities, as well as a tour of Ohio Stadium at OSU. Click the title to find out some more!

I think Spring didn't get the memo…

I realize this is Upstate New York, but I’m over snow, cold weather and ice. I’m ready for it to be nice outside so I can go out and run around with the kids I babysit, walk outside without my winter jacket on, you get the point.

Back to Buffalo

This blog talks about how I took a ‘bump’ flight home from Orlando to Buffalo, and how I spent my last night in Florida at a One Republic concert!!! (Best concert EVER!)

Out of Sorts

A week off and I feel a bit out of sorts, hence why I’m writing this today, Sunday, instead of on Friday. Sorry about that.
This week was spring break and I didn’t go anywhere; I stayed in snowy Buffalo. I got a lot of work done for school though and I did start subbing, which was interesting.

5 pages…23 pages…47 pages…54 pages…75 pages…89 pages…99 pages…107 pages…18 Appendixes…DONE, DONE, DONE!!!! Yesterday at approximately 1:45pm I was finally able to complete my master’s thesis. I felt as if a massive amount of weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. Although I still have to design the presentation board for the Ignation Scholarship Day and edit the rough draft, I am so relieved to have completed the assignment.

Practicum Placement

I had never considered that counseling could apply to so many student support services besides the counseling center and the career center. This got me thinking about the possibilities of working at a college or university.
