    Is There Life After Teaching?

    As great as it is I'm thinking about waving the white flag and not teaching anymore/for awhile.

    Still two years away from the minimum age for a retirement visa...

    Just wondering, is there life after teaching?

    If you've got an income coming in I'd imagine there's a ruddy good life after teaching.

    God give me E1000 p/m rental income or other and I'll show my gratitude by ensuring most of it ends up funding new Isaan houses for the poor old folks from the comfort of my brand new phuket condo's bedroom.

    Why not just keep your hand in the game two or three days a week and then decide.

    Of course there's life, but you may leave and find, after leaving, that you weren't really ready to leave.
    When being run out of town, get in front of the crowd and make it appear like a parade.

    Won't you miss the thrilling environment of a school though?

    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    Start up a small business.
    The worst job in Thailand must be the man who has to sit down with a blue marker pen and mark a number two on the two-baht coins to stop people thinking they are one-baht coins.

    Widdle things in a rocking chair on the porch and shout obscenities at passing children.

    Decent life.

    Widdle, to try to reach ones penis with ones mouth.

    Whittle, to carve wood especially in more complicated shapes and patterns.

    Simple sentences I write. Export something. Learn the market. Send out samples. Go from there. Easy.

    ^

    Only easy when you find 'something' to export.
    Something happens and I'm head over heels
    I never find out till I'm head over heels

    Ah don't take my heart
    Don't break my heart
    Don't throw it away

    ^ I believe that's where intelligence and creatvitiy come into play. Remember K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid)---a guy here exports seashells and he can't keep up with the demand in the states. It' crazy when you think about people in Florida buying seashells from Vietnam and Thailand. Anything's possible. I'll, hopefully (not pipe-dreaming) get started with my thing soon. I just haven't found the make I like yet.

    That would be a great thread Phil. There are obviously many do's and don't you could share.
