Journal Journal: Been a while...

Well, it's been a while since my last entry. I do work for Advent now (which has since been purchased by Titan). The job is a very good match for my skills and interests. In fact, if it weren't for the commute (Santa Cruz to Mountain View - about an hour each way), this job would be ideal. I've also started school again. I looked at all the college credit I have, and I seem to have more than most grad students, just not in the right places. Oh well, I've decided to go for a B.A. in Mathematics. That would probably be the most useful. Of course working full time means that I'll only be able to take a few classes at a time, which in turn means that it'll be a few years before I have my degree.

Journal Journal: Back home

Well, I'm out of the Army and in Santa Cruz. Advent did hire me and I start work in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I'm just getting myself established here in SC. The only hitch so far is getting my car registered. I might have to go to Humboldt to do it (only have to smog it once as opposed to every two years here). We'll see.

On my way from North Carolina, I visited a couple of friends and toured three national parks in as many days. I'll put most of the pictures up on my website when I get them developed (today). It was pretty nice being able to see the country which I had been defending. One can easily lose sight of just how much it's really worth it.

Journal Journal: Musings

Being in kind of a transitional period in my life, I figured that now would be the ideal time to start writing in my /. journal. I've been meaning to for a while, but haven't ever got around to it. Next Friday will be my last day in the Army. I've been in for the last five years as a signals intelligence analyst and Russian linguist. What's next? Well, I've been talking to Advent Systems, and so far, things are looking good. I'm looking for a software job near Santa Cruz. They're looking for a programmer with my qualifications. Seems like a good match. I guess I'll see how things go with that. Here's to wishing myself good luck...
