Applemania

So now I want an Apple Mac. It'd be perfect for Finn - Comic Life, Garage Band... I could save a bit of money for one next term because I had a chat with the Principal and I think, next term, I'm going to be working full time for just a little while, as Director of *giggle* Religious Studies, until they can hire a new one. It could take a week, or six weeks or a whole term, and I will get to teach senior classes in Ethics LOL! When I taught it last, I taught Sects, Cults and Fundamentalism, Social Justice and Major World Religions at senior level, never got to do Ethics. I'll have to brush up on that, haven't taught Year 12 and 13 Religious Education since Christy was born. Of course, if they find a DRS in the holidays, I won't have to do it at all!

But I had a good day today. The girls are getting used to me, the routines are becoming more evident to me, the teachers are getting used to seeing me around, and hey, I knew the cleaner's sister *g*

I even did a little writing at lunchtime - the teachers don't know me well enough to bother to chat much yet so I buggered off and sat outside in the sun. With my coffee, of course. Not a bad life. And life is for living...

What's next!

I'm glad your day went well, I think teaching at the College for a short time will be a good option for you...

Apple Macs - don't know what I think, I know lots of people who use them, and they all seem very happy, but I think it sort of limits your options...I like some of the cute little notebooks they make!!!

Yeah, I think so. I wasn't looking for full time work, but at the same time, it'll be more like the kind of work I can really get stuck into, and it'll be challenging. I'm a bit scared of that, my work has been too intellectually simple for so long, but too emotionally draining!! - a small college will be pretty easy way to ease back into what I was really trained for, huh...

Apparently, once you use an Apple Mac, you never want to go back to PC. I read some research on that one time.

It will be a good challenge for you and it's only a little while! -it might help you decide what you want to do longer term too

That certainly seems to be true of the people I know...but...

That's what Steve said too, he thinks it'll help me decide if I really want to be back in the secondary school system full time.

Well, it's not good from a writing point of view and I'm trying to ignore that little niggle just now.

But other than that, it's very good for what I was trained for (like jumping through hoops and barking at the right time *g*)

If it's what you were trained for it might help increase your confidence and self esteem. And if it's temporary it might not impinge on writing time too much and might even give you more ideas - some of your characters are teachers, after all! If it does wonders for your finances it might make you feel less guilty if you spend time writing, later. It might stop your frenzied housework jag.. As I said, it sounds good!!

Yeah, because that's always a problem with me, huh. I even chickened out at the dentist today. I went, he saw me, didn't realise he was scaring the shit out of me, made me an appointment for Thursday and I got home, then three hours later I rang up and cancelled it! OMG! He's going to be so disappointed in me. But I couldn't bear the thought of another appointment. I feel like a worm.
Still, yeah, a good job might help!

And honestly, the housework frenzy isn't having great results, believe me! I think I am a FAILURE!

Hee! From your dentist's p.o.v. you are definitely a failure - or he is, for not realising the effect he was having!

When Kat gets back from Finland (she's gone home for three weeks) I shall get her to post about my house/housework(lack of) and you will realise that as usual, I win ...

It's not him, I know it's not him. It's how I see him through distorted vision, I'm sure of it. He's really very nice.

Heh, *giggle* yeah, you're an overachiever, always winning LOL!

I don't know much about Macs, or any other computer for that matter. I pretty much let my brother and the people at the store pick out my laptop, and I love it!

The class you might teach sounds interesting. I actually wouldn't mind taking it!

Sounds like a good day. We like those!

Heh, come over here and do another year at high school, with me! Maybe you're cut out to be a teacher VBG!!!

We do indeed, very much so, and we can treasure those and hold onto them, because the day after... OMG who knows for us up and down people, huh!
