The end is near: Written by earwormopera I am going to need a very large cup of coffee and some Schumann to regain my composure.

Was wondering what the hell she could have to do with composure lol (have zero firsthand experience of US academe & know only what I hear from job-searching friends, but what she writes does sounds damning). It was quite mild when you were in Wien I think? We had snow a few weeks back & it makes what you’ve got there look very nichts. LikeLike Reply The job market in the US is awful – I count myself extremely lucky to have a tenure track job. A friend of mine who is a great deal smarter than I am has just recently decided to leave the field after 6 years of adjunct ing and VAPs. It was pretty mild when I was in Wien – about 0C and foggy. Around here (Deep South) even an inch of snow is pretty unusual. LikeLike Reply Leave a comment Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
