Squished Again

So like Whiskeymarie, last year I had to interview for my own job.  And like her, I got it back and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I mean I really REALLY like this job.  However today I've been told it's being hacked into several pieces none of which is benefits eligible.

So it's back to job searching.  Perhaps I can find something part-time and mix it with the jumble of shattered pieces that used to be my job.  I would really like to be reasonably well-employed, and not have to hold my breath all year long while budgets and decision are hammered out.  Too much to ask I guess.

SUCK ASS!! That is my immediate reaction. I am hoping for an interview next week from my own district for a full time position but in talking to the principal I am thinking he's hoping for a licensed teacher to take this job for para pay. I hate this economy and I hate the unfairness of it all.

Since I am filing divorce papers in the next couple months I will be without health insurance and I am trying to avoid the negative feelings that come from thinking about it. Stress causes illness and I just can't get ill!!

good thoughts your way- we can get together for hot water as coffee will probably be out of both our reach soon. =)

It has got to be tough living under that constant job stress. I'm sending good vibes your way.

It gets damn old...scraping by, feeling a bit bruised and battered by the system.

This just blows. I mean really. When good honest hard working people can't find work it just don't make no sense.
When someone like you, who is making a difference in the lives of others, can't work and folks like John Boehner has a job... you realize THAT LIFE AIN'T FAIR.
We gone all have to pray.
That's why I clock in at this job every day and smile until ti's time to go home. Whether I like it here or not, I've gotta deal with it... cause the pickings out there are slim to none.
I don't know what our kids are going to do.

I don't understand why you would have to interview for your own job. Are your employers too stupid to remember your performance?

I totally understand. Though I retained my OWN job (and had to answer questions like, "how do you think you would do teaching at an inner-city community college?" when I have already been doing that for SIX AND A HALF YEARS, DUMMIES!), I will be losing my "overload" credits by spring, therefore taking a sizable pay cut. Yay, me.

I totally understand the stress. I feel for you, my dear.

How are your cooking skillz? We need a part-time instructor come January. ;)
