Oh, Hi2u, 2009!

Posted by Peter Hall - January 5th 2009 @ 12:09 am

2008 was a good year for me personally and professionally.  Saw plenty of good flicks, made new friends (many thanks to this site.  wink.), got paid to do a job I actually enjoy.  More importantly though, 2008 put me twelve months closer to getting married and starting a new life in Austin, effectively leaving behind much that brought me joy in ’08.  The move would have happened sooner, but, well, you all watch the news.  I was wrong when I said Lionsgate was better at losing money than I am.

This being two thousand and nine, relocating a thousand odd miles isn’t that big of a deal, logistically at least.  I am a nerd, keeping up with core nerd friends is an occupational hazard.  However, come Christine and I’s honeymoon following the wedding on May 23rd, I will be leaving behind my job.  Telecommuting doesn’t quite fit in with a Systems Integrator’s job description.

I realize given the current state of the economy, getting married, moving to a new city where you know no one, buying a house and not having a job is rather counter intuitive.  Don’t worry, I’ve got a plan:

Fuck it.  You never know til you try.

Good news, everybody!  Come June, HorrorsNotDead.com is going to get a lot busier!  I apologize for whatever advertising scheme I settle on, but writing (creatively and, well, this place.) is all I will be doing.  Peter gotta eat.

Happy New Year!

    This is great news, Peter. Live the dream!

    I’m jealous. It looks like my Austin plans will have to wait until the wife finishes law school. Considering she isn’t starting until 2010, this means summer of 2013 at the earliest.

    2013 – that sounds so futuristic.

    I still can’t find the RSS feed for this lousy blog.

    I’ll start writing reviews for HnD, Peter, so you get people. Easy to push a button, but apparently people don’t come back to non-review sites.

    I dunno, it’s internet stuff. whatev, right?

    Sorry, I probably should put up a proper RSS icon/link, I just assume everyone uses Firefox, which pulls any site’s RSS feed and places a link to it in the navigation bar.
