It actually feels like FALL today. I am happy about that!

Of course, I am still doing the job-hunt thing, which is frustrating — but I have a few possible leads. Maybe. The place Fella works is hiring either a distance-ed proctor or distance-ed-technology faculty liaison (I’d either oversee tests or help faculty with the software for their distance-ed classes), which has potential since I’ve met and am on friendly terms with most of Fella’s coworkers — including bosses. I might actually have a shot at that one.

And it’s gloomy and rainy and chilly and thus perfect weather for lots of hot tea and a netflix-watching, yarn-winding bed party. I’ll be back!

You do distance ed stuff? That’s essentially what my hubby does at the state college, and what I do to a lesser extent (more on the elearning/instructional ‘devsign’ side myself). There are lots of jobs here! If you want to give me any ideas of what kind of skills you have, I can keep my eyes open for you.

Fella works there; he does things like designing games and virtual microscopes and things (and if we’re talking about the state college with the wolfies, they probably work together). He has the connections and things, and the coworkers who mostly seem to like me.

And me…I have an English degree. I can do admin type stuff and customer service things (it sounds like the writing jobs tend to go to those with masters’ degrees first). Other than that, I can pretend that I’ll go to grad school one day.
