15 days til we head home for Christmas. It's always so nice and comes at just the right moment where Ben and I think we can't take much more of Clovis. We stay positive about this place most of the time, but about every 6 months, we get so incredibly sick of it and need to get out!
I had 2 interviews this week. One I would really like to have and one, not so much. The one I would like is a 6th grade position. I interviewed with the principal and 2 other teachers. Hopefully, I made a good impression and my personality suited them. I have to be myself in interviews, because I don't want to pretend to be something, and then have to act like someone else just to "fit in". I am who I am and if people don't like me, then that's ok. I know I'm awesome. The other job is a 2 year old teaching position at an early childhood center. I don't really want that job because I feel like it would be more like a glorified baby sitter at that age. I thought it was for a 4 year old classroom, so I was surprised when I went in. eh.
Not sure if I'll get either because the school district is in the hole from budget cuts and wasteful spending.
I wish I was back at Cameo! One of the principals told me that she was at a meeting with Tony (my principal from Cameo), and he told her how great a teacher I am and that he really wished I was back at the school. If a position opened up there, I know I'd get a job. I feel really thankful that my first REAL teaching job was at a school filled with people that I really got along with and took me under their wings.
I have been working on SEVERAL paintings lately, none that I can post on here yet because they are presents for people. I'm especially proud of one and hope the person who receives it is as thrilled with it as I am.
Things I need to do today:
1. Buy Eclipse on DVD
5. Clean bathroom
6. Clean room
7. Take a shower
8. Start another painting
9. Finish shopping for people
I think that's all. I can do this. In order to do those things though, I need to get my butt off the internet and get busy.
