Have spent the morning updating my resume (screw the accents) and filling out all sorts of shit on complicated online application forms. I’ve decided, much to my chagrin and for reasons that I don’t really want to go into here, that I need to go somewhere else next year, most preferably to a new district entirely. My head already hurts just from the revisions to the resume, which I haven’t touched since moving away from Chicago in 2007; I’m sure as soon as I wade into having to get copies of my transcripts from the three different universities that I have degrees from it will much improve the quality of my day.
Also today, if I can squeeze it in, some work on final revisions and formatting for Benevolence Archives, and oh right I have a birthday party to run at work tonight. And tomorrow I get to do mortar & tape work in the bathroom, which I’ve never done before and am sure to screw up in a most epic fashion.
I managed to get all my grading done yesterday before leaving work. I think I’m grateful for that; it means that I might get half an hour to relax this weekend if I play my cards right.
(EDIT: The University of Chicago, amazingly, doesn’t charge for electronic transcripts– the other two universities hit me up for $15 to email me a .pdf file. Apparently they’ve decided that the hundred million dollars that it cost me to get a Master’s Degree from them covers future transcript requests. Hooray!)
