Tomorrow is my first day on the job in three weeks. Tomorrow is my first day working in Seattle. Tomorrow is the first day I’ll be working at Amazon.

The last time I worked — for pay at least — was three weeks ago.

Those three weeks feel like a lifetime.

In the three weeks we’ve packed up a house. Taken a trip out here for house hunting. I’ve driven across most of our continent.

The past seems so far away. Contrast that to the future which is so close.

I’m not scared. I’m looking forward to it. (I’m also looking forward to getting paid… this hemorrhaging of cash is getting old)
