I didn't realize that you had moved East this summer. I've heard you refer to the bad timing of your more, but at least you're still alive. What part of town are you living and working in? Setting aside the WTC disaster, was your new job worth the move? (I assume it was, otherwise you wouldn't have gone all the way cross country.)
I haven't been to the City since August, but I'll be passing through on my way to Maine for Thanksgiving. I have a fear that my view of recent events will be radically altered when I see the devastation with my own eyes.</strong><hr></blockquote>
I know, I shouldn't complain about the timing of my move. I knew a couple of people killed on September 11, but by association only. I just relocated to a more permanent apartment on the Upper East Side, and am wasting most of my time running a small production company with an old friend. I finished my project back West ahead of schedule, so decided to have a change of scenery for a while, and was offered an advisory position at ***'s research facility not a million miles from here.
It's been fun, but I'm thinking about heading for Portland, OR next summer. I've spent a few weeks out there over the last twelve months, and have come to love the place.
[quote]For me, nothing has really changed since AI went down. I'm still in law school, still wasting too much time on the 'Net and still wishing I was gainfully employed and productive instead of suffering through school, even though I'm doing it out of my own choice. At least I have a nice place to live and a lovely wife, dog and iBook to keep me (somewhat) sane.
When do you graduate? Though I enjoyed my time at school, I'm pretty certain I don't ever want to go back. Have you thought about just how you'd like to be gainfully employed?
