2001 Update

Well, I see that the last time I updated myself was two years ago.  I no longer work for Logicon.  I quit that job almost a year ago.  I now work for a company called Practical Consulting Group who is soon to go public soon and change its name to iVentex.  I am still a systems analyst but I like my current job a lot more.  I have a lot more to do and am learning a lot of new stuff.  I also like the people I work with.  There are a lot more people my age and everyone here is nice and friendly.  I really enjoy my job now. 

Married life is so different from living a single’s life.  I’m not doing much anymore besides working and watching the baby.  I don’t go out with my friends anymore until 2 or 3 in the morning.  I can barely keep in contact with my friends now.  I don’t just go buy whatever I want whenever I want.  I have to do a lot more shopping then I use to.  Yeah, don’t let me into Price Club, Wal-Mart or Target.  Everything I go into one of those stores, I end up buying a lot of things.  On the weekends, we don’t do much either.  I’m either at my parent’s house or I’m at home.  Sometimes, there might be special events on the weekends that we need to attend but besides that, we don’t go out much.  I guess after working for the whole week, all I want to do is sleep and spend more time with my family.  With my new job, I do some traveling.  Sometimes is for a day and sometimes, it’s for two.  For the past few months, I’ve been doing a lot of these one or two day travels.  I have to go to the client’s site, which is three hours away from here.  I don’t like the traveling all that much, especially if it’s for two days.  There’s nothing to do down in Salinas and I miss my family.  I’m so use to getting off work and going home to my family instead of to an empty hotel room.  Also, I don’t like the food down there too much.  For some reason, everything I go down there, I get sick.  Maybe it’s the environment.  Who knows?  I don’t think I have to go down there much anymore so I guess that’s cool. 

Goals.  Well, they’re still the same: To work for more money and retiring at the age of 55 and then go travel around the world.  I have no idea how to accomplish this goal besides saving lots and lots of money before I retire.  It’s funny how I’m talking about retirement when I’m only 24 and that’s it’s 30 something years away from now.  I guess this is what you call long-term goals.  My other goal is still to be a good wife and mother.  Even though Nicholas is very cute and adorable, he can be a handful and a mischievous kid sometimes.  It’s really hard to get him to listen to me sometimes.  And the looks that he gives you when you are mad at him are priceless. 

Well, I really don’t know what else to write about so I guess I will stop here.  I have no idea when I write myself another update so if anyone really wants to know more about me, you’ll just have to e-mail me.  Hopefully, I will return your e-mail message soon
