That was a day. Our official part of the job search process is over, and I am happy with our first choice, whom I hope takes our job. But I always leave these kinds of things feeling wrung out and uncertain. Evaluating people for a job is never like buying a new couch. There’s a lot of hopes and dreams dashed in there, in the selection process. You know, like doing art.
Now that that’s over, and so many other things are over, it’s time to turn my eye toward Wiscon. I have a panel to prep, and a reading to sort out. The panel is on culturally specific language use in literature. Awesome. I have to decide whether to read part of Cookies, A Lasting Storm, or The Ground is Full of Teeth. This minute, Teeth is winning.
So, this is a fly by to let you know I’m alive this week. Weighing in tonight. Nails tonight. Catrina tonight. Ready for vacation to begin, but still have 3 weeks to go.
