        Went to botanical garden today w a friend, got 10k steps in.

        Did not tidy >.>

        Got an email back from nyc teaching fellows that I can attend step 2, selection night interview! I seem to have gotten it late in the process so I guess that they didn't get enough ppl through in tier 1? LOL. Now I have to think about what I'd actually like to do for a living, in case both things come through >.>

        I know it's strange, bc I'm in my fucking 40s, but I've never actually thought about what I want to actually do, career wise. I have just sort of always worked a job I didn't hate which allowed me to pay the bills, without putting much thought into what other sorts of jobs I might actually enjoy instead of just not hating, etc. Maybe only one of these things (both of which I can see myself liking, for different reasons) will actually come through with an offer and I can continue to just do whatever happens to be in front of me. Either would be a more than acceptable salary (teaching less so for 1st few years while getting degree, but better later + pension possibilities, vs tech which would be better out of the box but lack the long term benefits etc). Either would scratch my helpfulness itch. Teaching would be better on the helpfulness front, but that would allow for less time to myself bc lesson plans etc (and getting masters along side work 1st few years). The customer support job would have me still at home, which would mean no commute so more time to myself, and give me more flexibility on when to take vacations. Oh well, I'm not going to try to talk myself one way or the other bc w my luck the one I talk myself out of will be the only offer I get LOL.

        Either way, it's a past bare subsistence level living wage, at an actual career sort of job, so ya. Idk which to hope more for, but I hope.

          Nice going on getting through to the next stage. I knew what I wanted to do and I got so stressed out about it that I blew it. You're doing great, not giving up on the one hand and doing what you have on the other. Keep it up, you'll do fine

            I have never had the opportunity to actually consider what I want to do with a career, because every time I have, I had been forced to take a position outside of the fields for which I have studied just to continue surviving. In doing so, I've always gone in with the hopes that this will be the one, but it has yet to come through. I sincerely hope one, or both*, of these positions is offered, because I can say with authority continuing in situations that you don't hate will eventually become hate for the position you're in.










            *Having to choose between two things you're at least fairly sure you'll like is way better than most, if not all, alternatives.

              I just kind of fell into my job (not what I went to school for) and have been been doing it for 22 years. I guess it's a career now, lol.

                Today I met gym friends, and hey, taking out the garbage counts as tidying right?

                I'm trying not to borrow trouble, but I am a ball of anxiety.

                  Considering the smells that appear if you don't take out the garbage, I'd say yes, it definitely counts as tidying.

                          Btw, for DorothyMH and anyone else curious - end result of foot peel is mostly that feet felt weird for abt a week, and looked like they were sunburnt/peeling a few days. The edges of my callouses got a bit smaller, maybe? This is a product for ppl who regularly get pedicures, not for people who have years of callous built up and impulsively decide to "deal" with it.

                            Every other week, I put my feet in warm water, mixed with a good amount of apple cider vinegar, for 10 min, and then use a pumice stone. It works quite well, but I really have to do it regularly. When the skin is not so bad, I skip the pumice stone and use an olive oil and sugar peeling instead.
