Fighting the urge to eat in consolation...

Yes, I was one of the two final candidates.  Yes, they did call for references for me.  Yes, I was up against a long-term sub who they were familiar with.
Yes, I have a temporary job awaiting me--1926 miles away--for 6 weeks. 

I am still totally sad that I didn't get the job.  It is a really awesome district.  I want to teach.  I don't want to leave OR.

I am trying to avoid eating. I want to though. I really want to.


  1. I'm sorry you didn't get the job. I can understand not wanting to leave home.

    On the other hand, can I interview you for a story I'm working on about how teachers prepare for the school year? I'd love to get the perspective of a long-term sub. Send me a message on Facebook or something and let me know!

  2. It's going to work out! Keep thinking about that comment regarding "nothing tasting as good as looking good feels." I could use that right now, too. I'm so proud of you. You've made huge progress. I think you're right: in a couple of weeks, you'll be distracted, busy, running in high gear--regardless of your FTE. You'll be thinking about other things. Stay strong, Dear! I'm thinking of you!


I love when people comment!!! Good, bad, or even ugly--feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to respond!
