After working in the academic world as a college professor for many years I have finally retired. I started the process a year ago, so this was not driven by the virus. It was driven by exhaustion. After having been dealing with students with less preparation and increased levels of rudeness I simply wore out.
I must say that my age and health do place me in an enhanced risk position, so any second guessing was allayed. The decision is the right one, at least for me.
