Well, since the email went out to my department, I guess it is official.

This was my last semester working in Academia.

It's been a long time coming and the right decision for me and my family.
Next week I'll start a new adventure as a Quantitative Analyst, still here in Buffalo.

I'll miss my students. I'll miss my coworkers. I'll miss the great political science community.
But after a lot (A LOT) of soul-searching, pro-con lists, chats with my friends & family, and questioning whether I was doing the right thing; I'm sure this is the right move for me. #Academia is a fantastic place, but it isn't the place for me, anymore.
So a huge thank you to the amazing #AcademicTwitter community and #PoliSci more broadly. You've been a huge part of my life & identity.

I'm excited for this new adventure & hope to still have a place in the Twitterverse.
I'm sure I'll have more to say about why I left & how I (finally) reached this decision, but for now I'll leave it as; sometimes the things you want to be right for you, just aren't. And that's okay.
