I know it's been a minute, but I've been working on the same draft since New Year's Day.
I figured I should at least give a little update, just so, you know...you don't think I died or something.
Everything's been pretty bomb so far this year.
Last week was my first week back at school, & of course I read my schedule wrong & missed the entire first day.
I've been working a lot on myself.
Getting my shit together.
Trying to figure out who it is that I want to be.
Trying to figure out what it is that I want to do.
So far, I got nothin'.
I decided to look into becoming an English tutor at my school...just cause I've taken & passed every fucking English course at this school (minus the one I'm currently in).
Seeing as tutoring at my school is a Federal job & you get a decent hourly paycheck, I figured it would be a nice (not to mention easy) way to earn some extra cash.
So the other day, I got my ass lost trying to find the dude in charge of hiring tutors.
I finally find this fool & he walks right past me to answer his phone.
So, I stand at a comfortable distance to respect his privacy.
He gets off the phone, sees me standing there & tries to walk away again.
Me: Excuse me. I wanted to apply for tutoring.
That Guy: What?
Me: I'M INTERESTED IN BECOMING A TUTOR...
That Guy: You want to be a tutor?
Me: Yeah, they told me to come see you.
That Guy: They? They? They? They?
Me: The librar-
That Guy: They? They?
Me: THE LIBRARIANS UPSTAIRS...
That Guy: Do you have references?
Me: *lying* Yeah.
That Guy: Who?
Me: Professor "X".
That Guy: Who?
Me: PROFESSOR "X"...
That Guy: Okay. Fill out this application & when you turn it in, I'll e-mail you & tell you what to do next.
So I get my ass home & shoot 3 of my English professors e-mails asking them for recommendations.
I only needed one, but I did it just to be cautious.
All 3 of them gave me recommendations.
There's 3 courses I'm qualified to tutor in.
Now the only thing standing in my way is an interview with That Guy & I'll have a little part-time job going for me.
Other than that, I was on break prior to last week & didn't do shit but clean my room.
Like I said, there's a pretty big post pending right now & it should touch on a lot of what happened in 2011.
So, stay with me.
I'll be back sooner than you know...
