I posted last term that I intend to retire this year due to work overload and mismanagement. I'm not under any form of support at work and it's very unlikely I will be. However I just don't want to be there anymore and I resent the time it takes from my life. I've put markers, countdowns by day and weeks in my diary. I've booked things to look forward to up to the end of summer term. Any other ideas to shake this feeling that I'm wasting my life? For financial reasons I can't go earlier than summer and may even have to plod on til next Christmas.
