Thanks for replying!

I don't have a counterfactual universe where I could alter certain factors about the weekend to see which of those factors is responsible for me feeling drained.

This is certainly true. But I was hoping that you might be able to tease out the main differences between that LW weekend and occasions where you did not feel drained. It could even boil down to something like "I happened to be feeling stressed about something else during the community camp, which could explain why I felt drained more easily".

but felt the weekend incredibly draining.

Would you mind explaining why?

If you don't mind, I have a few questions to ask you:

  1. What field did you switch from each time, and what is your current field?
  2. How did you academically prepare yourself for the switches?
  3. How would you rate the level of difficulty involved each time?
  4. What inspired these switches?

Any information would be helpful, as I am currently considering a switch myself. Thank you.

I am very much interested in working at the CEA. However, I am currently based in Copenhagen, and uprooting my spouse would be rather difficult and problematic. I am wondering if it would be at all possible to work remotely for the CEA. Please let me know. Thank you.
