is never something i really look forward too. He is such a miser with the positive feedback ( like one in my 10 years at work) that i always figure a conversation with him is going to land me somewhere im not really happy being. So just start to imagine how bloody good i felt yesterday afternoon (after a run no less, so i was feelin pretty pleased with my self anyway for dragging my butt out the door in 40 degree heat instead of lunch with a colleague,) when i walked out of his office with...
a) a swanky new office of my choice, including the one with couch (lol, very coveted in our department) just vacated by exiting naughty other prof. Think Im gonna take the one next door though.
b) a promotion
c) academic control over a entire MOU work program involving 5 independent research projects and support staff
d) 4 more guilt free months on salary to finish up The Thing.
Im pretty stoked. It was a good day.
