Monday Thoughts or Whatever

Today was the first day for me to report for another school year, so blogging will be at different times of the day if I decide to do it that day. I almost didn't today because I went on a hiking trail after coming home from the inservice.

I am hoping this year is the year I get my Oregon K-8 teaching license. Almost in time for me to apply for Social Security benefits. It has taken me years and years to do this because of the lack of money.

Yesterday I was at the local REI sporting goods outfit, and they had a 48 cm carbon fiber Scott women's bicycle on sale for a little over 1k. I wish I could afford it because I would buy it. One of my goals this year is to get both carbon fiber and hybrid bicycles. I am due for a new bike after 28 years with the Pinarello. I am not able to get more than 18.75 hours on a regular district job because of benefits and PERS (though I am PERS eligible), so I may end up doing something else for pay. Of course the school will probably have me do a ton of substitute teaching this year.

I hope to get a regular teaching job next year, but I don't really see there being a true teaching shortage around here. I would actually prefer a part time teaching job, if any of those exist locally.

It appears people love narcissists, if the Trump phenomenon is any indication.
