Hola, tout le monde! Does it ever feel like a Monday! I've been subbing school a lot lately, which means that I've had ample opportunity to not dress like a hippie, but to suit up in a combination of my favourite vintage clothes, mixed with my mum's cast offs to create relatively fun teacher outfits. The glasses are pretty fun, too, right? Small world… the company that sent them over to me has a warehouse in my home town!
Anyway, it's all this school stuff that's really making me frustrated. That and a bit of a drunken breakdown on Thanksgiving that's really got me re-evaluating things. Here's the deal:
~ I went to college. I had to put myself through undergrad after freshman year and even though I moved to the state where I attended college before being accepted (during a crazy mixed up transfer), and worked and paid taxes in said state and was technically an in-state resident, I ended up paying out-of-state tuition (to the tune of about $16,000 a semester!).
~ After undergrad, there were no jobs, so I went back to school and got a master's, largely to please someone else and to fit into someone else's life plan. That plan never happened.
~ Then I moved to Germany where I am basically un-hireable for anything career-related, so I'm stuck subbing at school and teaching dance/gymnastics and tutoring on the side.
… now I don't know what to do when I get back to the states and am still staring down a rather unsightly student loan that because my degrees are in crazy fields and because I live where I do right now and work where I work right now, I will likely not be able to get them forgiven (as I had planned).
… oooooooh…. drifting through life…
