So I just realized that the URL I chose for this blog was the former URL for the fantastic Leaving Academia site started by Sabine Hikel and continuing through October 2010.
Just to clarify - I'm not her, and am in no way affiliated with her or her work. My decision to leave academia was just made in early February 2011. And while I found her writing from 2009 and 2010 through leavingacademia.com and Inside Higher Ed when I started researching my options, I didn't realize this blog URL had ever been used by anyone else.
So ... just wanted to clarify. More later. I'm working on a few more posts and will have them up soon. In the meantime, feel free to leave a comment or e-mail me.
