Life Changes

Teaching contracts at good ol' Gratz Brown come out in March, people.  Time to make some big, big decisions.

I'm looking into leaving Mobtown.  Matt and I want to buy a house and get out of our matchbox apartment.  We're tired of wasting our money on rent and want to have a place of our own that we can decorate, landscape and pay for for the next 35 years or so. We DON'T want to do that in Moberly...and I'm not excited about driving an hour each day to and from a job I don't enjoy.

Long story short, I'm on the hunt for a job.  I had a screening interview in Hallsville on Tuesday that I think went really well.  I really liked everything they said, and they smiled and nodded and agreed a lot while I was talking so that's good right?  I also turned in a new resume at North Callway, where Matt works.  This weekend I'm gonna get online and print off some more applications to mail in.

Here's the issue: Hallsville says they will call back in a week or so to schedule another interview if I make the cut, and they will make a final decision the first week of April. That means the earliest I could know if I have another job for sure is the first week in April...but I have to turn in my contract by the end of March. I don't have to explain to you how terrifying not having a job right now can be. The practical side of me says to hold on to my job for dear life.

The Friday afternoon me says "GET OUT.  GET OUT NOW!"

Being a grown-up is tough.
