So yeah, new job. Oh yeah, I lost my University of Missouri job. Grant money ran out. That was a very hectic time.
I lost my job on August 28th, 2009. After applying like mad to every position I was remotely qualified for I finally got a job at Bright Tree and started on September 28th, 2009. So very lucky in this economy.
This has the potential to turn out to something really awesome. As B said, “even if it doesn’t, it will definitely make a story.” Or something to that effect. They just got an SIBR NIH grant for phase one. This apparently is a message to venture capitol people to invest heavily, so this is set to blow up really soon. (In a good way 😉 )
So, yeah, I have a new job. 🙂 It promises a definite raise at 90 days (pending performance), another at 365 days, and potentially even more when when something happens. (I can’t say anything about it yet, you know)
One good thing: New computer! Macbook Pro 15″
One bad thing: Crappy Insurance. *sigh* I sure hope we get the public option…
In related news, I just got a Speck case for my new computer (Bert by the way), I’ll have pics soon, but it’s awesome. 🙂
Completely distracted by ‘How I Met Your Mother’, done.
