The blog has been a little quiet over the past few months. This semester I am working between two different colleges. I am teaching multiple classes to a diverse range of students.
One of the colleges that I work at has finals next week. In two weeks my course load will be much lighter than before. That will be good because the stress is getting a little high and I feel exhausted. Some days I come home and go to sleep right away.
I already have some classes reserved for me for Fall 2015. That has relieved some of the stress. However, I would have the same problem of working multiple part-time jobs with no benefits and no personal life.
Unfortunately, I don’t know if I’m going to get a summer class yet. This was an issue last year (see summer employment), and I hope it doesn’t become an issue again. I am already talking to people to see if they need a math professor over the summer. I’m hoping because I’m being more proactive this year will lead to better results.
In the little free time that I do have, I have been job searching and making more attempts to network. I will update you on my progress in another blog post.
