A little update

A little update

Well, I’ve officially accepted the position. I’m really happy. I’ve received welcome letters from future colleagues … wow! And I’m feeling really chuffed because I got a call on Saturday with an invitation for a campus interview and an e-mail a few minutes ago asking if I were interested in a phone interview. I know I’ve made the right decision, too, because when I turned down the interviews, there was no “but what if …” feeling.

But now that I don’t have to look for a job, I really need to get working. So if I keep a relatively low profile for the next little while, it’s because I’m trying to write. I’ve set myself a draft date for the end of March — that’ll be interesting — so I have April to revise. Yipes!

Really looking for someone to hold the next Ancient/Medieval Carnivalesque — in March! Please, please, please, does someone want to do it? Remember, Carnivalesque is often interdisciplinary, so feel free to step in!

    I’ve let them know. They aren’t ecstatic, and the division secretary is very cranky, but no one blames me. Basically, they know it’s down to their own slow processes and a very slow HR department (it took them 3 weeks to get a not very sizeable pool of apps together). Mostly, everyone has been very nice and seem to feel like I do — really happy for me, and irritated at the situation. The more I think about it, though, the more I’m sure that I’d have taken this job over my present one anyway. Not that I wouldn’t have been happy here, but I really would have become too complacent. Now I know I’ll have to scramble to stay on my game.
