Last Day at Origin

Today’s my last day as a gainfully employed member of Electronic Arts. We enjoyed a big lunch at Dave & Busters this afternoon, but are otherwise keeping busy up until the last minute trying to get Character Transfer wrapped up and ready for public consumption. (I spilled queso on myself at lunch, but had fortunately had the foresight to wear my cheese-colored shirt.) It’s been interesting (and a bit difficult) to watch friends work through the decision of whether to stay in Austin or to move out to California.

I’m planning on taking a couple of weeks to spend with family, to take each of the kids out individually for a day together, and to relax while doing some very low-key job hunting. If none of the initial prospects pan out, I’ll get more serious about it at the beginning of April.
