Happy Family Day long weekend to those of you who have it! It's been a while since I've updated, and it's only fair I let you guys in on the loop. I can tell a handful of you are wondering where I've been and why I've disappeared.
For those of you who don't know, I am a new high school teacher, and Pinc Stuff was started in my university years as a hobby. I learned a lot throughout undergrad, and it was nice to have a business running on the side while I was in school. However, since I started my first job, my students quickly found me online through youtube, and it was difficult to separate my online persona with my teacher one. I really had to make a decision and focus my time and energy into the career I've always dreamed of.
Update on the work situation, I recently transferred to a new school and I have to drive half way across the city every day. I leave ridiculously early in the morning, and spend my free time planning and prepping for upcoming lessons. My days are long, but I am very thankful for the opportunity. You have to pay your dues when you're a newbie!
I'm also teaching a business course: Entrepreneurship that I'm enjoying. I tell my students about my experience running a business, and bring it up as an example when we're discussing certain terms. One student asked me how old I was because I sound like I've done so much, haha! I said I ran my business while I was in school... I'm not THAT old... yet.
As always, I hope you're all doing well, and thank you for stopping by~ I wish you all the very best in your journey in life <3
