quiz day ~ thanks kwizgiver

so i was brain dead today - what is really scarey is that, i agree w/ most of these

You Are Not Prissy

You're the furthest thing from a princess - and you probably stay far away from any princess types you know.

You have an easygoing approach to living. It doesn't take a lot to make you happy.

And when life requires it, you're ready to get your hand a little dirty.

There's no problem you're too prissy to tackle!

The PJ's You Are Most Like: No PJ's

You're a bit of a hedonist - opting for comfort over everything else

You have an understated, easy sexiness that men love

You'll risk that for the feeling of sheets against your bare skin!

You Are Catwoman

"Life's a bitch. Now so am I."

You Are A Chocolate Ice Cream Girl

Dramatic. Powerful. Flirty.

super trainer

so, those of you who have been following my saga in the gym know i have a trainer whom i call "super trainer", or ST

for those of you out of the loop, this is because ST is 40 w/ the body of a 30 yr old (and i say that because i am 30 - but i am mistaken for early 20's a lot)

not only that, but she has 2 daughters - 18 & 16 - and she doesn't look like she ever had a kid... she practices what she preaches - she eats well, she continually increases her training knowledge, and she listens to me as her client - but she doesn't treat me like just a client - plus she has always extended my sessions longer than my paid for time :) (how can you complain about THAT - ok, except when it hurts)

originally, i only would work with ST every 3-4 weeks, when i was bored and needed a routine boost... but then i got sick and the deal was that i could return to the gym but only under supervision - so i called ST and so i booked tons of sessions with her - and yeah - it hurts the wallet...

since last summer when i started working out i have lost @ 60 pounds.... the last few months the scale hasn't moved - but i still find i need to buy new clothing as the stuff i own (and the replacement stuff too) is too big & keeps falling off.... YES - i know fat takes up less space than muscle - but there is still a bit to go....

but back to ST.... tomorrow is about her - for those of you who paid attention when i wrote about her before, you know she has cancer - breast cancer - CANCER DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE, no matter how much you take care of yourself! ..... and tomorrow is her mastectomy... so for those of you who pray, please throw one out for ST.....

job hunt 7


crap ass school district's policy is "no references - ESPECIALLY NOTHING IN WRITING"

major metropolitan school distrct is holding their line and won't let me sign my contract until their official reference forms are filled out - one of which must be done by my CURRENT prinicipal

so here i am stuck in the middle....

so i printed out the e-mail that MMSD sent me on SATURDAY (ok, seriously, you couldn't send it on friday when i could do something about it or just WAIT till monday - NO - you sent it on the weekend so i could stew/freak about it)

so i went back to crap ass school district and showed them the e-mail and the form... and they said "well you know the policy" and i replied well they won't give me a contract until these are filled out and i won't resign until they give me a contract.... also, may i see the actual policy....... to which i was told: "take the forms to the references and tell them to send them back to PSYCHO BITCH PERSONELL DIRECTOR FOR VETTING and then we will mail them out."

Reference 1 did the form in front of me and had me take it back to personell myself - gave me a kick ass reference (inclduing checking "hire w/ enthusiasm"

Reference 2 / Principal is out of town for the rest of the month so i had to go to the head prinicipal of the building....he didn't know i was job hunting like his assistant principal did but wasn't put out about it because he knew i was out of his building since last january when i requested to go to an elementary and it was approved.... i told him it was going to move me closer to family and that my dad had been having some health issues (which is all true.... i didn't tell him WHICH family... and my dads' health issues he has had FOR YEARS and the dr thought there was a problem but it turns out there isn't.... AND FOR ALL YOU KARMA FREAKS - MY DAD TOLD ME TO USE HIM AS MY EXCUSE WHEN TALKING TO THE ADMINISTRATOR)......but anyway, i digress... i don't know how he evaluated me because he wanted to actually hear from personell himeself that he could do the form....

Reference 3 did the form by having me sit in the hall and then we walked it back to personell together... i was able to that he scored me in the score box all in the top 2 boxes except for 1 box and that was in the middle (which is still a positive)... none were negative scores... i just don't know what he wrote.....

so hopefully next week i will get a call about signing....

job hunt 6

major metropolitan area school offered me a job!!!!

ok, so TECHNICALLY, they TENTATIVELY offered me a job, pending my references & FBI clearance checks

the waiting is KILLING ME!!!

the down side - i will still be teaching high school kids - actually i will be teaching exactly what i am teaching now.... so in some ways that is good because i know i am good at what i do

but EVERYTHING ELSE will make it worth it.... housing in the area is actually affordable - my raise will make it even nicer (can you say laundry IN my own place - no more hoarding quarters!!!! nor fighting for a machine or doing laundry at 7 am on a sunday!!!)

plus it is a real city with real city theaters, museums, mass transit (read:trains, and metro/subway equivalent, real airport - not a dinky tin can hub that sends you west to go east or south to go north)

and - uh... the ummmmm.. online dating um sites... well, lets just say... as soon as i changed my zip code location in my profile - i can't keep up with the # of matches being sent my way

and my family has already said they will come and visit me... some have already check the major league sporting schedules to see if they can get tickets and vacations to match up!

Job Hunting 5

OMG - i have SO MUCH to say.....

1st - i think i REALLY AM GOING TO MOVE!!!

2nd - last week i went to a teacher job fair and was offered, not 1, not 2, but 3 jobs - ON THE SPOT!!!! (the 4th interview couldn't because they already had offered the job to someone else and were waiting to find out if it was accepted or not.)

3rd - i was supposed to go up in a big metal bird in the sky today to another job fair - but that district FUCKED UP BIG TIME!!!! fortunately i found out BEFORE i got on the plane... so i cancelled those plans and that leads us to.....

4th - i turned my keys in today from crap ass high school this morning.... crap ass district has "supposedly"given me my bid request to work in an elementary school next fall - but i haven't received my conformation letter yet - and i won't for another 3 or so weeks.... but it HAS been confirmed that i am out of crap ass high school......

5th - after said keys were turned in i drove a very long time to very nice hotel (i will post pictures cause you know i am weird like that when i get home) and tomorrow morning i will be attending a job fair in a major metropolitan area along the eastern seaboard


~~~ now, i KNOW some of you are asking/saying "WTF is she doing at ANOTHER job fair if she was offered 3 jobs last weekend..... the main reason i want out of crap ass high is that it is in the arm pit of america - there is no jewish community (and while this isn't a be all end all - it has negatively effected my dating life as mentioned in previous posts), there is no cultural life, if i NEED to get to my family - or they me - in case of emergency it is virtually impossible (and yes, as much as i bitch about them i still love them and want them in my life)

the offers came from a great district that would give me my dream classroom and a pay raise... for me to be able to afford my housing i would have to commute an hour - EACH WAY.... the closest temple is an hour away - the opposite direction from the affordable housing..... same w/ the cultural life.... and there is the same problem w/ the family issue....

THIS district, well, i might not get my dream classroom - but my LIFE will have, well more of a life. My dad works 90 due north via a TRUE interstate. There are multiple temples for me to choose from. My sorority has an active alumna group in the area, as does my university. The district offers tuition reimbursement so I could start taking classes again (which i have wanted to do for a while but i just cant afford to do since crap ass district doesn't reimburse).

ALSO - all of my family lives w/in 3 hours of this city - and if they don't want to drive they can get on Amtrak to get here - so no more lame excuse to not visit!
