Per Request and Other Stuff

First of all, I wanted to answer Roderick’s inquiry about my job interview. It was short which isn’t a good sign to me. However, I am everything they seem to be looking for with one exception. I don’t have experience with living history. In addition to my job as a historian, I’d also have to learn to fire weapons from the War of 1812 through World War I…in costume. I am not too thrilled about this part of the job, because I’m not a fan of guns. I know how to shoot one, and I’m a damn good shot, but that doesn’t mean I like guns. Anyway, I was supposed to hear from them by the end of last week, but I still haven’t heard anything. Also, I seriously doubt they can or will meet my salary requirements.

In other news, I will be teaching a class this morning, which I think will be fun. I enjoy being in the classroom. Afterwards, I have a speech to give to a group of the corps of cadets about the school during the First World War. I am also looking forward to this. We will be meeting them while they take a lunch break from a march from the site of the original school to the present location. The meeting will take place on a covered bridge. Hopefully, this will all go without a hitch.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
