I think the bottom line is, nobody plans to crash, so we'll pretty much never know when it's going to happen, so dress accordingly all the time ... knowing that anything less, well, us non-newbies knew what we were getting into

Bingo. The old "dress for the slide, not the ride" is my mantra too.

Rook, I was looking at some old posts and found this.
Didn't know I could foresee the future (unfortunately)...

You're the ninjafourms seer, yannih!

I had several wakeup calls but I kept playing the odds. That's why I plan to to look for a safer bet like track riding. I still have bigger fish to fry before I even start worrying about bikes too much. It's a little depressing but making time to mess with the bikes would become stressful. I'm at about capacity with the job stuff and it looks like that will get more complicated before it settles down into place. I'm thinking about resigning at the end of this year whether I find a new job first or not. Here we are, mid year and I haven't seen a job that looks interesting yet. Might have to wait until summer after contracts are signed...and as far as I know, I might not even be offered a contract again which would be pretty harmful to my future job prospects. So, quit befpore I get the axe might be the best option.

Bugger.
I wish you really good luck with the situation Rook.
Have a good deep think over some time, try and keep the emotion out of it, and run with the decision.
I know thats sometimes easier said than done.

Just do everything you can to get the best result so you know you gave it everything and have no regrets.
Win lose or draw, what else can you do?

Unless you marry a rich woman.
Now theres an idea!
If you do, I want a 10% idea commission...

I've been thinking it over ever since last summer and never wavered. I wouldn't mind staying but I have no problem breaking camp and moving on. There's a lot more reasons to get out of here than there are to stay. Thanks though yan. I have learned a lot about teaching over the time I've been here, especially this year. I'll take that with me where ever I go. I might stay right here. But they'd have to do quite a lot to restore my confidence and I doubt they even know that.

That doesn't always turn out as good as it sounds!
