Well, yesterday I applied for a faculty position at Butler University.  I know we are supposed to pray for God's will in everything, but...I REALLY WANT THIS JOB!  That being said, please do pray for God's will in this.  There are a lot of positives about it, but there are also some challenges.  Since we moved here 4.5 years ago I have been mainly a work-at-home dad and homeschooling the kids.  If I get this position, of course all of that goes away and we have to start thinking about all the changes.  My wife will be taking over as chair of her department in the fall, so that adds another wrinkle.  Plus, Butler is about an hour drive each way, so there's that also.

Sorry, I haven't slept well the past few nights, so I don't know if this makes sense or not.  I'm happy to give you more information when my brain is less fuzzy.

Praying for you. I know job searching is tough (been looking since February of 2012) and I know it can change your whole life. I'll be praying for you.

I take it you're applying for the Assistant Professor of Musicology position.  It looks like a great position.  Will definitely be praying that everything works as it should.

Yep.  I'd love to be able to get on here at Anderson, but A) they just hired a musicologist the year before we came and 2) honestly, Butler pays a bit better.

Just think that the one-hour drive will give you more time to listen to albums you need to review for Untombed Very Happy

Hey, it wouldn't be the first time.  Last summer I had to make two solo trips to the other side of Indy and I took a portable recorder with me and made my notes for the Sardis and Promise Land reviews while listening on the road.

Seriously, that is why the thought of the commute doesn't bother me.  I've got 4G all the way down and a couple hundred-thousand songs loaded to Amazon Music.  I'm good for road trips.
