I hope you are reading from somewhere warmer than here! Burrrrr! The “spring” semester is going great so far, even though there is nothing but snow here!
As for school, I am taking 12 credits, and doing my practicum as well. At RIT, I am doing some really great interpreting assignments: a calculus course, a dodgeball class and a volleyball class. I am loving it. Outside of school, I am interpreting Girl Scout meetings, and having a blast! There are songs, and teamwork activities that all the girls are involved with. It is so much fun and I always leave looking forward to the next time I go back!
As a 4th-year student in the interpreting program, we also are required to do observation of interpreters. I am observing some great classes as well: Coaching Healthy Behavior (a class where students learn to become Wellness Coaches) and a Mechanical Dynamics class (boy, am I glad I am observing that one! 🙂 You’re probably thinking, wow that girl is busy! You’d be right!
Tonight, I am going to see a play put on by the College of Liberal Arts (one of the colleges of RIT) called “How I Learned to Drive.” A few of my friends aren’t in the play, but they are interpreting it, so a few friends are going to watch it. Should be fun! And then tomorrow, I am going to see the RIT men’s hockey game. (LET’S GO TIGERS!) There is always so much happening at RIT, is tough to decide which events to go to!
Well, I’m off to meet with my mentor to discuss my interpreting progress this week! I’ll post again soon!
