for the third year in a row i have picked a bad year to get my shit together i am a working man now. so far i like my job. my coworkers are nice and thoughtful. i've adopted a cat. i like her a lot, though she has a cold, so i have to manage that. i've been working from home so far but i'll be moving soon. right now it's 5:00 AM. my life is changing, which is nice. my life is changing, which is scary. in the new year i will likely be moving to new york, alone. i have friends there, friends of family there, but I alone will make the move. It's not the biggest thing, because NYC to Philly is about 90 minutes, but it feels like a different world. Philadelphia to New York. I've been thinking in dot hack terms.. I meant to finish the series but got sidetracked. I still need to complete that (and Serial Experiments Lain). In MMO terms, 2023 is the server transfer. Philly to NYC. I suppose Act 2 of my life will begin soon. I'm just enjoying what I'm doing here in the meantime.
