decided on the management position

I have accepted the DOS position and i am supposed to sign the contract on Monday. I am a bit worried though. I was just offered a job at a college in Elblag as well (north part of Poland not far from the Baltic Sea). The college would also pay 4000 zl and a free flat but the job would not start until October so I would have two months of no work.

I am certainly more interested in teaching at a college or university than a management position. Much more interested. But the college position is not teaching literature so it is not that ideal. I just want to meet some writers and thinkers and artists at some point.

I hope I made the right decision.

If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
