Driving

Now it begins, now we start



This morning, I accepted a job offer in Sunnyvale, California doing system adminstration work for Lockheed Martin. I'm excited and terrified at the same time. The pay is fantastic and I get to be near some amazing new friends I have met in the bay area. But I don't know how other people do it... the idea of moving all my furniture and finding a place to live 1,000 miles away (in less than two weeks!) seems overwhelming right now.

Plus, I'm very sad that selecting this choice eliminates all the other possibilities that I've been considering over the last few months: Munich, New York City, Pittsburgh, DC. It's like a wave function collapsing... all the probable states are converging into a single position. The location is now fixed, but the velocity is incredibly fast, and the acceleration is increasing exponentially. I feel like a spaceman falling into a black hole, being stretched thinner and thinner. But it's kind of nice. I think the change will be good for me, I get some distance from my ex, and I love San Francisco.

Hopefully, I'll be on the West Coast before the end of the month. I'd like to temporarily live with a Master and His slave that I know in San Jose, and then find an apartment in Sunnyvale. Maybe I'll be able to sell my house in Denver and buy that condo in SOMA that I dream of. See you all soon at the Lone Star, and wish me luck. Fuck...
