This will be a short post, as I have only a few minutes before it is time to leave to retrieve children.
I am moving back to Arizona. I did not come upon this decision lightly nor with ease. I love my current job teaching freshmen the art and skill of writing and thinking analytically, but it doesn’t pay enough to sustain my little family. I have bouts of “feeling rich” followed by bouts of worrying whether all bills will be paid. I have months where I earn no income at all. Many of my colleagues and cohorts work second and even third jobs in unrelated fields just to make ends meet.
I’ll be living with family and working on getting a new job in the same field but with less worry, as I’ll have available childcare and less expenses weighing heavy on my mind and bank account.
I will continue to write, to live my passion.
A plan is in motion to make a new, better life for my children and for me.
