In the last couple of months, Hubs has been under a gigantic mound of stress finishing and defending his dissertation all while attempting to get hired at a university and getting his ass rejected time and time again (50 resumes sent, one call back, no jobs. Horse shit.)
Just when he thought that he’d be eating bon bons and watching internet porn all day for this fall semester (if only we all could be so lucky), one of his former profs put him in touch with the kindly people at UC Santa Barbara. They had a visiting professor position open…and they just “happened” to think that Hubs would be perfect for the gig!
Hubs will be commuting to Santa Barbara two days a week in the fall AND spring quarters and PROFESSORING his ass off–two classes per quarter. I’m so damn proud of him. Plus it will give me an excuse to drive up the coast and visit this sinfully beautiful campus on a regular basis.
I mean seriously. Do people actually learn here, or do they just play in the ocean and drink mai tais?
