I am still alive. Usually, I only post here.

In special news, I'm taking a new job - leaving a position I've held for almost seven years. It's work at the same company, in a different aspect of my industry. I really liked my old job, and could have stayed there had I switched to a new company. But there are extenuating circumstances...

For the past seven years, I have been working overnight. This has some merits. I was free to set my pace, I had autonomy, I could telework frequently... I avoided rush hour, could dress in casual clothes, and didn't have to pay to park. (Which in the DC area, is not cheap) I also really liked what I was doing.

On the other hand, working overnight imposed serious complications to my social life and planning. It made taking leave very difficult. And I didn't have the strong connection to my current cast of work team members - not like I'd enjoyed earlier in my run in the post.

So it was pretty much time for that change.

Yep, as soon as I read you had a new job, I wondered if you were going to work nights any more. I hope you like your new work as well as the old, and hope you get adjusted to working days again, quickly.

Congratulations! It seems like change is in the air for a lot of people. I hope you enjoy your new job and adapt quickly. Welcome to daylight!
