2017 Will Be a Year of Change for Me

For a long time I have tentatively planned to retire at the end of 2017.  Barring something unforeseen I will follow through with that plan.  In September I will have completed 25 years of employment at my university which will qualify me for benefits including a pay out for unused vacation time.  By then I will be over 68 years old and it will be time for me to leave.

I have worked from 1974 just after I received my masters degree in chemistry until the present.  I had a few periods of unemployment early on, but I have work continuously since 1982.  Most of my pension in in TIAA, but I have funds in other retirement accounts.  I feel that I have planned well for retirement and can be become a gentleman of leisure.

Later on this year I will write some blog entries reflecting on my career.
