… to blog you like a hu… No, I just can’t do it.
In any case: thus begins another chapter in the never ending struggle to maintain a daily posting routine. Today’s post will be shorter than expected, however, since I have to rush to a meeting soon. A colleague and I are trying to get a collected edition out and need to meet about several annoying topics (publisher bureaucracy, babysitting people who are turning in their essays late, etc.). I am also perpetually searching the job list for new postings, hoping for jobs that are not in the middle of nowhere. The countdown to job market has officially begun, thus, and I will have to begin sending out applications in about two weeks. Before that happens I still have to revise/polish my job materials and I would really like to get the article I have been working on out there as well as revise the second part of my dissertation. Hmmm… looks like there is not going to be a lot of sleep in the future. But I have to say: that whole job market thing is rather exciting–in a psychologically completely devastating way, but still. I wonder where (city, state, country, continent) I will end up.
Oh, and just to give you and idea of the state of my life at the moment: I woke up this morning and saw that I apparently stuck a post-it note to my laptop before falling asleep that read, thrice underlined: “Get fucking organized!!!”
I will go shopping for some serious office supplies today and devise a spectacular system of organization–I will post about that tomorrow.
