I've always said my retirement will be teaching. I'm not really the retirement type. I need something to keep me busy, keeps my mind turning, and keeps me ineteracting with people on a daily basis. But I'm also not much for institutional pressures or regulations. So by teach, I mean be a cult leader somewhere out in the middle of the desert.

Don’t let your agency wait for someone in your office to get sick to make the call for you. Self quarantine, work from home. They don’t seem to care enough, care for yourself instead.
