.. That starting a new job, not even a particularly taxing one at that, would be so earth-shatteringly tiring?
I changed jobs last month and have been getting the hours in. Although the job is a relatively manageable one, it’s been quite interesting to see how it has torn me to shreds mentally. My research has been sidelined by learning new administration, trying to figure out who from the wider team are the good ones and who the troublemakers, and trying to generally take it in.
On a positive side, I am finally noting blog post ideas and mentally getting towards a point where some normality can ensue. It has to be said though that being near an airport has made me ponder flying lessons as a further distraction. Can’t win, can you?
