    I always work ESY. I'll also be working my second job.

    This year I'll be moving. I finally decided to buy a house instead of renting so that will be my main project!

    Oh geez. Many good thoughts your way because moving is a project.

    I only have 3 more years before I retire, so would probably stick it out because the extra salary would help to pad my nest-egg. If I was mid-career, I would have to consider it carefully; with the current workload expectations, I need more time away from the classroom than that.

    Haha! My family and I traditionally take a week ish camping trip before school starts back. They do boy scouts so I usually volunteer to go on the trips.

    I'm very good with my money and saved enough for a decent down payment. The mortgage will be about the same as what rent is going for in this area (Florida), so it made more sense to start building my own wealth vs someone else's.

    I work summer school but I'll have about 4 weeks off. I'm definitely going to take my dog to the park more. Maybe pack a picnic basket and hang out if it's not too hot. I read a lot, organize the house, and just relax. My husband and I might plan a short vacation but they usually aren't more than 4-5 days long.

    I think and this may just be... me... being a bit arrogant, but I think they may have been a little threatened/ off put by my experience and BIG personality.
    You think they'd WANT teachers because we already know how to handle children. I guess not?

    I usually travel (several countries in Europe, including my own), camp out of state. (last year Nevada and Utah), other than that just camp and hike the lake, the mountains and the river in the area.

    This year as soon as school is out I'm driving from California to Alaska and then back through 3 other states. IT will take 5-6 weeks, camping along the way, hunting in Alaska. Then when I'm home, I might still go to Utah and visit a few places, then camp in the local mountains and lakes. I'm buying a small kayak next week, so I know I'll be enjoying the water and even fishing.
    This might be my best summer yet :)

    Sometimes you just need to know the right people to get certain jobs or maybe they see you as overqualified.

    Eat, sleep, travel and avoid as many children as possible. Great time of the year!

    Maybe tone down your “BIG” personality because that can be off-putting for some people. No offense, of course! Just act like they expect you to during the interview process and don’t go over the top. After all, what if it’s what’s keeping you from getting hired?

    I wanted to see Ma, but I'll probably go back for Spiderman. I'm binging Blindspot on Hulu.

    So far in total, I've finished up Family Guy, South Park, Glass, Broken, Split, started the In Between, Black Lightning, Enemy Within( why did you cancel it NBC?) and going start the Gifted in a few days.
