Now that all of the events I went to this summer are over, it means that summer, for me specifically, is pretty much over. Not all events went as I planned, but I have some good news to report.
- I had a wedding to attend at the end of April, so I wasn’t able to go to DrupalCamp NYC.
- Design 4 Drupal Boston was fun and I enjoyed meeting people from Acquia and other people I worked with on the event’s website.
- WordCamp Boston was pretty much a complete failure for me. (I’d rather not talk about it.) Because of how I felt after my session, I didn’t see much of the conference.
- Otakon was busy and tiring. We walked over 15,000 steps one day and it was near 100 degrees every day we were there.
This was not the best summer ever, but I think I’m stronger for it. I’m really looking forward to fall and winter events this year. I will most likely be attending WordCamp NYC and DrupalCamp NYC this winter.
Now for the good news! I will be working at Northpoint Solutions as a consultant starting Wednesday, August 17th. This means that I am no longer accepting freelance work and I’m finishing up the projects I already have on my plate.
I have a lot to do before I start at my first job in New York City. Because I live on Long Island, I have to make sure I get train tickets and a parking permit for the train station. I also have to make sure my apartment is clean, buy new clothes, and get used to wearing nice shoes again! (I practically murdered my feet this summer.) I’m nervous, but also very excited!
I think I’ll have a lot more time to work on my personal projects now that I’ll be working a set 40 hours a week rather than all the time.
