I think I should move...
Okay.. so I think I should move this blog.. I really hate the layouts and editing properties movabletype offers. We'll see..
Anyways.. School is back in full swing. It's already been 3 weeks.. Wow.. time flies by really fast. I am so behind as well. I have readings to do plus resume stuff that I should have done during the break but I didn't. I really thought I would start the new year off good.. well I'm trying to fix it. My plan is to apply for like 4 divisions within Saskatchewan. I definitely want to try for Lloydminister though. I've been talking to some people about Saskatoon Public.. The horror stories.. apparently it doesn't matter how much teaching experience you have or whether you're a really good teacher.. it's the connections you have for the school you want. They'll only hire you if someone knows you.. and! not only that.. you have to go through a terrifying ordeal of two interviews just only to get on the freakin sub list!!.. just to sub!.. no thank you.. I would rather wait for a contract thank you very much. I guess they do take into consideration the teaching areas you have.. but still unlikely it would be get me anywhere with what I can offer.
I went back to the school last Friday.. it was fun.. I only went in the afternoon.. but I got such a nice welcome. I didn't expect any of the kids would stalk me.. but they did.. lol.. three of the girls found out I was coming.. so they were trying to find me all noon hour. until they spotted me.. so I hung out with them for a bit.. such funny girls.. I was glad I stopped by the grade 10 math class.. they were studying for their final.. so I helped and answered questions.. To be honest, it felt kind of weird to be back.. not being their teacher.. I hope they do good on their exam.. btw.. they don't get a cheat sheet.. :(..
Ugh.. so what else.. um.. parents don't get to go to by grad banquet which I'm kind of bummed about. I mean it was kind of my fault.. They're going to Hong Kong.. and I forgot to inform them that my grad was on the 12th of March. By then, their tickets were booked. It's not the end of the world or anything.. it would be nice if they were there. They still get to go to convocation.. but really who wants to go to that??
Thank you, UofS.. for letting me know I still have $1.04 left in my retail credit from 2007.. I think I'll by a pencil or something..
I really need to finish up these application packages.. resume.. cover letter.. I just keep putting it off.. or catching up on readings.. I'll buckle down tonight hopefully.. :).. see I'm so hesitant sometimes..
I get grad photos done today.. so that will be good.. Still can't believe I'm almost done. I really hope I get a job. I'm getting nervous about the education fair coming up.. I hope i don't freeze up or anything.
okay.. so I have to walk down the bridge to Kinsmen park right now.. hopefully my runners will be nice to be today.. I really need some new shoes. Again, maybe next time you'll see me somewhere else.. maybe livejournal.. or blogger.. we'll see..
