Yeah, a career or hobby that consumes your entire life is not always 
such a great thing. It's nice to be able to take a break or step away, 
and teaching allows you to do that! (Since you likely have summer 
breaks, and fresh noobs appear every Fall.) Also, working with people 
can be rewarding in different ways!

Best wishes!
