Thursday's Happenings and Other things...

Well, I woke up today with the sun shining in my face. Every time that happens I jump out of bed in a panic becuase it makes me feel like I slept in on accident. Usually when I wake up it's all foggy. I did not sleep in though so that was nice. It's so much nicer to ride to work when the sun is beaming!!!

Today's agenda holds a few things for me! I work at Job #1 until 2pm and then work at Job #2 until 6 or so. While working for Job #2 at home my friend Autumn is going to come over. She just got engaged and I want to see her and her lovely ring!!! She hasn't seen me since I got engaged either. She's moving down to SLO next week and will stay through to her wedding. I'm really exited to have a "planning buddy"!!! :-)

Jason's parents are having a little "birthday dinner" thing tonight. Jason's brother and sister-in-law are going to come over. That will be fun. Jason also teaches his first class at the Central Coast Language Academy today. He starts teaching at 4:30pm so if you think of it please be praying for him!!! His power plant job ends tomorrow and God was so faithful to provide something else...right when Jason needed it. He is TESOL certified and so he is technically able to teach English to speakers of other languages. He had contacted the lady who runs the language school about a month ago but she said there weren't any openings. Then she called him a couple of weeks back and told them that there was an opening starting on Mon. Sept. 1st! Perfect! Jason's job ends Fri. Aug. 29th. Is the Lord good or what!?! So, then they ended up calling him to teach a class this week too. He's going to be working a 10 1/2 hour day today (8 hours at the power plant and 2 1/2 hours at school). I'm really proud of him for going for this opportunity. It will be a huge challenge I'm sure but I think he will be great. He loves other people and their cultures. So, being around speakers of other languages and helping them gain a skill that will help to change their lives (knowing English in a foreign country opens HUGE doors) sounds like a great job for him!!! He also may be teaching some Italian classes too!!! :-)

Well, thanks for reading my ramblings and I hope everyone has a great day!!! Until we meet on the Internet again!!!

so i think i missed what this job #2 is. i know you mentioned it, but i don't know if picked up on what it is.

anyway, i used to "observe" at CCLA for my TESOL classes at Cal Poly. i loved it there. i taught once or twice as part of the training. i think teaching there would be so fun!
