It's amazing how transformative a change in scenery and setting can be!
After a month of anticipation (and unemployment wages), I finally started my new job. And I have one thing to say.
This is SO MUCH better than I dreamed. I love my boss, my lab, and my research. My commute is a relaxing 15 minute drive. I love being at the heart of campus, where I get to see the excitement on student's faces. I'm still learning, but I'm appreciated
I could get used to this.
I want to thank the mentor, collaborator, and (hopefully) friend who took in this broken soul and gave me another chance.
I'll do my best not to disappoint, but I need you to promise to tell me when I screw up. 'Cause we all know it'll happen, and there will be times when I'm not doing the right thing....
Just keep treating me with humanity and dignity and you will have my unending loyalty.
It's kinda my MO, for better or worse.
