waiting for the inevitable news ..

for the record, i'm writing this before one particular committee sends out their apology emails and selects those who proceed to campus interviews.

i don't think i'll make it that far.  as for why ..

judging from how today's phone interview went, i think i sounded like a space-cadet theorist who couldn't manage to explain anything in layman's terms, much less his own results.

what i didn't expect was that the committee members present in the interview actually wanted to ask about my research.  in fact, they had carefully read my research statement and wanted to get a clearer picture of what a measurable differentiable structure is!


the one time an audience wants to know about my work, and i go and fvck it up.
