For the last year or so, I’ve tried to post something here about 2-3 times per week. And now I’ve gone a week and a half with nothing. I feel I owe my loyal readers an explanation.
For the past year I taught school through a nonprofit that contracted into the local school district. While I technically have to work summers, I have a lot of leeway with how I spend my time. My plans for this summer included buying a fixer-upper house, and with that in mind, I put in notice that I wouldn’t be renewing my apartment lease.
And then the Powers That Be intervened. I was unexpectedly fired several days after the school year ended (for political BS reasons; several other people were also fired and others quit due to working conditions, leaving the organization with a 50% turnover rate). So, no house until I find a job.
And, as of the end of the month, no place to live.
For the past couple weeks I’ve been busy packing (and procrastinating about packing). My plan is to put most of my stuff in storage, then stay either at my dad’s or friends’ houses, with a good chunk of time writing and reading in libraries and places with free internet and unlimited refills.
I also think it would be fun to live in a tent for awhile, or out of my car, but my cat is vehemently against that.
So, until I get settled somewhere, or at least get all my stuff relocated, posts will be light.
Thanks for your understanding!
