I just landed the job I had been salvating and holding my breath for!
It's only mornings and is basically designing creative lessons and playing with kids. no more A SAYS A A A A APPLE!!! no more working late into the night every night. no more hour commute (though I do have to move). no more stockings and heels. no more required makeup. no more suits.
it's finger paint and edible paste starting in August.
plus the school is called "the fun house" and as my friend Robert says
"and then you'd be working in the fun house! can it get much better than that?"
