The elections last night were complicated. Both sides are feeling victory and loss today. The hardest losses for me to absorb seem like in hindsight, were an obvious outcome – Republicans won in the very red states and promise more of the same. Clearly no one is happy with “the same”, but people don’t like change of values even more, and these races were made about (perceived) values and nothing to do with leadership, so we will keep on keepin on.
Shannon gave me a shout out this morning on her radio morning show as a “long time listener”. Inside joke, it’s a country station. 😉 still, they like to chat about our dates online and it’s slightly weird.
I was walking to school. The high school was about five to seven miles from my home but it was a beautiful spring Colorado morning and it felt like the only logical choice to do with my time. My car was broken down, somewhere unknown in Albuquerque, New Mexico with little hope to ever get it back. My mom was pissed off that I had lied to her about driving to Texas to see my ex (first) girlfriend who I was still trying to win back and who never failed to break my heart every time I made an effort. This time, it was her prom. She asked me to come to hers and despite my car breaking down in the middle of the New Mexico desert, I scraped my remaining money together to get a one-way bus ticket to still make the event. Right after the prom, the inevitable played it’s part and I was once again left heart broken, this time stuck in Plainview, Texas.
First (real) snowfall in the new house since I moved in 9 months ago.
The views from the 46th floor at work.
Graham Colton performing live at the Blue door, really like the guys voice and style.
I started at Devon back in June 2012 but we only got to move into our new offices in August, two months later. I’ve finally got my office kinda the way I like it. I am on the 46th floor, looking over brick town. I can see my old office when I was running Outland Design in brick town a decade ago.
It’s not bad. I’d eventually like to get something better, but this will do great for right now. Close enough for Nate to come over and swim and I can start to get all my things out of storage and collect my possessions back into a living space again.
Nathan, obviously a fan of Sara Palin
Today was 10-10-10. I wanted to take some kind of special photo on this day. This seemed like as good as place as any.
