And life goes on......
4:30 was wakey time this morning... long before any alarm went off. More sleep would be good.
So what drags this old pup from bed so early? Life's pressures run deep, and sometimes they force themselves to the fore. Like.... now.
The future is firming a bit, and it's becoming clear this is almost surely my last year teaching at the High school level. What happens after that is far less clear. The list is long, varied, and frightfully without surety.
I may teach Post-Secondary (College level).
I may teach adult night school.
I may work as a substitute.
I may teach PennDOT certification courses.
I may go back to industry in some fashion.
I may work for myself in some niche market to be found.
Most likely, some mix of several of the above. What's not included is any form of security, stability, financial safety, or benefits of any kind.
I suspect that is why I am wide awake at 4:30 in the morning.
