Hit or Miss

What’s Matt been doing during his (too-long) break from work?

  1. Shopping ’till I drop with the mom. Unfortunately, I’ve found little I’ve wanted to buy.

    What’s the story with Old Navy and their now miniscule selection of pocket-t’s and boxers? Since when do all the clothes in the stores I frequent suck? Why are all the 32″ waist pants too tight and all the size-medium shirts too big?

  2. Fuming over President-Elect Bush’s cabinet appointments.

    Where’s the bi-partisan spirit that was promised? Ashcroft being nominated for Attorney General is particulary worrisome (I’ll let the real-Missourian Reese explain why).

  3. Buring little dots into my corneas playing Snood around the clock. I can’t get past level 46.
  4. Vacilating over whether I should turn in my resignation and start looking for a new job for the next academic year or not.

    Now that I’ve left rural Kirksville for a span of time (and spent it in rural Soddy-Daisy, TN), I’m feeling more apt to just stay put for another year and enjoy the nice apartment that comes with my job. I can’t be sure that another hall director position at another school wouldn’t drive me crazy as well.

Did the job as the director of the res hall libraries come open at IU? You had mentioned that it was your “dream job”, and it seems like a perfect position for your mix of experience/education. Somehow your journal entries over the past academic year don’t seem like someone who is thrilled with their current job. Good luck with your decision!
