Hoping to get a job in the next week. I'm one of two people left in my class to have not landed myself a permanent teaching job. But I've got high hopes and two teaching demonstrations this week for jobs. Wednesday and Thursday. Think of me if you get the chance.

The two schools I'm going to this week seem like my best prospects to date. So there's that.

Granted, it's Billy Collins, and I don't particularly care for his mainstream platitudes, but I was happy to see a poem on TV nonetheless. A Youtube search turned up a few others, so I've posted them here:
