Rejecting Wonderland.

I turned down the job offer.

I feel bad about it, because I think the city sounds fantastic and it's the first real job offer I've received. But... that's really all the good points. The contract is atrocious, the hours are shit, and something the current foreign teacher said really bugged: the school doesn't pay on time. Ever. In my mind, not paying on time is one step away from not paying at all. I simply don't feel comfortable signing with this school.

I've been told that the job market will pick up again in September/October/November, as people who got teaching jobs either don't show up or leave early. I can wait. It's a horrible position to be in--this state of uncertainty--but I can deal with it for a little while longer.

In other news, a couple days ago I ran an 8:40 mile. In high school I never did better than a 15:30 mile. How awesome is that?
