Just a Quick Update

When I've said in the past that things have been busy, I don't think I truly knew the meaning of the word! I think I know now!

Jeez, what hasn't happened in the past two weeks?!

I'm still working part-time at a clothing store... but I got promoted to Assistant Manager... at another store. So I need to get to know this new store, and its procedures. I also need to be trained and learn the ins-and-outs of being an Asst.Man. This all started less than a week before my hours at school restarted.

I went back to school at the end of August. I needed to fix my room. The summer cleaning crew (students from the middle school) took everything out of my room to wash the floor, then just threw it all back in there. My poor room looked like it threw-up all over itself! Plus I've been helping out in the other K class, because they still didn't hire a teacher for that room! The K Department Head (my boss) is doing it for now, so I've been helping her get things ready. For almost 2 weeks, I'd go into school at 9 am, work until 4, go to my PT job, then go back to school at 10 pm, and stay until 2 am.

I'm tired just thinking about it.

Today was the first real day of school. I like my kiddies. They don't necessarily like listening, though! But it was just the first day. I'll get them into shape by the end of the month. They're all good kids. I don't know if they'll beat out last year's kids, though. I loved my kiddies last year!

I think the only thing not going on right now in life is romance. I know I mentioned having a crush a while ago... Nothing ever came of it. I'm kind of bummed over it. As much as it would be great if he realized that I'm awesome and would initiate something, I'm not going to sit around waiting, especially for something that likely may never happen. Don't get me wrong- I'd be elated if he actually did like me... but I'm sure he doesn't, so I'm only going to hurt myself by waiting. Too bad... his mommy really loves me (or so I've heard).

Well, I need to go pack. After school tomorrow, I'm heading off to Atlantic City with some friends. Party time!

I'm tired just thinking of the hours you've been keeping. Congrats on the promotion though!

And this is the perfect time of the year to go to Atlantic City.

I don't know if I could ever have done all you do! Teaching sucks the life out of you and just setting up a room and getting through the first week was hard. First term is by far the hardest you work all year...until June!!
Good luck this year and in the romance department too!
