    2020-10-05 A Day at Waubonsie

    What must it be like to have your day defined by the hunt for firewood.. or searching for viable acorns? I had a lot of stray thoughts yesterday as my mind tried to walk away from the conversations in play. Someone would say something and I would think about that for a second and then […]

  • 2017-12-13 Big News Today!

    I’ve been unemployed for five and a half months. I’ve rested, rejuvenated, and rediscovered a sense of purpose for myself in this life. As of today, December 13, I’m back on the payroll!.. Woo-hoooo!! In the past month I began to get more serious about finding the right job for me. I had narrowed down […]

  • 2017-11-30 The Last Day Of November

    When I decided I was going to quit my job I had a very general idea about the timeline I would adhere to for the remainder of the year. In review.. July – Adjust to not working, reconnect with important people in my life, meet new people, and travel the Pacific North West. Check ✅ […]

  • 2017-10-26 History Repeats – Part 2

    My job interview today went well. I’m pretty sure my reputation precedes me on this one and that probably cuts the conversation in half. The people I spoke with were the president of the company and the current product developer/owner/leader. Really cool people who seem to have great vision about the company and where things […]

  • 2017-10-05 Why Not Both?

    This morning I met with one of my former managers and we had a good conversation about career, things I should look to be doing, and just generally catching up with our respective lives. There was a lot packed into that hour and while I didn’t necessarily come away with a concrete yes on potentially […]

  • 2017-09-12 The “Big” Question

    The crossroads. The decision. The thing that will change all other things to come. That’s putting a lot of pressure on one question. That’s putting a lot of pressure on one’s self. That is what thinking about what my next “career” move feels like. I’ve adequately filled up this months to-do list with things that […]

  • 2017-05-26 I Did It!

    I finally quit my job. Yesterday was an interesting day. I had to talk myself, one last time, into pulling the trigger. If you are following along, you had a front row seat for that pep-talk in the morning before I went to work. It was a much easier thing to be excited about on […]

  • 2017-04-18 Dark and Stormy

    Either that’s the weather outside right now or what I should be drinking to dull my animosity… or both. Yesterday I left the office at 4PM tired and frustrated. I had been there since 7 trying to make progress on a project. The VPN connection is so unstable and if it is idle for more […]

  • 2017-02-21 Timing Is Everything

    If you would have told me a year ago I would be turning down a job offer today I would not have believed you but that is exactly what has happened. A year ago in February I wrote about how I had come to the end of a lot of what I could stand in […]
