Because there are at least four of you people who give something akin to a "crap" about me and my job search, here is the latest information for your enjoyment...

UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA, Student Development Specialist -- phone interview held on 4/24. I should hear back this week if they'd like to invite me for a campus interview.
APPALACHIAN STATE UNIVERSITY, Residence Education Instructor/Area Coordinator -- phone interview held 4/21. Again, I should hear back this week if they'd like to invite me for a campus interview.
MIAMI UNIVERSITY (Ohio), Coordinator of Residence Life -- phone interview held 4/sometime (a coffee spill blurs the date). I have heard nothing from them since the beginning of this month.
MERCER UNIVERSITY -- they've called everyone BUT me, it seems...and I was told the position was on "hold,"whatever the hell that means
EMORY UNIVERSITY -- no communication from them yet, but my resume did only get sent off early last week.
GEORGIA TECH -- no communication from them yet, although their website shows the search for the position continues. I'm 99% sure I can write this one off.

This is going to be one of the most difficult things I have ever typed. Please bear with me.

Many of you have been with me through some very difficult patches of my life. Many of you have become closer than family to me, and your love and support these past three years has been something that I could not have lived without. In many ways, I owe you all my life, both personally and professionally. Heartache, headaches, and gut-punches...we've been there for each other, and we've grown to be more than co-workers. We've become friends.

We've laughed, we've cried, we've yelled, we've been through some of the most random and bizarre moments (i.e.: the flooding of New South).

Therefore -- with shaking hands and as all the blood drains from my fingers due to my nerves being shot -- it is with nothing shy of remorse that I announce that next year...you'll be dancing without me. I am leaving Millsaps, effective May 11, 2004. I'm sticking around to help you all in the closing of the halls, but in the fall, the College will be Sonny-less.

I can't give more information that this right now, and even though I know that some of you will be suffering through bouts of depression, anger, and some of you little pookas will be throwing a celebration, I ask please -- give me a few moments (translation: days) of quiet before the questions arise.

It's been an honor.


And dammit, now I'm crying.

Ten years ago.

Ten.

Kurt Cobain died ten years ago. Say what you will about the man's personal life (which you have no right to judge, by the way), but his music and his life touched and gave a voice to a generation. Mine.

I'm still saddened by the loss of his life.

Here's to his daughter -- may she get all the happiness she's deserved, especially after the loss of her father and the [BLEEP]ed up mess that her mother is.
