I am still trying to figure out if this blogging thing is really worth the amount of time it takes to do (I guess it takes about 10 minutes, so who cares, right?) I keep thinking that it will be, but so far no evidence of that. I suppose if I were writing about something useful or interesting, somebody else might want to read it :)

I am winding down things at my old job. Feels weird really. I feel sad for leaving it all behind after having worked so hard to create it. But then again, it was depressing watching it all fall apart before my eyes and fighting every bit of it along the way. Now, at least, I can leave while it is somewhat in tact and feel like I did what I needed to do for me.

I am very nervous about life on the other side. Worried that I really am not qualified for the new job like I thought in my interview. Worried that the new job will be too demanding on me and impact my family again. Worried that my new boss is as scary as I suspect she is - not to metion that people are coming out of the woodwork to confirm this! And lastly, worried that it will all be one huge mistake and I will have to start my search over again. But that is all part of life's big gamble - win some and lose some. Time will tell.

Life is good :)

I quit my job last week and man does it feel good. Unfortunately, I still have to deal with all the BS for another 3 weeks. I was having a hard enough time getting motivated to do it and now I really am not motivated to do it at all. The best thing happened today though, my now former boss wanted to tell me about a coworker throwing me under the bus - again - and I was able to honestly say "I don't give a f*&#$!" It was great - very satisfying. A little immature, I'll give you that, but man it felt good.

Man, this business never ceases to amaze me

So after my last entry, I get a call from the people that had me convinced I was no longer employable, offering me a job. Go figure. So now we go through the dance to determine if this really makes sense for us to do. On the up side, it is nice to know I have options. On the downside, I hate changing jobs. I am really just in the mood to do nothing for a while. Wish I could afford that. Maybe next lifetime.

So Seattle continues to be a high-tech, start-up hot bed. The number of people I know leaving the old brick and mortal companies for start-ups is on the rise again. I just hope that not so many completely crash and burn this time around. I personally love start-ups. I love the lure of the big payoff. I love being everything that has to do with Recruiting and then some. It is really awesome. I love that kind of passion for my work. I just hope that I can find it again myself soon.
