Well, it seems my summer is being eaten up with teaching. I love teaching, and I've been very happy to get experience with a new class and new students (early start community college). But, a new prep sure does take a lot of time!!
Luckily, a huge motivator for also working more on my prospectus/research/job apps came through yesterday: a job prospect. It's the first job call to come up that really seems to fit me. First, it is in an area of the US that I'd be willing and happy to live. Second, they are looking for someone who will research in the area of interpersonal. And third, the ideal candidate will be willing and well suited to teach a methods course, covering both qualitative and quantitative methods!! Sounds like a pretty great job. It is definitely time to start putting together job packets and progressing more aggressively on the dissertation. Who knew that balancing these tasks would be so tough? Ok- I knew...I was just in denial.
