I was happy to read FemaleScienceProfessor’s blog today, which encouraged potential hires to admit they do something other than work.

Even if copping to hobbies and families is a bad strategy for getting a job, I think those of us on the market should do it anyway. Life beyond work–even intellectual, interesting work–should never be disparaged.

Fun is fun. There, I said it! And no scary hiring committee will ever make me deny it.
