Well, my last post was pretty melodramatic. I apologize. I must filter before I start writing. Haha
Since I’m not working this week, I’ve had quite a bit of free time. Some of it helpful, a lot of it involving too much sleep and too much Netflix OnDemand. It’s an addiction. It will get worse once we get the disc for the Wii to play Netflix. Must. Get. A. Life.
But until that happens, I come to my blog.
Also, after yesterday, I will NEVER donate money to my alma mater. Never.
I’ve mentioned that I’ve had problems figuring out what I need to do in order to get licensed in other states to teach. It’s a massive headache of bureaucratic paperwork. And paying over $300 in fees to work. I am on the wrong career path. I should have been an OHSA major. ($75,000 starting sounds much more appealing).
So, because of all this confusion, I decided to quit racking my brain and ask the people who have dealt with this is before and get paid thousands each year to work in the education department.
Sidenote: Because I was secondary English edu, I was basically an English major who took a few education classes. The education department hates this because they aren’t in control and the two departments despise each other, so the students who pay their salaries get put in the middle.
So, I find out that the head of the department can help. I decide to head over to campus and see if she can talk to me fore 10 minutes and help me figure it out.
Me: Is Dr. ****** Available?
Receptionist: This is the only day this week that she will be in the office. Therefore, she is too busy to talk to you.
WHAT?!?! Shouldn’t she take the ONLY day she is in the office to help out the students she works for?
Nope. So, I get passed down the chain to someone who kind of knows what to do, but can’t really help and basically ends up telling me to call someone else. But all the while with a smile on her face.
No moolah for them from the lawyer and the future college professor. So there.
I also have been working on the wedding ceremony. I FINALLY finished it. After about 10 revisions and numerous people looking over it and catching things to change.
It makes it a little more real. I am actually able to visualize the wedding. I can picture myself standing at the altar, hearing the words, looking at fiance. It gives me goosebumps.
I’ve been pretty detached in some ways. It hasn’t REALLY hit me until recently. We had a long engagement (18 months), so planning for something a year and a half away makes it hard to feel real.
In 52 days, I will have a new last name, new future, and just about everything will change. I’m looking forward to it. But it is sure going to be different.
For the lack of any new or interesting pictures, I leave you with a couple of my favorite videos.
I know it was shown all over the place, but I love it. If only I weren’t so white and had some rhythm. Our first dance might be interesting….
If I’m ever in a bad mood, I just watch this. Instant smile.
I hope you all have a good day. Enjoy the weather, if it’s pretty where you are, and find time for yourself!
Now, to force myself to the gym….
New Teacher. New Wife.
