  1. Doing research on a potential  job opportunity in Irving, Texas... anyone have any insight into that area??

      Info I have is out of date.  Several years (more than 10) ago an associate relocated to that area from my area and informed me that traffic was much worse, commutes were longer for apartments within his price range and that no one knew how to drive when roads are slick....(e.g. drive slow and steady, no fast stops or fast starts and maintain a safe distance.....)

      I can tell you it’s cheaper than here. I was told to look near the train as it’s a block from the office.

  2. got a dusting of snow outside... strange thing is only the front yard has snow... doesn't look like it snowed in the back. weird.

      Sounds like Mother Nature is up to her old tricks again.

  3. wishing everyone who is celebrating today a Merry Christmas!

  4. hosted my first family Thanksgiving. It was a success... they even took all the leftovers saving me from a Turkey coma.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to you too Edward. The weather is gorgeous with a bright sunny day with temps in the high fifties to low sixties.  

  6. Happy Halloween back at you Edward!  

  7. today was absolutely crazy at work.... it started off with a big lie a few weeks ago.... the lie being, it will be seamless and no one will notice the difference.

    Yeah it generally is. It is my favorite way to go home from my parents house.
  9. MW Part 2? coming soon?

    Time to dust this blog thing off.... I haven't written anything since November 2015. So over the last few months I have come to the decision that moving back to the Maryland area was the wrong decision. While it may help with my career aspirations, I really want to move away. I pretty much have decided if I stay with Big Red (even though our colors changed the nickname sticks) I will either land up in Colorado or Minnesota. While Minnesota would be preferred I am not ruling anything out. I was given a heads up on an opening that is coming and I have been waiting for it to post. When I told a few co-workers my plan/idea... all my old boss could say was I told you so. When I chose to come back East I pretty much ignored the reasons I left which was a huge mistake. My boss new she couldn't talk me out of it as family was weighing on my mind heavily. Now that I am back I miss it. Yes it could get really cold out there. I learned what -50 felt like. Which is why when it is 20 degrees you will catch me in short sleeve shirt with no jacket. I bought a house here.... yeah it was cheaper than rent. The commute of one and half hours to two is killing me and the gas costs are though the roof. Friends... everyone complained I was too far away in Iowa. I moved closer and I am still too far. Despite the fact they go to the outlets 10 minuets from me. My parents seem ok with idea of me moving back. They noticed I am not as happy as I was. Actually a lot of people have. I need to do what makes me happy. My health... I was better off. No issues at all. No chest pain or kidney issues. I will find out Monday what they want to do about my right kidney. 10 months since the stone removal and it drains at a snails pace. I had a scan a few Friday's ago and the contrast was still chilling in my Kidney 45 minutes later. I also have another stone that may require surgery to remove. Here's to hoping I can pull this off.... maybe with relo this time so I am not paying out of pocket.
  10. I came across this on Facebook and it was beautiful and thought I would share. A closeted boy runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams.
  11. came to the realization that I shouldn't have left the MW over a year ago... going to plot my return. Hopefully sooner than later.

      Sounds like there are some issues with co- workers....

      It's not just that (I did get that taken care of though).... I miss it. I miss the people I work with and being in the middle of no where. I could talk freely with some people and had people I could hang out with. All my friends here tell me I live too far, yet the visit the outlets that are 15 minutes or less from me. 

  12. had a really crappy day at work and I no longer trust 4 people I work with... I need things to turn around quick.

      That's such a terrible feeling. Just drains you of all energy. I've had a person like that at work. Since she was second in command, I was at her mercy. Now she's quitting and I'm rejoicing.

  13. When you get a recognition email from the Senior Vice President of Public Sector for your work with a customer... it can really make your day.

      I am well known for my people skills with my customers at work. I have a rapport and relationship with a good majority of my customers who I have never met. Funny thing is I don't want to do sales and I was told this recognition would open the door for any sales job.Today a teammate who is new told my bosses and I she wants to train with me since I have the best customer skills.

      I sure hope you don't get channeled into something that will make you unhappy! Stand strong dude!

  14. D.C. 🏳️‍🌈 pride parade was awesome yesterday. It was the first pride I've ever gone too. The only thing was over 3 hours later parade was still going.

      I'm glad you got to go and enjoyed it!  From all reports it really was an awesome demonstration of PRIDE!
