I hate that I never post here anymore, but I do read pretty frequently. I've kinda been in a funk over jobs this summer and tried to stay occupied to keep my mind off of it. At this moment I'm away on a mini vacation but the job seeking drama found me here this morning! I got two phone calls from friends that were going in to their schools to start setting up for school, which starts next week. :unsure: While neither of them were calling for that specific reason, it still pains me. I hate explaining my situation over and over. I hate when people just don't understand the situation we're all in. I had a per diem position last year that was so difficult but I was so grateful for, and I'm currently waiting on a decision by the district as to whether or not my position will be continued (the principal is pulling for me and has stood up for me and the job that I did, but it's out of his hands). I had a conversation with my godmother this morning that had nothing to do with this, but in conversation she said, "What do you do? Sit on your ass." To which I got so offended and responded as any teacher would, and to which I got a reply that I'm a "part-time teacher." Because I don't have a job yet. I know she didn't mean to be hurtful, but it still hurts... I don't know where I'm going with this. Just ranting because September will be here soon and I have no clue what I'm doing. I know I'm not the only one in this situation. I think I'm just slowly breaking down because of it.
