I have kept an occasional log for many years, that I mostly only make entries into when I'm depressed. *smirk* Well, I've been in an employment funk and haven't quite decided how I feel about this new position I've been offered in London. Let's think hierarchically here:
what do I seek in life? Influence, power, knowledge, purpose, love, and...money? Does that cover it all? What I hate more than anything is the feeling of irrelevance. And that's easy to feel these days here in the US in a job with little influence and little money. Would the position in London be better? I don't know - my fear is that it would be the same as NIH.
Other things that I need to do...little time for this right now.
