The Economy Sucks

Well, reality hit this household too, but luckily not too hard. I got laid off a couple of weeks ago. Things have been going downhill at Arrowstreet for several months since all the work there is for private developers. Banks aren’t lending money so developers can’t build so architects can’t work.

However, the news isn’t all bad. Thanks to old CMU connections (who would have thought that the computer programming for architects class would payoff???) I managed to get an interview at Goody Clancy downtown and got a job offer. I start on the 15th!. My TA in said programming class is an associate there involved with the hiring process so he got my resume into the pile at the last second. Thanks Todd!

I am spending these couple of weeks trying to catch up on all those projects at home that have been ignored in favor of playing with Jace. Our lawn has been raked, bathroom cleaned, christmas shopping halfway complete and other “fun” activities.
