A Quick Autumn Update.
I can’t believe November is already almost halfway over! School and work are definitely keeping me busy. The family is still searching for a new nanny, so I’m still here, but things are going well in the house and job search. I haven’t found an apartment yet, but I have found roommates. Two girls I go to church with have also been looking for roommates/new apartments, so now the three of us are looking for a place together. I’m definitely glad to be looking for an apartment with people I know!
Although the apartment search continues, I have found a new job. I’ll be working for a company that provides English tutors to Microsoft employees and their families who have just moved to Seattle from a country where English is not the primary language. I’ll be working one-on-one to develop an appropriate, unique curriculum for each student I have. Because developing a separate curriculum for each student can be time-intensive, I’m going to try to have just two to three students, and then maybe get a job at a cafe to have a job with coworkers again. (I never realized how much I enjoyed having coworkers until I had a job without them)!
Wish me luck in the house search; although I’m going to miss the kids when I’m done being a nanny, I’m definitely looking forward to living closer to school and having roommates again!
