Timken Roller Bearing Co., calendar, September 1950, teacher at desk
I’m putting off getting a real job. Not that I don’t respect and enjoy my job now, but I need to make more money. I can’t really live on the money I’m making currently.
I got my education degree and my license to teach. My first year was such a disaster however, that I’ve winced at the thought of teaching ever since.
In the upcoming year though, I’m planning to apply to as many teaching jobs as I can find. I need to start living.
Girl on the phone
There’s this one moment that really sticks out in my mind. It may seem minor to you, but it meant the world to me. I was talking to a friend on the phone and he said “you’re a very beautiful girl”. It was so sweet because it was over the phone. It wasn’t a guy at a bar trying his best lines on me, it was genuine. It was when I thought he kind of liked me but I wasn’t sure. It still makes me smile! Sadly, it never worked out.
