DC = Pretty Amazing

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

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:  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 2008 @ 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 my West Loop apartment after living there for 3 1/2 years.  All my stuff was packed up, shipped off and moved to storage in the cornfield state.
  • I’m now in Washington, DC, and I had to stay with friends for a time while looking for a job.  The last gig was over on January 31st and I was looking until June 15th.
  • I then got a gig with ServInt as Technical Support, which was a really great atmosphere. The staff was awesome and they really have a lot going for them with the opening of the new LA Data Center.
  • I now work for a non-profit organization in Washington, DC, which is making gigantic strides in assisting with the passage of the new American Clean Energy and Security Act.

Anyway, 2009 has been a pretty decent year. Bring on 2010! I hope to update again before Dec 31, however.
