So glad for the weekend here. I like the work I do during the other days of the week, but my department has got to have more dysfunctionality-per-employee than any other on campus, if not in the whole state university system.

I'm not claiming to be the only sane one there (that goes without saying!). And like a bad relationship, sometimes it can take a while before you realize what you've gotten yourself into.

The job does have its perks, however. For example, at the conference I recently attended, I met with a couple of colleagues from across the pond who are interested in starting a program like the one I direct. I'm daring to hope that this means an employer-financed trip to Scotland!

What's your reason for going to work every day?
