I'll do my best to report on the reason for my absence and lack of blogging, especially since it directly relates to my struggles toward getting a job. I'll share the rest in later posts, but it started with a last minute, thrown together (by me) job interview that apparently went better than I hoped - I was offered the job (postdoc). The only problem is that I don't think I want the job. Nothing wrong with the institute (its a good place), the lab (very friendly), the benefits (YES! A postdoc with good benefits!) or the research (different from what I've done before, but very cool).
The problem, you see, is not them. It's me. Because I can't stomach another postdoc that isn't a step up. A BIG step up. 'Cause if I ain't movin' up, it ain't worth moving for.
