Waiting

August 9, 2008

There are some days when I believe that the eschaton will arrive before I get all the work off my desk; but today I wonder whether I’ll receive responses before the appearance of Godot.

I have a book review in to the editors at RBL, another book I’m waiting to hear back if they’ll let me review, a chapter in to my adviser, and a possible full-time gig that I’m waiting to see if I can even apply for (since I’m only ABD).

Hurry up and wait — seems to be the modern montra of the academy.

    I’m waiting on stuff, too. And recently two things I was waiting on came back negative. The trick there is to take it in stride. . . .
