Leaving NCR

I rarely use this space to talk about my own life, but it seems prudent to dedicate a post to announcing that I have left my job at NCR Corporation, effective today, and will probably be leaving Cebu for the forseeable future.

I've been a software development engineer there for 2 years and 9 months now. My first job. It's not easy to say goodbye to all the good people there, but it's time for change.

No one believes me when I say this, but there is no new job lined up for me just yet. Doesn't sound like a smart move with this economy, but I'm feeling confident.

As a going away gift, my teammates pitched in to get me this wonderful 5x5x5 Rubik's Cube-- with the sides replaced with pictures of our team, plus the company logo:

Such thoughtful people, aren't they? I had no idea.
