$601 for the month of January 2017 – teaching online VIPKIDs

SO yeah I gots paid $601 for last month. (It would have been $622 but I had to cancel a class, and I had two teacher no shows, one of which was my completely fault…)

But I know that’s great and all and I’m thankful and all BUT…

BUT…

I am so SO frickin frustrated because of my Teacher No Show. I was teaching back to back lessons from 530a through 730a (each class is 25 minutes long) and I was 4 minutes late to my 730a and they canceled it, called me a no show, and deducted $10 from my pay.

ARGHGHHH!

Hurts my heart. It really does. Like a physical ache in my HEART. Especially when you wake up so early and that $10 deduction is essentially an hour of pay (without bonuses).

It hurts the soul. I want to kick somebody. I want to kick all these messy papers on the floor near my foot…but I don’t want to clean it up, humph, so I won’t. I guess.

But alas, we must be mature adults.

I have learned so many hard lessons with this Teacher No Show $10 deduction per class shenanigan. I have to get better about keeping my classes right at 25 minutes and not a minute over so I have time to leave feedback and still have a minute or so leftover before my next class.

Hard, expensive lessons on time management indeed.

But it won’t happen to me again. OKAY! I got dis.

Shiiiiiietttt!

So far for February month I have $274 so far. I’m hoping by the end of the month I will get closer to $700.

July 2017 will be a good month. I will be finished paying the $3,000 I owe my momma for school tuition.

In August 2017, I hope to finish paying off the other $3,000 I owe my father.

And in October 2017, I hope to have enough saved to buy a cute lil home in Third Ward Houston or a nice, ample sized home in Southwest Houston. You know what they say, location, location, location.

And guys, I am not just HOPING I am doing.

Deep sigh.

Big sigh.

Heavy sigh

Patience, sensei, patience

Love always,
