For those of you who have not heard yet, I have a job. When school starts on September 3, I will be a substitute school bus driver for the Ferndale School District. This seems like a job that will fit well with the internship that I am doing part-time at my church, since I will have off evenings and weekends. Even though I will be a substitute without a regular route, I hear that most substitutes get to drive quite a lot. The pay is also quite good compared to, say, working as a teller in a bank, which was another job I was considering.
Even though school doesn’t start for another month, I have been going to training for the past week. Soon (probably next week) I will take a driving test to get my school bus endorsement, and I will be able to take buses out whenever I want to run errands – er, I mean, get used to driving routes.
