    ALL RIGHT COOL. We'll start soon, going to have to do a minor tweak.

    If you want to teach college, do get your master's in math rather than education. Some colleges will hire you to teach math (especially developmental) with an education degree and a math certification, but it's not a good look. My master's in in English, so it's much easier for me to get university-level work in my field.

    You will.
    Masters will get you a university-level job at any school in the country but only as a lecturer or instructor. Most schools will require a doctorate to become a full-on tenure-track professor, but it's possible to do it with a masters at some schools, especially community colleges.
    Be prepared to adjunct to start--and for a long time. Schools are increasingly relying on part-time faculty to teach the bulk of their classes. Your biggest enemy will be uncertainty--you can make money, but what's your back-up plan when it's a week before classes start and your class is either canceled due to low enrollment or handed over to a full-time faculty member so they can make load? It's a tough row to hoe, and you should definitely have a back-up plan in mind.
    It might be easier for math--I'm speaking as an English instructor (with a 4.8 out of 5 on RateMyProfessor and a hotness badge ooolala)--but I would definitely expect to adjunct. Best thing you can do as an adjunct and in grad school is to make friends in your department. Make sure your professors know you; when you adjunct, stay in good with the head of the department, anyone supervising you, and the department secretary (seriously, the department secretary is your best friend when you're scraping for that one additional class). You'll need these people to not only hire you but also offer letters of reference. Full-time positions in teaching are very competitive; anything you can do to make yourself stand out, do it.
    If you were out for my advice, I would say that now is a very tough time to enter education. I just lost a full-time position due to low college enrollment and budget issues. Depending on which state you're in, state budgets will be either your best friend or worst enemy, but the Gates Foundation's standards for school improvement are being adopted by a lot of states, and they hit small schools and community colleges really, really hard. You can do it, but have a back-up plan.

    I already have a shiny Pichu somehow. Any other shiny I have I was trying for (chain-fishing for a shiny Feebas and Magikarp; Masuda method for a shiny Togepi), but apparently the first time I bred to get a Pichu it came out shiny. I didn't even realize it was shiny until like a month later.

    There's a Shiny Rayquaza event happening now through the September 14 via mystery gift. Don't know if it's international but I just got mine so it's a thing in the US. It comes with ORAS-exclusive moves so you probably can't get it if you have X/Y only.
