I had an interview with the America Reads chapter at UNLV yesterday and I was hired! Starting in January, I will be going to yet-to-be-determined elementary schools in the valley on Monday-Wednesdays to tutor struggling students in reading. I think this will be a great opportunity to serve my community, get teaching experience, AND make some extra money. I’ll still be working at Michael’s Books on Friday and Saturdays so there is no worry there. I don’t know how I’m going to handle it all though. Two jobs, six classes, plus other planned activities (book club and poetry readings at the bookstore, blues guitar/harp workshops in Henderson, etc). Oh boy oh boy I’ll be busy.

In tea news, my “Green Tea Starter Set” from Den’s Tea came in the mail today. A bunch of samples of green tea plus some informative pamphlets on Japanese green tea for $3 shipping included. What a deal. I tried the sample of Sencha Fuka-midori that came with the set and I love it. I’ll will definitely be buying more of it in the future. Much better than the Maeda-en brand Gold Sencha I have been drinking for the past week. Also, the tea from Den’s has a noticeably larger amount of caffeine in it. I had two infusions of it and I’m bouncing around the house.
