I dropped Tali over at her friend A's house and had a few hours to kill, with just Shira at my side. I also had two rather important application forms to send off. It struck me that I could use the time (equipped with my trusty Tom Tom in tow) to drop the envelopes off to the individual schools and have an idea the kind of place I might end up teaching in.
Two hours, two schools and quite a number of miles under my belt later, I came home and now await the results of my endeavours.
Then again, I could go down the pessimistic route and wonder if I'll ever enter those establishments again.
