Well I got a call from a local high school here, and they said that they have an opening for a social studies class and were wondering if I was available for an interview tomorrow!

So, damn, excited right now. I just got my certification a week ago and now I might actually have a job, even though the market is bad and I have been looking for one (illegally) for the past four months, sending resumes and discussing positions with people all over New York.

Let's hope it goes well...I really hope it goes well. Getting this job would justify the hard work of not only graduating college, but also from my own front of looking for one and dealing with the bullcrap that goes with it, plus the unseen circumstances of the witholding of my degree and my certificate.

So I hope I get the job. For now it's a longshot, but it's better than no shot.

Finally
Posted on Sunday, August 31 2008 @ 12:50:07 Eastern

I got my degree, and my teaching certificate!

It's about damn time too, because I have been waiting for it since JUNE. Now it's late, meaning I can't get a job anywhere unless I get called in by a principal, so all my initial shopping for a teaching job has been for naught so far. Then again, New York has no real openings, because of cutbacks due to No Child Left Behind and shortening budgets that the state has created for itself to better govern numerous overcrowded schools with inadequate conditions, supplies, and sometimes teachers who don't give a damn because they lost their spark to do anything.

Yeah i'm cynical, but it's also true. I find it somewhat ironic, actually, that they have willing graduates who want to help in any way they can, but will not hire anyone because of cutbacks, all induced through the policies of both state and government decree.

But, at least I finally got my certificate, so now I can teach legally, so soon, your children will be in my classroom, learning about history and objectivism.

Lost my Touch
Posted on Tuesday, August 12 2008 @ 09:59:16 Eastern

After three weeks of barely playing Rock Band, I finally got back on it. Mainly because my guitar is finally in working order again, a month ago the fret button wouldn't work at all, making me fail some easy songs both off and online (so to everyone I have played with where I failed, sorry.)

So after learning that no matter how coordinated I can become I will always suck at the drums (although I am now on medium difficulty, which is good.) I put the game away for a bit until I had time to fix it.

After operating on the guitar and fixing it finally, I downloaded todays pack and began playing, and failed all six songs downloadable today. ALL SIX. Granted, thee of them were level 9 I believe, but still, this is unprecedented because I have been an expert guitarist for a while now, and until today there were only a few songs I couldn't beat on expert, and now there are six more.

So I went down to simpler songs, and I began floundering there as well. I beat them, but none of them had five stars, let alone gold stars. To test myself, I played Enter Sandman, and even four starred that! Now there is something REALLY wrong.

I guess I am out of practice, so it's time to play like a madman for a few days until my vacation with the family next week.

Well, like a lot of the fretwork freaks out there (Nick), I think I nearly orgasmed when I saw the new setlist for Rock Band 2 today, over 80 songs strong, and almost every single song alone can be a make or break deal for a game like Guitar Hero in ...   read more...

Until the forums come back, I am not going to be doing much here. I planned on writing two member reviews today, actually. One for GTA IV, and one for Viking, the game that I picked up on Monday and gave up on Wednesday. Good thing it was a rental.read more...
