Some random thoughts:
1. I am currently hiring for a 6 month position, no benefits, no promise of any continued employment.
We got >45 applications, and about half are from laid-off teachers in Michigan.
2. I’m still working >60hrs/week with no end in sight. I love this job, but it’s killing me. Looking at a Federal Job in Maryland with APHIS. I think I’m probably crazy, but the prospect of a 40 hour week sounds pretty golden right now, even if I have to live in the city.
3. The apartment I’m living in right now actually has enough spiders to almost, kinda, sorta, creep me out. That should tell you something.
But…it could be worse. At least there are no wasps!
Hopefully things will slow down in September, and I can return then.
