I am it. But it is becoming apparent that I need to become less so. I need more adult students in the daytime, before I go to work-work.

Yet part of me wonders, if I put word out that I’ve got time, will I have a bigger response than I can handle? Then again, what if no adults want conversation classes?

Gah. This is the curse of being semi-self-employed.

    If you get a bigger response than you can handle, can’t you just pick and choose who you want to work with, and how many, and when? Sounds like an ideal situation to me.

    It’s absolutely ideal, Beth. I am just really, really bad at saying ‘no’. (cue Oklahoma music) I’m just a girl who cain’t say no, I’m in a turrible fiiiix!

    You made me giggle. I had a picture of you in my mind from about 10 years ago, coming back from Port Hardy and saying the same thing. Come to my house and we’ll have our own conversation class where I will teach you how to say “Nooooo.” Of course I am sure that Arwen and Ryan will say that I am the last person to be teaching someone to say “no” to things.

    Also, are you wanting to fill your time with students because you need the money or because you feel that you should fill your time with something ‘productive’?

    Gen, I want more money. I am motivated by base greed. Well, that, and the fact that I want to go to the UK in the spiring, and would prefer to do so without ghastly towers of debt.

    Also, I suspect that you and I could learn to say ‘no’ from each other. Because I can rationalize it for others, just not myself. Oh, and never in Port Hardy.

    Imagine House saying no – adding insults impugning their chastity and their ancestry – and then your demure “No, thank you” will seem like love.

    Arwen, House has been in my mind a lot lately. I want to speak in his voice to students I know are slacking. I repress it, but how very, very sweet it would be to just let him out to castigate freely!

    I don’t know if that is motivation by base greed. It sounds more like to me that you want to go away and enjoy yourself on a much deserved vacation and not worry about the bills.

    Okay, not greed, then. Practicality, for sure, though.
