    don't leave!

    Don't leave education, Tricia. At least not permanently. If this is what you really want to do, you can't give up on it, even if it's not going to happen this year.

    For now, you've gotta do what you've gotta do. If you need money and benefits and they aren't coming from a teaching position, then they'll have to come from someplace else for a year or two.

    I'm really upset about working outside of education this year, but I keep reminding myself that I'm relatively young, I have lots of working years ahead of me, and if it doesn't happen this year, it will happen another year. And in the meantime, I have family and friends who love me, all my nearest and dearest are in good health, the weather's beautiful today, and my son's soccer team won on Saturday. Things aren't the way I wanted them to be right now, but they could be a heck of a lot worse.

    Best of luck to you and to all of us who are still pounding the pavement!
