Scatter Brained

I have been very scatter brained over the past few days. I have started and stopped several pieces that I intended to post here, including a discussion of a piece I read by Gene Kranz and my thoughts on the bombing of Hiroshima. I have drafts of the beginnings of both of these posts written, however I have not had the mental stability to write them. To be honest I am too excited. On Friday I turned in my two week notice at my current job because I have accepted a position at El Paso corporation. Monday will be my 11th anniversary with UCS, and while I am somewhat sad to be leaving behind 11 years of work, it has become clear to me that going elsewhere is the only way to advance myself.

I am very excited about the new job as I am going to work with a good group of guys whom I already know (however my new boss has already referred to me as a minoin, which might have some consequences down the line). I am nervous about the new job because there is going to be a heck of a learning curve for me, as I am going to be doing technical work that is a few steps beyond stuff I am doing now. I know I will be able to handle it, but it may cut in to my productivity here.

You're going to do great! Don't worry at all. Seriously, when you talk about this it feels all shiny and sparkly and good.

Best always,
