I Got an Adjunct Job at Tennessee

I spent the day looking for apartments reasonably near the campus of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Of course I am not looking at the sort of apartments where the students live, not after having lived there myself for all of seven years at different campuses. It is a lot of fun when you are that age, but now I am too old and I need to think about career stuff. I have already looked at the knoxville pointe apartments and I am going to try to see if I can get in there. It might be a bit past my budget and I do not need a two bedroom place right now. That is what they have available at the moment. It is either a two bedroom place or a three bedroom place there, but that is a bit too expensive and a bit more than I can afford.

It is hard to say how long the job is going to be here. If you are an adjunct professor that means that you are under contract and that you are disposable as well. So it could be one semester or two, or it could turn into a long term job. I am not sure whether or not I am going to be here after this semester though. The summer semester is when a lot of the tenured professors go and do other stuff, plus there are not that many courses on offer relative to the other seasons. It is not as though I can complain though. I just have to take what I have and live with that. I am interested in trying the fishing here, although I am not sure where I get the money to get a bass. They have a huge reservoir here with striped bass and walleyes.
