More snow, more job searching

We still have a foot of snow on the ground. Then, freezing rain fell, freezing on contact with the snow, covering our pretty snow with a hard icy layer. Tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, there is going to be snow mixed with sleet. It will not be fun. It will be soupy and messy.

In other news, my job search continues. Most of the jobs I have been applying for are "pool" jobs: applications for term-by-term, contract positions. Because they institutions I am applying for don't even know if they will need teachers, they often don't review those applications until before a term starts. And if I don't get contacted back, I don't know if it is because my application wasn't looked at, or whether it was looked at and failed. I am not particularly happy with this entire system. But at least some of these are pretty easy to finish, and in a way, they are a type of reconnaissance: if I don't get any feedback on this, the entire community college idea might be foregone in favor of...I don't know. Going to teach English in Taiwan? But it is still early March, and I am proceeding apace for 2014.
