I got an email from the coordinator of the Sociology program at CCBC, the community college where I sometimes teach.  I hadn't heard from her in nearly 6 months, even though I had been attempting to reach out.  She let me know that, yes, I got my fall course at the college.

I'm elated.

On the one hand, it was probably a circumstance of little worry.  It's a Saturday morning class, and generally professors hate those.  I'm normally up at 5:30 am on Saturdays, so teaching a 9am class is really no big deal to me.  And it's a topical matter I enjoy, so I'm fine with it.

On the other hand, I'm really happy to have this opportunity.  Given the classes I've missed (one winter, one spring, two summer) because of poor enrollment or just no opportunity to teach, I've missed out on...and yeah, I'm going ot mention money, about $10,000 this year.  It doesn't really destroy me, as my regular salary is enough to support my general lifestyle, but the normal money I would save or spend on a lot of frivilous things has been pretty much gone for the first 6 months of the year.  It's frustrating when you see the numbers.

This course will allow me to bank up some money, added to the fact that because I'm not paying as much for my next semester (and won't be for any future semesters), I'll be able to save a lot more money every time I teach.  Yeesh.  Breathe out.

I'm just really really glad to have this course.  Not only because of the financial reasons, but because I really thought I might have been pushed out of CCBC as their enrollment drops.  So, yeah, happy.
