Yesterday was my first day back at school after about a week and a half of Spring Break. Guess what? Rather than the painfully slow kind of day where every second feels like an hour, it zoomed by! I had a really great day.
Today was also pretty good. We had double block math, which was a but of a bummer, but nothing too bad. At lunch I gave two of my friends a beginner trumpet tutorial (why yes, I play the trumpet :3). It basically consisted of me trying to get them to sticking with mouthpiece practice rather than trying to play the whole trumpet, simply because it's impossible to unless you can buzz your lips!
It went alright, and I feel like a decent teacher. When I was little, I debated about being a teacher when I grow up, like gradeschool. After babysitting for over four hours last night, though, I was completely pooped, and way too frustrated with kids to imagine spending any more time with them. Sometimes it's nice being the youngest!
Later this week (Thursday, actually, is the dreaded day) I'm going to be looking for employment. Gasp! I'm going to ask around town a bit, though, and maybe print out my resumee in advance. I want to work at a small bookstore in town, or maybe volunteer at our local library or newspaper. I'm not sure--I've only had one real office job before, though. It didn't go so well.
I was a file clerk at an eye doctor's office for a month. In grade seven. Eek! I'm not sure if I really enjoyed it--it was tiring, repetitive work and I didn't get to spend any time with people which I've discovered I really enjoy.
I don't like the whole idea of working for money at this age. I know I must sound utterly ancient but I would much rather spent my time focusing on my school work and my writing. Money is a bit of an issue though--even at my age! I know, I'm a freak. I just want to be able to pay for my own stuff without my parents having to step in and spend their own money. Plus if I want to spend my grade eleven year abroad, I need to be able to afford it.
Well, I'm sick and this has been a rather serious, boring post at a time when I would much rather be sleeping! Wish me luck with my job hunting :)
