Something Better Always Comes Along


I heard about the High Park condos for sale, and initially ignored the offer, but one of my friends convinced me to get one. He told me that a condo would be a great place to live and it would be better than where I was living at the time. It’s funny that I didn’t see him signing up to live in a condo, but he did have a point. I was living in a small apartment where I was already running out of living space. The apartment looked old and it wasn’t even in a convenient location for me, as I had to travel an hour and a half to get to work, not counting traffic.

I decided to at least take a look at the condos. I could easily see whether I liked them or not, and if I didn’t, then I could just go back home without committing to anything. As I looked at the condos, I liked them more and more. I kept comparing them to my old apartment and they just made it look like nothing. I had pretty much made up my mind about living there in the first 15 minutes of seeing the condo, but I wanted to stay there just a little longer.

I ended the lease on my old apartment and went right to my new condo. I didn’t even mind that I would have to pack my items and haul them over to the new condo. I happily carried each box downstairs to my car, because the apartment didn’t have a working elevator. The condo was closer to my job, so when I woke up on Monday morning to go to work, it only took me about 30 minutes, with traffic, to get there. I got pretty lucky in getting this place.

Using Esri ArcGIS Mapping for My Job

Drilling is a big thing now that the Marcellus Shale project in North America is super active. Most people do not even pay much attention to the massive pipeline infrastructure that is being built to pipe huge quantities of natural gas that exist in the United States right under our feet. There is so much gas that it won’t be long until there are a lot more cars powered by NG (natural gas). I work using Esri ArcGIS software on maps to coordinate drilling projects. There is a lot of work right now for geologists like me.

I have been noticing a lot more commercial trucks and buses that have the symbols on them that indicate they are fueled by NG, and I think of all the work that goes into getting that fuel out of the ground. We have a lot of drilling going on in the area I live. Continue reading

Trying to Make Impressive Documents

I would not really want to compare my boss to the current president of the United States, but there are some similarities. Notably the guy does not seem to like to read very much and it does not seem as though he has an attention span commensurate with the requirements of the job. Of course he is married to the only grand daughter of the guy who founded the company and that is all the qualification that he needs. At any rate I am trying to figure out if we can get better scanner software because of this situation. Continue reading
