As you can see, if you have hours of free time and chose to spend it reading my lengthly archive post below, that my interest in keeping a website waxes and wanes more often than the moon. Sometimes I post daily, or more than once a day, and then I'll go for a year or two without posting anything.
Anyway, once again the bug to write about my daily boring life has bit me, so here I am. My last post was in January 2006. Since then I have completed my student teaching, graduated from college, and languished in a year of substitute teaching. I was depressed for the majority of the summer of '06, so it's probably better for everyone that I wasn't blogging during that time. I can't imagine my posts would have consisted of anything more than "my life sucks. i hate everyone." day after day. No one wants that.
I'm still looking for a permanent teaching position. I've had several interviews this summer but nothing has panned out so far. One position was a crushing blow when I didn't get it. I should hear in a week or so about the latest opportunity. I am really not looking forward to another year of subbing. I have resolved that it will be my last year though. Either I'll find a job, move to find a job, or I'll go into something other than teaching.
I still don't have much in the way of a social life. My love life has had but minor blips on the radar in the past year as well. One relationship was a crushing blow when it didn't pan out. I've had a lot of crushing blows in the past year. I'm hoping the rest of this year and the next will be more gentle on me. I did get over all of my defeats rather well, I think, so at least I can say that what hasn't killed me has made me stronger. And more bitter, but that's no go for an inspirational metaphor. No one wants to hear about the icy black hole where my heart used to be. That's depressing.
I've taken up golfing recently and am not terrible, most of the time. I have been reading a lot of good books lately, like for one more day by Mitch Albom, and whip hand by Dick Francis. I've mostly been wasting time on the internet and floating around in the pool. I can't wait until football season, but I am dreading the start of school. I'm always bored but too complacent to do anything about it. My life is very boring, and so this blog will be.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you at least found something that you found interesting or that made you smile. I'll try to write about something funny or interesting each time I post, but I can't guarantee that it won't just be this: "my life sucks. i hate everything."
