My Future Plans: Full-Time, Colorado, and a Dog

by Steve Wortham
As I devote more and more time to BucketSoft and BucketSoft products, I can't help but think of my future plans.

MalamuteI expect a few key things will happen in the next 12 to 16 months:
  1. I'll quit my day job so that I may work on BucketSoft full-time. This is a big deal that'll mark a new chapter in my life. I look forward to it with a nervousness that's hard to explain. This is everything I've worked towards. And after this BucketSoft will be my livelihood.
  2. I'll move to Colorado (most likely Colorado Springs). I've been to Colorado on five separate occasions and I love it up there. The snowy winters, mild summers, beautiful mountains... what is there to complain about? I'm a young single guy so if I'm going to make the move then now is the time to do it. Nearly all of my family lives in Texas so this is a big deal too. They will be sorely missed, but I'm hoping they'll visit often.
  3. Next fall when I get an Alaskan Malamute I will name him "Burrito" in honor of Joel Spolsky.
Anyway, if two out of three of those things happen I'll be pretty happy about it.
