It's been a while since my last entry...

Life's been rough lately. It's been a really confusing ride.

I recently graduated college and starting working full- time. The place I work for is great. The people there are wonderful. I just wish that some of them were closer to my age. The next closest person (age-wise) is 11 years older than me. There are a lot of interesting, smart people that work there. The problem is that most of them work remotely from places like New Hampshire, so their years of wisdom and experience go lost on me. No "water-cooler" meetings to speak of really. Herb Brooks would be disappointed. I'm not a solitary hacker...

After graduation, my friends are scattered across the country. Some are still in the greater Philadelphia region, or at least are for the next few months (I say "greater" because Philly is a really large place, so it could take hours to get to these friend's places). To boot, my girlfriend of 3 years, whom I love dearly, has been visiting Europe for a month. It's tough, considering we've never really been apart for more than a few days these past few years (and we were never apart for more than a few seconds when we were both in school ;-)

I'm having trouble finding motivation right now. But I guess I have a thing or two to look forward to.
