A Break and a New Beginning

After two years and a few months, a month of notice, an additional two weeks of 'additional notice', I've finally left my old job to pursue an amazing, new opportunity. The new job introduces me to more technologies I want to learn and puts me in a better position to accomplish my future career goals.

Yay me!

What I'll miss most are the friends I've made and the crazy lunchtime shenanigans, especially all the politically-incorrect hilarity that ensued in the office pantry. If there was an HR fly on the wall, its head would explode in a sparkly shower of racist, sexist, pigist, homo-(and hetero-)phobic ignorance; all over our Go Go Curry katsu... ah, Go Go Curry. Actually, I think I'll miss that the most.

Anyway, that photo is from my going away party at Gstaad.

My departure and start date worked out perfctly, straddling a trip to Provincetown, MA for Carnival week.

Carnival week was fun, and I'm glad I did it once, but that sorry-ass-excuse-for-a-parade doesn't warrant the unbelievably huge crowd and the exorbitant prices. I mean, there weren't that many hot, shirtless guys. Ugh.

And now for your viewing pleasure, a short teaser from my vacation. Enjoy!

Good luck with the new job!

Congratulations on the job!

And yes, I agree. P-Town is more fun when it isn't carnival week (and when poor little old me can actually be there).

Congrats on the new job.

Lord, I need a gay vacation. The week with the family is fun, but it ain't the same.

I couldn't agree with you more about missing the friends and inappropriateness of it all. That is what kept me in that sinking ship for as long as I was there. Good luck at BW and see you soon. Keep in touch!
