I've been so stressed the past few days. It's so bad that my stomach has actually been seriously upset for most of the day today. I was offered a job on Thursday, which is great, but I'm still a little nervous about that situation since I haven't signed a contract or anything official yet. After over 2 years of job searching it's hard to get excited until I know for sure that it's definitely mine. On top of that, it's a job that I'm not technically licensed for so I'm nervous about taking the class and the test I need in order to become licensed by next May. It's registering for the class and completing it in time that's really got me worried. Then, there's my current job situation. I went back to my old job (started in 1999) at an after school program for the summer, as I have every summer since graduating. I had told them I'd be there all summer, but now with this teaching position, professional development starts in 2 weeks and I won't be able to fulfill my commitment to them. My immediate supervisor understands because she always knew it was a possibility, but her bosses are giving me a really hard time and now they're taking away my supervisor's vacation because I won't be there to cover for her. As if I didn't feel bad enough as it was, now I feel incredibly guilty because she's losing her vacation. Oh, and I almost forgot. I also have to call my principal from last year (private school) tomorrow to tell her that I won't be back in September. She knew I was job searching so it won't be a huge surprise, but I'm still a little nervous about calling to give her the news....especially when I haven't signed a contract yet! Everyone keeps telling me that I have to do what's best for me, but I can't help worrying about everything. My stomach is a mess because of worrying and all I want is to be able to be happy and celebrate my new position.
