Counting down the days

I feel like I'm back in school again. Well, technically I'm still in school, but I feel like I'm back in K-12 school again. I have exactly 5 days left in my position as a library media specialist. I work today, Wednesday, and Thursday and then I'm off for a week because on Friday I'm jetting off to Hawaii and then I work the Monday and Tuesday when I return and then I'M DONE!

I'm slightly excited by this because it means I don't have to get up at 4 in the morning to drive to work. I'm slightly sad by this because it means I don't have a second job (although working at school, the district allows me to take part of my paycheck each month and save it so I can get paid over the summer, SUPER SMART IDEA!!!).

Recently I've been applying for new jobs (in addition to my one as a library assistant at the public library), so far I haven't heard anything. I just turned in applications and I'm sure there are tons of people applying but this makes me nervous none-the-less. I would be very happy to know that when I come back from Hawaii or when the school year starts next year I'll have a second income. It would certainly take the stress off me a bit.

Speaking of stress, I'm a little stressed about the job situation BECAUSE I AM MOVING!!! I'm going to be moving to the town that my public library job is in. In fact, I'll be moving 1 block up and 2 blocks over from my job which means I can walk to work. I've never had a job where I could walk to work. In fact over the past 4 years all my jobs have been at least a 30mile/30 minute drive one way. That's right, AT LEAST 30 minutes away.

You can understand why I am so excited about this situation. Plus I'll be moving closer to my family and friends and since I only moved away to go to college (and honestly I live about 70 miles away from where I grew up) nobody wants to come visit me. So I'm really excited to be back closer to them. At least in the same county. WOOT!

So, in recap. I'm kind of sad, happy, and nervous all at the same time and I can't wait for summer vacation to begin. :)
