Wasn't that a song in the 80's?
Anyway, my blogroll is back up and functioning--I've checked all the links and been out a reading....all of us have been a bit slower than usual over the holidays. Ho Hum.....
Finally made it to my office today after a sleep in and a bit of retail therapy. I bought a new suit for the upcoming interviews. Not that I really needed another, I just like having several options--and I have been in a pants frame of mind of late and I want comfort! It will be hard enough for me to be "on point" for 2 days straight with strangers. I'm one who likes to sit back and observe a bit, however, I'm sure this isn't a good strategy nor would even be possible on a job interview. So, I'm practicing my smile and focusing on me (with the purchase of comfortable clothing) and trying to get over the idea of having to sell myself to get a job. And this gives me the excuse to go out this weekend and buy a new pair of shoes to go with the new suit. I love shoes!
In other news, I have 2 syllabi ready to roll and am about halfway done with the last one. It's a new class for me so I'm keeping it 'roomy' so I can stretch and be flexible a bit. It's all doc students in the class so hopefully they will be able to deal with that.
My book chapter sort of looks like a chapter--with sections and everything-- however, I still hate it and hate writing it, and just wish it were over. Why do I let myself be talked into things like this?---oh yeah, I'm ABD looking for a job and I'm adding to my Vita. Geez...... might as well paste it on my forehead.
Speaking of jobs (again)--need to organize and practice that job talk.
