Stunned

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," sowing the big, broad, flexible outlook since 2005! If you want some seeds, just holler.

A very curious thing happened today. I got a job.

I've always worked, ever since the summer I turned 16. But in all that time (and it's a lot of time, baby dolls), I've only been a salaried employee for six years. Otherwise I've freelanced it.

This new job is still only part time, no benefits, vacation pay, or sick leave. You know the drill. But it is a regular, dependable paycheck ... not a big one, but dependable.

I will be tutoring small groups of students at the Vo-Tech in language arts and literacy to help them prepare for New Jersey's impossibly rigorous (and mandatory) High School Proficiency Test.

I like the students at the Vo-Tech. And there's no better way to work with them than in small groups. So wish me and my faeries luck as we embark upon this new venture!

Rest assured that "The Gods Are Bored" will continue to publish. I love this doggone blog. It's helped me to connect with so many top-notch individuals. Like you!

Good luck if that is what you want. Enjoy.

I'm thankful that I don't have to work for pay anymore, my little retirement gets me by with my simple needs.

I just work for free now helping others in what little ways I can.

oh i'll stay tuned for this... i'm thinking about going back part-time too. part of me just goes nuts when i think of all the time i'll be away from my bon-bons, vodka and soaps, but the other part of me feels stimulated by the idea.... keep us updated on how it feels to have a "real" job after being on the loose for awhile!

I had wanted to come in and congratulate you yesterday but my computer wouldn't let me into anyone else's blog (the feed was the only access I had).

It must be a wonderful feeling and I hope that it is all you could want. Best of luck to you and enjoy all you can teach as well as learn. :o)
