It has been a little over a week since my job ended at OSU, within the biochemistry and molecular biology department, where I’d been for basically three and a half years (as both a post-doc and a senior research specialist/undergraduate research techniques instructor). While it was bittersweet that the job was ending, all chapters have to come to a close at some point.
Today is a day of relaxing and trying to get into a new healthier routine for awhile before I find a new job that will probably have me within a few weeks forgetting about all the effort I’ve put into trying to balance my life.
I’ve realized over the past few months that I need to focus (and probably pencil in) time for both mental recharging, physical activity (I am rather irritated with myself that I’m currently at my heaviest I’ve been since finishing grad school), personal development, and professional development.
Follow me on my journey as I try to figure out exactly who I am, where I should be, and what I should be doing.
