Blogging and Updates

Hey, look at that! I’m updating my blog again and it hasn’t been forever! Someone that I just recently pointed to my site for information that I posted previously thought it was cool that I had this site where I posted a lot of stuff about my life. I have to agree that I do like looking back on things that I have posted here to see how I was like and what I was thinking at the time.

It got me thinking of what started this all back in October, 2002. At the time, I had just met Beth while working at the theatre and she turned me on to LiveJournal. In fact, a lot of this blog is from back in the day when I was posting frequently on LiveJournal. I would like to get back to posting as frequently as I did back then.

Leaving the office

Well, there are only 7 more hours that I will be in the office. 5 hours actually on the phones, 1 hour in a meeting and 1 hour for lunch. In the end, it will probably turn out to be 3.5 hours on the phone, 1 hour in the meeting and 1 hour for lunch. I have to meet with Jen (the Office Manager) to get some paperwork filled out so I can work in Wisconsin with Sonic.net.

I finally got all the VPN stuff working for Sonic.net so I can work remotely. It will be fun to do tickets from home and/or the library in Wisconsin.

I will miss working with all the good folks in the office here at Sonic.net. I liked giving Kavan shit over my cube wall, yelling yer mom jokes at Ryan and the all around tom foolery of working next to Kim, Jasper and John F. on the weekends. There are a lot of memories with the folks at Sonic.net, so I will miss them (as well as the Christmas Party and Birthday picnic in the summer time). Oh, well I need to move on and do what is best for me and my family.

It will be much easier to get a job and pay the bills in Wisconsin as well as move into my own place in a year or so that it would EVER be here in Santa Rosa – or ANYWHERE in California. I will get to see the country on the way there, which is something that I have been wanting to do for a long time. It will be a long drive (longer if it is raining, snowing or extremely windy), but I think this will be a great experience in the end and I look forward to starting my new life in Onalaska.
