Ever stress yourself out so much you teeter on the verge or vomiting or crying? Yea I’m there. Ever since this part-time adjunct teaching opportunity came up I have been freaking out both in excitement and nervousness. The reason it has been such a challenge deciding whether to accept or not is not a matter of wanting the job, it is a matter of feasibility due to being in Memphis while I currently reside in Knoxville.

Pros: Related work experience, extra money (albeit small), keep current part-time job and free rent with parents in Knoxville, stay at a friend’s while in Memphis
Cons: Only one class for 6 hours a week, driving 11 hours a week (hence the income increase being small)

It is also only for 10 weeks which could be either a good thing and a bad thing. Setting the monetary gain aside (since it is basically negligible) it comes down to one question – is it worth driving 11 hours a week to get experience teaching one class? Maybe I should wait until next term to see if they would have more than one class available? Unfortunately this kind of decision cannot be riddled out by making lists or asking others’ opinions, it’s a gamble. Experience is good to snatch up when you can but sanity is also important.

It’s time like these when I look to food for solace, specifically dessert. Enter in this no-churn s’mores ice cream. I thought for certain that upon freezing the marshmallow creme would cause the ice cream to be rock hard. In fact the exact opposite occurred creating the fluffiest and creamiest ice cream I have ever made. To make things even better, it tastes just like a s’more with plenty of milk chocolate and graham cracker bits. Let your worries drift away for a few scoops-time.
