Arg... lost a post that I mostly wrote. Gave my first talk for NAMI. At a treatment program for men in a substance abuse treatment plan. Mostly it went well. I wasn't as prepared as I wanted to be mostly because I was so worried about the job stuff that being worried about the presentation wasn't really a thing.
So on Wednesday I had my last day of teaching at the college-- turned in my keys and everything. (Still need to tie up a few more loose ends with the other parts of the Adult Basic Ed job.
Then I had lunch with a friend -- who dropped me off to give the talk.
Then my phone died and I had to send text-messages from my google voice number using my computer to figure out how to get home. Somehow that part of the planning didn't really happen. But eventually I did arrive at home.
Went back to teaching k12 today after thirteen years away from it. Now I am floating on the end of a day-long hypomanic uptick. Hopefully I will be able to chill and get to sleep and all. I don't want to spend a lot of time writing.
I prepared by purchasing a working wardrobe (different to go from teaching twice a week to teaching five days a week). I bought a chromebook to do work stuff on from home-- partly because that's what my students may be moving to in the future, but mostly because my mac is super old and really slow and I'm afraid that it is going to die.
Now that I've caught you up on my consumer habits...
I still have some loose ends to tie up at my old job.
Now excuse me because I want to bead and not fix this post.
