Once I came back home, life got busy again. Two weeks away from work meant two weeks to catch up on. Plus, I got involved in a project on another grant. Is it really possible to have 110% of my time accounted for?? Seriously?
And now, it's almost the end of November.Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and Friday marks my 3rd year with Guam CEDDERS. I did a blog post about my first two years here. This past year:
- I traveled 36, 551 miles.
- I went to Hawaii for two weekends for the MCH LEND program (If you click that link, I'm in the 2nd row on the far right).
- I went to conferences in Jacksonville, FL and Atlanta, GA.
- I presented on two different topics at a conference in Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia.
- I was part of 3 grant writing teams. At one point during one grant writing session, we worked till midnight. Two of those grants were funded; one grant was approved, but no funds were available.
- I killed one external hard drive and a laser printer, not to mention several cases of paper in the process.
- People still call to ask my opinion about stuff and I'm still amazed that they do.
It's been an adventure. I still sometimes work before 8am and after 5pm, on weekends and holidays, on vacation and even when I'm home sick. But, it's all been worth it.
