As I'll be joining the ranks of those we affectionately refer to as 'wage slaves' in the Netherlands, I spent an hour this morning brushing up my resume. Yes, just another week or so and I'll officially be a lecturer (or assistant professor, or whatever they call it in English) at Leiden University. As well as a student, as I'll be studying to get my master's degree at the same time I'll be teaching undergraduates. It's going to be, er, interesting. Especially on September 8, when I have classes as a master's student, but need to give a presentation with Rob Punselie for a group of bachelor students at the very same time. Does JK Rowling have one of these on loan?
(Oh, don't worry, I'll keep on freelancing. I will only teach one class a week, and who needs sleep, anyway?)
