As I mentioned, I got to "closure" this week on the teacher licensing program I was considering. Next steps are to sign up for Old Lady classes for summer and hunt around for some scholarship/grant money. I plan to cut back on the tutoring and just do test prep tutoring once I finish up with the couple of non-test prepper students I currently have. On that note, I'd like to give a shout out to my crossing guard job, which does provide a steady trickle of cash flow and allows me to be picky on the tutoring jobs.
I'd been wavering between going down the teaching path or back to the engineering path for a couple of years now. Either way, I knew I'd need some supplemental schooling and wanted to make the "right" decision, hence the wavering. Earlier this year, I started doing some tutor related work in cahoots with a local high school assistant principal. She's probably the one to thank for "showing me the light". When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Literally!
In other somewhat related news, looks like Wolfgang is honing in on his post high school plans. The applications went out, acceptance letters returned, and he's opting to attend the local university where Chaco is. Can't say I'm disappointed in his choice.
But enough with higher learning! The week started out cold and snowy, then March came in like a sweet cuddly lamb. I'm able to get around quite gleefully on the bicycle without worrying too much about the embarrassment of a crash, because really, it's all about the embarrassment of being seen crashing and not the physical ramifications!
In movie news, Magnum and I watched Safety Not Guaranteed which we both liked. It's quirky, and the characters are fun. It's lighthearted but also makes you think. If you could go back in time, within this lifetime, where would you go? Why?

So another good week gone by. Spring will be here soon. Relax in a good place.
