Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The last two terms pretty much burned me out on teaching. So these
days, I'm working at the big auto auction site up in Manheim. The
job os "get the car, drive the car, park the car, lather, rinse
repeat". It's outdoors, the guys I work wit are all my age
(actually, I'm one of the younger guys), and all-in all, it's a
good place to work. I haven't given up on teaching, but I need to
be way more picky.
Finally, after three years, I have teaching work. I am adjunct at
two schools, on near Reading PA, the other in Carlisle, PA. I'm
back to teaching (mostly) computer stuff, including "keyboarding"
(a.k.a. "typing") Which is ironic, since I can't. But, when we get
to the back half of the class, I'll be able to coach them in the
vagaries of MS Word.
Making it up as I go along. I moved here from the ashes of my life
in SoCal in September 2007. I'm getting there. I was teaching
computers at the tech school. Got let go, then put together several
part-time teaching gigs, and was camping out w/ a friend. She move
out to be with her parents, as they are pretty frail. No longer
teaching so I'm reading, either tech stuff, or since my daughter
introduced me to Paper Back Swap, I'm catching up on some pleasure
reading. Posting to a couple of blogs as the spirit moves, tending
my little garden in the back. Been volunteering at the local
I've also discovered how much of a time-suck Twitter can be.
Fortunately, I can kick the habit easily, since my time has been
taken up with teaching.
8/1/2013 - I'm recuperating from back surgery. Four of the five
lumbar vertebrae were decompressed, so walking is now a much more
interesting thing to do and a pain-free experience. About to start
out-patient rehab. Dropped a bunch of weight lately for no special
reason - I think it's the lack of job stress. Once I get into the
habit of regular exercise (PT), I'd like to continue, and get
myself into some kind of decent shape. Right now, I'm just reveling
in being pretty much pain-free!!
9/12/2013 - Dr is quite pleased with my recovery. He OK'd more PT,
which is good. My left calf in particular is weaker from four
months of disuse. Pondering Major House Cleaning for this weekend -
I finally have the energy and mobility to tackle it!
