Well, as usual, I was totally wrapped up in
a stupid bloody article something being a productive academic and forgot that Monday was the FIFTH anniversary of this blog and my blogging. And I missed the stat counter rolling the 50,000 mark, too! I put stat counter up about three years ago, so I have no idea what the real count is. So … damn I’m feeling like an old blogger. Thanks to all of you who have been here since the beginning-ish, and to everybody who’s come to hang around since.
I’ve just remembered that I promised Kelly in Kansas that I’d write some reflections on the transition from job-seeker to regular employed academic. And I’ve still not posted anything about the trip. So I’ll work on those between getting through the huge pile of stuff I’m still working on. I can tell you one thing, though. Actually having a job is way harder than looking for one, in terms of workload and emotional investment, but the stress levels aren’t nearly as bad and it’s a much better kind of stress. YMMV.
