Well, since the job search has been so darn crappy over here in Tampa.Â I had to make a few calls to a friend who put my resume in front of the right people.Â This started the interview process and I got a job.Â Unfortunately, it’s located 3hrs east.Â Yes, the east coast of Florida.Â Boca Raton.Â I’m not entirely happy with having to move for a job.Â But sitting here waiting to find something just isn’t paying the bills.Â It’s all fun and games until the money runs out— and I’m just about out.Â I’ve been trying to stay positive about this move even though Boca has been hit by hurricanes.Â West Palm Beach is approx. 40mins north.Â Ft. Lauderdale is approx. 20mins south.Â Miami is about 40mins.Â Key West is just about 4hrs.Â Oh and hey, the Bahama’s is 90mi off the coast.Â Homestead is about an hour.Â So if I ever want to go watch some CSS superbike races the track is close.
The company I’m going to work for sounds really good too.Â This will be the first time in my career I’m able to get some sort of bonus.Â Yea, I know, it’s the little things in life that get me excited 😐 Â The environment seems pretty cool.Â They’ve labeled all their offices and conference rooms with Monopoly properties.Â I’m not sure if I should read too far into this or what! :DÂ My one friend and old co-worker works there, so I’ll be able to hang out with him.
Also, my GF is moving with me.Â She doesn’t really have a lot going on over here anymore so she says it’s not a big deal to just pack up and move.Â Everyone seems to think it’s a big-deal, and it probably is and should be.Â But it’s just like tomorrow, or whatever– Sure, she’s moving with me and we’ll be living together.Â I just don’t see the big deal.Â We’re together for a reason and we really enjoy each others companionship.Â The apartment is big enough that if we start WWIII we can be separated in neutral corners until the dust settles 😀 Â Obviously I hope things don’t come to that.Â But it’s going to be a fun and exciting journey.
My only worry is being able to afford this apartment and the hurricanes.Â Tampa has been quite lucky, Boca has not.Â They’re still rebuilding from last years hurricane season.
