What's your daily hair routine? How much do you do to it?

I'm thinking of getting a haircut. The problem, though, is that I'm super lazy re: my hair and I fear that if it gets below a certain length, it'll become so poofy that I'll have to do something with it. I have wavy, curly hair that gets curlier the shorter it is. In third grade, I attempted layers, and it was terrible. I've kept my hair at a medium to long single length since then. I wear it in a ponytail basically every day.

So, I've long been a sci-fi and fantasy geek, both book-wise and tv-wise, but I've never actually watched Doctor Who. Not because I am uninterested, its always sounded like a cool show, but its been going on so long, and the new vs. old series, and all the various doctors... its overwhelming in the sense of well where do you start?

So, fans of the show: where would you suggest a person that is interested but totally new to to series start watching? Newest first? 'Best' first? Chronologically from the very beginning?


DK/DC: what are your favorite, most often used condiments currently? Mine are soy sauce, ketchup, and most recently, Sriracha sauce.

Job Stress

Okay, I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I'm a middle school art teacher. I love my job, but it stresses me out to no end (it's only week 2 and I've already gotten into full-blown panic attack mode). I think I just always say the wrong thing for some reason... My questions are as follows:

1. What other jobs are out there for someone with an art education background? Where would I look?
2. How do you deal with work stress? I'm considering therapy. Does anyone have experience with therapy and work stress?
3. Have you ever switched jobs/careers entirely? What made you decide? How did it turn out?

EDIT: I want to stress that I LOVE my job and I would much prefer a solution to manage stress/anxiety than to switch careers. I really and truly love what I do and I can't imagine doing anything else, if I'm perfectly honest.

EDIT 2, A DAY LATER: Thank you to everybody who has commented. Just knowing there are other people out there in the teaching force who deal with the same kind of stress is nice to know. My biggest stress from work is definitely my own inadequacy and fear of failure, so it's not like switching schools will "fix" the problem. I will consider all of your advice. You're wonderful people. :) THANK YOU!

Job troubles

Is it wrong to take a job hoping that my SO will take me back. She is a lower ranking manger over me and we cant be seen together. we dated for two month and everything was great. then she found out she was Prego from her last b/f ( I told her I didn't care whos child it was I would love him or her like they were my own) that and the stress of not being able to her tell everyone she was dating me was to much for her. Now there is a job opening where I will no longer be under her. but I am unsure that If I take it, it will help and it will be all for nothing . I am happy where I am at and love my job . But I would so move away from her she we could date in public , because I love her More.
