Join a committee at work

Teach summer school again
5/21/2017: It seems pretty likely that I’ll do this in August. My principal approached me and asked me to apply.

Help with an LGBTQ+ group at school
5/21/2017: The current adviser is retiring, so I should ask around about this soon.
12/29/2017: I’m co-advisor this year. It was so sweet for an 8th grader to come to me and ask. I am incredibly flattered and happy to support these kiddos.

Save $5,000 toward tiny home construction
12/29/2017: I have a savings account at $1,500, but that’s kind of a general rainy day fund. Once my account is at about $8,000, I think that I would be comfortable making a separate account for tiny home savings.
