I’ve be hunting fervently trying to find a teaching job for the fall but to no avail. The way it looks, I’ll have to substitute my way through the MaT program. That’s ok by me, but I’ll be living poor for awhile longer. I don’t require a lot of money, but I really don’t want to live with my parents anymore. They’re great and all, but when you’re 22, you don’t want to answer to them everytime you come in late or make too much noise running a late-night computer experiment. (And yes, I will still run late-night computer experiments even though computers won’t be my primary profession. I love them, remember!)

I really like being young. The future is still really far ahead of me and I haven’t made any decisions yet (marriage, children, etc.) that limit my ability to go where I can be happiest. The next couple years will be uncertain, which is something I normally don’t like. At the moment, however, I don’t think I mind what’s going on. Let somebody else worry about what to do with me for awhile. I am a sentient being who reasonably capable of finding some form of income. Besides, when is the last time somebody starved to death in America who was willing to go find some food! As far as my thoughts on my future, I’ll let Einstein sum it up for me: “I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”
