I really should be job hunting right now, but I can't focus (that's becoming a theme lately, isn't it?) because I just got a call to set up a job interview tomorrow.
Wish me luck!!! I would be working for gay rights, which is something I feel strongly about, so I think I'm the sort of person they would want. :)
Now, on to a different topic, which may also be distracting me...
I haven't really talked about Samhain much this year. My Pagan followers already know all about Samhain, but my non-Pagan followers might not. Full details can come later, but for now I'll just say that it is one of the biggest Pagan holidays, and it is one of the two most important celebrations to me. And the date is October 31st.
Well guess what? October 31st is on a Monday this year, which is the day of my on campus class.
I'm really torn. On one hand I want to just focus on Samhain that day, but on the other hand I don't want to miss class.
My family thinks it's a no brainer that I should attend class on Samhain.
I would compare that to a Christian attending school on Christmas. I'm not saying that no Christian would attend school or go to work (many do work on Christmas) on December 25th, but my point is that most really wouldn't want to, and with good reason.
I e-mailed my professor about this, she said it's fine either way. Our school just requires I give a two week notice for missing class due to a religious holiday.
So, what do you think? Am I being unreasonable for seriously considering skipping school on Samhain?
