Just Got Up to Indiana

Posted on 14 October 2014 under Uncategorized

I spent the morning up at the campus of Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne. They were pretty much ready to hire me on the spot and that was a surprise to me. I expected that it was going to be a couple of weeks before I heard back, but apparently this is exigent circumstances and they are moving a lot faster than you would expect from this sort of institution. Usually things move at a glacial pace when you deal with these sorts of things. I had to start looking at the local internet providers and they actually found me a place to stay already. The guy knew that I would have difficulty just picking up and moving up there, so he arranged it for me to move in to this vacant studio apartment that belonged to a friend of his. It is far from ideal in many ways, but the price is superb and the location is almost perfect.

I can roll out of bed here, shower, grab something to eat and walk to my office in less than 15 minutes. This is literally the closest place that there is to the office that there is. At least it is about as close as it can be. The guy who owns it is a computer scientist and sort of a wild guy. He is about ten years older than I am and he has this really long pony tail of jet black hair. It goes half of the way down his back. I would guess that the guy probably does not remember the last time that he went to get his hair cut. He is a nice enough guy and quite easy to get along with. Apparently he does not like a long commute though and likes to be this close to his job.
