Getting over myself.

Thank you so much for all the encouragement! Between my blog readers (and stalkers) and real life friends and family, I had a lot of support yesterday as I whined my way through the day bemoaning my terrible chances of finding a classroom job this year.

Today though I'm back to feeling awesome. Thank goodness because no one likes (or hires) a complainer. I may be one in a thousand trying for the job, but that also means I was one of a thousand who had my hopes dashed to pieces yesterday when I opened my email to see how slim my chances really were. Right now I'm grateful to be able to continue pursuing a teaching career, even if that means sticking it out in the subpool for another year.

Now I'm ready for more traveling, more summer, and more family time. And I guess I have to stop procrastinating packing for our big move...


  1. I truly believe that whether you believe in God or some other "big decision maker" type, there is a plan for you, and it will be shown to you when the time is right. Perhaps you haven't found a job yet because the RIGHT one isn't available yet... You'll find a teaching position...I'm certain of it. And it will be the one in which you can do the most good, learn the most as a professional, and have the most fun :) Teachers don't get into this profession for the money--we get into it for the fun :)
