What to Do
Things in the personal realm are getting better, but I have to decide if I will go back to chasing the tenure track dream again.
My article got rejected. Worked hard on it too. No comments from the readers, just a vague "we don't think it will fit well in our publication" kind of "no." My mentor thought it would be a good fit; oh well.
I'm figuring out what to do to fill the hours between waking up and going to sleep. My research is rather hindered by the lack of access to a good library.
My old job got in touch with me; one of my old colleagues heard about my employment situation and Big Boss reached out and said I might be able to go back to my old position. I would have to give up on my relationship. I hate how my two options are either being single or being an academic. I thought this position here teaching Hamsters and Gerbils 101 would be the perfect alignment of relationship and work. I didn't count on getting let go.
I didn't count on scrambling for academic work mid-year.
What to do to fill the hours between waking and sleeping. What to do.
