Hi. I passed my mid-tenure review. If you were wondering what happened to me, that's what happened to me. I got a job, a life, and now they pay me to write. The paid writing has to take precedence over the non-paid writing.
but I'm here. Not always happy with this life, but it's the life I've chosen, and I'm trying to be positive about it. I have three more years before tenure and then I can start to think about other things. It seems like for my own sanity and for my marriage, I need to follow through with this, at least until tenure. because dropping out of this world would be bad, especially before my student loans are paid off, right? right?
