So here it is, the last two weeks of July. School starts in just over 2 weeks and I still don’t have a job. I have interviewed for a total of ONE job this summer. It’s a high school social studies job at an alternative program. But hey, I’ll take it if they give it to me.
I’ve never felt so worthless before. I really REALLY don’t want to continue my grad program right now. I’d rather be employed as a teacher. I’m tired of being a student. I’m tired of telling my kids that we have to wait to buy stuff and not being able to provide for them the things they want and need. I’m tired of not having a vacation besides sitting at home doing nothing (because we’re broke and can’t afford a real vacation). I want to go to Orlando and do nothing at the parks!
I’d much rather be creating curriculum than abiding by another person’s curriculum. I’d rather be grading homework than doing homework. I’d rather be assigning classwork than doing classwork. I’d much rather be facilitating the discussion than simply participating in a discussion.
I just want a job.
