Day 314/365: The Big Reveal [20181110|20:03]

As promised on Thursday, here is the public announcement of the Big News.

I started a new job last Monday.

After almost exactly twelve years, I left the lab. I was sad to go, but my reasons for leaving were myriad and included being very, very tired after six years of commuting between London and Birmingham. My one-way commute has gone from three-plus hours to just over half an hour, including drop-off times for both children.

I'm still working in engineering, just doing a different role at a different institution, about which I shall be intentionally vague to protect my pseudo-anonymity here.

We shall see how it goes. My apologies if I'm less responsive here than usual; learning a new job is time- and energy-intensive.

Thank you! Yes, it's amazing. I didn't have to do the old commute every day, but even in Week Two I'm already finding I have more energy.
