This is my second to the last week at my current job. I’m super excited about the new role I’m about to take up at a biotech focused company. After the assault that science has suffered in the US over the past few years, 2020 inspired a lot of soul searching about what I should do with my life. I really care about climate change and the human condition, and I have degrees in life sciences and biotech. I feel grateful I had the chance to make the switch during such a difficult time. I want to try to help.
I was surprised to feel the sense of loss I felt when I turned in my notice last week. I expected unmitigated joy, but I realized I’m going to miss the people I care about at work and my clients and contacts who made 2020 much more bearable because of their interaction. It’s been sad (and perhaps even painful) to let go.
Really looking forward to this next chapter in my life, even as I’m sad to say goodbye. I’m excited to work on something I find truly meaningful. 🙂
