Well, as bad as things seem, I’m looking on the bright side.  I am currently on the short list for:

  • A one-year VAP position that would be a decent job and a good springboard to other opportunities
  • A non-academic position at an Ivy League school that would also open doors for me
  • An international dissertation award granted by a culinary psychology organization (just found out on Wednesday)


All in all, I have a lot to be thankful for.  My future is still somewhat uncertain, but at least I have potential.
