On a cheerier note, one of the projects I've been working on has revived my interest in political science. After my dissertation I was just burned out on the whole subject, but now I'm dusting off old projects I've been letting collect dust. It really would be a shame if I didn't get any publications out of all the work I did on my dissertation.
And my novel is going pretty well too, so that's another good thing. I'm halfway through the fourth chapter already.
I'll write something about politics tomorrow. Maybe.
You're at a U? I thought you were working for some candidate person. What happened to him/her, anyway?By Sisyphus, at 10:23 PM
Oh, the campaigning gig was just volunteer work. My candidate won on election night - I thought I posted about it, but maybe I forgot in all the excitement.By Arbitrista, at 8:36 AM
Yes, I do work at a University Research Center. We get federal and state funding, which is one of the reasons I keep the blog anonymous. So yes, I'm a real live academic. I just don't have to grade anything or mess with those pesky undergrads.
