It was so painful for me to cancel all other four interviews of the next weeks. They have already booked the planes and hotels. But I just wanted to be honest and I liked the small team and the office environment that specialized on knowledge management, I got it in the first shot. I was unemployed for four days !! Gosh! It was a holiday that slugged the hiring manager's spirit. On numbers, I will be unemployed for 13 days.
The academic journey was over on December 15. I remember every days I spent at Carbondale for last 784 days (This is not an absolute measure...), Numbers are just a numbers. I will be missing Carbondale more than ever. Few weeks back to release the stress, I went to watch a movie This is 40, paul and leslie's wonderful settings navigated me towards a ten years ahead of my life. It was so much of great inner feelings yet cunningly fishy and too much of romantic drama. Oh ! I started getting scared of future. Hmm...who invented time ? Stop the clock forever and see...This is 19.
EGIS labs, the clock tower, Evergreen Terrace Park, The Reservoir , PK's , Hanger 9, the train;s sound at midnight ', Dancing in Cali's, the university lake,Morris Library, soccer ground, rec-center, …......my poor bike are some of entities that I will be remembering in my tributaries forever. I will miss all of you and all of my friends who were always helpful to me. I am always with you, those memories will always encircled around the tangent that passes through the grey matter of my life everyday.The spirit of graduation day and strong sense of confidence that I got from the SIU really helped me to mold my personal and professional goals. I salute all of them who were part of it and helped me in this transition.

Some mind-boggling memories were: Grassy Lake trip, Kentucky Cadiz Trip, Garden of Gods, SSA, Getting Lost in Little Grand Canyon, Alto Pass, winery-trip, berry picking, cultural show, dipawoli night, Giant City, driving to new york,the last new year dance at NJ , Trip to Kentucky, Scuba Diving, Summer Concerts, chalking for SSA, Julie's Sustainable Class, Hexmoor Agent Based Modeling Class, Creation museum trip to Kentucy with SSA folks, and other endless happenings at Carbondale, you all are all part of me. Eric's insatiable quest of knowledge domain!, Something I always remember forever and appreciate.I miss you all!
More than eight inch of snows in Carbondale was something I never saw in the last two years ( its very small number again...lol ), it was so much fun to play with snow in the last week of stay at carbondale, we walked all over the snow and enjoyed the kids skiing in their boards in Carbondale reservoir.
Then driving here and there for a job interviews were even more hectic and stressful. Now I am little bit stressed with moving, arranging the logistics, needs to pack off my stuffs and move ahead.
Yep...I am a Kansas boy now. Lawrence, Kansas! Welcome to the America's top 10 college towns. I will be moving there this week. Oh! Ya at last, I went to watch a movie Jack Reacher! yesterday, I remember the words of Tom Cruise. Why the person serve military ?
1. To maintain the family tradition
2. To be a patriot
3. To get a job
4. To kill a people.
Let me add one more, I became military to be a pacifist! Here it ends the story of transition of being student and civilian for last two years.I will start my new blog living in “Lawrence : Navigating 360 degrees”. And this will officially complete my blog TRANSITION!!
I love you and miss you Carbondale.
