Hello my friends,

It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for a life update!

My dissertation is finished at long last!  I defended in December and did all the rounds of revisions.  Waiting on my Ph.D. diploma in the mail.

My application for tenure has gone up the chain and been approved at all levels, so I will be a tenured professor starting in the fall semester.

I’m currently teaching two summer classes, which will be done at the end of June.

As I write this, I’m taking a break from writing my first book.  I signed a contract with a publisher back in November, and the manuscript is due in about 10 days, so I’m soldiering away on that.

I haven’t had a chance to take a vacation yet, but am hoping to do so in July!

Please keep in touch and let me know how your summer is going!
