One of the small islands in the fjords near Ketchikan, Alaska. It’s beautiful, very far away from everything, and expensive to get there. I’m glad I got to go.

Finally got ahold of the recruiter yesterday, talked with him for about 15 minutes, and sent off a slightly modified copy of my resum√©. So now it’s out of my hands. The job description sounded perfect for me. The only real downside is that the job is 14 miles away instead of 4.5, and the commute isn’t a reverse commute like my old commute was. If the light rail system was running, I could use it to get very close to this job. Of course, it’ll be another year until that system’s up.

While looking at ASU’s job board the other day, I saw a position they’d probably never be able to fill. They want someone who has a master’s degree to work part-time for $19K/year, dealing with college students. The benefits were better than you usually see for a part-time job, but the salary is absolutely terrible.

Jo got in touch with me yesterday.¬† I haven’t heard from him in a while, so it was neat to hear what he’s been up to.
