Meet my new best friend, facebook

facebookYes, I said facebook. While I may be late in getting to the party, I certainly have been catching up. I really can appreciate the community of users that it has created, not to mention the developers who are going crazy supplying us with great apps.

I am totally hooked on Scrabulous along with Texas Hold ’em Poker. Not only do you get a chance to play the great games, but who knows you may just run into an old buddy during a hand.

The whole notion of how the internet has been evolving towards the community and network based environment leads me to believe we are in store for some interesting surprises.

Back and I need a vacation

Capel Lookout CabinIs it just me or does everyone feel the same way I do when they return from their vacation. Yes, I had a great time and I could have stayed much longer, but now that I’m home I feel like I need to take another break. Just some time to really chill out. Don’t get me wrong, the beach me and my family went to was fantastic. We went to Portsmouth Island, North Carolina, a remote barrier island that is part of Cape Lookout National Seashore.

Venturing out into the unknown

While a new beginning may sound intriguing and adventurous it also comes with the its sense of nervousness. I have been in the design and marketing business for quite some time and have seen a lot of changes over the years. While I’ve seen the ups and downs, the twists ans turns, I’ve always felt like I”ve been in my element and with people that understood this work environment.

As of Friday, August 10th, this has all changed. I’ve left the company I started and ultimately sold only to venture back out into the unknown. With no certain next steps I have brought upon a new found excitement and yes, fear of what the future may hold for me. Yes, I have some ideas of what I may be doing in my next life, but ultimately it’s a time for me to perhaps change my overall direction.

While the design, advertising agency, and ultimately interactive marketing industry have all been great challenging experiences for me, it may be time for a change. All too often we find ourselves in what I deem a “work comfort zone”. That is, we find ourselves “going through the motions”. Day in and day out we get in a rut and while there’s nothing wrong with this, I find that without a challenge I find it hard to press onward.

So without committing to my next venture, I do know that whatever it is, it will bring change. With change comes learning and ultimately a new life challenge.
