So not that anyone who actually reads my blog cares that I haven’t made a post in over two months… but just in case, let me explain. Things got busy. But, the thing that was the biggest source of my silence was: my laptop died. And I’m a computer techie. A dead laptop + computer techie + americorps budget = not a very good combination. Fortunately, I have a computer at work, so I am using that for personal stuff during off hours. In addition, I have an iPod touch, with which I can browse the web, write emails, etc… In fact, that is what I’m using to write this blog post. Now that I know for a fact that it’s not that hard to do, I might start blogging more often again. However, it always takes longer to type on the iPod touch, and it is easy to make typos.
This is going to be a fairly short blog post. Work is continuing to go well. However, I am already thinking about what’s next. I would probably have the opportunity to extend my internship another year, but I’m not sure if I want to. I have certainly learned a lot.
Regardless, I think that I would like to stay up here in Boston for a few reasons. I have made some really good friends up here, and have gotten involved at Reunion Church. I feel like there would be some good ideas for me to consider in this area. However, I am also really interested in thinking about possible work over seas and/or launching my business that would do IT work for non-profits. (Check out Smooth Stone Services for what I currently do. If I decide to launch something full time, I will rebrand myself and have different services for a specific target market in mind).
In two weeks, I will be at the CCDA Conference. I hope to be able to network with people, andaybe get some ideas. In the meantime, I will continue to trust that the Lord has something good planned for me!
