Life is good. I’m still working on a bunch of projects, a lot of PS (upgrade to CS6 is coming right up in a few days–wahoo!) and some HTML. I’m looking into paths I could choose for a career change, since my teaching career is pretty much kaput until I make up a whoooooole lotta Act 48 credits. Mine from NJ didn’t count for anything toward my PA certificate, even though I was teaching in NJ the whole time and NOT in PA. It’s ok because it’s time for a change anyway. I loved teaching and some day when I have a bigger/more suitable place, I’ll teach instrument lessons, but I’m not even in any hurry for that.

I am pretty sure I want to stay involved in computers and design. I have been researching a media design program from an online university that looks pretty interesting. It’s a Master of Fine Arts in Media Design from Full Sail University, if anyone is interested. I’m still not sure I’m going to do it, but it’s something I’m toying around with. Coupled with the html 5 video class I’ve been taking, and my work in PhotoShop, I might be leaning toward web design. At any rate, the information in that program at the very least would benefit job-hunting in the field. I will figure it all out in time. For now, I’ve got one more month of school for the boys before my annual trek up to my hometown to work construction/remodeling with my dad and brother. After that I will be going back to work, whether that is in a new career, or a filler position until which time I have my path in order. It is bittersweet for me. This year has been so wonderful. I’ve been able to be home when my boys are sick, without being made to feel like I’ve let everybody at school down. I’ve been able to establish a routine at home and sit down to eat real meals with the family every night, instead of always being on the fly. I’m not driving hundreds of miles every week, which is wonderful. It only took me 9 of 10 school months to feel like a stay-at-home-mom and now it’s over. Ahh, well. Such is life, right? 🙂

Anyhooo, I just wanted to post a general synopsis of what’s up, since I’ve been MIA for a few weeks. Hope everybody’s having a great May!
