"Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others."

...as Confucius said.

Mrs. Ricardipus was accepted to teacher's college at the local university yesterday. A big fat envelope arrived bearing the good news, along with a request for an equally big fat tuition deposit.

Oh.

Tuition.

Textbooks.

Daycare.

Studying.

Exams.





Career!

She's been waiting a long time for this, while someone else got his career in line, so now it's time. And she'll be excellent at it.

Oh god, a career as a teacher. Is that a good idea?

Seriously though, congrats to the better half.

ahlax: the noise made when you realise you got the job.

I'm looking forward to sharing in the hefty pension teachers get here when they retire.

Oh, did I say that out loud? Oops.
