Time to close book.
Last friday, I got laid off; so where some of my colleagues. I trust it is for the best and I wish my former employer the best of luck. I had a ball this past year working with some wonderful people on an amazing product. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to belong to such a team and will fondly remember my time there.
What a way to wipe a todo list!
After updating my resume and doing a gut check; I will be seeking new employment.
For the past year, I have been immersed in a java/actionscript environment and have gained lots more perspective, even respect, for each for how powerful the combination can be. Having decided nothing yet, I hope I can veer, maybe, towards ruby/actionscript and focus on data reporting and visualizations this time.
The future is bright, my family and I are as blessed as ever and I am anxious to see what comes next.
