    I have tried to participate in the last two, and enjoyed the chatter and community (and eye-candy), but had little time due to work. I really plan to participate more this time! It is summer break for teachers, but I am planning out my mid-life crisis (career change) as soon as the semester ends. This should be a part of my transition.

    I have been teaching in some form for 20 years, but in the public schools at my district for 15. When I was younger, I actually swore I would not be a high school math teacher, and that is where I have found myself. (Ironic?) Since my first degree is actually pure math and I have all but my paper for my Master's degree in pure math, I am considering pursuing actuarial science. (I will only need to pass a few exams and take a few more courses.)

    Really, though, I would love to make a living with art, but am not sure how to pursue that. My mother and brother (who just got his art degree) are both encouraging me to try pursuing art, but with school loans to pay off, I need a career with a stable income. Fortunately, although he is worried about how we will make ends meet, my husband is supportive of a switch.

    I have always thought being an actuary would be a seriously cool job! Keep us posted.

    Art is awesome, but as for making a real, true living with it, well, that's the tricky part! LOL.

    So, PurpleRealm, what kind of weather do you have during winter? Milder or more extreme? Here, it is very mild, so I really don't consider us EVER having winter. To me, No snow=No winter. I miss winter. *sigh*

    PurpleRealm, I'm sorry! I don't mean to be all upside down for you! Is it a bad winter so far? Your summer (the one that just passed) seemed brutal!

    I'm so happy you two are both on vacation, Halla and Tea! Bring on the arting!
