A Little More Direction...

Okay, so I have a bit more direction...

I didn't get the job. But they were impressed enough with me to ask me to please come in for an author event and to please propose a couple of classes because they would love to have me teach, They also wanted me to be a facilitator for a group of homeschool parents, but that would actually interfere with my new school schedule!

So I go to the advising session, which was awesome, but I was too late to get a drug and alcohol class, so I'm taking a couple of Gen Ed classes. Psychology 201 and Writing 121. I register online today.

I also applied for another job... only nine hours a week at a low income housing complex... I'd be doing after school activities with middle grade kids. I would really, really like this one and the hours work out well with my schedule. So please say prayers that I get an interview. I have no formal training with kids, but have done a ton of volunteer work in that area. So maybe.

If I work for a social work, I would have a better chance of getting into the counseling program and the job might fill my practicum requirements as well.

So... we'll see.

But I am registering for classes today. One step at a time:)

The best thing is that you're moving forward! You can never stay still in life. It's either forward or back. And you've made your choice!
And it's awesome!
