    Goodbye Austin (but not farewell)

    Well, this is my last week in Austin. I'm taking a job in North Carolina that will last for at least one year. I'm really going to miss this place - the nightlife, the music, the flora and fauna, and most definitely the authentic Mexican cuisine (I may have to learn how to make my own horchata). The good news is: I'll be back. So long, Waterloo!

    I'm sure there are good things in North Carolina too - where abouts are you going?

    I know, I'm just being sentimental - I've actually heard great things about NC, and I think it'll be a good fit. I'm moving to an area referred to as Research Triangle Park (or simply RTP).

    Are you at least going to continue wearing your Texan hat in NC?

    Since you're a SE, do you have to move around a lot for work or something? I need to know because I will be in the same boots in 3 more years :'(

    It really depends on where you live and what opportunities it has to offer. Austin, for instance, generally has a lot of available tech jobs, but in my case, the company made me an offer I just couldn't refuse. =) Also keep in mind that in some cases, you can even find 'telecommute' work, but I don't particularly like this sort of arrangement, as you miss out on the personal interaction that is so important for making projects turn out successfully.
