It's all about the timing.

As y'all know, I'm going to be here at JPL until October, thanks to a bit of good timing.

Today I ran into one of my former JPL compatriots from my Professional Development days, who informed me that, though the last time we spoke - about three weeks ago - nothing was happening in PD, recently three positions opened up. He immediately thought of me.

Three. And while I can't exactly say that I'd have my pick of them, at least two of them would be ripe for me.

When we last spoke, I was only scheduled to work at JPL for two and half weeks, which he remembered. When I told him I was in my current assignment until October, his face fell.

"Oh. We can't wait that long."

Damned bad timing.

We talked some more and he suggested that I keep my eyes open - maybe one of the positions would still be open come October.

Let's see if the timing will work to my advantage again...
