I had a moment of weakness this week and was sucked backed in to "going on the market" for a role that I don't think I have a snowflake's chance in hell of getting.
I am such a fool.
I spent an afternoon writing it; an evening tweaking it, collecting referees and paperwork; and an early morning before work frantically compiling my documentation and triple-checking everything before submitting it.
And let's not forget all those hours I have spent fantasizing about my new academic life.
<insert sound of my slapping my own forehead>
Here begins another 6 weeks of wondering if I will get the job and tossing and turning at night.
I must learn to remind myself every single day that I have a job. I do not need another one.
