New FT job - missing the forum!

Post by CATZ on Tue Feb 22, 2011 10:30 pm

Well, an opportunity came up that I just couldn't refuse!

It means I'm even busier than I was before and only get to catch highlights here on the forum once in awhile. So if you don't see me around very much, this is why...

...through an acquaintance at church I was asked if I was interested in teaching Event Planning. I already teach Wedding Planning at a local university (evenings), but this was an opportunity to teach f/t at a private college. I was called the next day to come in for an interview. After checking with the powers that be, I was hired on the Thursday...only to start the next day. I was introduced to the students on the Friday and started teaching on the Monday!

It's been a whirlwind since - getting course materials and figuring out their way of doing things is a bit of a challenge. I've been dealing with a passive aggressive instructor from another campus that wanted my job, and is supposed to be getting me the info. Anyway, it's right up my alley and the timing couldn't be better. It's a day program from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. I can still pick up my kids after school and get the summer off with them. I love teaching so I'm very happy with the opportunity. It's going to be challenging doing all the things I like to do, but I'm going to really love having a regular paycheque again. It's been 6 years since I've worked full time. Both my girls are in school f/t now so it'll be OK for them. I'll miss some assemblies and have to limit my PAC presence, but I still do a lot for them with promotions.

I hope I can still fit the occasional facepainting and belly painting gig in, but I guess I'll have to be a little picky about the jobs so I still have family time. Very Happy
Sometimes I feel like I have a double or triple life with all my different interests! lol!

paycheque - so Canadian!! Darren's mom is Canadian, from Newfoundland, but the first house we bought was is Blaine, Washington! We love BC!
Good luck on teaching, your belly paints are so awesome, so I hope you have time. Double life, triple life, I get it!

Good Luck Magna!!

You'll manage. I've always had a fulltime dayjob and paycheque and still get a lot of make-up/face painting work in.

I was thinking of you Shannon, because I knew you had a F/T job as well. Glad to see you have your old profile back Very Happy See...I missed that!

Yeah, I'll be on facebook less too probably, but I do check it everyday at least Very Happy I use lots of scenarios from the forum in my class discussions. It's sure great being connected with you all!

Thanks!
