All right, I seem to have come down slightly from my anxiety the other day.

I think I'm pretty resigned to staying in my parents house until roughly halfway through 2012. But I think I've worked out a budget that will allow me to not only pay off my car in two more payments, but to be out of credit card debt by June at the latest. And this is with low-balling most of the paychecks for the next two months.

So there's that.

Also, NaNo is ending, which is always a let-down and a relief at once. Let down because I know there's lots of people that I love hanging out with that I will maybe see in April with Script Frenzy, but more likely won't see until next November. Or checking in vaguely on Facebook and the like. (And on here! Hi new LJ/NaNo friends!)

Anyhoo, I think I've got a plan.

Watch that plan go up in smoke, since when we make plans the gods laugh.

I am ... in a rut. Of course, when am I not?

No signs of anyone hiring until the holiday season, so, fine, I'll bide my time and apply again at the end of October. I even asked at Wal-Mart and found they were in a hiring freeze. Sign of the times...

Anyway, my luck I'll get a second job just as NaNo starts. Except maybe not because my friend at the library is organizing a whole bunch of NaNo stuff, because she's the regional liaison-person, and I might be getting some extra hours from helping her out. I'm only a little nervous because she seems to want to stick me with the middle-school aged kids. So we'll see how that goes...

I'm reminded of this because I just signed on as an educator in the young writer's program, so we can get an additional kit.

My friend is very...engaged. She used to be a teacher, so she's much better with kids. She's got all kinds of ideas for making notebooks and handing out prizes/toys/motivational stuff. I listen to her and think, "Why can't I come up with stuff like that?"

I also got the latest GRE prep-book from the library. I just want to look at it, see what I'm in for if and when I decide to take the GRE. I test really well, especially standardized tests, so I'm not actively worried, but forewarned is forearmed and all that...
