Hey everybody!

First off, I tried to befriend as many of you as I could find on Facebook so if you did not get a request, it's probably because I spelled your name wrong, so find me instead :). Life in SD at Pangea Foundation is rockin'. Laura and I have been having a blast. In fact, tonight we're going country line dancing, woo hoo! We've been to the beach, Balboa Park, bike riding, walking around our little city and had all sorts of adventures in getting lost. We're working with a mentoring program right now, developing software. We are considered "software architects." How cool is that? This weekend we get to hang out with Andrea (from PSO) because she's heading up the AIDS walk. The goof troop is re-uniting! Our office is super-sweet. Everyone is helpful and really generous. We have taco Tuesdays and because everyone here is male besides us they bought 39 tacos last time..... we were pretty full. I think we even get a free trip to Disneyland sometime in the near future because the clients we serve all have a crush on our supervisor so he gets the hook-ups. But yeah, life is pretty sweet. I hope all is going well for everyone else!

What a spectacular nickname you have chosen for yourself! I could never have come up with something like that.
Yeh for goof-troop reunions! I'm pumped you guys are having so much fun.

Its awesome how you ended up with the exact opposite office dynamic than I did. Only male, youngest by 10 years and everybody is married, so no sweet escapades to disneyland. I guess we could all take fun trips to the Smithsonians. Those are DC's Disneyland. Big difference though......they're FREE! hahaha, in your face disney.

Life here is good, the Computer CORE is actually a great place. I actually was finally bequeathed a title the other day, which i'm pretty pumped about...Computer Training Development Coordinator <brag>. Its pretty hot. Oh man, I forgot to change the voicemail on my phone. Anyway, my supervisor(s) is quite great and is interested in my professional development, developing my network, and giving me real responsibilities. Its alot like i'm the real deal and not just a federally paid intern. I'm milking all of my pre-existing friends here for their free food and drink and trying to stretch the almighty DC metro dollar. It doesnt go that far, but I'm making my way.

Hello other goofs and all other wonderful VISTAs. I'm glad the blogging is going well. I'll try to contribute more.
