i’m supposed to come up with an idea for celebrating my successful tenure vote, because we were unable to celebrate on The Day. i’m not very creative, so i’m not sure what to suggest. part of me wants to do the easy thing–dinner and a movie, because it’s such a normal couple activity. we haven’t been able to do that very much in the past several years (due to tenure-fueled-worry-stress), so maybe that would be an appropriate celebration. also it would be a good excuse to get out and see juno, which i’ve been itching to do for awhile now.
honestly, i’ve been daydreaming for soooo long about When I Get Tenure that i’m not even sure what to do with myself at this point. get a massage and a pedicure? go on a shopping spree? adopt a dog?
i’m going to keep brainstorming. if you have cool ideas for how to celebrate a life turning point kind of deal, please share! all i know is that it will definitely involve really yummy vegan food.
