Greetings from New York! I have had a great time up here, but I'm leaving tomorrow. This has been a short, but sensational trip filled with family, old friends (like Thao, Sue R. & Sue I.) and new friends (like Tina). I've loved being here, but I've missed Kevin as well! I had planned on returning tomorrow because there's a big teachers' job fair in Durham on Thursday, but then I also received an email yesterday from one of the schools to which I sent resumes last week! And I have an interview there on Thursday as well.
I have to confess--I know that I'm a really good teacher, but interviewing as an average-sized person is a LOT less intimidating than interviewing as a fat woman was! Rather than worrying about how I look, I can be myself! I'm excited about this new adventure, to tell the truth! I have heard from one of my colleagues in the elementary school who was also laid off, and she, too, has an interview on Thursday! I told her last week that the next time we had lunch, it would be to celebrate, and that certainly seems to be coming true!
Have a great day, and say a little prayer (or wish me luck, however you ask for intervention!) that I have a safe trip home and a great interview on Thursday! And thanks, as always, for sticking with me. It means so very much!
