Yeah, I finally got the official letter telling me that I am offered a job in Germany. I'll be what is known as a post-doctoral research scientist (see this article for more information about what a postdoc is about), affiliated with a German research institution. I haven't been so excited in a while.
So yeah, I've been psyching myself for it. Brushing up on my German, thinking about topics to do research on, daydreaming about what Berlin as a city has to offer, and so forth. Heck, I've even watched this video a few times.
So yeah, it's amazing how time passes. Seven years ago, in 2005, I started this blog as a way of chronicling the latest chapter in my life, which was graduate school. Now, this chapter is about to end. It's been a wonderful chapter, many things have occurred, and I don't regret any of them.
Alas, it's time to open a new chapter, so we'll see what happens next. I turned 30 this month, am getting my PhD in a few weeks, and have a job waiting for me in one of the most vibrant cities in Europe.
Yeah, life is good right now. Hopefully it stays that way.
