Big Changes Inbound

Greetings Loyal Readers,

A number of big changes incoming for me and probably this blog. I accepted a job with a consulting company doing project management in the same general area that I work in currently. It will probably involve me traveling between DC and other parts of VA and possibly NYC. I'm nervous, but in a good way. I am reminded of the great quote from Ghostbusters, "You don't know what its like out there! I've worked in the private sector. They expect results!" Going to the dark side was something I thought of in the past, mostly for the chance to mix things up and add more travel into the mix, and the money doesn't hurt either.

Big change #2 is that the job is in Washington D.C. So that's a big change as well. I do have some really good friends down there, but I am leaving some good friends up here too. I can't help but think of this movie during this whole process. Anyway, I am coming to terms with my decision and I think it really is the right one. I need to challenge myself and get out of my box, as it were.

I should be in the new job the first week of August and down in DC around Labor Day. This brings us to possible change #3, the blog. I'm contemplating putting the blog on hold until I return to a job that more accurately fits the title of civil servant. I'm also concerned that writing about places I'm visiting for work could get tricky working for a private company. So I'm thinking of going anonymous, which is not like what it is now, more a diary blog. I'm open to thoughts or suggestions.

I'm going to bed. Loong day.

How about "Ramblings of a Private Sector Monkey"?

PLEASE! Don't let the blog die! Emergency Managers in CA rely on your wit & humor.

There's only one thing to do. You gotta take this blog underground, like the Kumite.

Alright, so you can't post anything about your job anymore. Let's be honest and say that it really wasn't that interesting anyway. I mean, what has happened in your time as a civil servant in MA........yeah, I got nothing either. So just continue writing about the random shit you write about now, leaving out the few vague work references and tell us about all the public figures in DC and the dirty, dirty things they do at night. God knows you will be out enough to see it all anyway.

what about making it a private blog and having to invite people to read? not ideal, i suppose, but i rely on the ramblings for a cheery addition to my day... besides, you'll always be a civil servant at heart. just think about it as helping in a different way.

If you stop writing this blog I will kill myself. 'Nuff said.
