I don't always like getting political (which is mostly a lie) but I've been getting more and more strident about public education. Education is a human right and should be treated as such. I am afraid that the weird property tax funded way that America does public education is going to cause a massive gulf in abilities between the very wealthy and the very poor.

I also believe that universities should have no tuition. Student debt is crippling people's ability to live any sort of life. To be fair, I truly think that university should not only be tuition-free but that university students should be given "wages". I am dangerously socialist and more than a little progressive.

All I know is that I would never raise a child here. Education disparities are a problem all over but America is probably one of the worst in the developed nations.

In a startling state of affairs, I have two job offers staring me down. One is in Georgia, where I am lacking a qualification and would have to be part time. The other is in Cleveland, Ohio, where I am fully qualified and would be full time.

I fell in love with Cleveland when I went last spring. I would love to have this job. I would also love to stay close to mother (with some caveats). We shall see. We shall see. I do not pray, I do not believe. But I would like to hope.

My life is in shambles about me, but at least I have this day and most all of next week to sit back and take stock. Mostly I am taking stock of failures, because I have no victories. I have a life full of failures and mistakes and nothing to show for it. I'm not even being maudlin. I am un-married, childless, mostly friendless (with a few exceptions) and, after the 5th of June, without a real job. I am in a city I hate, and have always hated, with no real chance of escape.

I am not sure what more to say. I am sorry for this. I wish I had better news.
Avancemos!

It has been a moment, and I have to update; I've signed up for the A to Z challenge here.

I will not be returning to the high school at which I am currently working. I am so used to moving and uprooting and leaving friends/acquaintances behind. I am disappointed in myself, but I am also very angry about the circumstances behind my leaving...

I don't have a lot to say. I am often tired, and often sad. Tomorrow, perhaps, will be a little less maudlin.

Until then,
D.M.
