Another milestone passed

Sunday nights and Wednesdays (all day) are designated "me time." This semester just doesn't seem very conducive to getting much of anything done. However, I think I passed a major PhD milestone this week--I sent in my first job application! I have vowed to apply for a few jobs this year, even if it seems early, just to get the experience and see what happens. Right now, I'm in fear of being hopelessly unemployed and overqualified to work retail. We'll see.

I just got back from a great conference--one of the best I've attended, in my opinion. The American Evaluation Association held its annual conference along with the Canadian Evaluation Society in Toronto, Ontario, and I was even lucky enough to present! I've presented at several conferences, international and regional, and I have to say that this crowd was much more academic than I've experienced in awhile. They asked some good, tough questions and got me thinking in new ways. Success, I'd say.

In addition, I got to meet some big name evaluators/researchers. I think my favorite was meeting David Fetterman, not only because I really do like his work, and I really didn't sound like a complete and bumbling idiot when I was talking to him, but later on, several days later into the conference, he saw me again, and his eyes met mine, and he smiled and nodded in recognition. Ah, academic hero worship! I may not be somebody yet, but David Fetterman knows me. For someone as much into ethnography as I am, that's pretty cool.

Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he just bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! "By nature, men are nearly alike by practice, they get to be wide apart." by Confucius.

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
