Message 00525: Re: check wasn't cashed ...

if you're financially solvent, go find someplace new and stay there for a few weeks. I went to Crete once when I was in a pre-doctoral funk (my ph.d. program I had enrolled in turned out to be awful so I left before classes started). Later, when I was having real problems with my consulting life doing DOD and enterprise things, I went to Bangkok for a while and wrote a computer column for the bangkok post.

Doesn't have to be international ... even driving across the country for a couple of weeks can do wonders to your outlook.

Do let me know if you want somebody to talk to about this stuff ... (I'm in a what will I do when I grow up angst these days, so I can definitely relate. :)


P.S. tarring up the rest of my irs stuff ... getting close to release.

we should talk ... I'd like to understand a bit more what is going on with
you, if I'm not being too nosy.  :)

are you looking to do a job in dc or have already accepted some new gig?
what's with the "i'll be poor" tweet?
