Hello hello hello! How is everyone doing here? I miss all of you!

I have been absent for a long time but I have a good reason:) In the meantime, I defended and submitted my dissertation, so now I am a Dr (not a medical one; an academic doctor). I also moved and had a bunch of job applications to make. There were too many things going on, so I could not write here.

This week, I will not write about any topic, because I want to check in with everyone. I will resume regular writing next week onward. Tell me what you have been up to! How are you feeling? What happened in the past few months?

  1. It’s good to hear from you, Dr. Erbasi. Congratulations – I admit to feeling a smidge of jealous inspiration (mental note: make plans for future post-grad work). I can’t wait to read future updates. As for me and my life, chaos. On the bright side, my current coping method/way of dealing with my broken hippocampus results in headway on lots of home projects.

  2. Congrats, Betul! What an accomplishment.
    I too, have been taking a break from the site. I gave birth to another child, in January: a beautiful baby girl. Like my son, she was premature, which was very stressful. But I’m happy to report that she’s healthy. Anyway, it’s great to hear from you, my friend. Be well!

      1. Yes, we have been careful and lucky. Thanks for asking. What are your next plans? Has covid generated freezing hires or are people retiring? Hope you will stop by to see the March poetry challenge poems people write on light and darkness. My best to you for a wonderful career!

      2. I am looking for a job but a lot of places are hiring right now. So it is actually a good time for me to look for a job. Fingers crossed!

        I am starting to write after such a long break so I am not sure if I can participate in a challenge yet. But I can try!

      3. Glad to hear that you’ve found job openings. Hope you find a wonderful community with inspiring scholars. In two weeks time you can decide if you’ll have time for an April poem. I’ll announce the theme and form in about a week.

  3. Congratulations and I have been busy with my dental implants and medical issues hence delayed to posts like before but trying to speed up to stay afloat.
