I spent the day looking for online adjunct positions.  I sent off several CVs, most of them blind.  I did everything I could to sound enthusiastic but not desperate.  Not sure I succeeded though.

I reallyreallyreally want to find a job that is relevant to my NEW life.  Otherwise I have to get a job in my OLD life and I SO don’t want to do that anymore.  I’m bored with it, but more importantly I find that as long as I am going back and forth between the two careers I have a hard time really immersing myself into my scholarly pursuits.  I know that teaching intro statistics somewhere isn’t going to help me write my dissertation, but it WILL help me stay in a more academic frame of mind and start to FEEL like I’ve made the transition.
