I've accepted a job offer in Houston, after a lot of discussion and back and forth with Mike about the pros and cons and oh shit he has to find a job too. While I'm really not feeling good about having to move, I'm super excited about the job itself. It's with a company I've been hoping to be hired by pretty much since I started doing this whole geology thing, and I'm going to be doing work that I find extremely interesting. (I get to look at actual rocks! And thin sections!)



My projected start time at the new job is beginning of February, since hopefully that will provide sufficient time to finish writing my thesis, get it defended and get all the edits in, as well as deal with more mundane tasks like finding an apartment, selling the house, all that. I'm actually a little excited about the house selling part, since this seems like a great opportunity to thin out our possessions. The company is paying for the move, using Atlas. Which means that someone else gets to pack up my house and move all the boxes. This is apparently how grownups do things, who would have thought?



We're planning to come back to Colorado and visit very often, hopefully even as much as once a month. So you haven't gotten rid of us yet! And right now it's definitely my plan to be back for Mile Hi Con next year as well. (It'll be even easier to get to Worldcon, come to think of it.)



It's exciting, and scary. Just like all adventures.

Congrats on the job, a truly big change! I still hope you can come back to CO in the future and work here with equally exciting things as well.

Congratulations on getting a job, and one you wanted at that!

I don't actually know you, but even for me it's going to be weird for you not to be in Colorado anymore, it appears so much in your journal. I hope you settle into Houston well.

Congrats on the job. I kept meaning to message you while you were visiting, but oops. Any idea where in Houston you want to live?

We're not sure yet. It depends on where Mike's work ends up being. We're hoping to get away with just having one car.

Congratulations! Also, selfishly, this means I'll have a greater chance of seeing you ever, since I've essentially sworn off Colorado.

it's funny, we were just discussing this at the office yesterday, about how one of our clients is a geologist, and she can't get work in colorado, but houston is throwing jobs at her left and right.

even as little as i see you, you will be missed. congratulations!

Denver will miss you, but it sounds like a good decision. And hopefully you'll be able to get back to the Motherland soon.

(Says the guy who has no idea where he'll be living in a year.)
