The last couple of years, I've fallen into multi-day assignments in January, so the month hadn't been too slow. This year, I got three days right after Christmas break, but since then it's been relatively slow. I can usually count on having at least one or two days a week scheduled ahead of time, but I've been having to troll online for jobs this month and finding a lot of them on callout so I can't get to them. I've also had to take a few morning calls. I'm usually able to avoid the last minute calls. The MLK holiday didn't help. I'm very glad I don't live in a place with weather that cancels schools. That would make January even more difficult! I think one of the most frustrating things about subbing is that you can only be so proactive. After that, you're in the dark. Are there just no jobs? Did they find someone they liked better than me? Did I do something wrong that I don't know about? It's kind of like dating! How is your January going?
