Good News!

For those of you who are waiting for the announcement of a baby Gibbons you'll have to wait a little longer. . . BUT, I did get a job today, which is really good news! Before moving out here I had applied for several math positions at the community and liberal arts colleges around the area. I didn't think much would come of it because I honestly didn't know how competitive I'd be coming right out of school, but luckily a college here about an hour away had me interview and offered me the job today! My official title is a Developmental Math Specialist, so I'll be working in the Student Support Services department helping students who are struggling or behind with math. I'll teach a remedial math class and then spend the rest of my time helping students in an individual or small group setting. Only bummer is that it's a bit of a drive, but I'll only have to do it 4 days a week this coming semester and hopefully I can cut it down to 3 days a week for the next. Distance aside, it's going to be an great opportunity for me and I'm lucky to have found something so quickly out here, kind of a small (alright big) miracle!  So we'll both be slaves to the professional world come August, but at least our students loans will get paid off more quickly!

Got myself a road bike the other day, awesome perks of having Jared work for Trek. I decided that I need to get into better shape. It's not that I think I look bad or anything because I don't mind the way my clothes fit or whatever, but I just don't feel healthy ya know. Anyway, I went on my first ride this morning and it felt good, did 12 miles in just under an hour so I was pretty proud of myself!

Jared is stoked that he's finally converted me to road biking!
