I don’t seem to “blog” much these days, I think I had like 3 posts total for 2010 and 2011 comes with some changes.
Wrapping up 2010, well it was a very busy year. My entire Summer (for the most part) was dedicated to a project at work and I watched 2 months go by at the blink of an eye. It was a good experience and we built some cool stuff. While stressful I am always willing to do that for a project I think has potential and knowing if it fails that some good will still come from it.
I did have the opportunity to squeeze in a few things during that busy time, went to RMIHR again and completed my first FULL 100,000ft motorcycle ride. It’s a change in vertical feet, worked out to be like 500 miles I think. Pretty grueling, looking forward to the 2011 ride. We also attended my sister’s wedding in Vail, was a beautiful ceremony and a great time! Packed in there as well was a trip to Vegas, only one trip in 2010 :(.
In October we headed out to my cousin’s wedding in Texas. My car rolled 200K miles, we got to hang out in Ft. Worth, see lots of family. The wedding was wonderful and plenty of fun. We also checked out another cousin’s restaurant/bar called Magnolia Motor Lounge. If you are in the DFW area you must visit and you must have chicken fried bacon.
Around Christmas we got the new Samsung Google Nexus S. Slick phone, leaps and bounds better than my old HTC G1. It’s been hard adjusting to having no LED notification lights. I instead annoy those around me with audible tones. I am trying to find like a Giraffe screaming or something to really make it stand out.
What’s next? The big change for 2011 is…..I decided to leave my position at ServiceMagic after almost 8.5 years. It has been a difficult decision, but in the end it is time for me to try something a little different. I will be moving over to a small start up in Denver called Sympoz. The opportunity is a good fit for my career goals.
Though I haven’t promoted it much only because I seem to jinx myself each time I have tried this in the past. I will be accomplishing a life long goal of getting my degree! Holy crap it’s been a long time, but I am getting it done and I look forward to staying out of a classroom for a little while. In about 4.5 months I should be all done!
I have no idea if anyone reads this anymore, but if you do, well that’s what’s been going on for about the last 7 months. 🙂
