I'm still here...


Previous Entry I'm still here... May. 26th, 2008 @ 05:39 pm Next Entry

...though I really doubt if anyone's actually paying attention these days. :P

The fact is, I've been crazy busy. CRAZY. And I haven't been home... and i've been working my ass off. Let me explain my schedule to you as it has been thus far:

First... you know about the 3 weeks in Redmond at Microsoft, right?

well... I was home for a couple of weeks after that... I use the term "home" loosely, as I was at customer sites traveling around the bay area each of those days. So... what's happened since? Let me tell you... in the last month, I have been to:

  • Kansas City, Missouri
  • Tucson, Arizona (for 2 weeks, including a weekend)
  • Redmond, Washington
  • Denver, Colorado.

Plus, i'm scheduled to make trips to LA, and possibly Redmond again... and that puts me into at least mid June.

basically, life is crazy, and I miss friends. If you even care in the most remote way, please leave a comment. :)

I definitely miss hanging out. I've been giving you a bit of space since I know what it's like to start a new job; hopefully we get to get together soon. :-)

Did you get out to the Pima Air Museum or the Saguaro National Park when you were in Tucson?

If you ever go back, both are well worth it.

I'm sorry they're running you ragged! Hopefully you're finding some time for fun in there somewhere, even if it's away from your base of friends...

I know ya probably know all these already...

- make it a habit to work out at the hotel every day.

- make friends with at least one person in each city you visit.

- stay in touch via IM while you're on the road.

- as much as you can, arrange your schedule so you can tack days off at the end of an engagement in a cool city. = you just got free airfare to someplace nice! make some of these trips mini-vacations when you can. invite friends to join you when your work is done. be jet-set fabulous.

- get out of the hotel in the evenings. be around people. parks. cafes. try out a new hobby like drawing or writing or just explore the city on foot.

- get to know each place you visit so you'll feel like a regular there on subsequent trips. look up the city on wikitravel before you head out and find cool things to go see and do.

- talk to strangers. seriously. get to know hotel staff by name too.
