Well, it's two years later and I have left, and I don't intend on ever going back. My thinking on jobs now is along the lines of anything but teaching. So how did I get out and what challenges did I face? In this blog I'll detail how I actually managed this tremendous feat, so that you could maybe have a go yourself.
I used to live for moments (mainly holidays) but now I'm able to live in (and enjoy) the moment. If you feel that your work/life balance is 99% work and 1% life (and in that 1% you still end up spending your time thinking about work) then this blog could well be for you.
In my next post, I'll give my main reasons for leaving the profession. See you soon. (Click here to go straight to that page.)
