I discussed a conflict over the future of my career in one of my recent posts. I had been making plans to move in one direction, while the universe was pushing me in another. Well, I’ve made a decision, one that will either see me through better and stronger on the other end or will utterly destroy me. I’ve decided to do it all.
By all, I mean I have already started my indexing online course so that I will have the potential to work from home and have a flexible schedule to be able to spend more time with my children. This is the short term plan. If it doesn’t work, my long-term plan will kick in. I will be taking advantage of my unemployed state to take courses at a university for free that will lead to a Supervisor’s Certificate for education. Meaning, that if I had to go back to work as a School Librarian if the indexing does not take off well enough, I would have acquired a means of advancing. I enrolled in two online courses today.
It might smell faintly of preparing for indexing failure, but that’s not the case. I just don’t want to miss out on anything that might be extremely useful in the future.
So, from now until the end of the fall semester, we have a total of 3 classes, 2 children, 2 dogs, 1 husband and 1 semi-stable brain. At the very least, it will be interesting.
P.S. Oh, and did I mention I was pregnant again?
