i think a life update for posterity is due: in early march i quit my job with apple of 2.5 years that started out fun but ended up making me more miserable than i’d ever been. it really is a cult. i quit in a very fun way (middle of the day, some theatrics, somewhat mean and very cathartic) and started a new job 3 couple days later.
i’m doing real IT stuff now and it’s a million times better. good coworkers, relaxing when i want it to be and challenging when i want it to be, and a cool environment – i get to do what i love (computers) while being around science all day.
i have some big plans for the summer: cottage trips, poker games, blowing stuff up in the woods, a music festival, and 2 weeks in sweden (i’ve never been overseas!). i’ve been dating a girl that is extremely cute and one of the most intelligent people i’ve ever met. i’m starting to become passable at fixing my bike and have been doing 20km+ rides every weekend. i’m sleeping more, drinking less, and cooking a lot. i got a nice new sound system and have been lying down and listening to albums all the way through. i’m really happy~~
