I seem to have landed well, post acquisition. A good team, a good boss, able to fit in enough that the ways I differ are viewed as additive not problematic.
If there’s one thing I don’t love about it, though, it’s that the rest of my team is based in NYC. Which means periodically I have to go to NYC.
In theory, I love the energy and the diversity and the culture. In theory, it’s fabulous.
In reality, it’s loud and overwhelming and exhausting.
For me, anyway. Your mileage may vary.
The Christmasy gold-and-silver lining to that, however, is that trips to NYC means drive-time calls and evenings in NJ seeing friends I’ve missed Very Much Indeed.
Nice to spend my commute catching up with S. Fun to watch home movies with V. and L. and V. and M. Great to spend an evening with L. and A. and little S.
So much for me to be thankful for!
