Wa-hoo!!

I got the full-time faculty position I interviewed for 3 weeks ago!! Yeah, I rock!

I got the call last night, and I can't tell you how happy I am about it. I was on the phone half the night making calls to family and friends. It had been such a long wait between interview and notification, so I was starting to feel pretty dejected about it, so when the dean called me at home yesterday evening, I was surprised, relieved, and excited all at once.

The full-time status doesn't go into effect until the fall semester, so I won't be enjoying the monetary benefits for a few more months, but this is a huge validation of the work I've been doing for years. You can be sure that I will be having some green beer in celebration this weekend!
