Mmmmmm, Lovely Cali:
Well... I'm sorry it's been a while since my last post... "but geeze... a lot's happened since then."
First and foremost, I've accepted a job in the fine state of California so I have approx. 6 weeks to sell my house, sell all my shit, fiend a place to live, move the shit I didn't sell out there... Blah blah blah. You know how it is. Anyway, I'll be working the same type of job out there, that I do here. OR stuff, with a side of IT and Business Dev. I'm really looking forward to the move. The company I'm working for is smaller, but the pay is good enough to live on in one of the worlds most expensive cities, LA.
The thing I'm most pumped about is location. I'll actually be living and working in Santa Monica, which is just west of LA on the beach. I'll be surrounded by Soooooooo many mountain. It's gonna be awesome... Check it out here. That's a list of all the peaks in So Cal. that are just a short drive out of LA. THe tallest one on the list is two hours!! Sick right? So I may have been "selfishly uprooting myself" while "leaving friends and family high and dry" (so says my soon to be ex-boss). So I took a poll off all my friends and all my family, it was hard to reach them all being that my dad live in Dubai, and my genius cousin Jim lives in Portland Oregon sans electricity, thank god for the pony express. Anyway, here are the results:
Family: Excited 98% - Pissed 2%.... (-/+ 2%)
Friends: Excited 97% - Pissed 3%.... (-/+ 2%)
Friends/Family who think I'm Selfish
2% - Extremly Selfish never finishes projects.
15% - Slightly Selfish because you never had me over for dinner
13% - Not selfish but hate to see you go
70% - WHo the F cares... it's your goddamn life, get the shit outa here, and go have fun climbing mountains, surfing, and biking year round.
Needless to say that the results to my intensive study makes me feel a lot better better about the move. HA.
SO I say to you Hasta L'vesta Pittsburgh, you're just not pokey enough for me.
