New Job! Barely any time to post!

Oh man. So I finally landed a full time gig in the Boston area. You are looking at the newest programmer for DoubleTap Games. Today was my third day and I love it. Looks likes I'll have the opportunity to work on some pretty cool things.

For the past nine months I have been trying to get a job in the Boston area. Me and the wife took a chance and decided to move here and tough it out. It wasn't too tough though. I was lucky enough to have steady income from doing off-site work for a couple companies I had connections with. After forty two applications one finally landed me a solid interview.

So if you are looking for a job somewhere you want to be for awhile, don't give up. It may take awhile, but persistence is key. If you don't put yourself out there then you are not allowing yourself to get lucky.

It has been quiet around the ol' blog lately due to work picking up and trying to find a job. Assume that it will be the same for a bit. There are a bunch of drafts I want to flesh out, but they will have to wait. I'll be back.
