I know you all have been waiting with bated breath on my whereabouts and what has happened to this site. In October I got a job that required me to train in another state, making me miss a week of school. After training I became a “part-time” student and began working. I’m doing technology integration for a school.
Then I had two jobs. Yay.
Working over 40 hours a week left me tired, not physically tired, but after dealing with students and teachers and computer screens all day, coming home and being on my laptop for a few more hours wasn’t a priority. Sadly, my thesis always was pushed back and graduation.
Fast forward to the end of February, after taking off a few days of work and drinking my weight in Red Bull, the first draft of my thesis was completed. Another yay.
Then disaster struck. Literally.
The program that funded my job furloughed us for two weeks. As I was packing my bag for my “forced vacation,” I had grand plans of finishing all my posts and being awesome. None of that happened. I think I loafed around the couch reading books and trolling Goodreads like it was a porn site.
After the two weeks, we were told the program was disbanding, and it would take another three weeks before I could get rehired by the school part-time. This, dear readers, is employment limbo.
So another three weeks of loafing, reading and avoiding the web site. However, the school where I was working hired me part-time, so this is where I am. Until the summer where my other teaching job starts back again.
