... they pull you back in! So after the crushing defeats in regards to San Diego and Spokane schools (I may blog a little about what happened in both, though I may not), I resolved to go to Kent State, take some philosophy courses to earn a B.A. in Philosophy, get a nice little job on campus (maybe astronomy or writing tutor) leapfrogging into a Master's Program and then on to the Doctorate to achieve total victory in the Philosophy of Physics. It wasn't ideal, but was a workable plan and it moved me forward.
Just when I had really come to terms with all of that and thinking, "Yeah! This is going to work!" I get a rather frantic call from another school! They need someone... YESTERDAY. It sounds like they had someone in mind and got left in the lurch so they need a new physics teacher quick. So tomorrow they are flying me down to Miami, will put me up in a hotel, show me around, interview me, and fly me home.
