It's been a long time... How have you been?

I think the quote from GLaDOS is appropriate for any return after a long time.  The Portal villain certainly reminds me of my favorite things of the video game.  After all, it's all for science.

That's  not what I came to babel about this time.  To be honest, I was starting to wonder if I would ever return to this blog, or if it had faded into the ether of my distant past.  I find myself writing more in a book these days than on the Interwebs, but I don't know why.  Perhaps I don't always want to share my thoughts with the world first.  I guess I could do that, but digital permanence and all.

I recently have had a few things change.  I went through one of the hardest break ups I've ever experienced, and a couple days later I lost my job.  I didn't care about the job though;  it seems that SDETs are in high demand around these parts, and I have no shortage of options.

I recently started thinking about moving to Portland.  I love Seattle, and it would be hard for me to move on from here, but a breakup followed by loosing my contract, and finally a call from some recruiter who might offer you a way better job than you had... it all seems to feel like it was meant to be.  Funny enough, just the breakup made me think of leaving town to get a fresh start.

Anyway, maybe that's a thing... maybe I'm just babbling again... whatever it is, I might have some changes around the corner, but in the mean time, I have more time on my hands.  Maybe I'll just start blogging again for a while?   time will tell.

Later,
