Making sense

Anne Lamott, on writing ...

"We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little. But we do. We have so much we want to say and figure out.”

I hope I get it ... I really want this job ...

Like the dancer desperate for a role in a chorus line ~ A Chorus Line! ~ I am sooooo needing a career change. I am desperate to leave teaching. It has worn me down. Again.

As my husband has always said, I am the abused wife of education. Romantic, this Mr. Education is. The job entices me but then it beats me up. I leave but miss the classroom. Miss the students. I go back. More abuse ensues.

The story of my (professional) life.
This book needs to end.

Good Morning America has launched a nationwide search for an advice guru.
I want to be that person.

I can do that.
That I can do!Italic

"Kathleen Stander, middle school communication arts teacher, has been rescued from her public school classroom to become GMA's advice guru."

My, what a community newspaper story that would be.

Look at all the people.
I really need this job, please God I need this job; I've got to get this job
A 5, 6, 7, 8 ... (queue the funky dance music)

I hope I get it
How many people does he ...
I really need this job; please God I need this job; I've got to get this job.
Strike ... strike .... strike ( Marvin Hamlisch is a genius.)

OK, girls, a 5, 6, 7, 8 (more dance music).

I'll come to New York. I really will. My children are raised. My marriage is strong.

I can do this job. I know I can.
