_Inside Higher Ed_ anonymous article and discussion

Or "sickdussion," I think.

Inside Higher Education is a peculiar forum for worldwide hemming and hawing about intra-departmental politics. Cyber-anthropologists may one day study it and create the type "academicus patheticus: soon-to-be tenured professor convinced of his or her failure(s)."

The linked article performs nearly all of the process of academic self-evaluation: 1) oh, I'm in over my head; 2) oh, I'm doing pretty well; 3) oh, those people don't do it right; 4) oh, I'm not being noticed!; 5) oh, I've had it here!; 6) it's gonna be so much better someplace else, with a new job!

In fact, here's my way of defining what it's like to work in the academic world: "academic (noun): one caught in an endless loop of self-evaluation."
