Visited my next “new home.” Long drive, meetings with advisors, business office, and teaching grant PI. Signed a lease for a 1-bedroom appartment at an affordable price; close enough to campus to walk; far enough to keep me working in office and then coming home to my little home away from home.
Excited for this opportunity but with the way the school year went there is a nagging feeling of being pushed out. My choice to leave, but such a miserablely negative enviornment with no teacher support, who wouldn’t want to leave?
Yet moving far away from home, husband, friends, and a comfortable life-style. Just horrible working conditions. And yet there are others who have it much worse. Cannot really complain when well paid for the local economy, doing what I love, and yet. . .
Changes definitely good and as I said exciting; the separation from the known is still somewhat scary.
