Wow... I've been at my job now for four weeks. I guess the fact that I made it this long means that I've been able to adapt back to the routine. This week had a few fun times as there was a lot of collaborative discussion about how to build stuff. Sometimes that's more fun than actually writing code.
This week I got an invite to a Microsoft conference in Vegas, scored a cheap flight, bought a ticket for Blue Man Group, and just today learned of an opportunity to do some writing for MS. It's neat to have "access" to Redmond even if I can't talk about everything I hear at first (NDA and all). I love writing, I love teaching, and I wish I was doing more of it.
But time just keeps flying by, and I feel like I'm missing something. Actually, I know exactly what's missing, there just isn't a ton I can do about it at the moment. I won't go into that here, but suffice it to say that I'm enduring a lot of frustrating situations lately in various parts of my life.
So there you have it.
