I haven’t really talked about life here in California much, so hopefully this post will do something to rectify this omission.
I’m really enjoying living here. It’s certainly warmer than back home (although it’s still cold when I go home in the evenings), and although I love snow, I don’t miss snow-blowing the driveway. Work is going really well. My coworkers are great and the work itself is good (although I can’t really talk about it). I’m really enjoying having a real programming job.
Outside of work I haven’t been doing a whole lot. I finally met in person two people I’ve known online for almost two years (the lead dev of Colloquy and his wife) and we’re hanging out a lot—every weekend I’m spending at their house (it sure beats sitting on my computer all weekend) talking, playing games, and watching movies. Tristan hangs out with us sometimes as well. And the past two fridays we’ve all gone out to see a movie at the theaters (last friday was Chronicles of Narnia, and the previous friday was Aeon Flux). Both movies were excellent—I may write about them later. All in all, I’m really enjoying myself here.
The most recent bit of news is that I finally picked up Animal Crossing DS a couple days ago and it’s really fun. I’m thinking about leaving my town borders open during the day while I’m at work so people can come visit me. My friend also got it at the same time as me, so we’re playing together a bit.
If I think of anything else, I’ll post it.
