Sunday, August 17, 1997

I finished Grad School in December, 1997, and moved to St. Louis where I had always wanted to live.  I stayed with some friends, taking up valuable real estate on their couch, and eating their food, while I went to horrible interview after horrible interview.  17 interviews, with only one job offer from Orkin to kill termites for a living.  I walked door to door for Sierra Club for a day, and contemplated the possibility of living on couches permanently.

I gave up my dream of living in St. Louis, and went back to Houston.  2 days, 1 interview, and had my first job out of college with a start up mortgage broker.  It was a good job, but short on challenges.  A year and half later, Stacy had a job opening at Voicestream and i moved up to Seattle, somehow landing in IT.
