People do many different things to cope with stress, loss, and "bumps in the road". How do you handle stress and hard times?
Music. Find an earworm and let it ride. Presently I am dealing with Janine's return to the States by sticking Alizée's Moi... Lolita on repeat. Music GO!
In other news, I figured I'd hop back to Vox and see what's up. The posting UI has changed some, but I can't really point at any one thing and say "that's new". Oh - there's an "embed" button that I've not seen before. Neat.
Okay, I'm going to share some photos from the recent past here in Iceland.
Anyway. Enough photos.
Iceland is great. The job is entertaining and interesting, but it's not very challenging. I'm doing web work, but not the kind of work that I was doing at Six Apart - no scaling, nothing that really pushes me to find tough solutions or look at things from a low level perspective. It's kinda sad, that's one thing I really enjoyed at 6A - there were challenges to be solved, problems to find solutions for.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I'm doing good work and people are happy with it - EVE players and managers alike! It'd just be nice to do something that required a little more brainpower. Oh well. Maybe when I go to Atlanta there will be more challenging work.
Current plans put me out there next summer sometime. The details are still being worked out, of course. Fingers crossed and all that.
Oh, I'll be back in the Bay Area sometime in October, it looks like. I'll come by the office and say hi sometime. :)
Ta ta for now!
