When coming up with a title for this post I realized that I unfortunately already used “Busy” as the title for my immediately previous post – which is a shame because I’ve felt even more frantic in the days leading up to departure. I tried to see as many people as possible before I left and of course had to tie up a lot of loose ends.
I was able to go out to San Francisco for 10 days which was great, though not nearly as relaxing as I thought. I said goodbye in person to my parents, my sister and brother-in-law (and their new dog), plus some friends from my high school days. I unfortunately missed some of you. I then had a series of going away parties/dinners/coffee meetups in DC, which were a little exhausting, but kept me busy during my unemployed days, and most importantly made me realize what great people I have in my life.
