Change of Pace

More like a 180 at full speed, actually...

As most of you know by now, I'm not at V18 anymore. It's only been a month since I started working at KCPL, but it seems waaay longer than that since I've been down to the shop. What a great time that was hanging out, working on bikes, drinking beer, talking to friends... I wish I could have stayed but I've joined the ranks of the desktop tweakers once again. It's hard for me to believe that I was away for over 2 years. That was awesome.

My new job is a straight eight desk job, but it's actually quite cool. Lots and lots of maps. I'm going through an intensive training and apprenticeship program right now that'll take me all summer and into the fall. I've just completed the first 28 days (that is significant) and nearly all of my concentration and energy have been put into getting through that. It's kicking my ass a little right now, but I'm slowly adjusting to the new schedule and I hope I can start to get personal ambitions up and running again. Less studying at night means more riding!

Until I'm finished with training, my shift will be 7-3 M-F. I'll get a random twilight or graveyard shift, but mostly I'll leave work at 3, which gives me plenty of daylight in the afternoon to play. I hear there is a dude that works in my building that rides his bike to work. I'm hoping to catch up with him and get the scoop on that- maybe start riding into downtown daily once again.
