At about 17:30 UTC on 11 Jan 2006, plus or minus a few minutes, I walked into work for the first time at my current job. Given the irregular length of a year when measured in days, that means today at about 23:17 UTC (plus or minus a few minutes) I will have been working here for a full year. I have set this post to go live at exactly that time.
It has been a good year. I can't believe it has gone by so fast!
What with the being across the country from the family for six months, selling the house, moving twice and everything else that has been going on it has been in some ways a tough year. But in many others it has just been great. Sure, there are still things that need to be worked through. But compared to where we were in the time period between March 2005 and December 2005 it is completely night and day. That last nine months at the previous employer was just horrible. Especially the last three months or so.
I still miss the house in Florida and being an owner rather than a renter... even though this house we are renting is pretty nice and I like it too... and we lost a couple of pets that we loved very much... but aside from those items, I can't think of a single other thing that isn't better now than it was a year ago.
So. One year. Good deal. Bring on the next year.
WOW! A whole year, shit time flies!
Indeed it does.
