The restaurant where I work made $195 total for the day. $69 of that was in the morning, meaning total sales during my shift were just $135. I was barista, meaning I made 20% of the server's tips. Therefore, I made $8 tonight, working over the span of six hours. Yup, that sucks. It especially sucks because I have my project proposal due tomorrow, and that's going to be several hours of work, and I barely have a start to it. This means I will be pulling what could amount to an all-nighter, or nearly an all-nighter. And, really, I haven't been procrastinating; I'm putting several hours of work into the course each night. It still piles up, though. Luckily, I'm not teaching now. I wonder what it will be like when I am, and doing this at the same time. In the fall, I have a class on Monday nights until 10pm and a Saturday course from 9-4 every Saturday. I've heard the professors make the teacher courses easier during the school year.
Just repeat to myself: A MAT means a $3500 raise. A MAT means a $3500 raise. A MAT means a $3500 raise. And not worrying about certification for a few more years, which is another load off.
And, really, the course is pretty damn cool. The creative classroom juices are flowing and making me very excited about getting back in front of the kids. I can't believe I have a 25-30 page paper due next week, though.
