Is anyone there? Anyone?
I think I forgot how to blog. Does that mean I forgot how to be a complete egomaniac? I don't know. I did start reading/commenting on other blogs during the hiatus, and isn't it very funny how much easier it is to listen to other people when you shut the hell up occasionally? Hmm.
Right now I'm subbing for Mentor A, not to be confused Mentor X, who we know I hate. I actually enjoyed Mentor A as a mentor, which is why she has never been mentioned previously. No good stories with Mentor A, just good advice, helpful tips, and a kick-a letter of recommendation.
Anyway, I'm telling you this is because since I'm subbing, I'm also watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off,* which makes concentrating on the internet kinda difficult. That movie never gets old. So THAT's how things are in their family...
So. Anyway. What is new with you? Here is what is new with me:
1. I'm fake-employed. Subbing is fake because I used to be a real teacher. Also, I work, occasionally, at a restaurant I worked at back when I was at the U. That's right. I'm the most well-educated restaurant worker ever. More on that later. But let it be understood that I also consider this fake-employment.
(I have only two requirements for employment to be considered real. It either offers health benefits, or provides me with all-I-can-drink-diet coke. Yesterday said restaurant got rid of the soda machine, thus rendering it fake.)
2. Speaking of health benefits, I'm applying for a job teaching 7th grade next year. If you had told me a year ago that I would be excited to teach 12 year olds about the history of Utah, I would have completely ignored you as a psychopath. But whatever. The job market sucks this year for History/English teachers, so I am taking what I can get. And if you are a Math and/or Science teacher just wallowing in the difficult decision of which,oh which, of the MANY jobs you have been offered throughout the general Salt Lake area to take, well, shut it. Seriously. Don't. Talk. To. Me.
Math, pshew. I haven't done any Math since freshman year and look how well I turned out! A fake-teacher-restaurant-employee who is completely addicted to caffeine! Who needs math?
Anyway. That is about it. Are you happy I'm back? I am.
So seriously, what is new with you?
*I know I have previously expressed anger at teachers who allow their students to watch stupid movies. But hey, the AP test is over, there are three days left of school, and I've been out of teaching long enough that my standards have totally atrophied. Happy summer!
