Busy Non-Blogging Tenure Application Bee

T minus 22 days until my tenure and promotion application must be submitted.

Fark! Really? Already it's that time in my academic career?

There are days when I think that putting the tenure and promotion application together is taking more time and effort than all of the combined time and effort put into the years upon years that got me to this point.

I have been preparing my application for the past two months (with the pressure picking up exponentially over the last month).

For the past two months I have alternated between:
  • being excited,
  • sticking my tongue out at the computer screen at random intervals and
  • sighing very heavily.
Lather, rinse and repeat.

These past two months will be known from this point forward as The Great & Mighty Summer of '08 That Flashed Before My Eyes ... and will either make me or break me as an academic.
