@lolakimono     Well, let's talk FASHION for that new position...You must be excited and nervous, but what's the dress code?  Must you dress professional or is it Business Casual?  Can you wear your closet or are you adding new items to your wardrobe?  I mean, this is the style sister forum, right?

But none quite like the element of surprise

In addition to teaching, some of you know that I was also responsible for exterminating the mice in my classroom.

 

Students had to eat in the classroom due to the Covid protocols of not having 2,000 + students together in the cafeteria.

 

Since January, I exterminated 19 mice in my room.

 

There were droppings E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E- not good with asthma.

In May, I also broke up a fight in my (former) intern's classroom.  He just stood there and stared while one girl was on top of other punching her senseless.

 

I jacked up both wrists and am now dealing with worker's comp, so that was pretty much the final straw.


Horrifying

@lolakimono   Congratulations,,,teaching is life consuming,  I'm assuming this means retiring.  Enjoy your new found freedom!


@phoenixbrd 

I am not retiring- about two decades shy of that!

I am headed to corporate America and my new job starts on July 11.


What will you be doing?

@lolakimono  Congrats on your new job!

What will you be doing in your new career?

That new pendant is gorgeous.

 

I finally drove in PA. I've stayed in, ordered groceries, and used Uber, but I wanted the ID driver's license & to register my car. My sibling's SO picked me up and drove me to get the ID driver's license, and then we had a wonderful breakfast at a restaurant in a historic building. We went back to my place and I used the WAZE app while following to get the new license plate. Then we went to Wegman's; nice store. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but I was having real anxiety about driving when I don't know the area. My next challenge is to drive myself to get the vehicle inspection this week. Baby steps I guess.

 

On the fashion front, I bought this cropped hoodie to wear when AC chills my shoulders. It's not something I'd normally choose, but it works & I like it.
