The Guide of a MOSSLover Becky Isserman's Blog

I know I have been really silent and I am not usually this silent.  I have not really had a substantially awesome blog entry in a while.  Well that is due to some trips, some changes, some book writing, and some life events.  First off here is my Flickr Url, so I don't have to embed a ton of pictures.  My New York Pictures will be up tomorrow or the next day, but the Maine/New England ones are already up.  You can see the beauty of Acadia National Park.  I would say those pictures are far superior to the five billion Statue of Liberty and Manhattan/Brooklyn Pictures.  I really have no idea which place I loved better.  Both had there strong points and there beauty.  I would say Maine was kind of that outdoorsy natural beauty that you get due to all the trees and mountains.  Brooklyn just had this vibe that I felt from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.  This was my first New York Trip sans my parents.  The Maine trip was really my first trip where I was heading to just visit a place without necessarily visiting people.  I had to do all the trips that I have done to get to this point in my life.  To realize that if you are not happy with something, then you really need to go out and change it.  So as you know I started out with MOSS Camp in St. Louis, then I ended up at School of Dev in Tulsa and then the Regional SharePoint Conference in D.C.  These are all places that I have been, so nothing really spectacular.  Finally that takes me to Hartford Code Camp and Maine.  That was like a new endeavor a new experience.  It was like a new chapter in my life.  The chapter where I go out and take charge of what I want.  The chapter where I finally go out and travel to places new.  I know that I have been to New York City, but it is an entirely different experience going to Manhattan for a day trip three or four times with your parents as a teenager/early twenty-something.  I am a lot older, 26, and my take on life is a little different.  I had a lot of growing up to do from the age of 16 when I first visited New York to the age of 26 that I am now.  I feel like I enjoy things a little bit more.  I guess getting away from home makes that possible.  There is a lot of baggage that comes with my parents that I won't touch on this blog in detail ever.  Plus it helps to meet a lot of good people.  I met a really cool guy from German over the weekend, Tim, my friend Julia's cousin he told me all these great stories about Germany.  We compared a lot of cultural differences here versus Germany and discussed some stereotypes we each had.  He invited me to visit his home in Germany and I am going to try and do that next year.  I have always wanted to go to Europe and there have been about three times I chickened out.  Johnny and I have decided to fly into London next year and take the train around Europe.  No tour just the two of us, maybe a Frommer's Guide, and the destinations we want to go to on specific days.  But I digress as usual...So I met someone else over the weekend that really affected me.  That made me really think based on her experiences.  I can't really go into detail it was very personal some of the stuff she told me.  I am hoping I get to see her again, but I really will never know like I still have no idea how she will affect my decisions in life in the future.  So from that I can say the people were awesome.  Now for the actual wedding part I will say it was interesting.  My friends got married in a Vegan Restaurant.  It was simple and it was different.  I want that in life.  It kind of made me realize when I do get married in a few years how it's going to be and what it's going to be like.  It's really weird how stuff like that can affect you.  Anyway, so that's the trip part...Overall I had good times in both places...The Maine stuff you can really see in the pictures I won't get into too much details over those.

So here is the big news, I put in my resignation to Terracon and I accepted a new job.  I really don't want to say anything until I start.  I know some of you out there know and others don't.  I'm not trying to mess with anyone's head.  I don't like mind games myself.  I just don't want to jinx anything for the next two weeks.  I start the new job on September 15th, so that is when I will create a blog post.  Anyway, I am very tired and I want to see another episode of House and write some more stuff for the book.  So if you want as usual leave comments, questions, or whatever you want.  I'll try and respond in a timely fashion.  Later guys.

I was in Bar Harbor, ME about a week before you, for vacation. Did Acadia, a scenic cruise on Frenchman's Bay, and of course downtown Bar Harbor! I finally posted my picts yesterday. I'm off to go take a look at yours.

Do you have a Flickr account? I really want to go back all I got to do was take the bus around Acadia a bit. I really want to hit up Nova Scotia next time.
