News for Nearly Everyone Else

I have to stop getting on Facebook. Every time I look through my newsfeed, two more people I graduated with have jobs, one more is engaged, at least three have weddings a month away, and another person announces they are having a baby. Meanwhile, I can barely make it through the day without finding something to cry over (lack of a teaching job, no life plans, missing my student teaching class). The positive is that it has been over a week since anyone asked me if I have a job yet or what my plans are. I haven’t had anyone give me the “I’m worried about you” look and carefully explain that a lot of teachers do not get jobs until after school starts. That only makes me more worried! I hold on to the hope that if I happen to find myself in that situation, it would turn out like my mentor teacher who started subbing and was lucky enough to get a full time position from there. We will see! I guess I have just have to keep looking and praying and trying not to stress about it too much!
