school blogging.

So much time has passed by, so much has happened. Living with the New Cohabitant has influenced us and our lives. That sounds like an overused cliché, but it is true. To some extend it changes priorities and grounds one – but more in the way that these priorities have been there, latent, covered, and now become unearthed.

I have been wondering what to do career wise, having this unfinished thesis, an ended contract at the university. Six years and you are out and cannot be hired for the same position anymore. The idea is that you finish your thesis and move on to the next step. But I am not sure right now if I want to become a professor anymore. I have been in academia for a long time that I know about the not-so-nice sides as well, not only the shiny ones.

I am putting the thesis on ice for a while – especially as I will start to become a fully certified teacher in the beginning of next year. So to some extend the post title “back to school” is true as well.

I am looking forward to it although it will be lots and lots of work. As a friend of mine once said “The Referendariat swallows you up and spits you out after two years.”

We shall see.
