A Quick Recap

The last couple of months have been interesting times. A lot of changes have happened in my life. Many for the good.
I have been working at Bluehost for several years now. I like it. Always have. There are some aspects of my job I love, while some I would rather do without. My co-workers are great for the most part. Aside from a the occasional bump in server issues the work load is easily manageable. This has given me plenty of time to learn and grow.
When I started at Bluehost 3 years ago my plan was to make it temporary so that I could go back to school and get my Master’s degree. Temporary is such a transitory word. My initial plan was to take a year off school and then get back to work. But life happens and your carefully set plans often tend to fall through. I can blame so many things for not going back to school right away: the economy went to crap, I had loans to pay off, I wanted to find a wife, Obama became president. But none of them can really take the full blame for not going back when planned. Life is the real culprit. I kept finding new avenues of adventure to pursue. New people to meet and activities to explore. Basically I fell in love with life again. This, of course, makes it a bit more difficult to get back to school. Throw into the mix a car accident and a new car payment, and I now have a few more responsibilities than anticipated.
Adventures in dating have come and gone. I’ve met people, fallen in love, and fallen out of love more times than I care to admit. Some of the dating experiences I would rather have never had. But I know that I have been made better for having them. Hopefully it makes me a better person for the girls that I pursue. And the girl I’ll eventually marry. Only she can say if it does or not.
I recently got promoted to be a Level 2 tech at work. This has been a large change for me. For almost the entire time I was an L1, I worked Monday through Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm. Best. Schedule. Ever. That’s why it took so long for me to decide to try out to be an L2. But the promotion and raise were necessary. I HATE the schedule. I now have to work on Sundays–which sucks the most–and swing shifts, 2:45pm to 11:15pm. I miss my nights and weekends. I miss hanging out with friends late at night. But that’s how life tends to go. At least I have more time for studying now and get to spend more time with my brother. It’s always nice to spend time with my family.
