TA Extraordinaire. May 2, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — Annette @ 1:34 am

So, things are coming together.  I got my U of M assistantship offer letter by email today.  As a TA I’ll be eligible to pay resident tuition rates, I’ll have half of my tuition paid, I’ll receive half tuition benefits, AND I’ll be paid $16.34/hr for around 10 hours a week.  Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.  I looked around at apartments in the St. Paul area last night and found a couple bachelor apartments which look promising and affordable.  UM – Twin Cities has two campuses, but kind of three locations – Minneapolis: West Bank and East Bank, and St. Paul.  I *think* I’m going to be on the St. Paul campus, but I need to check on that.  Oh yeah, and there’s totally a suburb of St. Paul called “Little Canada.”  Dad said I have to live there 🙂

And I should have started my nutrition correspondence course today, but I bought shoes instead.  Hmm.  No, really, I didn’t have a highlighter, so there was no point in starting to read my textbook.  I invested in one yellow highligher tonight, though, so I should be all set to start tomorrow.  Hopefully I don’t get up at 1PM again like I did today.

Saturday we had church down in Williamsburg.  I caught up with Tom DeSimone and the other locals down there.  We all went out to a Mexican place for dinner afterwards, which was nice.  Sunday I went downtown with my dad and went to a quartet (three violins and a cello) concert at the library, then got ice cream and walked around the downtown of “The Most Historic Town in America.”  Yay, Fredericksburg.

    That’s awesome. You’re going from Canada, to the one place in the world that loves hockey more than Canada. Well, not directly, of course, but that’s not the point.

    Yeah, good thing I’m a huge hockey fan…

    Did you notice the “10 hours a week” part? 😉

    And I think you should maybe start looking into buying some stocks. That’s like a share an hour.

    OOOOO YEAAAAAH! Super rich!

    Just please don’t go flaunting all your fancy new bling around.
