Staying on the tenure track when you probably won’t get tenure

Sometimes I worry that I shouldn’t be in graduate school, that because my migraines may make the standard tenure track job impossible for me, I should be pursuing something else. But I’ve watched so many talented friends flounder for months or years on the job market working soul sucking jobs with employers who think you should pay for the privilege of working for them. I like graduate school and it’s paying me enough to get by and beat back my student loans a bit. Why would I quit now? I’ve written a bit more about this over on Tenure, She Wrote.
