Happy New Year!

Although we have a little over half an hour to go in my time zone, I wanted to wish every one a happy 2008.

A nice end to 2007: my stepmom accepted a job offer today! Congratulations, Ms. Executive VP!!!

In the coming year, I plan to continue the ESL teaching, hope to find a stable job that doesn't suck, and check into the graduate program in adult basic education. I'm a chicken about applying, going to school, and going into debt, but if it's the right thing, I think it would be rewarding to eventually teach at a community college and help people get their GEDs. We'll see!

In the meantime, I could resolve to drink less coffee next year...but who am I kidding? :P

You have a lot on your plate! As far as the coffee, I don't see that happening for me either ;)
Hope you had a great New Years!

Happy New Year to you, too, and here is hoping the year brings you all you are looking for.

Riot Kitty-How is it I had no idea you were an ESL teacher??? Go for it girl! I do marketing for an adult basic education program--ESL/ELL and GED prep and testing. These adults amaze me every day!

Jessica: I'm actually an ESL teacher just as a volunteer. I'd love to do pr for a nonprofit but I can't seem to break in!

I was a literacy volunteer for several years-it's what got me this job.

It's so hard to break into PR, even more difficult to get a good position. But I think once you do, you're set. Good luck.

Hey thanks Jessica! I do have PR experience - it's just the nonprofit part that I'm having a hard time with. I'll let you know what happens :)
