Update 6/30

Wow, time flies when you're having fun... June is already ending but I still have another complete month of vacation (Yay). I don't officially go back to work until August 10th but I imagine I will get started after the July 31st grand opening of our new high school building if I don't still find another job.

I did apply for a few more jobs. The most exciting thing I applied for is a language arts job at a school for the arts but I'm sure the competition will be fierce. I do have a connection at the school but I think everyone is on vacation right now so I'll just have to wait and see if I can get an interview.

I got my teaching schedule for next year at my current school but the whole thing reads like a mystery. The course titles on my schedule are all new and it looks like I am teaching everything in a double block so I am assigned three classes that will extend the time it takes everyone else to teach six classes. The good news is that if I have the same kids for two hours in a row, my grading load should be smaller. This will be good because I am teaching straight through from 7:15 until about 1:40 with maybe a half hour for lunch so it will be a long day for me. I no longer have yoga on my schedule so there will be no other real breaks in my day. I am actually relieved to have the yoga off my schedule because it will keep my passion fresh for the adult classes I teach on my own time. At the end of this year, I was sick of teaching yoga to resistant teens so I think this will be a good thing although I will miss the yoga break in the middle of my day.

I wanted to put up something creative on the blog today like poetry or prose but the time got away from me while I was working on my latest painting and now I'm off to the dentist and then to teach two yoga classes so the more stimulating writing will have to wait a day or two.

Today I am grateful for good health, sunshine and creative inspirations.

I really hope you get the arts class you are wanting. Or at least something you apply for. Enjoy the full month of July off.

I hope you are able to breathe and enjoy each and every day off until you return to whatever job is the right one for you. :-) What you accomplish in your teaching, yoga, poetry, and art awes and inspires me.
