Radical life change June 22, 2006

Posted by merp in Life.

Ok, could be more extreme. We’re not moving. I’ve lived in the same town (non-continuously) for 5 years now. We’re not breaking up, getting married, or having a baby. No one has died, no one is ill.

(Perspective achieved.)

But I do now have a full-time job, after 5 years on fellowship (7, actually, but broken up by a valuable year working in Chicago). And I’m still working on my dissertation. The structure of my time is now radically, radically different.

I think you can see the implications. Less sleep, less random surfing of the Internet, less Buffy, less knitting, and – yes – less blogging.

On the plus-side, I get to be a contributing member of society again! I’m the new Program Director for the Asian Educational Media Service at the U of I. I’m really happy about it – it’s exactly the right sort of job for me at this point. ‘Nuff said about that – this is not a professional blog!

But if I seem to be checking in less here, well that’s why.

Congratulations on the new job! It sounds like it’s really cool. We, your loyal readers, will, I’m sure, learn to live with more infrequent posts from you.
