Hey, it's been awhile. I find myself here again for the same old reasons- procrastinating from something, feeling a bit moody. Trying to clear my head, trying to ground myself by simplifying my story.
I moved to Burlington VT last month. I've made a habit to visit the lake every day to see the sunset. I live with an old friend who travels a lot, and work on a desk in a kitchen that we keep stocked with airplane cookies (biscoffs!) and coffee, sometimes tea, sometimes cream.
I moved here to take advantage of a remote worker's grant, but complications have made it so that I don't qualify for it, and now a grumpy cynical voice has been visiting me to ask- "Why the fuck did you move here?" That's alright, it's a learning experience.
I work for chess.com now, which is nice. It's a big enough company where if I was to link the URL to it no one would care if the analytics showed it came from Hubski, which was how my previous employer found my account (how embarrassing.)- but that's alright. I've always had a naive thought that I could put a lot of myself into the internet and people either find me endearing or not care. Sometimes it works.
Also, other than a pair of jeans and a coat, I haven't worn men's clothes since I've moved here. So that's a thing.
