Yesterday evening I did my last presentation. Then I was off. Off again.

I worked there for half a year. At the beginning we made a short contract, so that each of us could backoff if necessary. I was not sure how would I feel working for a company instead than for the university. They were not sure if such an independent researcher could fit well in a context where everybody is working for the same, middle term goal. I was the first to back off 3 months ago. Mainly wanting to let them know asap that I would not confirm the contract. Although I was the first to decide I would be lying if I were to say that they were not expecting it, or that they were overly unhappy.

It just could not work, and we both recognised it. I was the first to say it, but not to notice it.
