I have decided....

to discontinue teaching, to become a housewife.

My brother so eloquently stated: "Ayana, you've been going down. First you were an engineer, then you were a teacher, now you are going to be a housewife." In short, I suck and I can't hold down a job, I know.

Two of my closest friends in college are rocketing through their careers, while every time you turn around I have made a career change. I really do wish that I was the type of person that enjoyed going to work everyday. I wish I liked to wear business suits and high heels and pow-wow with executives. But I don't.

I don't like to 'have' to be somewhere EVERY day. I hate dress codes and predetermined lunch hours. I want to do what I want to do when I want to do it. Is that asking too much? Am I a spoiled brat? Don't answer that.

Anyway, E and I decided that now was a pretty good time for me to leave. We are financially stable and can afford to live off of one income. We'll see how it goes...

Hmmmm...I have to disagree with your brother about going downhill (engineer, teacher, housewife). In my opinion, all three of these jobs are important. And, you are clearly just trying to figure out what makes you happy and nothing is wrong with that!

Although I hate to admit this b/c I am all about the advancement of women, I do think that part of the problem with our society is kids not having someone at home. I say someone b/c the director of my business group is a female and she refers to her husband as Mr. Mom b/c he is the one that takes care of their kids while she brings home the bacon
