"Roam if you must, but come home when you’ve seen enough." The odd bounces of life and the Toronto job market have seen me return home to Minneapolis, so this will be the last post, but the blog will stay up for others to find.

I wish I had the same luxury, but life is coming at me from all directions at the moment. The next few weeks are going to be really interesting.
