Here are some things happening in my life:
- Tonight at 9pm I take my LAST birth control pill! (well, until April when I’ll probably have to take them again to regulate my cycle before the FET. But, whatever. Today I think only of my impending freedom!)
- I made this alteration to my desk to make it into a standing desk. You can find it here if you too are interested! I am hoping it will significantly help with my sciatic pain and force me to take breaks instead of sitting and staring at a screen for 8 or 10 or 12 hours at a time.
- I did not get the job in Oregon. I had my (fucking difficult!) 15 minute interview last Wednesday and learned that they had received 95 applications, and were doing 25 of these short phone interviews, with the goal of selecting 10 candidates for a second round interview. On Friday evening, I got an e-mail letting me know I wasn’t one of the 10 selected to move on. Rejection stings no matter what, but ultimately, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. La has a bunch of apps out for tenure track positions and really, its her turn to work at a job where she is respected and appreciated and paid well. Plus, I am happy here – at my job, with my work, in my life – and so I don’t know that this job (while awesome) was the one worth dropping all of that for . . .
- I start stims on Saturday . . .my mother-in-law will be staying at our house this weekend, as will nephew Liam. So, it’ll be a house full of shot supporting fun!
