One of my letter writers tacked this onto the end of an e-mail. For some context, I am applying for jobs right now in anticipation of graduating next year (the first app is due tomorrow) and I am as stressed as I have ever been in my entire life. Yes, job season for academia begins a full year before the positions actually start. With some elbow grease I might be able to change this blog’s status to assistant professor. I have never been under this much pressure and the workload has never been this high. I am barely staying afloat. Graduate school is already thankless, but I woke up to a wonderful message this morning from fulltimeillin and now a professor I respect very highly in my department is throwing this out in his e-mails? HOW DO NOT CRY.
Anyways, back to preparing tomorrow’s lecture. I will be scarce on this blog until the season ends in a month or so.
