I abruptly deleted my blog Dr. History last semester after I got a message that lent me to believe that someone had figured out my identity. I figured that I didn't want to risk discovery on campus before my tenure decision came out, so getting rid of the blog seemed the quick solution.
This morning, however, the Dean came into my office and brought me a letter from the Provost. My hand shook while I was opening it, but the news was good! I have tenure! The weird thing is I don't feel all that different. I'm still holding office hours. I still taught my classes like normal. I am still going to bring stuff home to work on this evening.
What again does tenure change?
Ah yes, I remembered about an hour ago... I can blog again.
