"Understand the Dream is Over..."
Wow. A month. And so much has happened in that month. So let's get down to it.
I will have to change the URL of this site now, because as of this morning, I am no longer a teacher. Yes, it's true. I submitted my letter of resignation, with, well, resignation. The less said, the better, I suppose. I will limit my further commentary on the circumstances of my fall to the following:
I was offered the opportunity to resign. The sudden job change was unforeseen. The justice of the action is in question.
However, since severance pay is a good thing, I hereby speak no evil of my employers. I know, I did not excell as much as I could have, and I did not improve in the ways I was advised to improve. I earned this. But my lackluster performance notwithstanding, I was blindsided. All indications were that while the ice was thin beneath me, I still had the opportunity to move. This turned out not to be the case.
So now, I revert back temporarily to my former self, in which Papa John's Pizza is my only source of income. Not for long, don't worry. But for the immediate time, it is.
On the bright side of this situation, I will have more time to read, more time to write, and hopefully more time to post. So never fear, dear readers, I will keep you abreast of all my comings and goings.
I appreciate the warm sentiments that I have already received from some of you. I know the rest of you share their feeling. Thank you all for your support and affection.
Don't worry, it's not like I'm dying or anything. I'll bounce back. The fat ones always do. Cuz you can't fight physics.
If any of you would like to send my lovely parting gifts and monetary support, you know where to find me. ;-)
