Earlier I scrolled through the H-Net job announcements that came to my inbox. And I'm feeling better about my job prospects. Of course, I don't mean to say that all of a sudden I am more impressive than I was before, but just that it looks like there may be some call for historians who do US foreign relations and international history stuff. Yay! Now all I have to do is work hard, write a damn good dissertation that's about something interesting, publish a couple of articles, and wow lots of fancy historian-types at conferences and the like.
