Life in The Slow Lane

2 03 2010


There are lots of slow things in my life right now; the decision making process by search committees, the writing of my dissertation, and my research. However, some things are going by at warp speed; time until my dissertation is due, my child growing up, and my life outside of academia. 

I knew that the search process in academia was slow, but I had no idea just how slow until I actually became the one waiting on the responses. I know that I may be a little (OK a lot) impatient, but it is just so nerve racking waiting to hear back from a university about the status of your application.  However, I can’t complain because I am about to have my 2nd phone interview, and I could potentially hear back from the 1st phone interview this week!
