I got a full time jobbbbbb!!!! Sorta. There is a catch.
One of the full-time faculty members resigned as a result of health issues, so they need someone to contract for full-time money for the Spring semester. No benefits...but full-time money is a BIG increase. After the Spring semester, there will be, by law, a full-blown search for a faculty member. However, the person who's so kindly been filling the position usually gets the job (that's how I got edged out of the TWO full-time positions I interviewed for this summer).
YAYYYYY!!! I'll still be teaching the three courses I'd planned on (two lit courses, one technical writing) and working in the Writing Center three hours per day. So, to recap, I'll be in class from 8:00-11:30 on Tuesday/Thursday mornings and in the WC from 12-3 every day. That equals a lot of freer time for moi. Pretty nifty gig, eh?? And full-time money means I can cut back on my other job(s). I'll be quitting my freelance job ASAP and cutting back at the other community college. I'll probably try to hold onto an online class for them, but that's IT. Mama needs some downtime. Can we say, ANDI GETS TO FINISH HER BOOK!
Celebrate with me! If this were a real celebration, what type of food/drink would you bring? Make it tasty!
I would provide the sopapilla cheesecake and a very LARGE bottle of champagne.
