Today I had no classes, and tomorrow I don’t either! I did, however, have to attend an eight-hour training seminar that’s required for the technology grant I got. It wasn’t bad, actually. We’re receiving some useful tips and guidelines for when we start designing our module, and we had a lot of time to plan out some of the content and the types of mulitmedia we’ll need to use. It’s going to be a massive amount of work, but it will be really useful and I’ve wanted to learn more about web design, so this is perfect. Plus, I get paid for it, and today they said that if we meet all of the deadlines/checkpoints, they will add $500 to our overall grant money, which means that my partner and I would each get $1500! I can’t even tell you how much I could use that money. It’s unfortunate that I won’t actually get it until June, but what a happy day that will be! This whole grant thing is a great idea, so if any of you go to graduate school, apply for grants! (And when I’m complaining about this grant thing in Feb., remind me that I once said it was a good thing.) But it’s good experience, extra money, and adds to your c.v. Plus, we got catered lunch from Panera today, Moe’s for lunch tomorrow, and free books, one of which has the unfortunate title How to Turn Learners On Without Turning Them Off: Ways to Ignite Interest in Learning. I mean really, does sexual language have to be everywhere? Spare me!

And…I was tagged by Stef.
