Pros, Cons, Giveaway & a Blog Hop

Guess what?!??!

There are only 4 1/2 days of school left!!!
The only thing is, now that the end is in sight, I've got some major mixed feelings.

I'm happy that it's SUMMER and that means pretty decent weather, camping trips, boating on the lake, and spending time with family and friends.

I'm happy that I'll be done planning lessons and stressing out about all the stuff I have to do.

And I'm happy that I'll have more time to read and relax.
But, I will miss the kids... at least until summer school starts! ;)

Here are the pros & cons of my summer vacation...

Pro: More time to look and apply for full-time teaching jobs!
Con: Having to apply for jobs... It's just not fun. It's stressful and overwhelming, and I pray that this is the last summer I have to spend stewing over whether or not my name is randomly selected out of thousands of applicants for one position.Ugh.

Pro: Working 40 hours a week at my office job!
Con: Sitting at a desk for 40 hours a week at a boring office job. Don't get me wrong, I'm really thankful I have it, but sitting at a desk, not talking, not teaching, makes for a very. slow. day.

Pro: Beautiful, warm weather [for the most part]!
Con: No air conditioning + heat + humidity = bad hair & sweaty sticky skin [gross, but you can't say it's not true!!]

Pro: No more lesson planning!
Con: Feeling like I need to reorganize and go through my teacher things at home and not being able to justify leaving it be by saying, "I have too much school work and lesson plans to work on today..."

Pro: Camping, bonfires and boating!!!
Con: Bug bites, poison ivy and sunburns

Pro: More time to relax, read and veg out!!!
Con: Bad tv shows

Overall, I think the pros outweigh the cons, but I'm still feeling like a Debbie-Downer today.

Sorry! But, I guess you'll just have to deal with it... ;)

  1. Good luck with the job search. I've been there and know how frustrating it can be-but it will all be worth it when you find that perfect position!



Comment love makes me smile. :)
