Random Thoughts #45

--I really, really hate changing jobs. I hate the job search process, the uncertainty of what I might be getting into, the fact that I might need to move, etc. However, I'm coming to the realization that I may be reaching the end point in my current position. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to stay aligned with where the company is going or how it's being managed. My most respected peers and colleagues are no longer there. It's been almost six years. I think it's time.

--For the last couple of months, I've been trying to convince my long-time friend Tim to consider moving in with me for a while. He's recently made some very positive life and career changes that will allow him to pursue his goal of becoming a freelance artist; however, his current living situation isn't well-suited to that goal, so I've offered my little abode as an interim step in his road to fame and fortune. I think I've almost convince him, so stay tuned.

--Tonight I'm going to Jesse's wake/visitation with a few friends. I'm not really going for closure or for any type of post-mortem spiritual connection. My sole purpose in going is to show his family that the gay community in which Jesse lived and socialized also loved and cared for him. I only wish we'd do a better job of supporting each other while we're alive.

--I'm thinking about making a list of things I want to do and/or experience during 2007. Not a list of resolutions, but a fun list, like taking a camping trip, taking a class of some kind or traveling somewhere. I'm often talk about doing fun things, but never do them for one reason or the other. Maybe making a list and making it public would get me more motivated to do them. More to come on that...

I hope a visit to NYC might be on that 2007 list. :-)

I like your last thought. That is much better than a resolution because of wanting to experience things instead of doing this or that. Great post and hope you are well.
