Those Crossed Parts Paid Off!

Not only am I safe and sound at home in NC, I got a job on the way!!!

I was rolling through South Carolina when the community college that rejected me for the full-time gig called to offer me a part-time position for the fall! I'll be teaching two classes.

The teaching gig along with my freelance contract should be enough to leave me sitting pretty until at least December. I'm hopeful that the part-time job could turn full-time. It's a proverbial "foot in the door" I guess you could say.

I'm VERY excited to still be teaching and I'm VERY relieved that I won't have to have sell my eggs and plasma to live.

  3. Well, thank God! The blood loss to certain body parts has caused great distress...

    Congratulations!! I won't do the bookstore thing to celebrate, but I'll probably have a beer or two in your name, if that's appropriate!

  10. That's great!

    I'm waiting on job news myself. I'm leaving teaching and going back to school. I'm waiting to hear about my application to a high end downtown Chicago restaurant. My wife's best friend is the sommelier, so hopefully that will help.
