my supervisor and my manager spoke with us the other day regarding our employment status. the three months we signed up for as interns were up, and we were sort of in limbo—not knowing if we were gonna head back to our old job or staying at our current job.
my manager started the conversation with "it's been three months, and we want to be fair to operations..." which kinda got my other two co-interns thinking that our asses were gon' be sent back to the production floor. personally, i knew it was a prelude to something better, and true enough, they eventually asked us to stay. for another three months. with the chance that we get hired as regular, bona fide, with-the-job-comes-the-salary coaches.
i guess it was my overconfidence that told me that i wasn't going back. or my dedication to the job. or my talent and personality. whatever the case, i'm just happy to be given an opportunity to show what else i can do.
it's just funny how i'm teaching professional-level english when i haven't received formal training. i just know i can do it, that i can help them fuckers learn and improve. i guess this is where faith in myself really helps. i have the balls to do what i'm doing right now even though i don't have a degree. but i'm still wishing i did.
