Knock, knock? Anyone home?I'm back and just thought I would drop in and say hi. But it would appear there hasn't been a post here since October. How come?Well, it's nice to see some familiar names in the post listing. Good to know that folks I knew way back when are still around.Anyway, happy to be back, and hopefully this board is still alive and kicking.Take care all,-b.
Welcome back! This board is very quiet now, but many of still at the Fool haven't taken it out of our favs, nostalgia runs deep!So what have you been up to?Cosmos
Hi Cosmos,Thanks, it's good to be back. I suppose the only big thing I've been up to is I went back to school and switched careers. I had been a paralegal for 12 years at the time, but I decided to go back and get my IT certifications. So that's what I do now. At least, when I'm working. I got laid off from my first job, my second job got outsourced to Costa Rica, and my third job was only temporary and that ended a couple of weeks ago. So it hasn't been too lucrative. But I enjoy it all the same. I'm taking the time now to study up for some more IT certifications.How about yourself? How have things been with you?-b.
switched careers snip I decided to go back and get my IT certificationsThat sounds like a nice change of pace. It's pretty much same old, same old here. I have the same job, but it's gotten more challenging, and things have changed enough to keep it fresh. I moved last fall, from an old house in the city in a very urban neighborhood, to a newer house in the suburbs. It's a big change. I love the house, and the neighborhood is great. I miss being in the city, and already I've noticed a reluctance to attend work things downtown in the evenings. I don't miss the school shootings, and the grafitti, and all the petty crime of the city.Cosmos

Hey there catdaddy! Great to see you posting. Sorry it has taken me this long to respond. This board is pretty light on the postings these days, huh? No biggie. Just curious about it.I'm doing ok, though I'm unemployed at the moment, which sucks. I actually just posted to the Ask The Headhunter board, and yesterday I applied to two local companies after just cold calling them to see if they needed any help. I'm trying to get more aggressive in my search.Other than that, things are pretty much as they were 4 years ago when I was last here. Still single. Not dating at the moment. Concentrating on advancing my career.When last you heard from me, I was a paralegal. I since switched careers into the IT world. So I'm trying to lay a foundation there.I stopped dating around Dec 2007/Jan 2008. Nothing was working out, so I just figured I would take a break. I think once I have a steady job, I'll revisit the dating world.How about you? How have you been these past few years? (Isn't it weird to say that? lol)Hope all is well with you and the rest of the crew. I've heard from CindyC on my board, Life of Brian, which I CANNOT believe is still here. I've also heard from plaidprincess over there and cosmos over here. Would love to hear from some more folks.Take care, cd. And let me know how you are doing.-b.
