That terror in my eyes? Not sure if it's more for the unemployed or the old part.
They both make me sad.
It's official. I have taught my last class, given my last test, said good-bye to my last student.
I still have some "end of school activities" posts to make and then I'll be back to dreaming up blog fodder all on my own - - - Maybe Brunhilda and Borris will help me.
I have to go back to school on Tuesday and Wednesday for teacher work days - - - then that is all she wrote.
I have no idea what I will be doing next, except I KNOW I won't be hired to - - -
Drive cars onto these things at car washes.
What WERE they thinkin' when they invented THIS system?????? I stopped at the car wash today on my way home from school. They call this a "guided" system - - - well, their "guide" can't be seen over the front hood, and suffice it to say, if THAT was a test for employment - - - I failed.
Speaking of a test for employment, I dreamed the other night that I was having an interview to be a waitress and "he" told me - - - "You are too STUPID to be a waitress." I was shocked (in my dream of course) and told him I hadn't been too stupid for the past eleven years to teach SCIENCE to middle and high schoolers, six different preps a day, and I really thought I COULD handle slapping plates down on a table - - -
Suffice it to say, I didn't get THAT job of my dreams - - -
To be honest, since my salary is spread out over 12 months (note - - - teachers don't get 8 weeks of paid vacation in the summer - - - some of us just spread the pay of our 180+ teaching days for which we DO get paid (a little) over 12 months) I don't plan to seriously HUNT for a new job until after we get back from Wisconsin in late July.
Soon enough then to face the music of finding a job.
I'd much rather act like an ostrich with my head in the sand and ignore the impending doom until it is well and truly upon me.
It was hard enough hearing how "stupid" I was in a DREAM - - - not really ready to face it while WIDE AWAKE.
Of course, if any of you have a job for me - - - I'm all ears.
