It's all coming together...
I just checked the American Academy of Religion website, and the 2007 AAR annual meeting is in San Diego. This is the conference that I absolute have to attend, because I'll be in the final year of my PhD and on the job market - a lot of interviews are scheduled at this conference.
Do you know what's near San Diego? Arizona! Arizona is near San Diego! It's like the stars are aligning to find me the perfect job.
Okay, okay... maybe I'm just all hopped up on the painkillers. Maybe the universe isn't working on some master plan to find me a job in Arizona. But STILL. Isn't it exciting? The location of the conference means there's more likelihood that small colleges and universities from the Southwest will hold their interviews there. It is so totally a fabulous turn of events. I've really got to make sure I'm ABD by November 2007.
Imagine: me, in Arizona, with cacti in my front yard, and stars overhead. Heck, I'd even take New Mexico if it came down to it.
"When the mooooooooon
Is in the seventh houuuuuuse
Aligns wiiiith Maaars
Will guide the plaaanets
Will steer the stars!"
