1:19pm Tuesday/August/2005
  Today has been so much better than yesterday. I don't know exactly why, either.

I get paid on Friday! My contract started on Aug. 1st, so I get paid this Friday. That is so exciting. It might mean that I can put a larger downpayment on my car, too. Which, by the way, is going to be a 2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SE in Sonic Blue, which is kind of a purply-blue. Hopefully I'll get it on Friday. I also got a college grad rebate, so that's more money saved.

Everyone here is so nice. I probably sounded like they were all terrifying or something before but they have all been just great and friendly and helpful.

I found out that I get to choose what math books I want to use and what science books, too. All my classes have two textbooks that I can go through and I can choose whichever I want to use for my curriculum. The downside is that I'm not "inheriting" a set way to do things that I can fall back on, which can mean more work, but it also means I can teach what I want how I want to. So, anyway, I should get some work done, but I'm just having such a better day and I'm so excited about everything.
