Yesterday was the first day back – I am exhausted and I don’t think my voice works anymore, I must have talked for 9 hours straight. I’m going enjoy this semester, of all 7 classes there is only 1 student I haven’t taught before so at least I have the short hand with them and I know all their names already! Yeah!!
I think the students last semester broke me, at the very least discouraged me a lot! I’m looking forward to a more friendly atmosphere for this one. I found out that I’m making the same amount of money as the other teachers, I thought I was making less, so that was a bonus. I’ve come to the conclusion that unless the perfect opportunity arises I’m going to do the commute to and from the cottage and look for a place in July. So all in all, a good week.
The stupid thing still hasn’t solved itself yet but that’s ok, at least I’m to exhausted to care right now, step in the right direction I guess. Can’t win them all, at once.
I’m feeling optimistic about my future right now. I always know that I’m going to be alright but sometimes we forget that we have choices. My choice right now is to follow my instinct, like I said I was going to do. The only thing I’m a little worried about by doing this commute, I’ll be leaving my ladies alone for a few days and nights and that’ll be hard on us all. However, maybe the perfect opportunity will arise and this will all be settled. I do know that the girls and I will be spending all of June at the cottage, even if we do find our dream place for May 1st….I suspect the dream place is the cottage!
