I used to be a group leader in industry; designing new medical therapies to treat various diseases then getting them into the OR and eventually into the market.  Eventually, I realized I wanted something else.  The massive amounts of learning, less of a drive for just pure profit motive under the guise of helping patients, mentoring students…these were all things I missed.  So in 2013, I started on the path to find a TT job at a school with a heavy research focus.  I got an offer in 2014 but delayed the start by a year because there was a critical project that took over my industry life.  But, here I am trying to keep my head afloat in the tower.  These are (mostly) the thoughts I have while sitting in my office trying to procrastinate grant applications.
