i've had a few college professor friends over the years and i could never understand how they work that job. every year they get older but the students never age like some dorian gray nightmare.
learning more spanish is a great idea. it really opens up a whole other world of travel and gives you lots more options on where to retire.
i was at usf in 1975-about 77. lived at fontana hall, an off-campus, dormatory-style, 13-story zoo on fletcher at north end of campus. we used to put a table and chairs in the elevator and play cards or backgammon there.
when hurricane wilma cut our electric for two weeks i got out of town and did a roadtrip around florida. while in tampa i visted my old haunt. got to go inside fontana hall (think it has new name now--cool, just found it The Edge on 42nd | Tampa, FL Student Housing
) and spoke to some of the students. then i toured the campus and i almost started to tear up because i couldn't find the library. so much change over 30 years.
though i was able to get directions from a campus cop. and he was so respectful of this grey haired guy in his then silver t-bird. funny 'cause i was likely stoned a lot my last time there. but talking to the cop this time didn't make me paranoid at all. well whatdaya know.
