This coming Sunday will be my last Sunday at Lakeview Church. I've been a part of this church since summer of 2006 and I've been blessed to experience such a fulfilling 6 years of my life at this church. Now, as to why my wife and I have decided to leave Lakeview - it really came down to the following 2 reasons: 1. Church (the building) is too far (~1 hour drive each way) 2. Church community (the people) is too far from us. We wanted to find a church closer to home and be able to invest more of our time, energy, and resources in a church community that's closer to home.

Earlier this year I decided that it’s time for me to look for another opportunity outside the company. The company executives decided on being acquired by Oracle and my decision to leave the company had a lot to do with the fact that I was less than enthused about working for Oracle. Thankfully for me, my job search coincided with what I think is a pretty darn good market for software developers, and I was able to conclude my job search in a relatively short period of time. It’s been 2 and half weeks now at my new job and I’m loving it so far.
