Two strange things about my first teaching paycheck:
1. My students applauded the news as if I was a victor of the Hunger Games. It’s as if they knew how painful a month without pay really was.
2. First purchase? A set of black ink pens (G2’s) that I opened similar to a pack of aged Cuban’s. I pulled one out and proceeded to place the rest in my storage closet and lock the door.
I’m transitioning wonderfully.
