Month o' crazy almost done
Hey y'all... sorry not to have posted much lately. (Thanks, Megan, for holding the fort!) Three conferences down, and just one to go -- this Saturday's one-day conference in New Jersey. In addition to conferencing, I've been assembling my application for the Newcombe fellowship (about which I posted earlier) and assembling my dossier for a few academic jobs. No, not the Concordia one, but a few others that explicitly say things like "PhD near completion". I can do "near" completion. It's been pretty hectic, all in all. (that, plus a whole bunch of Graduate Student Association stuff, but I won't get into that) oh yeah, and teaching. Got midterm grades in and so forth, but already I have a new stack of journal entries on Descartes to read and grade.
I am not going to tell you where I'm appyling to jobs, since I doubt I'll even hear back from any of them. If I get any interviews, I'll let you know. The academic hiring process is pretty lengthy -- initial deadlines in November, hearing back from places in time for interviews at the Eastern APA meeting Dec 29-30, possibly campus interviews in March or April. whew!
ok, must go teach.
