I hope that the people who post here about traumatic experiences realize that their posts will appear in Vitae.

I would rock that outfit.

Not to brag, but I would.


Me too. It might be snug in the shoulders, but I definitely have the legs for it.

If it came in black I'd get one for my wife.

When I think back to my first semester at this university. I had one class that was absolutely amazing. You could feel the HIGH energy of the students and how motivated and positive they were. I remember coming out of classes electrified and energized. Ironically, at least 35% of that class graduated at the end of the year and of the freshmen, 25% TRANSFERRED to other schools. Some of the transferring students have said if a student is actually engaged or wants to learn they can't stand it and transfer somewhere else...  I have not had a class that was so "on top of it" since then. The rest come in either disengaged or they are  motivated but too behind to do college level work. Needless to say I've had to dumb down my syllabus and tests, just from my first semester at this school, and that was only 4 years ago. The quality of students has deteriorated quite rapidly.

It's hard for me to fathom someone applying to a SLAC with no teaching experience.

What do they think the enterprise is all about?

Hey, motherf***er. Next time you decide to post on RMP that the professor is a "failure as a teacher and a human being" who is smug, superior, and should be avoided "like ebola" and fired, why don't you ask yourself how you might have contributed to the failing grade on the work you submitted in your graduate course? You know: the work that met none of the criteria outlined in the assignment guidelines and demonstrated that you don't understand how to carry out the most rudimentary elements of research or even recognize what constitutes scholarly work in this field?

You are sooooo demanding.

My vent: why are there no schools for sky lantern manufacturing in the U.S.?  Is it because all manufacturing, even of sky lanterns, has moved overseas?  How are we underemployed Ph.Ds to gain a noble trade such as this?

I really did not expect to end up on this thread. But my mother, who recently turned 79, found a lump in her breast a few weeks ago. She just got her results; it is stage 1, slow-moving, caught early, and her doctor is very optimistic. She has a lumpectomy scheduled for December. When I heard her voice on my answering machine with the news, I burst into tears. Suddenly I understand why the words are so terrifying; they portend, potentially, such an imminent threat to life. She feels strong and confident, and so do I. But it's still scary. When I was younger, we had many years of estrangement. Now she is one of the most important people in my life. When I had open-heart surgery a few years ago, she came to Canada to be with me. It felt weird, at my age, to have my mother "take care of me," but it was such a relief to have her here. I really, really don't want to lose her. I'm so grateful to everyone here for creating this space.
