Let me acquaint my good friends in the education hierarchy with the definition of the word "desperate."
Desperate is when sales are down..expenses are up...you don't know if you can pay the bills and whether you can stay in business...
Desperate is not knowing what to do next...Desperate is learning to appreciate what you have...whatever it is.
Desperate is not making $100K and having to wonder if you can survive on $95K.
