Anti-Social Networks

Settle in, grab a drink. This is a lengthy post.

Several weeks ago I made a decision to remove myself from Facebook. I toyed with the idea of deleting my account entirely but I hesitated. I then decided that such a hesitation is probably my gut telling me something so I decided to deactivate instead. I’m glad I listened to my gut for once before it was too late.

New job!

July 2008 began a very stressful time in my life. Many of you know the story. Over the last year and a half I have struggled to keep sane while looking for new jobs, pushing my resume and trying to keep things going at Cyberlink. Today I am glad to announce that I have a contract position with Omnicity Corp. After 90 days if everything goes well they will be converting me to a full-time employee. I am very grateful for this opportunity and very excited to see what is in store for me at Omnicity. Thank you to everyone who has supported me during this stressful time! You are amazing.

    Me: "What was the bee trying to do?"

    GF: "Because it’s mean and it wants to *garbled* at me"
    Me: "I think you need to find new friends for bumble bees"
    GF: "Yea probably."
