Any floating subs in here?

So, I have taken a job as a floating sub at a new district. This means that the district gets to choose where to send me, ie, to which middle or high school I am needed.

Most days are good except for the fact that they donít let me know which school Iím going to be at until 15 minutes before I want to get there, but Iím managing. (I literally donít get the notification of which school Iím at until 6:45.)

Today, Iím stuck in the library of the high school as a building sub waiting for them to need me. THIS IS SOOOOOO BORING! Iíve been here for five hours and nada, zip, zilch. I at least found a Terry Pratchett book I miraculously havenít read, but Iíve been sitting on this hard wooden chair for hours twiddling my thumbs. I like being busy. I thrive on being busy.


1. For other floating substitutes, how are you liking or not liking your job?

2. How do you deal with the lack of purpose on days like this one?

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely, Bored in PA
