So, it was seven years ago tonight that I started my blog. Since then, I have posted over 587 entries (I say over because some have been deleted, but the current number of entries, not including this one, is 587) containing just shy of 171,000 words. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost interest over the past two years or so. Some changes are coming, I am sure of that, but I don’t see an end. Yes, few people blog anymore, (and I seem to be becoming one of them) but I was never one to follow the crowd. I can certainly see a 10th anniversary celebration in three years.
In other news, April is now the second month to contain zero posts (Nov 2009 was the first). May could well have suffered the same fate if not for the Blogversary.
In jobs news, I had an interview today that went rather well, have a phone interview Tuesday as well. Still no response from the Sandusky or GR interviews last month.
In an attempt to improve my job chances, we decided to move closer to where they seem to be, and have been living in Grand Rapids (Comstock Park, to be exact) for nearly three weeks now. We moved in on May 8, having gotten the keys on the 7th and signed on the 3rd. It does seem to be helping, based on the two interviews I mentioned above. It is also nice having so much more around to do and see than we had in Big Rapids.
Jenn and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary (of “going out”) on May 13 by going to Kobe, which we thought would be like Genji but wasn’t as good. We also celebrated our 6 month anniversary (since the wedding) on April 10 by making a meal at home, of shrimp scampi and sautéed vegetables (note: the OS X spell checker put in that accent mark itself).
Apple’s iPad is certainly making some noise. I have played with one and though I was originally in the “what the hell is it?” camp, I have to say it is pretty awesome. Yes, it has its flaws like no multitasking (until fall) and no user accessible file system, but it does 90% of even what I do on a computer. I can see it covering everything a person needs for several people I know.
In other news…
Yeah, I lead a rather boring life. I wish I could think of more but I can’t right now.
So, hopefully I will have some good news to post soon, but until then I am out.
