Our new apartment

May 16, 2004 at 09:17 PM

Christina and I went to Dallas this past weekend apartment hunting. We had been looking at AMLI apartments in Austin, so that's where we started in Dallas. We found one we liked pretty quickly. It's called AMLI at Bishop's Gate and it's right down the road from my future work. It looks much nicer in person. It's not too new, but it's mostly made up of red brick (our first floor apartment will be... Continue reading

I hate kids

May 12, 2004 at 11:04 AM

You're a senior in high school. You've been an idiot all year and with 2 weeks to go you decide you'd like to graduate. I'm not going to spend my time or take away from my time with other students to teach you a year's worth of material. Pay attention and put out some effort or you're not worth my time....

I got a job!

May 11, 2004 at 09:49 AM

I haven't posted much lately, I've got a lot going on right now so I've been busy. Fortunately, most of it's been caused by good news. On Friday I received TWO job offers. After well over a year searching for a "real" job with no success, I got two freaking offers in one day. And both of them were good opportunities. Periscope here in Austin offered me early Friday morning. Great location, great people, good... Continue reading

Job news

May 05, 2004 at 09:33 AM

I finally heard back from Periscope yesterday, and with good news. They want me to come in tomorrow and meet some people. I sure hope that means they want me for the job and just want to get to know me more. I'm excited. I liked the company and my interview went well with them, so hopefully it'll be a good match. I also heard from someone else within Whole Foods yesterday. When I was... Continue reading

Good news, bad news

May 04, 2004 at 09:36 AM

The good news is that I talked to the secretaries in the front office this morning and I get three pay checks over the summer. That's pretty great, I get paid for doing (more) nothing. The bad news is that sure takes some of the pressure off me about finding a job. I don't have to worry about being unemployed till like August. Why is that bad news? Because without urgency, I'll probably end up... Continue reading

Four more weeks

May 03, 2004 at 09:26 AM

I haven't really taught anything in a long while, except Flash to the Web kids but that's easy. I've now exhausted all my flash knowledge so before I can lecture them on anything else I'm going to have to learn it. That sucks, it was much easier to just wing it based on stuff I already knew how to do. The CS I kids are just reviewing for the rest of the year. It's good... Continue reading

Home alone

May 01, 2004 at 03:01 PM

Christina is at her parents' for the weekend so it's just me and Reesey here at the apartment. Not too much to do this weekend, watch TV, mess with my new TiVo, and make some changes to this site. I'd like to have the templates all done and the rest of my pages set up by the end of tommorrow. I wanna get the basic set up all finished so I can start making changes... Continue reading

I got TiVo!

April 30, 2004 at 08:33 AM

Since I apparently have been rejected from three different jobs in the last two days, I decided to cheer myself up and buy electronics. So I went home and got all my Best Buy gift cards and certificates (50 bucks worth) and went down to the store and bought myself a TiVo DVR. I've been wanting one forever, but had always talked myself out of it. I had a TV tuner on my PC so... Continue reading

Strike one...

April 29, 2004 at 09:28 AM

It's only 9 a.m. and it's already been a pretty rough day. Just about every person, teacher and student, asks me if I heard about the jobs yet when they walk by. I tell them no, hadn't heard yet, but supposed to today. But that's a lie, I have heard I just don't want to tell them. I got the call from Whole Foods yesterday afternoon. I thought it was going to be good news,... Continue reading

I'm losing it...

April 28, 2004 at 11:31 AM

I'm checking my email every 2 minutes wondering if I'll hear any news on Whole Foods, Management Insights, or Periscope Holdings. I'm so worried I'll strike out on all three.... Continue reading

New virus outbreak?

April 28, 2004 at 11:26 AM

I've gotten two virus-infected emails at my UT address today within an hour of each other. One from someone I know but haven't spoken to in years and another from a random UT address. They were a little different but both had a lot of similarities in both the subject line and the body. Be on the lookout if you receive any emails with attachments (you should always be alert jackass!)... Continue reading
