Despite being absolutely knackered from the lupron, I am still quite happy to have the official word about tenure. I've known since January that it was highly likely. My letter from the Dean in support of tenure, which I got in January, was quite positive. Although I've only ever seen one letter for tenure (my own), my chair described the letter as very enthusiatic. That's always nice to hear!
Folks, I honestly have typed and deleted, typed and deleted, and typed and deleted half a dozen other thoughts about this process. But I have to tell you that I am not kidding when I say I am absolutely exhausted. I'm not even sure I can think straight to write much more on how happy I am about tenure and how I can't wait to see what happens next.
