Those of us in higher education know @AcademicsSay (aka "Shit Academics Say"), by Prof. Nathan Hall, as one of the most hilarious, sustaining things to look forward to in our workday. SAS has started a new blog, SAS Confidential, and I'm so pleased that he chose to add my essay, "Me and My Shadow CV" (originally in the Chronicle of Higher Education) to his curated content. Many thanks to those readers who have written me to say they've found this piece useful or comforting. As awful as academic rejection is, at its best, it can be reorienting and motivating.
