Whew! I caught myself just in the nick of time!
Believe it or not, I actually and seriously considered taking on a college teaching job, starting mid January, and running until mid May. It would have been 3 hours per week for a total of 15 weeks. And maybe bring me about $3,000.00 gross. Maybe.
What made me consider this insanity? That’s an interesting question that can perhaps best be answered by the following: I was flattered to be asked; I was tempted by my love of teaching; I was intrigued by the opportunity to get into the college level with all its perks; I imagined the fun I would have with these older students; I liked the idea of the challenge of preparing and delivering a wonderful program that no one had ever been able to offer before. In short, my ego got involved, and drew me into a temporary state of madness.
Thankfully, I came to my senses during the night, and woke up resolved to inform my former principal that I was much too comfortable at home. Thanks, but no thanks.
Whew! That was a close call!
