I'm not dead yet!

Many things have happened since I last posted... Some good, some bad.

In short:

- I was let go by Mythic back in February. I've been on the hunt for a job since but the job market in the DC Metro area for an IT Manager/Project Manager/etc is pretty slim right now. Basically I'm too skilled for a grunt position and not skilled enough for others. Plus the lack of training in the gaming industry (read: lack of certifications and schooling) has really hurt me in some ways. But I have a few leads, mostly with the federal gov't in some fashion, so we'll see.

- I've been able to spend more time with my girlfriend, though. No relationship is perfect and they all take effort. If not then you're doing something wrong. =) But I don't know of anyone else I'd rather spend time with then her... So we must be doing something right. All I know is that she is my best friend and that I love her.

- Most of my updates are over at Facebook. Although I'll probably start using this space again for longer posts and thoughts and just link them there.

- I've also got a Flickr page, too. I have a new camera and am trying to take pictures of some of the various cool things that I do.

- I'm days away from being an official member of the 501st Legion. I am still waiting on the armor for my Snowtrooper Commander, so I decided to go with something quick and easy for membership purposes. So I applied as an Imperial Crewman. From this I can do a other costumes like a Naval Trooper or Tie Pilot without much difficulty.

- I am also being dragged kicking and screaming (not really) into the Colonial Marine (from the movie Aliens) that most of the peeps do, too. I'm doing just a basic grunt. I should have my armor, BDU's, etc, ready in a few months.

- Not working a gazillion hours a week has done wonders for my health. I'm down about 20 pounds from where I was when I was working and I feel wonderful. I'm looking at joining a local health club to help with this even more.

That's about it in a nutshell... Have a few things coming up that we'll be doing... The Video Games Live concert... Shoreleave... Maryland Renaissance Faire...

Should be an interesting time.

There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.
