Manassas.
May.
So much to do.
The only constant is change.
Away We Go…

So that’s it. I’m moving to Manassas, VA in May for work full time as a web designer for a great guy up there. I’ve been working with his company for about a year now, on a couple different projects. At the moment, Thunder Run is the big thing, which should be huge. It’s going to be a blast going to it. If you know me, you’ll know I am not a huge bike guy, but seeing these things live is just awe inspiring!

The guy I’ll be working for is a promoter, mainly of car and bike shows right now, but he’s done concerts and a plethora of other events too, all of which we’ll be his design team on. I can’t wait!

Working day in and day out as a designer, living my passion and my dream. And getting paid for it. It’s like a dream come true…

Now, I just have to figure out all the details… Like where I am going to live. I am going to be living with my friend / business partner. But we need to find an apartment or something. I have to be out of my current place by the end of April, so I’ll need a place to move to. Living on the street is not really my idea of fun.

I’ve been all over the place in my head in recent weeks, with all the travel I’m doing for my current job, that’s put a lot of strain on relationships with people here. And I’ve been up and down like an emotional rollercoaster about this whole thing. In a lot of ways I’m ready to move on and move out and get on with my life and start this new phase. But just like in all things I don’t want to lose this part of me, which I am afraid might happen.

Yes, there will be some people I will never lose track of, but many will just slowly fade into the past and mists of time, becoming memories. Which is inevitable, as I’m really bad at keeping up with people who do not return the favor (and even some who do).

I wish I were in a position to take some people with me on this ride, because there are a lot who deserve it, they’ve worked just as hard as long as I have, but at this point, I can’t…

Maybe in a few years once we are a more established company, I’ll be able to bring more people on, but who knows. The role of Digital Ink is stable, with the new influx of business we expect to see after we start working with Reggie in Manassas. (Digital Ink is the company my partner and I started about a year ago so we could be more professional.) At the moment, D-I is hard at work, but you’d never know it to see the web site, which I’ve been trying to develop in my “free time” for the last 5 months. I finally have a design that I like and that works… I just can’t find the time to get it done. I’m out of town so often that kills my weeks, and the last thing I want to do on weekends after installing and troubleshooting PCs all week is stare at my own. It’s been giving me some problems as well, though I think I’ve fixed them. crosses fingers

Maybe someday soon I’ll be able to get the site up, and we can capitalize on the traffic being driven there by Thunder Run.
Maybe we’ll be a big company someday.
Maybe this ride will come crashing down around my ankles.
So many maybes…
