GoodBye for Now

I know I haven't been here for awhile. Sorry. Work has been heck, my Father is dying of cancer and had to have the tumor removed from his kidneys, etc.

I have decided to take the next move in my career and life. I am accepting a position as a System Administrator with a company overseas. The place overseas is Kuwait. Reasons for this are:

1. Pay. Well over 100K a year which 85K is non taxible. After last years debacle of owing 6K to the IRS, and this years withholding of over 12K to date, I need to use the money in an IRA or some other investments. Plus the only thing I will need to pay for is food. The Condo and car are provided, they have an excellent educational tuition program that I will use for a degree, I will have time to study for the rest of my Certifications.

2. Professional Growth. I am currently a Systems Administrator Level 2. Personally, I am very tired of the Helpdesk calling me on trivial problems, and am very tired of the stupid mistakes that people are making at the Forrest Root. Plus, I will garner much more skills and a deeper appreciation of home. After 4 years of running SMS, Patching workstations, doing threat mitigation and anti-hacking, computer forensics on people who decide they are entitle to surf for porn, it is getting old and I need a change of pace.

3. Personal Growth. I need to meet new people. I am a firm believer that I am the culmination of the people I meet and have know. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. I pick and choose the attributes of the qualities and love the sharing of knowledge. Right now I feel so stagnant. I feel like I have become the teacher when I don't want to be, I want to be the student. Wide eyed, and filled with energy to learn. Learn not only more about the 1's and 0's! More about cultures, and life.

Knowing myself, I will more than likely do a followup assignment to Iraq.

In closing, I wish the many blessings of life to you and your families. May wisdom, luck, happiness, and fortune be with you.

Good Bye

Ben
