    so as most of you know I'm a substitute teacher and I only get paid when I'm called in. Well I wasn't called in yesterday (also I work at 5 different school districts, so I have work almost everyday) so I had the day off, which I thought was cool. :)
    Today on the other hand I did have a job, I got up early and was going to hop in the shower when I looked outside and darn it they towed my car! I forgot to put the darn parking permit on my car and the association has a strict policy of if you don't put your flimsy(sp?) hanging permit on your car then you will get towed.

    I had to go pick up my car which was only open at 8:30am and pay $160. To top that off I had to cancel my job that I had since the school wouldn't let me be late....so I canceled it....now I don't get paid today ...I called the other school districts but they haven't called me to come into work today.

          That really sucks! I hate when I have to spend my money towards unexpected things- especially unfun things like getting your car towed.

          Maybe spend the day doing your fav thing. It could cheer you up!

              Drea, maybe you should not sign up as a volunteer, maybe you could be something like a tech. This is what I did when i was going to school and not only did I get paid pretty well, i got benefits and learned so much! check it out. a lot of places will be flexible so you can go to school and work. some will even help you pay for school.

                  I would, or maybe call human resources. Did you decide that you wanted to be a nurse or something else? If you are going to be something like a CT scan tech, you might not want to do something like that but you will still learn a lot. Check their website too. They might have something on there. My hospital system loves students, they are usually so eager to please everyone because they know that they will be working there in the future. I loved being a tech. I did it in the ER and learned so much!
