I guess because I like keeping records of major life events, I'd might as well post something here about how
- I had been missing Seattle dearly ever since I left five years ago
- I went back to Seattle last week for Song Fight Live, as planned since March or something
- A couple weeks before that trip I happened to be contacted by a recruiter there for a very interesting job doing research in the field of high-performance distributed computing (among other things)
- The interview went well
- The offer came quickly
- heck yeah I'm moving back to Seattle
I put in my two weeks' notice yesterday, and as soon as I'd talked with my managers I felt like the vise grip that had been wrapped around my chest for the last two years had finally released, and I could breathe again. I'm also feeling a clarity and an almost overwhelming lack of anxiety that feels so foreign, and so good, right now. Even thinking about all the things that need to happen (sell my condo, buy another one up there, how should I get Werner moved, etc.) isn't making me even the least bit anxious.
I'm moving back to Seattle!
