Monday January 23rd

It’s 1:39am. I cannot sleep. I’m in the floor, of course, so that doesn’t help, and I have a million things racing through my mind. I emailed the 2 charter schools and said I already had a job and I wasn’t interviewing now, so that’s something off my plate for this week. I have an interview tomorrow (today) at 2pm. I feel like canceling it since I won’t have my portfolio or my clothes. I will have to figure out something to wear. It’s a pain in the ass to get to the school, so that makes me not want to go. I will have to ride a bus to get there, so tomorrow will be a first time for that. 

Later, that same day…

I got some great news today! My furniture is coming tomorrow! I feel like a little kid on Christmas Eve. I completely cleared my schedule. I had a job interview, an appointment to get my driver’s license, and an appointment to get finger printed for my job. I moved all of them to later in the week so I can have the whole day with no where to be but here, organizing and putting away my stuff. Don’t get me wrong, sleeping on the floor sucks serious ass, but the delay in my furniture arriving has given me some time to clean a little I cleaned the floor in the living room today, so I can put the rug down when it gets here! I hope the movers are good. I just want my shit. This time tomorrow, I should be in my own bed. I thought the same thing on Friday, though, so I hope I don’t jinx myself. 

I had a job interview today with a school WAY up in the Bronx. I don’t think I’ve ever been up that far before. It sucked ass because I had to take a bus part of the way. I don’t like to ride the bus. I don’t understand the routes or stops and I was so far away today in kind of a sketch area. I would never teach at that school just because I would have to deal with so much bull shit to get there. The interview was with the principal only- it was really a pre-interview interview, it turns out. He apparently “screens” people before he allows the real interview to take place. He was kind of annoying and I definitely did not click with him. He was very, very gay, and I usually do well with the gays. No, that school is a no for sure. I have a couple of more doe school interviews this week. I can’t worry- no, wrong word, I can’t think about that right now. I have my stuff coming tomorrow!!!! AND, I have my orientation on Wednesday from 9 to 1 for my job that I actually already have. I don’t know what to do about the job situation. I don’t know if I need to try to move to the doe schools or just stay where I am. Who the fuck knows.
