— Neal Stephenson, “The System of the World”
Living situation: three months in with two new roommates. I’m feeling a little isolated… which is weird because I feel that I was invited to move into this space. Maybe they’re having second thoughts. More on this later.
Work Situation: one year in, no change in pay, no change in position, no additional responsibilities, no additional respect. There are some interesting opportunities revealing themselves over the horizon but nothing is set in stone. More on this later.
Social Situation: a few more friends, a few more problems, still no one I feel close to in this city. Big surprise - more on this later.
Relationship Situation: no significant other - not even close. Still haven’t had more than two or three dates with a single woman since spring of 2010. There are, however, some fascinating things afoot:
- Code name ‘Sacramento’
- Code name ‘Ringmaster’
- Code name ‘New Wheels’
- Code name ‘Magnet’
… and a few on-going OkC users I’m excited about.
