Flow Chart to my Heart

Last post for the day, I promise. OkC selected me as one of their users to try out their newest feature.

Here is the result: Flow Chart to my Heart

New Job!

I finally got myself a new job about a week or so back. It's with a company that I almost had a job with a few months back, before I decided to go to school for the summer, Rev1 out of Tampa, FL. This, of course, means that I'm moving... once again. As much as I'm looking forward to not living in Illinois any more, I really had hoped to not have to move once again so quickly. As I've said before, I love to travel but I'm really getting burned out by the constant moving of everything I own from one place to another. On the plus side, with this move I already have several friends in the area, so at least I don't feel like I'm starting completely from scratch.

So six days from now I'll start my tip down to Tampa. The trip in total is going to take me about 5 days. In part because I don't really want to drive any more than 8 hours a day and I also have to swing by my parent's house in Michigan to pick up Bear, who's been staying with them since early July. My apartment lease ran out a few days back and it is easier to get friends to let you live with them for a week when you aren't bringing 50 lbs of chaos along with you.

One of the great things about the trip is that it gives me an excuse to drive near where Steph lives again and spend a few hours hanging out with her. I'm not sure if I've mentioned her in my posts before now... although I'm pretty sure I haven't. Steph is an awesome, smart, dinosaur obsessed geek that I met a few months back through OkC. We went on a date a few weeks back and both had a great time. If circumstances were different and we didn't live so far away from each other (a distance which is about to triple) I would be very interested in seeing where things went with her. As it is though, I've gotten a great friend out of it. We are planning on spending a day at Kings Island, outside of Cincinnati, basically pretending to be kids again.

Then, after a quick stop in Atlanta for a night, I'll be in Tampa, FL. One of the main reasons I'm looking forward this move is that it will put me back in a city located right on the water, something I sorely miss from growing up in St. Clair, MI. The combination of high diversity of population and water front city should lead to many great times while I'm there!

Stolen a foot and a half

So I stole this idea for the author of A foot and a half, which you can get to from the link on the right of this page. I highly recommend checking it out since it is very well written and Jesse does a great job of bringing the funny.

The idea that I'm stealing from him is exploring where the "next" button at the top of this page will lead me. I'm doing it in part because I'm a bit curious to see what others are writing and because the only other thing I have to do at the moment is calc homework and I would just rather not do that right now.

So, here goes...

Empty advertisement blog - next

Art Blog - next

3 posts of poorly written poetry - next

Blog from a high school age guy in India. Actually seems like it could be interesting except it is relatively new and he just doesn't have many posts yet - next

Blog dedicated to MMA - next

Poorly translated Japanese Blog - next

Untranslated Japanese Blog - next

Untranslated Korean Blog - next (I'm starting to lose hope of finding anything interesting)

Untranslated Spanish Blog - next

Song of the day blog (might be interested if our taste was at all similar... it's not) - next

At this point I've given up on keeping track of uninteresting blogs - next, next, next... next.

Found one with Regina Spektor drinking vodka as the background for the title. I have to think there is a good chance I would be interested in this one if not for it being written in Russian - next

Went through a few more and I've now given up. I'm not sure how Jesse managed to get so luck as to find an interesting blog so quickly. Most of what I found seemed to be about the obsessions of various teeny-bopper Asian girls and poorly written advertisements.
