I finished my education degree and I started looking for jobs.
I applied with many different School districts.
I interviewed with a couple of places in Oakland and I also interviewed with a couple of places right in San francisco. One of the interviews went very well and I was not surprised to hear back. The interview was with a science and technology School in San francisco. They offered me a job teaching 8th, 9th, and 10th grade applied sciences. I was ecstatic when I got the job offer. I immediately said yes. After that, I had to figure out where I was going to live. I barely made enough money to afford a one-bedroom apartment, so I found a shared space with another professional woman. She had a small dog, but I don’t have allergies and did not care. She was very friendly and we shared the same interests. Both of us use recreational marijuana and she actually works as a consultant for a San Francisco cannabis dispensary. She talks to other cannabis shop owners about marketing and advertising and promotional materials. She is usually gone throughout the week working on cannabis jobs, but I see her on the weekends. As a cannabis consultant, she is frequently working in other states. A couple of months ago she was visiting a cannabis dispensary in my old hometown. She was close enough to my mom and dad to stop by and say hello. I obviously did not ask her to visit with them, but it was still very interesting and a weird coincidence that she was there.
