What's up peoples? Been a while but wanted to check in. I'm already nearly at mid-term here in the spring and it has been hectic. I'm getting much closer to the end of this process and reality is really setting in. I'm starting to get ready for some significant next steps that I'll not detail here but more to come on that soon.
In the meantime, I'm busy working through a class with the same professor I had over the summer. Not a fan of the guy but I feel a little ahead of the game since I know what to expect from him. However, it is very frustrating when you feel like you are spinning wheels in class since everything changes every five minutes. Oh well, only about eight more weeks in the semester :-)
Work has been pretty busy since about Thanksgiving. I've taken on a new role at the job and it took me about 2 months or so to get rid of all my old responsibilities. That is mostly complete now though and I'm settling into a nice rhythm. The new role is strictly internal so absolutely no client interaction, which has it's pluses and minuses. One of the minuses is no more fun travel. I am taking my last trip out to beautiful San Francisco in a couple days, I'll sure miss those trips. Already planning a trip with the kids to drive out that way one of these summers, hopefully in the next 2-3 years or so. When I win the lottery, I'll definitely own a place on the North Coast (might have to win twice, land is a little pricy up there!) I'll be forever indebted to Babou and Richelle for getting married out there and introducing me to the place.
I also need to say congrats to virtually every friend I have as they have all had kids recently, it has been a real population boom. I think everyone is making sure they have enough kids to pay for their nursing homes when they get older with the way these folks are reproducing! As a matter of fact, the better half is off visiting my sister-in-law who just had her first, congrats B & B!
I'll try to stop back by before too long!
Song lyric of the day:
If I stay lucky then my tongue will stay tied /
and I won't betray the things that I hide
Seven Mary Three - Lucky
Until next time.
