Happy Anniversary to Me
In the comment thread to the post below, I replied to a comment from Pablo by saying:
The opportunity to do this particular kind of work was my main motivation for taking the Museum job.
My comment reminded my that my first day on the job here was July 13, 1997. Today is my 10th anniversary here. It's been quite a decade. I remember being very apprehensive when I first took the position, in no small measure because it included a hefty pay cut. I kept wondering how long it would take me to really seriously wonder if I had made the right decision to leave the biotechnology industry. Apparently that number is greater than 10 years. After a decade, I still feel like I have the job that I was born to do, and it gives me a great deal of pleasure to share my work with my fellow bloggers.
