I think I can still call myself Plain(s) Feminist...

...but I am moving to the Twin Cities, baby!

Yes, I got a job.

Yes, it is in Women's Studies.

Yes, that fact makes this post seem unnecessarily bitter, but trust me, it's really not. Just ask my adjunct or temporary-hire colleagues.

Yes, it felt awful to run into friends at the conference who had applied for the job I ended up getting. Almost, but not quite, as bad as when the situation was reversed. There is just nothing good about this job market.

Yes, the band from Minneapolis that I listened to in college is still playing gigs there, which is quite cool. (Someday, I will have to write a post about them.)

I'm going up in a few days to look for a place. Wish me luck!

Good luck, and don't worry if you don't find a place right away. I didn't find anywhere when I visited Missoula, but found one later from the online classifieds in the city newspaper.

Hey! Congratulations!

Hopefully the Twin Cities housing market has loosened up a bit since I was last looking for a place there. We'd call numbers in ads within hours of the paper coming out and they'd already be taken. Ugh.

Stay away from Riverside Plaza...or anywhere in Cedar-Riverside.
