Good ol' status update comin' at ya...

So I finally got a new job at a school in Lewisville. I left a great opportunity for a little bit more money (didn't know it was going to only be a little bit more but more on that in a bit) and work in Special Education as a classroom aide. (barfing my guts up today so not goin' nowhere) It's a large school district and will serve to be extremely helpful when I get my teaching certification. The poop of it is, I'm going from two paychecks a month down to one and am having a hard time keeping up. Especially since I had to put a new water pump in my truck in a gas station parking lot thus spending more money than I wanted to.

The side note to the "little bit more" comment was, that the other reason I accepted this job was because it was STARTING at $2 more an hour than I was getting at my previous one AND I got a small "starting raise" because of my work history in Special Education in another district. The odd/frustrating part is, I'm only making $100 more a month and that's before I've even selected my benefits package. I came from a charter school and the only thing I can think is that I'm having to pay TRS again. Honestly it sort of pisses me off. It's whatever though.

The third and final reason is so I can move up to the McKinney area at the end of the summer but honestly, I need more income...period. As in steady income. So I'm probably looking for another job this summer or at the very least, another part time job that's more consistent than the ballpark when the Rangers are in town.

I still don't own a gun. What can ya do?


I don't own any guns anymore
