If I look a bit ragged, or seem distracted, you know why.
I have been manically flailing around the past year to find something to replace, at least in part, teaching. Every month I apply for grants, try to get exhibitions of my work, work on other writing projects, paint, do occasional commercial jobs, learn new software, apply to teach at new schools, look into business opportunities, shoot teaching videos, make artworld contacts, attend openings and museums… in addition to prepping six courses and taking care of my kids.
It really burns me when my colleagues who are tenured complain. I know insecurity is the buzzword of the day, but come on.
