Writing Workshop

I may have picked the worst possible career to get into at this time. Today at Bonaire they had a staff meeting after school and talked about budget cuts. Its a little scary to think that I may not be able to get a job when I graduate. Apparently this year there are only 52 people retiring compared to the normal 200. So basically they are short on spots. And also they need to cut 4.5 million dollars from the county's budget and since 89% of the budget is personnel, there is going to be a lot of relocating people. There have been tons of rumors about job cutting and such. The board of Houston county's goal is to not cut jobs but to just move people around. Which means even less jobs available for newer teachers.
Another thing I want to vent about is classes. I absolutely hate my classes. Tuesdays and Thursdays are the bane of my existence. Plus the amount of work that is being placed upon us is ridonkulous. The assignments do not better me as a future teacher. They are not helping to learn more ways to help and teach kids. They are busy work.
Ok next thing on my list is gym. I am so glad that I get to go to the gym. Its actually something I look forward to. I wish I could go more often.
So I guess life is going ok. A bit too stressful and lonely for my taste but still I guess it could be worse. I just wish I had someone to share it with.
