( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Well... I have heard about that... and I guess I can sort of understand how that sort of thing works, and I do see that I am trading in one sort of thought police for the next. My basic hope, to be brutally honest, stems from the horrible realization that even though it could be argued that I was within a few strides of being relatively successful in the "rat race" (I ended my relationship with my previous employer, and had some very nice management offers waiting for me) I realized that even if I were to win the rat race... I would still be a rat :(

It got to me... I decided I had to find something at least *marginally* more fulfilling than sitting around and telling clients half veiled truths, wondering about accounts receivable, and waiting for the newest wave of buzzwords to wash over us so that I could retool the marketing documents so that they were "buzzword compliant." I am hopeing that maybe through teaching I will be able to actually see *progress* and *value* be created. I like the idea of seeing someone enter a classroom not knowing about _________ (whatever it may be I end up teaching, according to PhD friends of mine, I can expect my first few years to teach computer literacy...) and leaving the classroom 4 months later actually *KNOWING* something. And I know that for the average set of students most of them won't care... but maybe, just maybe, there will be one every once in a while that I can actually see *progress*... and *learn*... and become a better person... all because I was standing in front of the room waving my arms around wildly and ranting on about who knows what. (hell, I was able to convince clients I was interested in some of the most *boring things ever*... I know I can make damned near anything even mildly exciting.)

And hey... If I get to sit around and research complexity theory for a few hours a week, and write some papers here and there... even better :) We'll see how it goes... One of my ex-professors has agreed to let me grade all of her most boring assingments for the rest of this semester... let's see if I can do this, eh? :) And thanks for the good wishes, I am going to need them!
