So... I am taking the MA teaching certification test so I can expand my job search to public schools in the area. The earliest I can take is September 26th. The next available dates with the test I need to take is in November.
Now September 26th is DH's birthday, but obviously he doesn't mind if I have to test all day. The real problem is that it is the wedding date of a good friend from high school. I am not IN the wedding, but for a variety of reasons I feel bad RSVPing no.
So is it jerky of me to blow off a friend's wedding to take this test in September? Or is it idiotic of me to put a wedding in front of something that could be important in helping me find steady work? The chances are I wouldn't get a job before Nov. anyway, since jobs usually open up around Dec. when at least a trimester has gone by, but then there is also maternity leave which is one of the common ways to find work in schools these days, and obvious doesn't follow a set schedule.
