I can't wait! My past, present, and future are finally meshing well and I'm ready to start a new life.
Am I a little anxious? Yes. Am I waaaaaay excited? Hell, yes! Am I a little sad? Yes. Am I so very happy that I'll have family and friends on both coasts now? YES!
So, those of you wondering what the Hell is going on with me, here's your update:
I'm head over heels for a beautiful, amazing woman and we've decided that our little family doesn't need to be bi-coastal anymore.
I have procured a new career position at a wonderful academic institution and will start there at the end of the month.
In the meantime, I have given notice at my current position, I have packed and sorted and downsized, and I am ready to hop in my car--with said girlfriend--and we'll be off for home on 8/14.
I'll try to update you a little more recently from now on, okay?
