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.

    Waiting will always be with us. The trick is to keep living while you wait.

    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. . . .
