Couch Surfing FTW!

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

Today was another day in the wait for results.  My time is being spent between Caribou Coffee, random meetings with previous coworkers, sending my resume around to everyone I know and a lot of web surfing.  I haven’t yet hit the wall, in terms of feeling worthless, which is good.  Hopefully I’ll land it before hitting that barrier.  Gotta stay positive, yo!

Otherwise, weekend was fairly uneventful.  Traveled to Springfield, VA to meet up with college roommate, his wife and daughter for a birthday celebration in the burbs on Saturday afternoon, then met up with roommates in Adams Morgan.  Fairly uneventful.  Giant pizza slice was consumed post haste in the cab on the way home.  Today = movie/chill day.

Hopefully bigger news to come tomorrow!  Check ya then…

DC = Super Awesome

Well, then… it’s been a while.  The grand majority of 2008 went undocumented from my end, but I’m going to start trying to make a comeback in ’09.

Let me give you a run-down of what’s happened in my world:

  • I worked at SH until early August ’08, then got involved with the notoriously well-run campaign in the city of winds.
  • I went on RAGBRAI yet again… and it was awesome yet again.  You can, of course, see our exploits here:  http://www.spokeeasy.com/.  I don’t think I’ll go into detail at the moment.  You can find our Facebook group out there, too.
  • I attended Halloween and NYE @ Travis‘s pad, which was solid.  It was a good break from previous years when we ended up at expensive or lame parties.
  • I moved out of 180 North Jeff after living there for 3 years.  All my stuff was packed up, shipped off and moved to storage in the cornfield state.
  • I’m now in Washington, DC, staying with friends for the moment, looking for a job.  The last gig was over on January 31st and I’ve been looking ever since.  Big interview yesterday, so we’ll see where that takes me.

2008 was a pretty decent year.  While I didn’t have that much money towards the end of the year or at the beginning of this year, it felt like some of the most productive months of my life.  I was able to make a number of new friends and my network has never been larger.  I’ve been able to be in DC and experience new situations during a week in January and now for a couple weeks in March.  I’m very close to finding a solid job in the new atmosphere here in DC.

I really don’t know what else to say.  I’m sure there will be more updates coming soon.  Like I said… I’m going to try to stay on top of this blog!
