Life goes on

Plane landed in Vancouver at 9:28 AM on Thursday morning. Went straight to work. Yesterday, my team experienced a reorg, so I don't even know who my boss is anymore. Last night, I finally said good-bye.
Toronto was excellent, as visits always are. Good memories and bad experiences that build us up, both professionally and personally. We came runner-up in Ventures and SIFE categories in our divisions. Ryerson beat us out to be the finalist for our Fair Enterprise division. It figures that we couldn't even be a runner-up for that one. :) Perhaps I'm bad luck to the team. ;) But in all seriousness, Yi-Jeng and I watched the Fair Enterprise presentations of BCIT and Wilfrid Laurier and there was no way we could have beaten them (except for in the internal politics subject). A lot of things to which we can look forward for the coming year.
Who can forget Adrian riding the mechanical bull? Yee haw! Oh yeah! :D And being able to better understand the various team members within ACE was great. We're that much stronger a team now because of everything (and I mean everything) that happened.

So I come back from lunch, and my boss asks me if anyone talked to me about the reorg? Huh? What reorg? So now half of my team has been split up and sent off to different departments. Meanwhile, the remainder gets integrated into marketing, and I don't even know who my boss is anymore or what I'm supposed to do. So I get sent home early. Yay.

If you would like experience working as a database analyst and consultant for building a database system, please contact me. I know of an opportunity for you to work with one of the IT guys from PriceWaterhouseCoopers on a volunteer project. Perhaps a great way to network and show off your mad skillz? ;) Peter is gone to HK and won't be back until June 2, so yes, anyone can ask me for more details. The project should only take a few weeks, a month at most.

Closing with a song. Indeed.

I Don't Know You Anymore
By Savage Garden

I would like to visit you for a while
Get away and out of this city
Maybe I shouldn't have called but
Someone had to be the first to break
We can go sit on your back porch
Relax
Talk about anything
It don't matter
I'll be courageous if you can pretend
That you've forgiven me

Because I don't know you anymore
I don't recognise this place
The picture frames have changed
And so has your name
We don't talk much anymore
We keep running from the pain
But what I wouldn't give to see your face again

Springtime in the city
Always such a relief from the winter freeze
The snow was more lonely than cold if you know what I mean
Everyone's got an agenda
Don't stop, keep that chin up you'll be alright
Can you believe what a year it's been
Are you still the same?
Has your opinion changed?

Because I don't know you anymore
I don't recognise this place
The picture frames have changed
And so has your name
We don't talk much anymore
We keep running from these sentences
But what I wouldn't give to see your face again

I know I let you down
Again and again
I know I never really treated you right
I've paid the price
I'm still paying for it every day

So maybe I shouldn't have called
Was it too soon to tell?
Oh what the hell
It doesn't really matter
How do you redefine something that never really had a name?
Has your opinion changed?

Because I don't know you anymore
I don't recognise this place
The picture frames have changed
And so has your name
We don't talk much anymore
We keep running from the pain
But what I wouldn't give to see your face again
I see your face
I see your face

I wrote another poem! Yay... You can find it in the poetry section.
