Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

After two years, I'm kinda back working again.

Substitute teacher.

How much did I want this gig? I accepted an assignment for 5th and 6th grade gym teacher. Ordinarily, I'd beg off, asking for anything but gym.

But y'know something? 1) It wasn't that bad. 2) The kids were cool. 3) I'm getting wages.

And if memory serves, teachers take off more as the holidays approach.

It's not perfect but it's better than living off my dwindling savings.
