Apparently my blogiversary was April 28th. I totally missed it given my lack of blogging recently. Two major things have changed quite a bit since I started this blog.
  1. I have switched careers from a highly sought after post doc at a top notch institution to a researcher for a non-academic (at all) non-profit.
  2. DH and I bought a house and have begun to settle in here.
Even though ANJ has come with many ups and downs, I am feeling content with my decision although I am struggling with how to blog about my new position and my daily life without compromising my anonymity. I've had a bit of a breakthrough using the Wedding Cake Baker analogy but it does not fit for all the things I'd like to share.

My plan is to start applying for my own funding (to get out from under our crazy FC) and I hope to share that experience as it's different from grant writing and I'm sure many who are looking for non-academic positions would be interested in this experience so I'll do my best to find a way to share that with you.

I need to start revising my dissertation manuscript so I can submit it to another journal. I haven't had any motivation to start this but I am planning to make it a priority when I get back from my work trip.

I also hope to share my unbloggable personal situation soon.

Finally, I have a post brewing about reviewing articles for international journals.

So there's a preview of what's to come. I hope my readers remain interested and that some of what I have to say is helpful.
