actual real news  
So here's whats up (im sure a lot of you already know about this though)

I have accepted a new job at a place called Energetics as a Research Associate in their Homeland Security division.  Because it is a new position and a lot of the logistics haven't been worked out yet, I'm not quite sure what my specific responsibilities will be, but I will probably spend most of my time in their partnership division, coordinating between privately owned vital infrastructures and the homeland security division charged with keeping them safe.  I may also be thrown in with the engineers working on the nuclear security project, and possibly in their global health pandemic prevention project

I'm not sure where I will be based (the main office is in Columbia, with a satellite in DC proper, and one in development in Arlington where they hope to put all the DHS people).  They also don't know if I will be based on site with the clients, in office, or some of both.  It is nice because I may have the chance to help define what my responsibilities will be, and I am finally on a career track.  As much as I love my job, there is nowhere to go here.  At Energetics, I will be working in my field and can grow in my career.  There is also a chance of Clearance (you have to be cleared to use any DHS computers), which in DC is a goldmine.  Lastly, it pays more.

I feel bad leaving my current job (we are busier than we have ever been), but I have to think about my own future.  I agreed to stay here for a month to wrap things up and get someone else hopefully lined up to take my place.  Its a shame to leave behind such a good work environment, but I'm sure Energetics will be good as well.

To congratulate myself on my new job, i spent a whopping $50 on pjs from Victoria's secret (2 piece long sleeve flannel with a Lichtenstein style comic book print)
