About

This blog is a collection of many things. Chief among them my thoughts on being a substitute teacher. These thoughts included my amusement at some of the funny things kids have said (although my personal favourite I can’t share because it involves a debate between two students on my last name). It also has my thoughts on other things in my life – being single and feeling too focused on trying to build a career to really pursue any romantic entanglements. As well as that feeling that a student could wander on to a dating site and discover that I, their teacher, am on said dating site. My thoughts on being a boomerang kid – as many of us recent university graduates are – in which we aren’t making enough money to support ourselves, and must move home temporarily to save up money.

Being a 20-something adult in this day and age doesn’t exactly make sense the way it used to. I’m not even a quarter of a century old, yet I hold two university degrees and have managed to at least get my foot in the door for my career path. However, on top of that I’m working an two additional part time jobs with very flexible hours, as well as picking up short contract jobs courtesy of my former boss. Since graduation last spring, I’ve had a total of 5 different jobs (and by jobs I mean have signed a contract), not to mention the countless extra odd jobs (babysitting, working exhibitions on weekends, etc). The nature of my work is unpredictable – hence the instability of my income. It’s not ideal, but it’s a start.

  3. Stopped blogging? Miss your posts.

    • Just got caught up with real life. That’s what happens when you’re working multiple jobs/volunteering/trying to maintain a social life I guess! I’m going to try to start up again now that I have some more stories from teaching though.
