Life is getting real.
I graduate in a little over two months. And right when I was sitting here worrying about what life would look like after Christmas, a job landed in my lap.
Not really. But a friend told me about an opening, I applied, I interviewed, and I got it. Simple as that.
I will be taking the position of a fifth grade teacher at a small Christian school in January! To say that I am excited is an understatement. And here’s the kicker. I’m going to have eleven students. I have sixty-three right now. 11. 63. Big difference, no? I’m so excited that I’ll get to work in a Christian environment! And, it’s going to be a much smoother transition for me to enter mid-year rather than to take on a post at a public school.
Now, life isn’t going to be all sunshine and daisies. I am not going to live in the town that I work because it’s not the safest environment, so I’m going to make the 45 minute commute with a friend and we are going to split gas. Because this is a small, private school, my paycheck will not be huge – but it will be enough.
God is continually watching out for me.
I’m working on a place to live at the moment, and I think that is about to work itself out for me. Pray for me next week as I meet some perspective roommates. Lord willing, it will all be secured soon!
Aside from my exciting news, life has been really good lately. I attended New Stage’s Unframed Season Reveal Party on Saturday, where some friends won awards for their acting talents and I saw some other people and had a grand old time. And because I just can’t stay away from the theatre for too long, I have a lot of theatre stuff coming up. On Monday I’m going to an audition (wish me broken legs!), and then that weekend I am seeing not one, not two, but three plays and that makes me ridiculously happy.
Until next time (Which will be before next week! Promise!)
