The times, they are a-changin'...

Since I'm no longer on the Executive Committee of the Long Yang Club - San Diego, and I'm moving at the end of the month, the current president finally got around to changing my status from moderator to member on the two Yahoo Groups I created for the club, one being the general mailing list, and the other being the talk space for the EC. (I was originally owner of both but changed it to a generic LYC-specific Yahoo ID I created for continuity's sake and so things just like this could happen smoothly.)

It's kind of... sad. I got kind of an unceremonious FYI, and then notification that it was done. I mean, it's not like they can't live without me (as they obviously have so far this year), but after three and a half years of running the club, and starting these two groups and seeing them take off so well... well, yeah. It's kind of the end of an era, for both me and the club, in a way. Kind of like letting the baby go off to college, or the first time you realize you're not a kid or whatever.

Hrm. Kind of needlessly maudlin. I guess the whole move thing is only just beginning to sink in. I mean, I gave my notice on Friday, but my boss didn't get around to telling someone on our team until today, and I think the last person still doesn't know. Word is slowly seeping through the office, but some people are afraid to say anything until my boss sends out an official office-wide e-mail saying that I'm leaving (she's likely waiting until she and her boss figure out what they're going to do to replace me until someone permanent is hired, so they can send out the info all at once, which they often do). So it doesn't seem real yet that I've actually given notice. Plus I haven't really started packing yet, today I was a little overwhelmed by the fact that I don't have a job and likely won't really be able to line one up until I get there, but only having a month to do so while trying to formulate an aggressive plan to start remedying my debt...

Yeah. Kind of overwhelming. Need to start doing more constructive, proactive things I guess. Doesn't help that this weekend will be sucked up by Conjecture (which will be fun, of course, and I'll be getting lots of info by working the Art Show for my art pimping business, but it's still Thursday through Sunday night effectively shot for getting anything else done).

Gah. I even still have one load from Pennsic still to do.

Argh. I should go to bed. Blah.

Change is always distressing, tiring and exhilaration all at the same time. At least for me it is.

And don't think that you're loosing too organization, think of it has having more time to ensure the meta-organization (the Network) gets it's legs and thrives!

You should check and see if any of the nationwide agencies (OfficeTeam for example), has an office near where you will be (or within reasonable commuting distance). You can get your resume in the system and get your testing done before you move, and have a jump start on the job hunt before you get there.

Kelly loved me, and they're everywhere, so I may contact them ahead of time. THanks.
