I’ve got a week in between my last job as a Software Architect / Manager with Webshots and my new job with YouService, a small startup. This has given me the chance to catch up on some personal relaxation time doing the things that I enjoy the most. Not having to think about work and letting my mind wander has been great. You just can’t beat sitting on the deck in the sun in Redwood City, CA with nothing to do but try out some of you latest ideas on the laptop while listening to digitallyimported.
Spending 2 hours a day driving into San Francisco wasn’t really conducive to keeping in shape either, so now I’m on a crash course of exercise. Trying to push as hard as the body will take without getting sick. It feels so good to move again though. Hadn’t realized how bad things had gotten until I got back into the gym. I won’t miss the commute at all.
I learned a lot a Webshots, but I think it’s good to change things up every so often. You need to take a step back and look at your life in a different way. I’m ready to start working on some new challenges now.
