An actual legit invitation to join the editorial board of a journal made its way to my inbox. Truly, a real one! A journal I've published in multiple times, well-suited to my specialism, with the invitation coming from a colleague I know personally, and an editorial board that includes legitimate people I also know personally.

I'm having difficulty believing it's real. Not because I have imposter syndrome or anything, but because invitations to join editorial boards aren't something real journals do. Only scam journals invite people to join editorial boards. I'm surprised my spam filter didn't catch it, giving how rigorously I've trained it to send those invitations to junk.

I accepted, of course. It makes my promotion application look quite sexy, and I even have some research leave coming up, so it's unlikely to cause problems if the duties turn out to be heavier than promised.

Cool! I feel seen. I feel like I just leveled up in my career.

Congratulations on the professional achievement, ergative!

A great light has shined upon those who lived in the shadow of death

Very cool!!!!!

Congrats.

You're both lucky.

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

Very happy to be at my new job, a for-profit grant writing consultancy, to which I've returned after a seven-year hiatus. It's great to be back on a team of people who either do what I do or support doing what I do!

Plus, the increased salary and 100% remote position will enable my husband and me to move closer to my elderly parents--a significant bonus.

Yipee!!

I'm celebrating that the abstract that was turned in last week has been accepted.
