So, where was I?
The last time I wrote here, I was on the road between Atlanta and Seattle. I had actually intended to live blog the trip, but then I didn’t, and once I got here I was caught up in the whole process of settling in and finding a job and all those other mundane things that take up all your time and attention, and the next thing you know, four months have gone by.
We’re pretty well settled in, at this point. Both kitanzi and I found jobs fairly quickly; she has a temp gig in Bellevue with dumb hours, and I found a permanent posting at a company in Seattle, so we’re doing okay there. Both of us are enjoying living in an area where transit is actually useful, and as a result we’re only driving the car on the weekends most of the time, and ended up selling the second car that we’d left behind in Atlanta. Housemate situation with runnerwolf is also going well; the apartment is a bit cramped for our liking, but we expected that, and when the lease is up we can look for something with a bit more space if we wish to continue sharing quarters.
I’m at the point where i’m ready to start being more social again, now that my routines are starting to coalesce.
The last couple of weeks, I’ve been working on redesigning my personal website for the first time since 2001. The old page was aesthetically antique, and it was time for a refresh, so I set up a brand new WordPress installation and have rehomed my blog there. I will still be cross-posting entries on LiveJournal and Dreamwidth, and I encourage people to comment in whatever place is most useful and convenient to them. I’m hoping to do more long-form blogging in the future, and also be more active about promoting my various projects.
As of right now, I expect to be at the following conventions, if you’d like to see me:
July 5-6, Nerdtacular 2013, Salt Lake City, UT
October 25-27, OVFF, Columbus, OH
November 8-10, OryCon, Portland, OR
I’ll add more if and when plans are made.
So, that’s what’s been going on. What’s going on with you?
