I'll be back!

Hey everyone!

Thank you very much for your invaluable comments. Making up my mind had turned out excruciatingly painful but I eventually decided to go for the IT position. So that's the end of this blog. Now I've got to brace myself for juggling my uni, work and personal life. It's going to be a challenge far greater than anything I've been through so far BUT I'm aware that: soon as people become more competent, God or life will give them bigger things to do. -- Scott Peck
Tomorrow I'm videoing one of my classes and I have to figure out how I can possibly explain myself. That'll be pretty much it for now but I'm damn sure about one thing: I'll be back!

Please help!

As some of you may know I've got some experience in IT. Now a friend of mine is looking for someone who would work for their company and overlook (oversee, of course) a project for a major client. I didn't turn them down immediately but asked for loads (I mean LOADS) of money and it seems now they're completely out of their mind or hard pushed for time or whatever but they're on the verge of saying yes.

What the hell am I supposed to do? I love teaching for all the damn reasons I've posted about when I set up this blog. Most people would dream of such a well-paid job in their thirties but could I really sell what I love for formal attire, stress, no time to finish the two semesters I've got to go at my university? I certainly didn't plan for teaching to be a one-off fill-in. I did think it to be my vocation. Shall I throw away all I love about teaching? Is it a challenge I should try to rise up to or is it a test of my character and integrity?

I haven't got a clue. I've got to consult lots of people and decide by the beginning of next week. What do you think? What would you do? What kind of questions do I need to ask myself before I make any decision?

Please, comment!
