Man, keeping this blog going has been more of a herculean effort than I ever thought… Onward…
Anyway, to catch up here’s where I am:
- Still living in California.
- Still married.
- Still a father.
- I still don’t own an earthquake kit.
So, on those fronts, things are going pretty okay. However, from a professional standpoint, things are moving along in ways I never would have expected.
You see, lately, I’ve been feeling a bit trapped at work. I can’t quite put my finger on it, because I actually work for a great company. They have a great product, the business model is sound and the people are truly some of the best an brightest I’ve ever worked with.
So what’s the deal?
Boredom I guess. Who knows? Or maybe over the years (I’ve been here for 7) I’ve just stopped caring. If that’s truly the case, then I definitely need to be moving on. There’s no way you can succeed at a company you really no longer care about.
A few weeks ago I accepted an offer from another company.
Boom. Did it.
It’s going to be contract work, but will definitely be closer to home and the bump in pay is something I can’t shy away from. New challenges and definite taste of the unkown. I. Cant. Wait.
I turned in my notice last week and am still waiting for the dust to settle… Shock and awe is how I’d generally describe the reactions (mixed with a little bit of jealousy maybe).
