here we go...

so...i found out on thursday (i should not check my email in class, even if the students were working on their own to fill out the review for the exam...) that a friend of mine had died.  the husband-wife team (Rick and Lori) of my favorite quilt store, Rick died...i am so sad for lori and for the family...this was a surprise - she sent an email around 3 a.m. saying they are at the hospital and then second one at around 9 a.m. saying that he had died.  i am sad.  he was not old enough (is anyone old enough?)...he was in his 50s! tomorrow is the visitation...we are heading up to wilson, nc to see lori and be sad.  i wish there was something we could do to help her...suggestions welcome. 

on other points - i figured out that i have applied to at least 100 different places in the last year...i also figured out that one place i interviewed (but did not get offered the position) hired someone from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (read: TONS of experience and at an AWESOME school!) - i can't believe that i was in competition with someone with that kind of back ground...so i guess that there is something to that - i have the power, but i also have a lot of competition...

sigh.

peace
