Whatís your internship?

Awww yeah, I can imagine that. Itís different, eh.

The internship is just working with a policy team organising a bit of data entry and other general dogsbody work. I havenít worked in a full on office environment since 2005 (when I became a Mum), so itís helpful just to have the experience of what itís like now...

Do you like working outside the home? I havenít had a job outside the home since 2013 when I had my oldest. I started working online in 14 so at least I wonít have a big hiatus on my resume whenever I do decide to start back to work. Just thinking about getting a job again gives me anxiety though, after being out of the workforce so long you feel like everything has changed.

ilikeplanets 09-04-2019 07:59 PM

That's how I feel looking at graduate programs. College has changed a lot in 8 years. And I'm sure I'll have no idea where to start job hunting after completing that in several more years. -_- Bold move, Em.

vixnix 09-05-2019 04:07 AM

Thanks...itís hard.

Working outside the home leaves me way less time to fret over my kidsí futures, so in a selfish sort of way, itís good. We need the money, to save for retirement, so we wonít be a burden on our kids, and to put them through school, so Iíll appreciate having a job if I get one, just for that reason.

Work seems surprisingly similar...it has taken me a couple of weeks to get used to the particular ins and outs of this workplace but mostly it feels very familiar. Hopefully I can slot in somewhere, next year. If not at this place, hopefully somewhere similar, where they can see that Iíve completed an internship and Iím a good normal person who turns up and does all the expected things.

The hard part is trying to do it while studying full time. I had a test on Tuesday and an essay due on Monday. Thereís no down time. But the internship is only for another five weeks. I keep telling myself it wonít be forever. Because right now it actually feels very hard. And my kids have projects they need help with...and I donít have time to help them. My husband does all the laundry and loads the dishwasher every night. I feel like a real loser in many ways :(

ilikeplanets 09-05-2019 03:14 PM

i think it's a great step! new routines take time to get used to, and sometimes you gotta shift responsibilities around to figure out what will be sustainable.

Disco King 09-06-2019 12:05 PM

Why do some students feel the need to whisper little asides and provide a director's commentary for lectures? Shut the fuck up, I didn't come here to listen to you.

Disco King 09-06-2019 12:09 PM

Like, once or twice in a lecture, that's fine. But responding to every single thing the instructor says throughout the damn class, just why are you doing this?

topleybird 09-06-2019 12:51 PM

That's when you must gather up yo soy's warrior spirit and hiss some invectives at them to make them respect their surroundings and community

Alternatively, start carrying an air horn or mace to class

FoolofaTook 09-06-2019 01:05 PM

nah you don't want to lose the element of surprise.

first: man-up.

then: arise, lift your desk on high, and smite those gibbering swine!

Mals Marola 09-06-2019 02:12 PM

you don't need a hyphen for man up

f o o l

FoolofaTook 09-06-2019 03:01 PM

that was a test. i did that on purpose, i swear.

Mals Marola 09-06-2019 03:07 PM

you've been spending too much time around the Mikey Campbells of this world... getting SOFT where it matters: your grammar usage on the internet

FoolofaTook 09-06-2019 04:01 PM

thought I bombed my first math test but I actually got a 90%

that's cutting it too close and I'll need to put in more work, but I can do this

math is the one subject I'm worried about as far as community college, get an A in this class and I think I can go on to make the Dean's List

and if that don't work i email the professor a nice little note lettin' her know about the distracting student and usually they've been privy to it for a while and i give them reason to call it out in class and out loud. there's an upshot to being a thirty something in college. idgaf. and teachers always like me.

Anyway, I'm even better at demonstrating my moral purity by throwing my vote away. I always vote for the Buddha.

I had no idea you were from Germany

ella 09-07-2019 08:05 PM

Nope And I’ve never tried coke with Fanta and no I won’t try it ever.

yo soy el mejor 09-08-2019 08:33 AM

last week i was offered a teaching assistant job at the university of chicago for an extended day program. i would have made it work, but it's 45 minutes to an hour from my house on public transportation so that would have been close to 8 hours of commuting a week. that's precious time, baby.

anyway. on friday i got offered another job as an ESL instructor i had applied and interviewed for but didn't get. someone left and they changed their minds. it's 6 - 9pm, M-Th, plus 5 hours of a curriculum building every week. that's means i will have most of the day time hours to tend to class and personal matters. And it's only 15 minutes away and i will be teaching class alone instead of assisting in someone else's room.

v glad to have this figured out right before school starts (tomorrow).

Ram27 09-08-2019 03:37 PM

45 mins is way too long a commute for my blood

Ram27 09-08-2019 03:39 PM

I bought a Tesla recently and one of the things you can do is name the car

I was gonna call it a Flyer because of some other nerd shit I like, but guess what the original owners called it.....it's a red car, btw

Ruby. Which fucking blows my idea out of the water. And since it has so many cameras and sensors, you could almost say I'd be looking.....

yo soy el mejor 09-08-2019 03:45 PM

ilikeplanets 09-08-2019 04:01 PM

I decorated for Halloween today. In early September. I don't even like fall. It looks good though.
