The Silence Is Broken

Don’t worry, I’m not going to go on forever about not posting for a few months. Suffice to say that my plans to blog every day during my job hiatus were somehow inverted. Ah well. On with life. I’ll hit the highlights now and hopefully delve more in depth in the future.

The move to Huntsville went smoothly and we’ve begun to settle into our new apartment. After a couple of months of searching, I’ve found a job and I’ll start training on Sept. 10. Treeva and I visited several churches in the area and have finally found one that is very friendly and that seems like a good fit for us. We haven’t made a final decision yet, but hopefully we will soon.

I’m trying to break out of my usual introverted shell in order to make some friends around here, and so far things are looking hopeful. Once we moved here I found out that Alabama is one of three states that still has antiquated beer laws that keep a lot of the good quality beers from being available. Luckily, there’s a group called Free The Hops that’s working to change these laws. At a benefit for a local brewery (only one in Alabama) which burned down shortly after we moved, I joined FTH. Tonight was the monthly meeting and even though I didn’t know anyone there, I attended, met some great people, and actually had a good time.

Additionally, at church in the park this past Sunday (the church met at the brewery, cool huh?) I met a guy who told me about a local group of gamers. I was able to play some Halo 2 with them the other night, and let me tell you that it was a nice change of pace to play with mature people who didn’t quit on you or call you all sorts of names. I should get to meet a lot of them in person at a big LAN party shortly after Halo 3 comes out.

So there you have it. We’re moved, we’re assimilating into the city, and we’re making friends. More details to come.
