My job is grant funded and because of that I'm only allowed to do full-time employment and have to nearer than a multi-day drive, so I'll be unemployed in a few months.

I've started training my replacement. As part of that I made a big list of all the specialized garbage I know. It's a lot. That's going to take a lot of effort for them to learn.

Also turns out one of the three people that's leaving is going to a fellowship at the CDC in global health which is essentially what I want to do so that'll be a good connection to keep.

A Portuguese friend of mine and I are talking about trying to meet up in Belgrade. Haven't seen him in four years or so. We were going to go to Ukraine last year, but the pandemic won. Need to look at pricing since debt is coming at me fast, and need to look at if things will even be open or not. I'd say it's got maybe a 10% chance of actually happening at best, but it's fun to plan travel again.
