I'm always annoyed with a post about job search depression. The options seem to be these:
1) Don't post those, and give up the catharsis they do, in fact, bring.
Well, that won't work.
2) Post those, and then erase them. Nah, sets bad precedents. Next?
3) Find success in, or don't participate in, academic job searches. HAHAHAHA!!
4) One strategy that can be put a thousand ways: Be Present. Experience Space. Meditate. Read your copy of the Sutras. Asana Practice. Long Walk. Something else, but SOMETHING. DO something.
Ok, I'm going to go make food that involves molasses. Molasses, they say, is rich in B vitamins, and B vitamins are anti-depressive, and, they're cheaper than medication and perhaps more effective (I wouldn't know).
Off to the molasses.
