So it's been a long day...and week so far. I'm bored. We really haven't done anything at work since the last time I came back from CA. It's just been a really long and dull month. I'm the only coder left there, so it's hard to just start up a side project, since one person's side time is pretty small. We're looking for a new person, but you know the selection of people who want to code in schaumburg, il is pretty small!! Especially good people! So no hope of having anyone else to code with anytime soon. I'm thinking of applying for other jobs again. There's one as a UI designer for Metadata and Social Awareness apps downtown at moto. I'm not a big fan of the group, but it might be a fun job. I think I'd actually miss coding though. And then there's san francisco...mmmm....maybe. HP labs? Google/Orkut? I don't know if I really want to leave chicago though. I have so many good family and friends here.
Anyway, that's what's been going on in my head lately! That and a big conversation about love and relationships and being happy. Just trying to figure out what it'll take for me to be happy if things don't get better in that area of my life anytime soon. Certainly not my current job... And I'm still pretty hurt from this whole Ethel thing, so that doesn't help matters.
But I made the best of today and found some interesting papers and posted our new job post everywhere imaginable :) And then I left work and realized it was such a nice day out and went for an awesome run along the lake front!! Man, Chicago sure is beautiful when it's nice outside. Running just made me forget about everything and just totally relax. Well, as much as one can relax with super-strong winds blowing at you :) :) But yeah, it was awesome! And now I'm watching the cubbies :) Go Maddux!!!
