Welcome to my academic blog.

In the past twelve months, my two-year divorce and custody battle wrapped up, I moved across country to start a new tenure-track position, I got engaged to a man I have known for almost twenty years, and I paid off all of my credit card debt.

I need a nap.

On a hammock in the Virgin Islands. During a salary-paid semester's sabbatical, preferably.

As that is unlikely to happen, I have TiVo, brownie mix, cheap beer, my iPod, coloring books, blogging, and Goffman. This is my academic blog. I have decided to keep a bit more "audience segregation" in place in the bloggosphere. We'll see how that goes.

Congratulations on wrapping all of that up! I paid off my debt and got divorced last year, too... no custody battle, though, and I hope to start a new tenure track job elsewhere in the future, too. Best wishes to you.

Hey Bright Star! I'll keep an eye on your site also, would love to see how things work out for you. And here's hoping that 2007 turns out to be a little less fraught than 2006, no?

definitely... best wishes to the both of us!
