I’m writing this from my comfy, yet cramped, new workspace in Saint Louis. The move finally took place last weekend. I was a wreck for most of it, but the actual move went off without a hitch. We had beautiful weather and made great time. I’m glad I don’t have to make a trek like that ever again though (I hope).
I couldn’t have done this without the help of close friends in both MSP and STL. My eternal thanks to everyone who helped get me over the hump. I can’t believe it’s finally over after nearly a year of planning.
I was off most of the week, and one of the first things I did was head to the art museum. While I had visited SLAM several times while home over the last few years, nothing beats being able to go down there whenever I want. More on this in a future post.
Today was my first day back to work. It’s a weird feeling. I’ve already had my first internal meeting via conference call. It went well, but I definitely need to develop my WFH lifestyle over the coming weeks. I’ve given myself this week to just exist, with next Monday being the day I officially start my new work life.
This experience has been quite surreal to this point. I imagine it’s to be expected, but I hope I can fully settle in and resume my life now that I’m once again a resident of STL.
