momentarily frus about work on some issues with potential long-term downsides for me. actually quite frus and angsty and mad. though i can possibly feel calmer about it in the next few days. doesn't help to have had a headhunter of a big name approach me a few days ago. frankly i don't feel like moving again within such a short time and when i do feel strongly for this place and some of its people (it's where i was "born" in the industry; all the strong fundamentals i have today is from the generosity of time and effort invested in me from the people here). but i dunno... the name is very big, pretty lucrative, and practially all my friends who've ever applied have never even heard a peep back from them, so to have been directly approached by them is a bit of a big deal. the role seems fairly senior, too, and would-be peers are from the other so-called "pedigrees"; but i'm not sure about the environment and culture and taking myself out of my comfort zone all over again within such a short time. anyway, still very early days and having a chat with them tomorrow. meanwhile, this week is absolutely sucky with damn screwed up hours - like 10am-12pm and then 6pm-12am today, and possibly having to work on a citation overnight again thanks to... i don't even wanna go there.
