Remember me?

Tall, dark, bad at blogging? At your service.

I think that I kept putting off blogging because nothing was really going on. But now something's going on: I got a new job. I'm leaving Horseopolis for South Jersey, to report for the Press of Atlantic City. I start Jan. 20.

No, Holly didn't kick me to the curb. We always figured that the not-really-booming journalism job market meant that once it got reasonably close to the time when she'd begin moving around the country for fourth-year rotations anyway, I should pursue an attractive job in the Philadelphia area, which is where we want to settle. Who knows when the next one would come up?

Well, this job caught my eye, I chatted with the editor, liked what I heard, liked what I saw when I visited, and when they made me an offer today, I took it. I'll try to room with a new colleague or somebody else, or find a cheap studio. And we'll look for a roommate for Holly in Louisville, possibly another med student.

It's an exciting and bittersweet development. Louisville took a few months to grow on me, but I've long since thought of it as home. I enjoy my current job, I have friends and a wonderful home life with my bride-to-be. But I have friends and family back east, I think I'll enjoy my next job immensely, and the long-distance-relationship stint coming up has an end date to it.

So there you go. The blog is back. Discuss.

  1. I'm waiting for you to weigh in on the steroid scandal - I'm shocked, SHOCKED that Dykstra did them, and, hey, if David Bell did them, THEY DON'T WORK!
