At the moment, I’m surprisingly content with being unemployed. Sure, it would’ve been nice to have had the job and I was really looking forward to it. It probably helps that this is my 4th September since graduating college and not one of them has included a teaching position; you get used to it after a while, I think. There are some parts of not getting it that are actually a relief. Although I’m not working, I’m definitely not bored. It’s been nice to get some of my “summer” projects worked on.
Nevertheless, it’s not a bad idea to remind myself of some ways to save money, especially since my income will be unpredictable for the foreseeable future, even if I start subbing again (which I probably will soon).
