More on my plate. . .

I received this email request today from a pretty important person on campus. I am honored, but flipping out at the same time. Read below.


I know that you plan to attend the Scholarship Luncheon this Friday, and we would like to have you speak on behalf of your fellow students to express appreciation to our donors. You could tell a bit about yourself and your own situation (as much as you choose) to demonstrate the need for such scholarship support. You will be one of two students speaking to the group, and between the two, you would be in a good place to represent the needs of those who are nontraditional students with family responsibilities, jobs, etc.

We hope you will agree to take this on--folks in the college are very proud of you and all that you accomplish.


How can I say no? Now I am working on a speech so I can turn in a draft by Wednesday morning. On a different note, my bulletin board that is due by Thursday has a little flexibility because of some circumstances out of my control, and I have everything I need for it, I just need to get it displayed. I think I will feel better about my school situation after tomorrow when I can talk to both my mentor teacher and college professor to get answers to my questions and more guidance on the lessons and assessments I have to conduct over the next 2 weeks. Things seem brighter compared to last Friday, but at the same time, I'm not out of the woods yet.

On a personal note, Th has another loose tooth! He has been begging TJ to pull it out for him, but it's not ready. However, the Tooth Fairy will be visiting again soon, and Th can't wait!
