Hmm, its been almost 6 months since I've posted an entry. Anyways...

The first year at a new job is always challenging, not to mention having moved across the country. The climate is different. The people are different. Life is different. It's been an adjustment, but I think I have found myself again after all this change.

Miss my mate a lot but I have faith that he will be able to find a good job opportunity here and move to be with me.

I'm going to make time for all the little things that I've been neglecting... lj, website, photography, meeting people.

In an odd mood this week.... A few days ago I learned that someone I met last month and was hoping to get to know better passed away. This happed a few weeks ago, but I didn't find out until this past Tuesday. <sigh>

I feel some sadness, and while I didn't know him all that well, it feels like there is an emptiness in the world.

Looking back at some photos, here's one of him (on the right) with his friend at the OddBall Halloween party this past year in Santa Cruz.

In memoriam.

Current Mood: okay okay

Been a while since I updated my journal.....

I finally feel like I am settling down in both the new job and the new environment.  I think I've been a lucky pup over the past few weeks to have made good friends - and to have a partner to send me love all the way from the east coast.  I do miss him, but in two weeks I'll be making my way there for some catching up on snuggles and play.

I had a fellow pup friend come visit me from Dublin, Ireland... felixkatz.  It was good to finally meet him face to face (nose to nose? :  )  We shopped and did some photography and hottubbed and snuggled and played video games and talked about stuff that pups usually talk about, like the meaning of life and quantum physics and our favorite doggie treats : P.  Had a great time with him.  I wish we could have spent more time together, but imand skype will have to do for now.

Here's one of the photos I took:

I have another pup friend, Spike, who I met when I moved here.  I learned from him today that his father had just passed away :  (    I can't say that I know what it is like to lose someone I love since I have not yet gone through that kind of loss, but I feel for him nonetheless.  He'll be visiting this weekend, and I'll try to help him through some of his grief.

Speaking of quantum physics and death...  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_immortality

I finally found a new job, yaaay... but it's in California, booo.

I'm going to make the move this Tuesday to Boulder Creek, CA where I'll be staying with smashwulf, his mate, and two other furs.  Should be interesting : P  I'll have to shop for a new bed and a new car too. 

It's definitely going to be a change of environment.  My mate in PA can't move with me, but hopefully we'll see each other often enuff that it won't be so bad.  Ok... back to packing.

Ah... it been several weeks since I've posted to LiveJournal.  I've been devoting all my energy to finding a new job and my efforts are finally starting to pay off.  I got a job offer from a startup company in Los Gatos, CA and I'm in the final round of interviews with Google in Pittsburgh, PA.

This past weekend  I stayed with Smash in Los Gatos after my interview there and got to meet his mate, Dragon, as well as his other roomies.  I also got to meet my buddy Ken in person there.  We all had a great time.  It feels good to know that I will have friends in the area if I decide to move there :  ) 

It's going to be a tough call.  I won't know where I will be moving before my lease expires here at the end of the month, so I'm going to move my stuff temporarily to my mate's and my parent's house.

I feel kinda surreal and purposeless, but hopefully this will pass once things stabilize in a couple of weeks.

Ah time for me to prep my resume again.  My company is laying off 450 employees and I was hit.  No worries though, since I am pretty sure I will find a good job in no time.

What's even more annoying though is that my tenants in Vermont have been financially delinquent with rent playments.  We've worked out a plan for them to move out, but they still owe me 2 months rent.  Grrrr!

I spent the nite writing a 3-page legal letter to them, and it took me 5 hrs.  Felt like I lost 5 hrs of my life.  Ugh.

I had a blast at Anthrocon 2007... my first fur con.  Roomed with my mate Maestro, Jaeger Fox, and Viffy Fox.
Also made a few new firends : )


I was also quite impressed with the architecture of the hotel and convention center there.


I will definitely have to go back next year!

My pup friend Jaeger and I went down to NYC 2 weeks ago for Folsom East.... here's a photo.

Decided to skip out on NYC Gay Pride last weekend to spend some quiet time with the mate.  This weekend I'll be driving up to Vermont with my Dad to prepare my rental property for new tenants... and then its down to Pittsburg for Anthrocon, whew.

Hope to see some of you there!

Well... Shrek 3 wasn't bad... but it was basically the same type of material from the previous movies.

Eh... anyways..

Here's my photo of the week, taken in Animal Kingdom down in Orlando, FL.
