there's a possibility that i might be able to go to sunnyvale for about a week, in about a week. SAT II training for the princeton review starts on august 31 and runs through september 4. it's a compelling case - if i want to be able to teach for TPR this fall, i'll have to do this training. it also pays $10 an hour, which is more than i'll be making sitting on my arse at home, now that my job has vaporized. anyway, mom and dad haven't said that i can't go, which is almost always a good sign. all i'll have to do is call jessie first thing monday morning and get my name on the list for the trainings, and then buy a plane ticket. i'm a little bit excited about that prospect. in just 7 days, i might be back in california, the place i consider to truly be my home.
