(i.e. 11pm on a Sunday evening) I came across an advert for THE PERFECT JOB, working as a lecturer at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences School Enrichment Centre. It included running distance and inhouse math courses for school teachers from all over Africa! And AIMSSEC is in Cape Town! 30 seconds from the beach! And there were sparkly rainbow unicorns, offering Lindt Extra Dark Truffles! But the deadline was November 2012, and I was sad. I sent a short email, attaching my resume and teaching statement, and asking if by any chance the position had not been filled.

It had not. I start at AIMSSEC on 17 June, and am saved from a lifetime of Doc-Doc jokes*.

I keep expecting my joy and excitement to die down to sedate, grown-up levels, but so far, not so much. My sojourn in Madison has been fantastic, and I have made wonderful friends and learned so much, but oh! to be going home to family, friends and a job I really want feels beyond awesome.

* Although, in a quirk of fate, having been registered for 3 different masters' degrees, none of which I completed, I will now be getting a masters', for which I was not registered.
