I work as a ten month employee at a University. Every year my supervisor has given me the opportunity to teach a summer class so I could make ends meet. This year, only a few weeks prior to the class starting, she informs me I will no longer be teaching. I was devastated. Thankfully I have some of my tax return money that I can use to pay the bills come summer break (June 16-August 15)
Then today I got some news. I was asked to interview for a PT position on campus. It won’t make nearly the same amount of money I would teaching, but it is in the library! (Did I mention I am getting my second Masters in Library Science!) And this would give me some hands on experience I would need once I start looking for jobs after I graduate. I haven’t gotten the job yet, but it has made me start thinking about planning and opportunities, fate and luck. I firmly believe we make our own luck. But we need to always be on the lookout for opportunity and be prepared for it.
This summer I am also preparing for my surgery on August 22. I am excited and scared, but I have made sure to do my due diligence and plan as much as I can. So much change going on in my life this summer. I can’t hardly wait!
