Time Flies!

Wow.. I haven't updated this blog in a while!! I do apologize to the three people out there in cyber land who actually read this thing. I have been swamped with the summer grad class from hell.. so I have not had much time for leisure activities.

After almost a month's absence from blogging, I wish I had more exciting personal thing to write about, but alas, I don't. I have been sending out numerous resumes online to local school districts, but have yet to get a single interview. I even applied to two positions at my old high school, and had a friend of the person in charge of personnel put in a good word for me... still nothing. Ugh. It's a sad thing when your old alma mater doesn't even call!

I have become beyond burnt out with Walmart after 8 long years working retail with that company. Our customers are some of the trashiest people out there... who seem to delight in throwing red-neck hissie fits over the smallest matter simply because they feel they have the right to do so. I never saw my parents or grandparents treat store employees the way in which we are treated by customers every day... and it is a very sad commentary about society that things are becoming so bad. It started with the way people dressed, not caring how they looked or having any respect for their appearance, and now, it is no surprise, that their attitudes have become just as ugly. When the fall semester starts up and I begin subbing again, I will be dropping down to three days a week, 15 hours total. Anything beyond that, couple with the responsibilities of grad work and subbing, I would crack.

So that's it.. nothing really new. I hope to be back with more interesting news of soap box speeches in the near future. :)
