So this week was pretty shitty. Work was horrible — I had the same class at the same school multiple times, and had been under the impression that I’d be going for a couple days in a row, which is good as I get paid salary if I work more than two days in a row. Turns out the school had made a mistake in the system, and it was two half days. They didn’t penalize me for it the second day, thank goodness, but seriously.
I don’t usually say yes to half days unless it’s the night before, or it’s a teacher I’ve subbed for before and I know the kids well because it screws me out of a full day’s work, which pays more. Most teachers are understanding of that if you say no and it’s pretty far ahead, so I usually wait until closer to the time to accept.
So I felt pretty screwed for work. Not a big deal, but still pretty screwed.
Oh well, I’ll just get to know this class and maybe I’ll get regular work from this teacher.
Turns out it was an awful class. Really, just awful. Every day I came home feeling like I suck at my job and asking myself why the hell I chose to teach. And unfortunately, it really drained me this week. I was exhausted last night after a late rehearsal and haven’t slept well all week.
Today was great, at least. My performance went well, and now I’m anxiously waiting to hear about my audition. I’m supposed to hear either way by Monday at the latest.
Despite that, I’m taking a bloody break. I wrote a post every single day this week even though it was a really shitty week, and now I’m freaking tired and not in the mood.
I love you all and thank you so much for always reading and stopping to leave me a note. I promise tomorrow’s post will be back to my usual.
In the meantime… how was your week?
