A little bit over a year ago I gave all my stuff away and jumped into an airplane. I had a plan. The plan did not pan out so well, so I had to improvise. After month and a half and a few interviews, I landed a full time gig as a Software Engineer at XXXXXX. It's a pretty cool job- I love the people, and I genuinely enjoy what I do.
