Update on My Life

So, I haven't really updated most people on what's going on in my life, so I figured I'd take the time to do so (while I'm waiting for stuff to finish printing).

Work is going well. I am now teaching GMAT almost exclusively, though that is probably more due to scheduling than anything else. GRE students and GMAT students are different types, but they all manage to keep me from becoming bored with my job. I am planning to (re)take the LSAT sometime within the next couple of weeks so that I can teach that as well. Yeah, I took it a week ago. I needed a 164; I got a 161. Now, if I were planning to apply to law school, that would have been an awesome score. Unfortunately, I need to score exceptional to teach the class. So I'll study for it this time, and I suppose I'll do better. :p

I was working for a VERY short while at a vocational school. I was supposed to teach algebra once a week. The job turned into a complete nightmare that never seemed to end. They monopolized my time, required more and more work by the day but limited my hours, and seemed to think that I had nothing better to do than cater to their every whim. There wasn't enough parking for all of the faculty. Whoever heard of a school that has stacked parking for its faculty, including the part-time ones who come in at odd hours? I will refrain from mentioning the school's name, but I will try to fill you in on all of the gory details someday.

Milo is doing well. He is silly and goofy and cute. He has also gained more weight than he was supposed to, and he is starting to get fat. He sleeps way too much, and really seems to enjoy napping under the kitchen table. I suppose I should find him some training classes, but I'm just too lazy myself.

I started volunteering at the Downtown Women's Center over a year ago, and I am so blessed to have found them. I am now a core member of the birthday guild, which plans and puts on birthday parties once a month for the residents. I just love it. Unfortunately, work is interfering with it these days. I'm not complaining about the income; I just wish the two things didn't conflict so often. :p I hope that some of you will get to visit DWC with me and will see why I love it so much. I have pictures on Facebook, so those of you who read this there can go into my photos and look at the pictures.

I have been attending church on Friday nights at Renovatus at the Eagle Rock SDA Church. It is a post modern, intimate service with a great band and a welcoming message. Virna's husband Danny is in charge, and I also have made some other friends there. It's nice having friends again; I don't have very many.

My family is doing OK. In fact, we are getting a visit from the East Coast gang in a couple of days. Annie is now 5, and she knows everything--at least that's what she would believe. She's also quite gorgeous, which makes her a double threat. It will be a fun visit, but I'm sure it will tire me out.

My love life is still nonexistent, but not for lack of want. I tell people that I really don't mind being introduced to their friends, but no one ever does. Most of the time I can't help but think that most of my friends think I'm too much of a loser to meet THEIR friends, but, well, you know.

OK, well, I do need to get to work, but that's the LONG version of my life, in case you were wondering. Also, I managed to update my profile (on here, and on Facebook), so check it out at your leisure.

I'm glad you updated!!! Maybe sometime I'll be in CA and you can show me the Women's Center. :)

PMKat said...

Yay! I hope you come visit soon! :)

Will K. said...

Thanks for the update! We will have to get lunch soon. Every time I come to LA the time never seems to be enough. :(

I like how you're focusing on yourself. I think the love life thing will come naturally. I try too much on the love life and end up empty handed. On top of that I'm not really developing as an individual. So you're on the right track!


PMKat said...

Thanks, Will! :)

I HOPE I'm developing . . .

And you should DEFINITELY call me next time you're in town.

I read your profile... don't sell yourself short on the relationship thing.
Glad you are finding fellowship and MANY outlets for your gifts. Never know who you might meet while using what God gave you...

PMKat said...

Thanks, Matt. I'm pretty discouraged these days . . .
