Ok, guys, I am actually a little sorry for what I wrote on Friday. The fact that it’s only a little is because though I stand by what I said, I really didn’t mean to go on a full blown rant. I’ve been having a really shit time at my office and even the slightest things have been setting me off.
I feel like my boss hates me. I hate my job. I’ve applied to countless other jobs and haven’t heard anything back. However, that woman I mentioned in my post has ALWAYS annoyed me and it usually gets worse when I’m about to start my period (personally, I think she plans it that way…but that could just be me overthinking things—which is a common occurrence).
I’m really trying to focus on things that make me happy and doing things that relax me or get me out of my house, but with all this weight and hatred for my job, it’s increasingly hard to find that ray of metaphorical sunshine. James says I need a hobby or to start reading again, but the hobbies I want to pursue cost money and I just haven’t felt like picking up a book in a while. Both of those reasons make me feel worse, but I do have one glimmer of hope on the horizon: going back to school.
My current job will pay for me to go back and finish what I started in 2007, BUT I have to wait until 2 weeks before registration, I can only take 1 to 2 classes per semester, and those classes have to be offered online or after 5pm when I get off work. I’m worried that the classes I need to finish school will only be offered during the day and there isn’t even a chance of it being online. I’m still going to hold out hope though. I would love to finish school and go onto being a history teacher with a minor in humanities or art history. That’s my dream. Preferably, I would like to teach either high school or junior college…but seeing as how the current public schooling situation is going on, not only in the state I live in, but the country, I may end up (hopefully) teaching at private school or running a homeschool out of my house. I do feel awful about choosing the private school option, because I was brought up in the public school system, but seeing the way these schools focus on only passing standardized tests to give the school money and giving student athletes essentially a free ride to build up the school’s reputation, I do really think a private school would be the better option.
What are your thoughts on the school systems? It doesn’t matter which country you’re from, I would like to hear about it. How was your education when you were growing up?
Bonus question for an extra 10 points: How do you feel where you work? Do you enjoy your job and what you do? I would like to hear your thoughts and opinions!!
