The past three and a half years have been a very interesting journey for me. I've learned a lot about myself, my career goals (both for writing and clinical research), my family, and people in general. I learned what were acceptable sacrifices and what weren't. Part of all that knowledge led to me leaving my previous job without the safety net of another job already lined up. Mark's got the finances all worked out so we'll be fine, and I did have two possibilities in the works when we made the decision that it was time for me to resign.
The other part of that knowledge is a better understanding of what I want for myself and how I need to manage all the interesting times that life arranges. So this is me signing of from this blog. My personal social media presence will be on Facebook, so you're welcome to send a Friend request. My writing social medial presence will be dormant for a while as I get my writing legs back underneath me. And when it resumes, it will be under my pseudonym.
If I'm going to joke about being a Gemini and think about myself in terms of duality, I might as well fully embrace the concept to better maintain the most appropriate work/life balance.
I have so many possibilities stretching out before me, and I have Mark and Drew standing beside me, ready to step in synch with whichever patchwork of opportunities I put in place that make me happiest. That's really all that matters, and I think that's the perfect final note for this blog.
