Starting New Job

Next week I start my new job. I'm excited to get started.

Having worked from home for the past 6 months, I'm sure there will be some adjustments I'll have to make. Certainly my pajamas are probably no longer considered acceptable work attire. Although there were aspects of working from home I thoroughly enjoyed, there was a loss of team spirit which I'm looking forward to having again.

What really excites me, though, is jumping into some new code, especially since the code with which I had been working left much to be desired. I'm embarrassed to admit that despite Java5's age, I've not yet been on a project which uses it. Naturally I've boned up on Generics, Enums, etc, but no amount of reading replaces the familiarity I gain from using something day-in and day-out.

Awhile ago, I decided it would be immoral of me to deprive the sphere o'blogs my erudite, insightful voice of reason. But it took time for this idea to be realized, chiefly due to my inability to create a blog title that I thought would accurately describe my online essence. Finally I said to hell with it -- I'd never find the perfect title (I lack my brother's talent for catchy, pithy names). So I choose the apt, but not perfect, title "Rich Inner Life". With dismay I found it was not available, and therefore christened this blog "Poor Inner Life." Like, y'know, to be ironic.
