stuck in a rut

I've been stuck in a rut. I don't think anything substantive will happen on the job scene until the new year. My wife and I put earnest on a home we adore, but I doubt the job will come before the earnest period is up. We've been kind of getting down on ourselves, and then yesterday, as we were whining to each other, we snapped out of it. We got ourselves motivated and got right back into the swing of things. This morning had SUCH a different feel to it than other mornings. It's been good.

In the meantime, I've taken to transcribing my mission journals from paper to computer and adding in afterthoughts. It's fun and embarrassing at the same time. I'll have to post a few of the choicer ones with commentary.

Hooray for new posts!

Hi, don't be too frustrated by this job stuff. If you're willing to move out of state or work on something not in your specialty, there's still a lot of opportunities out there. I started my current job in Febuary thinking that I'll be programming GUI for years to come, but now I'm neck deep in microcontrollers and I/O modules, so you'll never know why might happend if you look for job opportunities outside of your self defined box.

I spent the better part of August and September searching for jobs outside of Utah-- starting with France. A friend of mine is searching for jobs for me from Texas to South Carolina. I've applied for several different companies in New Mexico.

Don't assume I have a self defined box. :P

PS - It was good to hear from you, Frankinator. :)

I'm not sure what you're looking for now a days, but if you're still into controls and stuff, check out www.tac.com. I might be able to give you a referral if you see any openings that you like. Can't promise anything, but if you are interested...
