My Better-Than-Royal Life

I may not yet have a Real Job™, but right now, there are aspects of my life that make it a better one than many. Here is something for which I am personally very thankful today:

It is 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Chicago (32 Celsius) and humid. Unlike the Duchess of Cambridge, I am not nine months pregnant.

Life has its upsides, yes it does.

It's the little things that keep you going in life.

Wow! Very true. How is the job market for your field? I imagine it is pretty tight. Every place where I know people working there, they tell me they are in a hiring freeze (and that is true of the two places where I adjunct too).

The job market in ethnomusicology has always been kind of tight, but it's clearing up a bit from the recession. This is general good news in that the hiring freezes are thawing, so there are more jobs available. Unfortunately, they're going first to people who got their Ph.Ds two and three years ago. Essentially, I'm now at the back of the line, slowly shuffling forward. But hope springs eternal, even if it's not always as bouncy as other times . . .
