Spending Some Time in LA

October 23, 2009 ~ 10:45am

It has been rather stressful summer for me. Lots of ups and downs both personally and professionally.

Unsurprisingly, I survived the last round of layoffs, but in some weird way I would not have been upset had I been let go. Quite a few "alternate" scenarios played out in my head. I'm an excuse person, I need an excuse to do something and not the other way around. Losing your job would be a great excuse to take some time off and relax or do some exotic traveling (China perhaps?).

Anyways I landed in LA last night. Going to spend some time with my brother and some friends. Would have posted this last night but couldn't figure out airport WiFi. As always I have an excuse for this trip too, there's a band playing that I couldn't see in Detroit. Thought this would be fun.

Everybody needs a "reset" once in a while. Hopefully when I get back I will feel like I'm back at "zero" and not stuck in the red, like the whole world around me.

Look for some updates in the usual places ...

As long as you keep the lesson and forget the experience from those stressful situations, we should be good ... right?

I agree with the 'excuse'. These past few months, I've felt like 'If only I worked with the current set of people, work... I'd be in a totally different place today' all for the lack of my own inaction!
Where did China come from? Aruba or the Bahamas ... not exotic enough?

you'll end up higher than *0* for sure, not lower ... and no red ...

There was a wedding in China that I really wanted to attend, but couldn't due to lack of vacation days.

Wow... reading my first reply and it really does not make sense, but you get it don't you... it does seem like I've eaten a bunch of words!

aw... okay, I guess China could be exotic too.
