So I've fallen off the blogging wagon pretty thoroughly. But this is blog-worthy: I was informed by the Dean of Arts and Sciences that I will be recommend for tenure and promotion to associate professor. It feels good — for lots of reasons — but at the same time is a bit anti-climactic. The dean came by my office to give me the news, there was a little hallway jubilation with some collected colleagues, and then I made myself another cup of tea and finished up editing a chapter. (Of course, I also celebrated at the tavern that evening!)
