Life back in Israel has gotten into a comfortable routine. So comfortable that it is difficult to remember that something was ever different.
Nine months after graduating and six months at my (not so very) new job and I’m not sure what to write about.
Sometimes we reminisce about our life in Amsterdam. Trying to remember where were we exactly a year ago. And miss our old life. But there is something nice to the fact that I know exactly where I’ll be in a year- in the exact same place. After a few years of changes and moves, it’s nice to be stable for a while.
It’s hard to get used to. Like I wrote in the previous post, it’s weird to not have a graduation to count back to. To know I’ll be in the same place until I decide to move on. But I guess this is how it’s going to be from now on.
My work is interesting, most of the time. I am still a researcher, in many levels. Still raising questions, still looking for creative ways to find the answers. Still trying to understand how people think, or what makes them behave the way they do. But in the middle - there are other things. Meeting clients, e-mails, lunch breaks, arguing with my boss…
Occasionally, I take a day off. We are still working on publishing my second research project, so there are days of working on that. Seating at home or in a café, reading an article or looking for references. A short visit to my old life. And it’s fun.
But all together, my new life is pretty great too.
