Of course, I will miss all my friends in the School of Technology and in the rest of the college, with whom I have worked for the past almost five years, but I'm so grateful for this opportunity and am looking forward to getting to know new people and experiencing new challenges. And it's also great to know that my position with the university will be permanent and secure, something that I have not yet experienced as a full-time employee there (my original position was based on research funds and was therefore always in jeopardy, and my current SoT position has been uncertain for the past two years due to the hiring freeze). I really feel blessed.
Oh, and just in case anyone was wondering, yes, I took the blog off private for the time being--so if you want notifications in Google Reader that I posted, then you may need to delete this blog and re-add it. Thanks for reading! :)
