I (was) sitting here waiting for my husband to pick me up to go out to dinner, and I figured I’d squeeze in one little post to sum up this week. Here goes, it was quite a week!
- Our school’s enrollment grew by 30% over the past two weeks. That is HUGE! And I was definitely feeling it in terms of my workload. A big part of the reason for the new-student bump is that, apparently, we are the last online school in the area that is still taking new enrollments. And all too often (although not always). these last-minute enrollments are students from families who are…shall we say…less-than-organized. So I spent a lot of time this week trying to get students up to speed who are already seriously behind academically. This made for a week that was at times frustrating, and at other times more rewarding as I got to feel like I was really “helping.” For what it’s worth, anyway…
- I started a new home decor project, this one a lot more manageable than my epic coffee table endeavor! This one is an adorable little tray to go on top of said coffee table based on this tutorial. I am painting it bright turquoise since I am obsessed with this color right now but don’t have the room (or money!) for another big project right now. I will (hopefully) post the finished project on Monday! Here is a preview of the color:
- And finally, probably the biggest news in my life right now is that I am applying for adjunct faculty positions at a local community college, The application process is a lot of work for something that’s probably a long shot (I will probably be up against people with PhD’s) and I am super scared about the idea of making such a big change. But it is also really exciting! So that is what I am planning on doing tomorrow (before I let myself out to go buy more stuff for my next project [see above]). Enjoy your weekend — I plan to be busy!!
