Hello, everyone. Maybe you were fortunate enough to land a wonderful job this year, possibly even early on in the process. If so, congratulations! This thread is not for you. (Plus, why are you still on this site anyways?)
The rest of us are all probably doing a fairly decent job keeping ourselves together, whether we have a job for next year or not - we're still applying, writing, teaching, waiting, and hoping. It might be tough to stay optimistic, but for the most part, we do it.
Every once in a while, we might want to take a quick moment and give in to those distractions. By "give in," I mean "absolutely flip the #%@ out." I'll go first!
IT'S THE BEGINNING OF MARCH, and all I've had so far is ONE STINKIN PHONE INTERVIEW
DO MY APPLICATION MATERIALS GIVE OFF B.O. OR SOMETHING
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD YOU NEED A PH.D. TO BE A LAB MANAGER THESE DAYS
AND THE ONLY NEW JOB POSTS ARE FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN SOUTHEAST NEBRASKA
NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT
I DON'T HAVE A JOB AND MY WIFE IS PREGNANT AND WE'RE GOING TO END UP LIVING IN A REFRIGERATOR BOX DOWN BY THE RIVER
but hey at least i got some sweet results from my last set of analyses
Much better! Back to work for me.
