Still Waiting

I've gotten my first rejection letter. South Jr. High sent me a very kind letter about how hard it was to make their decision, but they have. And I'm not it this time. But I've interviewed at West Jr. High, and I will interview at Central Jr. High next Monday, as well as Lawrence High School and Free State High School. Free State was actually a screening interview, so I will probably be back there at some point for another interview.

I still feel confident that I will get a job, it just seems that God is sort of smacking down my pride about it.

I love Pearls Before Swine. Cute little characters being so very obnoxious. Someday I will be that algebra teacher.

I had my final exam today at 7:30 a.m. I bicycled up to campus, figuring that the exercise would wake me up for the test. It worked. Partly because on the way there I looked down at my rear tire and started to veer off the sidewalk. I wobbled a lot, got back in control, and didn't fall, but my body had already started pumping adrenaline. I was very much awake. And the professor was kind enough to have some bread, cream cheese, and apple juice there for us to munch on. I got there around 7:15, had some food, and got started. It was a difficult test, but not unreasonably so. Took me an hour and half. Not bad considering the cold I am fighting. Some students finished within 45 minutes

Geometry for teachers was an interesting class. A lot more intense than when I studied geometry back in Jr. High. At this point, however, I am happy to be finished with it for one reason, and one reason alone: I will not have to go out on Wednesdays and Thursdays and do homework Wednesday nights.

Happy Rob!

On the work front, my Saturday hours are changing from 1-10 to 10-7. I'm pretty happy about this. It means I will be able to do stuff Saturday nights if we can get a babysitter. It means I won't be going to bed so late, and thus able to wake up more easily on Sunday mornings. It means getting off work before sunset! Huzzah!

Time to pack it in for the night. I need to get some sleep to be ready for tomorrow.

I sent an email to your mom last night telling her I hoped you weren't getting discouraged. The Lawrence school system is not an easy one to crack. One of the experienced teachers in my building tried for years to get a job there and never even got an interview. Of course, I never thought he was a very good teacher, but still, you got past the first gate, and that's a good thing. A job will come; I feel confident of that.

A Brief Introduction

Roblog is my writing lab. It is my goal to not let seven days pass without a new post. I welcome your criticism, as I cannot improve on my own.

Here is a link to my cung post, which remains the only word which I have ever invented, and which has not, as far as I know, caught on. Yet.
