So… I’m striking secret resolution #1 (switch jobs) from the record. This is due in no small part to a healthy raise, good managers, and a long lunch with the company owner today. I’m happy with things. I think I’ll buy a place and move out soon. Tomorrow I begin flight training! N96507 out of […]

Significant accomplishments since my last birthday: Made some new friends Purchased my […]
