Dumpster Bust 2004 End of Year Note

Just wanted to leave a quick note, expressing my thanks for all those who have read and taken part in the Dumpster Bust experience thus far. I’m happy and excited to say that great things are in store for the coming year, including a complete website overhaul replete with more dynamic content… in other words, much more Dumpster Busting to come!

I also wanted to jot down a few quick thoughts on the year behind and the year ahead. I just finished graduate school (so I need to change my profile on the right-side of this page, among other things) and am hired on a part-time basis, at least, in my newly chosen profession. In the past two years, I got married, moved from one region of the country to another, got laid-off from what will hopefully be my last crap job (read = last lay-off, last crap job) and slammed my way through two years of grad school whilst picking up money through part-time, full-time, contract, and freelance work whenever possible.

I’m extremely lucky to have an amazing wife, a supportive family, and a close-knit group of friends that have put up with my antics from time out of mind.

As 2005 dawns, I’m looking forward to (finally) completing my novel, Possible Ends, and beginning my next Big Project (likely a screenplay this time round), securing full-time employment (no more scans through bloody job websites!), and getting into lots lots lots more of the Dumpster Bust.

You've become a blogging dynamo. I see I've got lots of reading to catch up on when I return to the salt mines. Why not take a few days off to give your groupies a chance to digest? You've earned it.

Happy New Year.

Thanks for the best wishes. Be assured that I'm currently getting my rest on and gearing up for some mega DB efforts in '05.

Look forward to more blogging excellence from both of y'all as well.
