The Great Migration

08 November 2007

The past few months have been quite a ride for me. The path I’m heading down now is nothing like what I even imagined it would be a few months ago. Come Friday my time at BlueTie, Inc will end after 1 year, 7 months and 28 days of generally enjoyable employment.

I’m heading to Google in Mountain View, California for three months on an internship with the Docs team. I’m a pretty hardcore AJAX and Web2.0 developer from my time at BlueTie and my own projects. Going to Google is like making a pilgrimage to the holiest of web app places. I’m quite excited.

And then what happens? Back to school. School has been on the back-burner for too long now. I’ve concentrated on too many other things. I’m still pretty much on track to graduate reasonably on time – so that’s not the issue. The issue is I just want to be done. I really like my Software Engineering courses – but I like actually working so much more. I’ve found trying to do them both at the same time to be a futile effort. I can hopefully be able to wrap up school in about a year and a half or so and then head wherever my heart and career may take me. I’m hoping that isn’t Rochester.

Of course, what’s to say that doesn’t get interrupted again? I always have a number of things going on in the background. One of which might just change my direction again. It’s fun to have options. :)
