Summer Blogging: Relocation and New Rules

Relocation: Although my profile says I live in Norfolk, VA (which I do), I spend my summers in Corolla, a resort beach town on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I'm a teacher, remember, so I have my summers "off." (By the way, teachers have their summers off the same way everybody else has their weekends off: we don't work and we don't get paid.) So anyway, my parents built a beach house in Corolla about 20 years ago, and I've lived there every summer since. It's like having an entirely different life for two months out of the year. I wake up whenever I want to, sit on the beach all day, and drink fairly good wine every night. Oh, and occasionally I work, but only two or three days a week, and even then it's at a bookstore so it hardly counts as work.

I mention this relocation because I imagine some of my posts throughout the rest of the summer will involve bitching about tourons (tourists + morons = tourons) and I don't want anyone to be confused.

Also, in your head you are probably pronouncing "Corolla" like you would the car. You're going to have to stop that immediately. "Corolla" is pronounced "Cuh'RAWL'uh."

New Rules: No more blogging on Fridays. It's just not gonna happen. On Fridays I'm either working or preparing for weekend guests or getting drunk earlier than usual or some combination of the three. Also, no blogging on Sundays. I'm gonna try this thing where I don't even turn on the computer on Sundays. Just to see what that's like.

So there you go. Happy summer.

I just went 5 days without a computer and it almost killed me! It has taken at least 2 hours just to read blogs, and I don't even want to look at my email accounts.

Good luck.

Laura said...

Oh my god...seriously? Well since you never call me anymore (except when you're cling-clanging around in the kitchen) I guess I won't know what's going on with you! Oh who are we kidding...you'll never be able to keep away from the blog.

Patrick said...

I really must protest this no Friday, no Sunday. I really don't think I can survive on only 5 blogs a week. So, either revoke this no Friday/Sunday bs, or you are just going to have double post. I have to have something to read when I get home from work, and you're the first link on my favorites I click. So get it together. 5 ain't gonna cut it ;)

lulu said...

You don't get paid over the summer? That sucks. Here we have money deducted from our checks each week, and get that money over the summer. I don't think I could be disciplined enough to save moeny for the summer myself

Megan said...

Yeah, we can do the same thing, but technically that's not actually getting paid to work over the summer. People have this attitude that teaching is such a sweet gig because you get these summer-long paid vacations, when in reality we're only paid to work the time we actually work. So I get paychecks all year long, but they're based on the premise that I work 10 months a year.

lulu said...

It does suck. I am getting paid for 10 hours of work this summer because I am helping to plan for the curriculum of a new class we are having next year. 10 hours. I have done at least 15 so far and am less than 1/2 done. Teaching is so not a sweet gig. My brother's best friend made all these comments at Christmas time about how he wished he could have 2 weeks off, etc. He's a partner at a big downtown firm and probably makes 350,000+ a year. I told him I wished I could have his paycheck,

wonderturtle doesn't collect a paycheck at all in the summer. I would be evicted.

Megan said...

Yeah, that two week vacation? Also unpaid.

I would also be evicted. Because I'm pretty sure my landlord doesn't take Visa.

And (I think you would agree) teaching IS a sweet gig, but not because of the paycheck, and not in the way people who usually say that mean it.

lulu said...

Teaching is the hardest thing I have ever done, but the most rewarding.
