I should be happy that we both got jobs (at least informally) in the same place (A), but insead I am sad that TE has to reject his really great offer in place L. He even liked all the people he met there, and it was in his favorite sub field.
I'm a new professor in an engineering/science field. I am a theorist, but not because I don't like to tinker around with things in the "real world"! I guess I need some nicknames here: if I'm the "Tinkering Theorist", my husband should be "Tinkering Experimentalist" (TE). Our kid is a bit too young to be a "tinkerer", but he definitely likes to poke at things, so he is the "little poker" (LP). I have an "even littler poker" (ELP) too! Also, now I do simulations in addition to theory.
