The cool thing about blogging for as long as I have, is that you can go back in time and read a post about your life then and examine what has, and what hasn’t changed.
I wrote this post in September of 2006 about my new found freedom from the pool service industry, because I was going to get my teaching credential and everything was going to change….
Fast forward a half a dozen years. I do have a teaching credential – two, in fact. Yet, what am I about to do as soon as I finish writing this screed???? I’m going to go service a bunch of pools of course!
Life is a bunch of plans interrupted by life, or something like that. I happened to get my teaching credential at the same time that the worlds finances imploded. California was especially hard hit. New teacher hiring ground nearly to a halt. I ended up keeping the pool and spa business, diminished as it was, and waiting the bad times out. Things seem to be heading in the right direction as of late. There is a lot more optimism in the air about hiring new teachers than there has been in the last four years.
My point of this post?
I have no idea. But I do promise not to declare freedom until I actually have it.
OK. I’m off to work.
