No word yet on the grad program here.
On the plus side, there appear to be some decent job prospects in Chicago, at De Paul and UIC. There's also a good one in Foothill/Los Altos in California. This weekend I draft a cover letter and some other materials; Monday I show it to Raoul (my kind supervisor who volunteered to review it for me), by Friday I want to send them out. A day or two earlier, if possible...I leave Friday for my whirlwind East Coast tour: Baltimore (4 days), New York (2 days), Connecticut (1 day), Boston, (1.5 days), Baltimore and then home again on the 19th. Some of those cities I'm booked breakfast, lunch and dinner...so it won't be the most restful vacation, but it'll be lovely seeing Alex, Elissa, Bryan, Tasos, Shmuel, Naomi, Manny, my parents, Mirna, Todd, Debby, Cecilia, David and the other Alex again. :-)
Okay, off to grade a few revision papers. Kirsten arrives this afternoon and is staying through Monday, which will be very nice. (College roommate, in case you forgot. Having a rough time romantically-speaking, so I think there's be some tissue-sessions. Any recommendations for movies to watch with someone who absolutely doesn't want to see anything even remotely romantic?)
