On an unrelated note, I had lunch Thursday with the only coworker from the old job that I felt at all close with. It was very nice, and I was reminded both of why I liked her specifically, and why I disliked the environment in general.
Yesterday, Eric and I attended a little picnic for my current coworkers. We meant to stay for an hour or so, but ended up there until dusk. It was almost like hanging out with friends. Everyone hugged when we departed.
I might starve to death during vacation season, but I am so much happier where I am now.
