So long 2012

2012-2013-2It has been an interesting year for sure. Lots of changes in life. Lots of new friends crawling out of the woodwork, putting some good friends sadly to rest. Loss of a job yet new vistas opening up before me and some promising prospects in sight for 2013. Relationships ending, but new people entering my life. Acquaintances choosing to become a larger part of my life and become inner circle friends. All in all, a very good year if taken as a whole.

We shall see if this trend continues into 2013. I sure hope so!

 

Now for those of you who don’t know the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne

Otterbox interview

Well, today I had a very good interview. I interviewed at Otterbox. Their office was very interesting. Very different from any offices I’ve interviewed at around here. I think the interview went well. They are looking for an IT person for internal white glove IT support. Right up my alley with my departure from Volt aka HP aka VoodooPC. I’m very excited and should hear back from them this week.

 

On a side note, I filed for unemployment last week on Friday. However, today I got 5 letters from our state government. Such inefficiency.

Here were the letters:

  1. Note that I should apply for Pell grants
  2. Confirmation letter that I had to sign and send back
  3. PIN for applying
  4. Reminder to apply every two weeks
  5. Confirmation of my wages earned

While the pin should be sent separately, the rest could have been combined to save postage. Oh well. I guess the letters got here so that is what matters.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to one and all. Happy holidays if you prefer. It has been an interesting year for me. The culmination of a relationship as well as a job. Current job prospects I have on the table for next year. Old acquaintances that have become close friends. Overall 2012 has been a year of many changes for me, both good and bad. Here is to 2013 and change! To new friends and new experiences. To love lost and new possibilities to come.

Alternative employment

super+fast+computers+of+the+future[1]So my current job is going to end. Therefore, I am back on the hunt for another job. As such, I’ve been considering jobs that I would never consider normally. I’ve considered administrative assistant positions, bank teller and others. I’ve even considered the Geek Squad (though this is more in line with my usual work). Do I really want to be doing computers the rest of my life?

 

I suppose so. Computers are needed everywhere and, except in an Amish community, they are the future.

 

My Brydge came!

 

It finally arrived! I got a keyboard worthy of my iPad. Expect more posts. For some reason I just feel better doing it on my iPad. When my cheap keyboard (and honestly what did I expect?) broke, my blogging stopped. I plan on doing posts on ALL blogs at least once a week. Thanks for hanging in there!
