I am going to rant and then move on

I just talked to a former student. I helped her get hired. She was very fortunate at the facility she was at for 15 months. She was trained and certified in multiple positions and allowed to develop new formats. She would visit from time to time oblivious to her fortune. She would dump on things, bringing down the class like an industrial drain. She never shared.

Eventually, my mentor put me in touch with that facility. Along with many other things, I would get my former student’s sub requests. I wasn’t on their main payroll, so when trainings would appear, I could not take them to fill their needs. My own facility, I have discovered, actively blocked my paperwork. Shitty, but I persevere.

I was recently hired for an alternative position at the better facility. I also took on my former student’s workload. I have repeated heard less than flattering comments about her performance. I know what she’s like as a student, so I just keep silent and work with what is cut out for me.

Meanwhile, there’s a well paying gym where I sub for my teacher. I approached them about teaching Saturdays in a new format. I was offered a spot to do a demo for marketing to see what they like. In the month between offering and subbing the last time, they hired my former student to be the program director. She has been offering the format in her own classes as an addendum.

She just called and claims she can’t remember me. She grilled me for details about my class. I had to find her on facebook to remind her of who I am which is why I am wondering why I have spent the past hour being annoyed? Is it because she’s had an easier road with steady skills and career development in light of her poor performance? Did they just keep giving her training hoping she would improve or were they do desperate, they didn’t care? Or is it she can’t remember the shoulders she stood on to get where she is that is chapping my ass?

Ok. I’m done. I have more work coming from other connections. Moving on.

Soo Sunny Park (b. Seoul, Korea) - Unwoven Light at Rice University’s Rice Gallery in Houston, Texas. Composed of 37 individual sculptural units, the installation uses iridescent plexi-glass embedded in pieces of a chain link fence to cast shimmering, colorful reflections across the spacious gallery. 

I want to do yoga in that installation.

I spent 4.25 hours teaching and did an hour long orientation

How do you guys with full time jobs have time for blogging? I’m still trying catch up.

While I hopped from class to class to new job orientation, Tres taught the kids, helped a friend with her heathens, bought me a present and got my favorite sandwich. He’s awesome (but not shown ‘cause he’s shy).

At least the caliber of my on- the- go meals is improving.

Blessed with work

Yep. I took three days off and the sub jobs poured in. I have my teacher, Carol, to thank. She helped me get the job I’m giving up on Wednesday. She lined me up as her sub at her better paying gym, which made the perfect reference for my new gig (the boss used to work there with her mom at the front desk).

A little bit of positivity was floating around that facility today; I had several calls for subbing. Carol, my new bosses and another teacher, who has been unconditionally kind, all reached out today. It feels so good to have my name spoken in an affirmative light.
