Well, I didn’t get the Youth Instructor position. I’m not surprised, but I am a little sad. I was hoping to get that position in order to have a plan for where I’ll be going and what I’ll be doing at the end of the summer. So this leaves me feeling a little bit adrift. Do I want to figure out how to come up with the money for the Residential Program? I would really love to take the Residential Program, but would I like to do it more than I would like to buy a piece of property? The Res program will run me almost 10,000 buckaroos. That’s more than a quarter of the money that this house would cost us. Like, total.
So, ya. When I put it like that. I’d really like to own a house. And besides all that, there’s just no way that I can come up with $10,000 for school OR a house this year.
And I’m still torn, because owning a house would be totally kick-ass, but doesn’t really get me any closer to satisfying work. The Res program would give me the connections and experience to do what I want to do for the next long while.
I don’t need to decide anything for a couple months. The deadline for the Res program is the beginning of August, so I can see how the summer camps are going by then. It’s possible that I won’t even want to work with kids by then. But THEN what the hell would I do? Too bad it’s not easier to get blogs to pay…
