Bitersweet..... but not really.

Though Friday was the last day of school, and subsequently my "last" day of work, going in today to finish up some grading was really just a matter of not doing it on Friday so I could get paid for one more day (hey, $100 is $100....). I'm sad now; not because I'm going to miss teaching there or because I've made so many friends and bonded with so many of the other teachers in the office, but because I will miss being able to buy shit. Like groceries. And rent.

I have one more paycheck coming my way. I have to wait two weeks before I get it because the district pays subs once a month. Part of me wants to take that money and blow it on a tattoo because that will make me feel better. Then I remember that I have an entire summer of NOTHING ahead of me and that money would be better put towards other things. Like groceries. Or rent...

Tomorrow I file for unemployment for the first time in my life. Wish me luck.
