Greener Pastures

I have accepted a job offer from a local company for a position working in Unix system administration, getting experience with all those things with which I need experience, making more money, and returning to the 9-5 lifestyle.

My current employer is great and all, but I feel like I'm wasting away, working for them. The crazy amounts of time off, and "working offline," that goes on is turning me into a genuinely lazy person. I feel like I'd be doing myself a disservice if I don't work in a place that challenges me.

That said, I'll be starting my new job in early October, and I'm thrilled to death about it.

Congrats man. Does it cut down on the commute as well? I know that was a drawback of the old job.

Awesome, man. Does that mean there's an opening for a job where I can stay home most days? :P

The commute is much easier. It'll be about forty five minutes on the bus, which I intend to use whenever possible, or about twelve minutes by car. It'll be great to get back into natural exercise by taking the bus.
