There’s a little under a week left in the year, so I’m going to try to spend some time over the next week getting caught up on all the blog entries I’ve been meaning to write. Some of these topics may have been mentioned on Facebook or previous posts.
Back in October, I got a roommate. My new roommate is my good friend Kysen. I never thought I would have a roommate again. I didn’t think I would live with anyone else again unless I was in a relationship. But Kysen’s lease was ending and his roommate was moving to Astoria, so he asked if he could use my extra bedroom.
I lived alone for over 8 years before Kysen moved in so it was an adjustment getting used to sharing a home with someone again. We’re different people when it comes to cleanliness and organization, but . There were a couple of nights about a week apart where I went out and came home to find a decent amount of stuff rearranged. I ended up liking what he did, but I just wish I could have been a part of it. Thee are times where i still have to ask him where things are because I don’t know where he put them. Overall though, I think we are both happy living with each other.
In November I got a new job. I’m an now a Cloud Software Engineer at Intel. It was about 6 weeks from the time I interviewed until the time I started. It all came about because of a contact that I have on Twitter. I’m working on the same campus that I worked on as a contractor. I love my team and the work I’m doing. We work hard and we have fun socializing and engaging in random nerf gun fights. I’m so much happier than I was before. What a difference being happy with your job can make in all aspects of your life!
There’s been a lot of change in my life, but it’s been for the better. Life is good.
