A few weeks ago I accepted a job offer in Mountain View that starts January 2nd. Signed a lease on a new apartment in San Carlos last weekend. And I'm still in denial about this actually happening.

Leaving my first real job, and first real home is so much harder than I've ever imagined. But I think this is a needed change.

I'm going to say it. 2011, 2012, 2013, you have been some trying years. I made more blunders that I can shake a stick at. And yet, these have also been good years. Maybe necessary years. I've worked really hard, learned lots (oh, god, I hope I learned lots). And I think it's time. I'm ready.

I don't even care what happens the rest of the year. Thanksgiving? Christmas? Bleh. I'm ready for a great 2014.


  1. Congrats, Olga! So many changes at your end.

    I must say I share your experience, especially with the year 2013 - all the accumulated problems of the previous years consentrated into one single year (and I know it doesn't seem so from the blog because I seem happy and all that, but it was.) Maybe it's something with the number. Maybe it's something with me. Whatever it is, I really look forward to 2014.

  2. It's going to be so fucking fantastic! Im so fucking proud of you babeh! && more importantly, I cannot wait to visit you!
