Several months ago I explained how I was leaving Chicago to start my phd at Indiana University. That’s what I did. I packed up, headed south, and started with more school. For a variety of reasons, though, I decided to leave my program. I’m back in Chicago permanently and will be starting as a developer at Duo Consulting on November 3rd.
Some, upon hearing this news, treat me as though someone has died, and while this was a sudden decision, it was well thought out and the best for myself and those I love. The last few weeks have been hectic, but I’m really looking forward to my new job and life in Chicago.
