JobWatch: No news is bad news...

OK- I know it's not over yet, but I am feeling discouraged today. I've been telling myself that if I don't hear this week, then I'm likely out of the running. This is very depressing. I really felt like things went well, so it will be disappointing if neither place calls me- especially since my entire department knows that I interviewed (oh- didn't I tell you?- at the faculty meeting during my absence a few weeks back, my dept. chair announced to the entire department that I was out of town on job interviews- lovely, isn't it? I'm so glad that I bothered to tell him). At this point, I feel like it's an embarrassment if I don't get an offer. People keep asking- "have you heard anything yet?" It's as annoying as being single and having your mom ask "are you dating anyone?"

I've had a migraine all day, too. It's the first one I've had in months (I think the last one was last summer). I took an Imitrex right before my big lecture class, when I realized that Ibuprofen was having no effect. I hate teaching in that condition- I feel so spacey. I used to think it was the meds, but I actually think it's the migraine itself. I'm just in sort of a migraine haze now. I'm more clear-headed than I was, but still not myself. Anyway- I'm just in a lowly state today... thought I would share. sigh

It's the migraine that causes the haziness. I've been getting them since I was 12, and the best remedy/preventative I've found so far is accupuncture. Imitrex is nice too, though.
