Yep, Fox is bloggin...first post

Being prompted by such illustrious peeps like Brain (see pic at left) and Simmons creating their own blogs, I figured I had probably jump on the band wagon. I'm not entirely sure what I really have to say that is at all substantial but I'm gonna lay it down as best I can.

So about a month ago, I decided to leave my job as a bike mechanic in Grand Forks, ND and work as an Associate Systems Administrator for Rosemount, Inc in Minneapolis. I figured the perfectly happy life I had was nothing compared to the promise of moving to a town where I had no friends, no family, no place to live, a job doing somthing I'm "trained" to do but have never actually done in any kind of real world application. After working in bike shops for 1o years (where there was probably a maximum of 11 employees at once at any given time) I have to support somthing ridiculous like 2000 people who use our network. It was a little much for a while, no furniture, dumpy house, getting up at 6:30am (Yes, as a member of the real world apparently I'm no longer afforded the luxury of waking up at the crack of noon) the job itself was ok but not having furniture makes for a long night after work. BTW, I would also like to thank Heineken for helping me shorten those nights a little. I'm two weeks in now, and its actually pretty alright. It's sort of like Office Space, but the people in my department are cool at least. Um, what else....Oh, I was late my second day, thats always a good one at a new job. So, in conclusion, I really miss my 'ol lady, my friends and my house, but I'm startin to get settled in. Peace.
