Living life between GA and CA

I left Georgia Tech at the end of May. I was a temp there, and you can't be a temp for more than a year without a 30 day break. My year was up May 28th.

Fortunately, I was able to find something else. June 2nd, I started with Earthlink. I took a position as a Senior Site Manager for Pasadena System Administration. Basically, that means I manage the group of sysadmins who manage the server farm in Pasadena.

The question of geography is a bit odd, because Earthlink's headquarters is in Atlanta, where I live, the job is in California. Since I started I've been commuting back and forth: I spent the first three weeks of June in CA, the next two working from the HQ office in Atl, and now I'm back in Pasadena until next Friday. The basic idea is to split my time between CA and GA until we can sell our house and move.

So right now I'm sitting in a Starbucks in Sierra Madre using T-Mobile's HotSpot wireless service. (I'll have more to say about that in a different post.

At any rate, life is little up and down right now. It's kind of lonely out here in CA, and when I've been back in GA, life has been filled up with painting and work. Still, it's a new direction, and that's a good thing.
