This is my 300th post, I feel like I should have a birthday cake or something. I did start this blog about a year ago, that deserves a cupcake at the least!
I have written about this before, but it has come up again. Working in academia is like living on a military base. It is so transient, both among the student population, your co-workers, and contacts you have at nearby schools.
So my New Year's resolution should be: I need to reach out to people I like before they leave.
