If we all didn't laugh, we'd just go insane.
Because I try to do what my blogmom does, I too have moved. I have moved from MRU to somewhere a little less-M. That's just fine with me.
As many of you know, I've had issues with The Chair from Hell (see here and here and here). A while ago I reached a point where I was not enjoying anything but my lab and writing grants. And when one reaches that point where writing grants is one of the most fun things one does, its time to move on. It takes a while when you're more senior, and there are different problems from a new job when you are starting out. But I'm in the new place. I'm happy. I do not have a significant service/admin burden. I have a nascent lab group that I adore. I am teaching something I love. And there are once again things in my life that I like more than writing grants.
