Welcome to Cube-Land

For the last 8 years, I worked for a company that was about 30 people when I started and grew to about 60 ish people when it was all said and done. It was a great company and I loved working with a lot of the people there.  But, as I reflect back, I see what ended up being a really great stepping stone in my professional career.

So now, I'm in cubical corporate America and I'm really enjoying it.  My other company was about 40 miles from my house and while it didn't seem far at first, after having two kids, it made it really seem too far from home.  In a given day, my round trip mileage would be about 107 miles, total.  Makes me a little sick.  No wonder I was filling up on gas every 3 days or so... My company now is only 19 miles from my house and on any given day, I drive a little less than 60 miles total.  It's amazing.

Corporate America is sort of entertaining, honestly.  They have these places under lock and key and it's a nightmare to just get hired externall…
