I'll just pat myself on the back, thank you.

I'm not trying to beat a dead horse, but I'm still reeling from the recent advancement of my career from "eternal post-doc" to "faculty applicant".

OK, I haven't gotten hired yet. I haven't even gotten an interview yet. But somehow, the process of putting together the application made me realize that:
a. I really do want to do that.
b. I am ready to do that.
c. I am a pretty good candidate for that.

I am looking at myself in a whole new light. I feel new respect for myself.

Just wait until the rejections start rolling in.
