Old job

For those of you that don't know, I have accepted at new job at Iowa State that starts in about a week. The last week or two have been pretty stressful at my current job. I have been trying to wrap things up and write some papers to give me a better chance at getting a permanent job later. I have learned alot at my current job both about science and general workplace observations. Last Thursday, my lab had a going away party for me. My boss grilled out in the atrium of the building (there was no fire hazard, it is an outdoor atrium, others brought food, beer, and wine and we ate and chatted for a few hours. I received a
Wisconsin Badgers beer mug which has been signed by all the people I worked with.

I have finished most of my lab work now and I had hoped to be done and take next week to prepare to move. However, I think it will take me a couple of days next week to tie up loose ends and notes and organize all of my samples to be put away. Then I can turn in my keys and move on to my next lab. I would say it is a sad but exciting experience.

I like the comment on your mug "I can't bother you anymore." Made me laugh.

Good luck on the new job. I'm sure all will go well, and you'll be a superstar!!!

Change is the part of life. Although leaving one place and going to other brings a lot of pain and sadness but going to new place and meeting new people, sharing their thoughts and experiences increases and widens ur horizons. Besides when u sit lonely sometimes and think about ur old place, a smile comes to ur face because it is always memorable to remember all the things u did at old place.
Enjoy and god bless
