Unfree Time

I’ve resigned from my teaching job at the university. I’ve rather enjoyed my two years there but I feel that the place is starting to shackle me.

Teaching is a demanding job that calls on a significant amount of commitment. At the same time, Law school is getting serious and I really need to commit a lot of time there as well. Last but not least, I feel that I have been neglecting my business the last one year.

So, it was merely a reassignment of priorities. There are only 24-hours in a day after all and I had to decide where to allocate that time. In order to avoid starvation, I’m going to have to make more effective use of my time next year.

Incidentally, I’ve also decided not to run for the IET committee. Several people have been asking me to stay on as the treasurer. A friend reminded me a couple of weeks ago that I should steer clear of a messiah complex, and I should!

And this has the added advantage of giving me some extra time to pursue other adventures.


PS: I think it’s time that I actually accomplished something with my life. I should really stop mucking about.
