A Nerd’s Big Day

I found out today that an article I wrote for a peer-reviewed academic journal has been accepted for publications with no revisions. My reader comments were really positive and the journal with my name and article in should come out this spring.

This is pretty exciting if you are a nerd.

Which I am.

This is the first time I’ve submitted an article and I can’t help myself, I got a little buzz of excitement when I got the email from the journal editor. The little buzz made me think about something that I ponder from time to time: more school.

I have my M.A. and I kind of, sort of, some days think I should probably get my doctorate. I think it would help get the kinds of jobs I might want to get in the future. I think I’d actually be really interested in writing a dissertation. There are things in my field I would like to do research on.

I just don’t know though.

I don’t know where in the world I’d find the time to work full-time, to parent, to have a life, to exercise, to write fiction stuff (not that I’m doing much of that these days).

It just feels like there are about a dozen different things I’d like to try to be good at or to spend my time on and I just don’t know if I can do it all.

I should really just shut up now and enjoy my little bit of nerd glory for the day.
