Fall 2009. A season of discontent… frustration… complacency… lethargy… frustration… impulse. I had been in Wheeling with both life and career since November 1996. The economy was crap, my relationship wasn’t any better, and I was pretty much miserable. The company I was working for had closed its local office the previous November, and each day after I was driving to Pittsburgh and back. The stale nature of the daily grind grew to an uncomfortable level. I felt as if I needed a change, but did I? I asked my boss to include me in the mix for any promotion opportunities. Less than a month later I was living and working in Delaware.
