Sniffle. Well, wee fan base, we knew it was coming. I have four more weeks – one more session – and then boom, out the UBC door. Sniffle. I also found out today that they only need summer teachers for two months at most in the summer and even that is not guaranteed. Sigh. Well, when I started I thought it was only going to be two weeks and then it stretched to the full 10, so that’s nice. But really and obviously, I can’t be counting on UBC’s ELI to make a living. I knew that from the onset and yet. And yet. It’s been really great though – pulled me out of my 4 straight months (and 4 days) of unemployment which is great and it helped me develop a much better mindset. I don’t want to lose that once the hazy days of unemployment start up again.
Well, for the next four weeks I have a nice schedule – I’ll simply be doing a morning class again which is lucky instead of the split shift of last session. Twas good to have had that though – now I can say I’ve taught a variety of different classes at ELI. So, back to getting up early but also finishing fairly early in the afternoon and since I’m more used to the schedule, I trust I won’t be as tired in the afternoons! It’s nice to have my own full morning class back and a somewhat higher level too.
My response to having only four weeks left of (great!) work was to go and buy a bunch of magazines at the magazine store. Uh well.
Oooh and I’ve already bought a March bus pass – a bit of a treat really. I’ll only need it for three work weeks but since I don’t have a car anymore I’m sure I’ll more than use it.
Okay, nothing too exciting today. I’m going to read a magazine and take a nap.
