It's getting better

The new job is getting interesting. I'm currently working on topics as varied as medical uses of marijuana, chlamydia, food policy councils, and something called "hospital community benefits offices". I'm meeting different professors in the school of public health, physicians in the area hospitals. I'm meeting with folks in the state and city departments of health. I'm starting to feel a bit more confident. I'm starting to remember the names of the people in the office. I'm getting used to the commute (which actually isn't so bad, in the summer, at least). I have a friend on campus who just started here a few weeks ago, and we meet for lunch about once a week - so nice! Harvard is kind of an amazing place to work. There is so much here. And the work environment is very humane. I think I'm going to like it here.
