I know what you are thinking, “Country, where did you go?”. Well I will tell you dear reader, I went nowhere. I realize it has been over a month since I posted, this is one of the negatives of staying busy. In the past month a lot has changed, including that I am changing jobs, moving, oh and maintaining a social life, all of which is worth it and time consuming. Now this is no excuse, I need to keep up with posting regularly, but at least you will not feel forgotten and this way we can all be happy. Okay fine, maybe not happy but hey we can all at least agree to be content right? Fine be that way, I will be content and you can be you, deal? Good. I am glad we could come to new place Spiritually. Ecumenically. Grammatically (See what I did there? It’s a Jack Sparrow Quote).
Yes, as I previously did mention I am moving. Now before anyone gets too excited, I am moving locally, not nationally or internationally. Sadly this means my dream of being on House Hunters is postponed a little longer, oh darn. Right now I am staying with family, which has been nice and relaxing but at the same time I miss having my own place, you know? Me being the nerd I am, it’s a good thing, means I have things like home automation goodies I want to work on and that kind of requires my own place. Funny enough I am already in the process of planning everything, except one pesky little think. Right, the actual move, haven’t planned that one yet. So now the fun part, finding a company willing to move all of the large heavy stuff because of the stairs and the fact that I just do not have the will to move furniture up a flight of stairs. I may love working out but I do not love it that much.
So You’re Stuck In Texas?
Stuck is a strong word, especially when talking about the Great State of Texas. You see while yes I remain in Texas I’m not stuck because I love this State and it’s people. Texas folks are some of the most friendly you will meet. Sure our city folk can be a but gruff, but in the end they mean well. Plus the beauty of Texas is astounding, granted I love the whole southeast but Texas is something special. One of my biggest selling points of Texas for me is the pride that we all have for our State. You see most folks are proud of where they come from, but in Texas we take this to a whole new level. Growing up I did not understood it, I mean come on at five who understands anything, but now it’s a part of me. I bleed Red, White, and Blue for America and for Texas (there is some burnt orange in there too). So no dear reader I am not stuck in Texas, I am happily rooted in Texas.
Wait… What about the job thing?
Oh yes, I am switching jobs, not the field of work just the company and the type of technology being used. I am rather excited about this new opportunity, I get a chance to learn a lot of new things, and I am a nerd so I love learning. It is a slightly larger company which does make me a little more nervous, for reasons beyond my understanding. I will miss my colleagues and friends at my current job, and I wish them well on their paths, but to say I am ready is an understatement. I do not say that as a negative against my employer, but as a statement of my drive to grow. Lately here I have felt as though I am at a standstill learning and career wise, again not a negative. Another perk and exciting point is that the new place is closer to home, so less driving means more personal time! I do not know about the rest of you but I am learning that Dallas traffic sucks more each day.
Come On Man, Wrap It Up Already!
Alright fair enough, this is a longer than usual post, but this will become more normal as time goes on. Life gets busy and sometimes even hectic, but it keeps us on our toes and it keeps up moving. We could complain about the busyness, but if life were not as busy we would probably complain that it’s boring. So live some, get busy, and enjoy some adventure.
And that’s how ya wind up all hat, with no cattle
