It's hard to believe that June has already come and gone. I've spent most of the month sending out job applications, but so far, I have had now luck. I'm going to keep trying though. Another thing that I have been doing is writing. Nearly everyday, I write something. I wrote my blog posts everyday, but I've written a few blog posts in advance. I'm working on a new series for my Sunday blog. I wanted to look more closely at 1 Corinthians 13. It's often called the love chapter, and since last Friday, the LGBT of America have a lot of love to celebrate.
I also had phenomenal sex with my boyfriend on Monday night. It was a kind of going away, because he will be gone nearly the whole month of July. It looks like my right hand (or hopefully another wet dream or two) will be keeping me busy and somewhat satiated until he gets back.
In addition to writing and filling out job applications, I have also,started volunteering at a museum. Most museums want someone with some experience in a museum and the volunteer work that I will be doing will let me see all the various workings of the museum. It is a state run museum and since the legislature of Alabama seems to enjoy cutting their budget, they rely on a large number of volunteers and part time employees. Also, on the museum front, I am looking into an online museum studies certificate program that is offered by one of America's top universities. It looks like a good program and it will add to my credentials. Though it's the least expensive of the programs like this one, it still isn't terribly cheap, but I think I have found a way to afford it.
I am looking more into museum work. Five years teaching middle and high school is enough. God bless the people who make that a lifelong career. The only teaching I want to do from here on out is college teaching whether it's full time or as an adjunct. This doesn't mean that I am absolutely ruling out middle and high school, desperation drove me to that job and desperation may drive me to take a job like it just at a different school.
So that's the update from here. As the motto of the New York Times states this is "All the News That’s Fit to Print."
