Yesterday I had trouble sleeping, so I took the day off work.
It ended up being a good “mental health day,” sleeping in, having brunch with a good friend on a sunny patio, and heading out to race sailboats during a “small craft warning.”
I also got an email yesterday telling me that my job has been transferred. I start my new position on Monday. Out of the half-dozen in my current group, I think mine is the only positive change. I’ll have new challenges that I’ve been looking to address for a while, and the things I hate about my current position will be reallocated to others. The new job will be more strict, I won’t get 2-hour pub lunches, I’ll have to arrive and leave at pre-set times as opposed to my current flexible schedule. But hopefully the benefits will outweigh the negative.
