It has felt pretty good this last week and a half to take a break from posting here and honestly I do not know what my posting schedule will be going forward. There is a very good reason for that uncertainty on my part.
Today I will work my final shift at Redlight Redlight. When I left my architecture office job almost 2.5 years ago now I felt pretty good about it because I did not love what I did. I very much liked the people I worked with (for the most part), but the job was killing me on the inside. Leaving Redlight and turning my keys in tonight will be a bummer in that moment because I not only like the people I work with, but I have enjoyed the job (for the most part) over the last 1.5 years or so.
It was certainly physically demanding, but it was also a lot of fun. I met so many great people and have made some new friends along the way that I am very grateful for. For many reasons I owe Brent and Teege a lot for taking a chance on me when they first hired me and I think they are glad that they took that chance.
With all of that said, today is also very exciting because after my shift is over I will be able to turn my mind to my new job as the Central Florida Marketing Representative for Cigar City Brewing! I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and I would be stupid not to admit that my experience at Redlight Redlight had a lot to do with me getting it. I am really anxious to get started.
So now that I have announced my new job that should explain a little bit of my uncertainty about my posting schedule going forward. Until I get going I am not exactly sure of what my day to day schedule will be. On top of that I want to be appropriate with what I write about here. For example, since I don’t want to be reviewing Cigar City beers, I am not sure how much I want to be reviewing any other beers. Maybe I will just go toward posting less frequently and do more educational entries. Until I get going with my new job and figure that out you will probably not hear much from me in this forum.
For now I am going to enjoy pouring my last few pints tonight and then will very much enjoy a long weekend.
