It's been 4+ months since I've gone back to work full time, on a long-term contract. The company I contract for is in the data storage industry, an industry I was introduced to back in 2004. I enjoy this world... Fast paced, surrounded by highly intelligent individuals. And being 10 years older, I'm much more mature for this industry.
This company, and my manager, is flexible with working from home, but at least 2 days a week it's recommended we show our faces if we are not on a client's site. Since we only have one family vehicle, this means I take the via train in once a week to Toronto, and spend the night with my ultimate bestie.
Moving away from Toronto was hard, and it was moving away from her and her dance family which proved to be the toughest adjustment. Initially I thought it was the community as a whole I missed, not being able to teach the students and take pride in knowing that a small part of my teaching made them as successful as they are. And while I do miss that, them, it's really my friendship with my friend of 11+ years, and seeing her many times a week that I took advantage of. Fast forward to now, and being able to have a weekly grown-up date with her, outside of the studio. We pick up some food, go back to her place, drink wine, throw on some netflix, and chat. We chat about everything. I missed my person tremendously, and I'm glad we've found a way to get some much needed time with my twisted sister.
