This quarter at school ended up to look very different than it did when I first registered…really only because of one change.
I’m not sure if I posted about this here, but one of my required courses for graduation (Hebrew) had to be scheduled at a conflicting time with Ari’s school schedule.Â To remedy that, we found a mom at the school who would watch him for the one hour we needed before his class.Â What happened got very interesting.Â The Hebrew teacher was this woman from Russia who was like a rabid general.Â She insisted that we begin using vowels when we hadn’t done so since the middle of last quarter.Â I held out for a week, dropped the class and registered for another.Â So, the day I go in to tell the mom that I won’t need to utilize her babysitting services anymore she tells me that she can no longer watch him (school liability issue).Â We all had a good laugh and now I don’t have to schedule around Ari’s class.Â However, since I put off this Hebrew class, graduation has been delayed by another quarter.Â It just means I’ll have less time between graduation and the beginning of law school.Â C’est la vie.
Here is my list of classes for the quarter:
- Health Psychology
- Social Psychology
- Developmental Disabilities
All are very interesting.
I have to do a practicum for my developmental disabilities course.Â The professor suggested that if you have a relative that’s autistic that you choose another area so that you can learn something new.Â I chose to work with profound mentally handicapped adults & teens in a recreation setting on Saturday morning.Â There is this teen whom I adore.Â She has Rett Syndrome and has little control over her movements, so she’s constantly moving around.Â But she’s beautiful and you can tell that she is more present emotionally than her external actions seem to indicate.Â It’s an interesting experience and it’s a lot of work.Â I’ll be there for 5 more weeks.Â
