After an exhausting search, both online and in person, we found a place this past weekend that we’re now waiting approval on. It’s in Concord, CA, and in a nice quiet apartment complex. The unit is completely remodeled (literally from the floor up – only the structure remains the same), and is close to the BART station.
As this move gets closer I am getting a little more excited, a little more nervous, and looking forward to a new start for a lot of things.
Here’s to new beginnings, and to the awesomeness of the bay area!
A few weeks ago, I accepted an offer from a company in San Francisco. By accepting, I also agreed to pick up and move to the bay area. Not a small move, but I’m looking forward to the new experiences, the new challenges, and the change in scenery.
One of the things that excites me most about taking this position is that I’ll be working closely with two people I worked with for years at Citrix. Two people I highly respect, and greatly admire. But, does that make it the right choice?
I’ve weighed the pros and cons to this, and while there is most certainly some drawbacks to all of these changes, I believe in my heart that I’m making the best choice for me, right now, and I think that’s the most important part of it all.
The hardest part of this transition will likely be leaving Citrix. I am comforted knowing that I’ve made some great friends while working at Citrix, but not having a daily interaction with these people will be the biggest change to get used to.
I have a lot to be thankful for, and aside from the love and support of my family, I am thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given, and a career I am excited to wake up to every day.
Goodbye today … Bring on tomorrow!
