Ugh. What A Week.

So.... I lost my job. Gr. It turns out that the college that I currently instruct at is trying to get accredited for a Baccalaureate program, and guess what? You need a master's degree. Which, of course, I don't have. Gr. I hate looking for jobs and I hate looking for a job at the holidays even more. I'm trying not to panic. And some days I do very well with that. :) And on a more serious note than you will typically see on my blog - I think I've realized the reason why I panic. This might sound crazy, but I feel like if I don't panic, I'll lose my edge and not care and not actually get anything done. It's weird that I've convinced myself that I need the adrenalin of panic to be productive. It’s actually not true, but for some reason it feels true. So, I’m focusing on not panicking and staying productive anyway. I think I’ve been doing pretty well. Brian’s been really helpful and sweet, so I’ve been really thankful for that.

Brian and I have actually thought that maybe I should be easing into a tutoring business, but I know how long it takes to build up clientele and I’m thinking it would be nice to have a steady income so that I can build it up slowly. So, that’s what we’re hoping for. We’ll see. *sigh*

Job searches are no fun. Especially when you're just thrown into one. I'll be praying for you, that something good will turn up for you soon.

Sorry to hear about your job. :( They are losing out. Just cause you have a masters degree doesn't make you a better teacher! I hope the job search goes okay. Let us know when you have any prospects so we can pray!
