Something unfoody again

But this time, I won't piss anyone off, or at least not intentionally. For those who I haven't already screamed my news to, I got a new job! I'm very excited by the prospect since my brain was atrophying in my current position, and it shows that I'm still loved.

There are some drawbacks to the new job though, mainly that 1)I'm not in my own office anymore, and that means no cranking the radio 2) I work later hours than I would like 3) I wont' be able to carpool back and forth from work anymore. But I'm taking the position cuz it's going to be exciting learning new things and hopefully I can put some of the things I've learned to practice.

I will miss my friends on campus, and campus itself, which is so beautiful at this time of year. I'll also really miss being a cougar at the start of the fall term. What I won't miss are all those dangly worms hanging off the oak trees. Yuck!

Hey there - guess I'm one of the few who haven't heard - congrats!

Whatcha gonna be doing? Are you still with the big uni or is it something completely different?

Sounds great and always good to want to be challenged - complacency(?) is soooo overrated ;->

Tell me more!

Congratulations on your new job! Sounds like it will take some adjustment, but you can handle it. Let us know later how it is all going. Again, congrats!

Bummer that we can't pick you up after work from campus anymore. :( Guess I'll have to make my own cinnamon buns from now on.

But, this is exciting and a fresh start is always great!

Thanks for all the kind words. I'm still with the university, so I still get my 5 weeks vacation, plus all the other perks you get for not getting the big paycheque. ;-)

Not sure what I'll be doing; it's going to be a 3 person office, with lots of room to grow. So hopefully I can pick up lots of new skills and move upward and onward. At least I won't be sitting there with nothing to do.

There's a few days after you get here before I move off that we can go in and get cinnamon buns. But yours are better cuz it's all organic ingredients.
