    I'm sure you all realized I wasn't here and missed me.

    Figured I'd post a quick update about what I've been up to. Still working at Amazon. 16 months now. Relocating to Boston in March for a promotion to help launch a new site. Can't wait. But before then, I also get to go to Arizona, Tennessee, and London for work. Going to be great experiences.

    As far as the personal life goes, still with my girlfriend. Something like 3 years? Idk, haha. Going to Italy and Switzerland to snowboard in late January. Going to be amazing. Also still driving my Integra daily. It just keeps on banging. The truck is also still playing the supporting role. The lease ends in March and I'll be custom ordering a 2 door short bed to replace it.

    All and all, a pretty good last couple of months. And it just keeps getting better.

    Haha, I know how. All the road trips and ski trips over the years, I had to learn.
    Yea. I wouldn't call it my passion or anything, but I do enjoy the work I do day to day. I bet you could tell I was a duck on a pond when I was an accountant back in Seattle.
    I work for their Fresh division. Think Fresh Direct, Pea Pod, etc. Grocery delivery, by Amazon. You have to sell your soul to work for the .com side, mine just has a lein against it. I'll be an Area Manager in Boston. Oversee a team of roughly 30 in day to day operations.
    I took the state police exam and the 2 municipal exams. Never heard a word. Honestly, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed the job.
    Mostly out of trouble. Don't booze much anymore. And when I do, it's no where near the levels I use to.

    Bump... Ironic that this was the last thread I posted in.

    Blame reckedracing for me popping back in. He messaged me and reminded me that I really enjoy this forum. Still have the Integra, still have plans to do something with it, so I guess it was inevitable that I'd be back.

    Nope. Southern CA for a year in March. Absolutely love it. Don't miss the Boston/east coast winters.

    Unfortunately, the company would only move 2 vehicles with my relocation. It's under a cover at my parents house in NJ, with the battery on a tender in the garage. Started right up when I was home for Christmas. It needs this nice dry air though. The driver's rear quarter is developing some bubbles. Plan is to eventually do a Roadkill style cross-country trek with all my tools in the back. My parents will be glad to get part of their driveway and garage back. I'll be glad to have all my tools.
