  1. First, I love this post and format!

    Now for my two cents:
    1. A or B. I think blogging becomes ingrained and it’s obviously a good outlet. But picking up some other hobbies/writing topics is a great idea! Don’t be afraid to expand the scope of your blog.

    2. no freaking idea–this is exactly my dilemma too!! thank you for laying it out like that. although it’s kind of daunting in such a big list–so many options!

    3. B. Don’t give up hope!

    4. A and C. Does that make me cynical? Teaching in this city requires so much energy! There’s no way someone could sustain that. Which leads back to question 2–quite possibly another job/city may decrease stress/energy output?

  2. All these high stakes questions, but all the answers are more or less positive, or could be. Predict? Guess? Suggest? I’ll guess:

    A, C, B, and plead the fifth.
