A change of pace kind of week

Motorcycles / Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

I’m not even halfway done with the week and I know it’s been interesting.

As you know, I’m planning on road-tripping to Massachusetts this weekend on my motorcycle. Much to my dismay, on Sunday I found that my carbs had frozen in a wide open position. This is bad unless I want to get to Massachusetts with all available speed. I don’t need that much speed.

I spent the past two days working to make up the time I’d be gone and then going home and tearing apart the two racks of carbs that I have and rebuilding them into one working rack. As a result, I ended up adding a few ponies to my engine; she’s going to fly now. I also killed a bunch of brain cells in the process due to the fume inhalation.

That being said, I have a day to pack for a trip I wasn’t sure I was taking 24-hours ago. No biggie.

I also had my second round interview for a Front End Web Developer position. I think it went well but I won’t know until early next week whether I got the job or not. The more the position was described to me, the more I loved it. I would be the link between a few departments and it sounded like I would be busy all the time. That’s my kind of job. I’ll let you know what I find out.

To be honest, though, I’m not dead set on getting the job. Trust me, I would love to have it but there are other options for work right now. I have my part-time web programming job and my former boss asked if I’d like to come back part-time while I’m around. In addition, I received an email this morning saying that my Peace Corps account status has been updated. My medical information is under review. So, if everything starts to work out for the Peace Corps, I’d feel bad taking a job only to leave it two months later.

Anyway, I’ve got things to get done before I head out on the highway. Throw me into your prayers if you get a chance so while I’m out looking for adventure, I’m still able to come home.
