I still don't know where I am going to be working 3 months from now. My internship with IBM ends in December and I have not heard anything about an offer. So I've been looking around, and it's interesting, I've been applying to the big chip making companies but have not heard anything back from them, so I figured the next best thing is to try to stay here in FL, there aren't many choices when it comes to Computer Engineering, I heard from one of the two main software engineering companies here in Florida, I finally got through their screening process, I have a second interview with them soon. I also got a second interview with a big financial institution in New York City (to work at their IT department), their office is right in Downtown Manhattan and that's where I am going on Thursday for my interview, on one hand it would be extremely awesome to live in a city like New York, but it would be so expensive to live there, and do I really want my family to be raised in NY? We'll see how it goes, everything is up in the air, the idea of having good baseball, good restaurants and museums and being in the capital of the world does sound appealing, but staying home in FL with all my family and friends also sounds good. Plus Minnesota is still not out of the question...what would you do?

I just don't think I could raise my family in NYC. I love the city, don't get me wrong, I just don't want my kids to grow up there. That is me, though, and I live in the country.

However, my hubs and I make huge financial sacrifices to live where we do because of our kids. Lots of land, low/non-existant crime, great schools, family.

That is what works for our little fam, and you and Martha just need to go with your gut and find out what you all want at the end of the day.

Um, is it even a question? Minnesota, you fool.

By the way, I just saw a picture of Dubrovnik. I can't believe it's been six years since our deployment. It seems only like five. Or maybe six.

What's that? a city in Croatia?
It seems like a lifetime ago..

wanderer said...

Yeah, that's the capital. We were only there once.

Jose said...

I thought the capital was Zagreb.

btw. I have some pics from Dubrovnik too, those were the days, heh?

And what's with you talking smack about the Nat. Guard on mySpace? Don't make me go to Chicago and go 0341 on your ass.

Bring it, mortarman. You stand no chance against the might of a machinegunner.
