So I still haven’t even received calls on jobs that I’ve applied for yet, neither career wise nor burger flippin’ wise. I have decided, however horrible of an idea, that if by some stroke of luck I do get a teaching job lined up for the fall that I will take the rest of the summer off and just throw August’s bills on my credit card. It just seems like a good idea right now. Don’t patronize me for it, however. After all, it’s just an idea.
I do have two applications I should really strive to get out today. The Oakland one really has me biting my nails on the personal reflection write up. I get so caught up on those things. I think i just need to learn to relax about that. I think that if they don’t like my reflection they won’t give me the time of day, and while that’s mostly correct, it’s probably not the “sincher.” I just need to learn to breath.
Speaking of breathing, my stress levels are back to where they were at the end of the school year. My neck has a constant kink, not to mention a constant dull pain. I really wish that I had a better method of dealing with things. I really should get back into yoga….I should be able to. It’s not like I’m working too much. Actually, I think that I’ve been putting in more hours on the house (when it’s not ridiculously hot) than normally done in a work week. Yikes.
However, I have been knitting. A while ago, I tried to make a shawl but stopped an entire skien short. Thankfully it made a really nice two triangle pattern, so I’m working on a second one and the plan is to sew the two together into one really nice, snuggle alpaca shawl. Granted, the random breaks in the yarn are causing more frustration than not, but that’s alright.
