Spring, the Season of Change!

mosaic of Spring

Lots of change in the air….

I got a new job! I start next week. I’ll be going from a slow-paced/academic/think-tank environment to a faster-paced organization where I’ll be more involved with public policy, and hopefully get back to doing more international work, which is something I have missed. I’m very excited for the change in pace and the chance to do something new. My schedule is going to change quite a bit, though. Right now I can set my own hours and usually work from ~7:30 – 4. At the new place the hours are set at 9-6, which will leave me plenty of time for going to the gym in the morning. The downside is that I’ll have no excuse not to go to the gym in the morning. :(

Posting may be sporadic as I adjust to the new schedule. This is part of the reason I've been wanting a "low maintenance" garden this year. Work on that is still underway. Wherever you are, I hope you're enjoying the changes of Spring!


  1. Congrats to you! Yes I can relate to the sporadic blogging as you get into your new Job..... I work craaazy hours!...and can't blog as often as I wish, but try to on my days off when time permits.....

    Good luck to you and congrats again!

  2. Oh how lovely. Congrats! It all sounds MOST exciting. Good luck. xxxx

  3. Congrats on the new job--and how wonderful that you'll have a chance to travel! 9 to 6 sounds a lot more pleasant than 7:30 to 4, but I'm sure it will take some getting used to. Enjoy your new opportunities!

  4. Congrats as you make your changes and add the excitement you are seeking...I am moving in the opposite direction for a while...from a frantic education job to retirement and slow pace for a while until I figure out the next path....I cannot wait to set my own hours and relax. I am trying to be more low maintenance and maybe once I get to all the weeding in earnest it will become more low maintenance.

  5. Hey! Congrats on your new job! I hope your transition is smooth!
