Change is in the air! (Two good things, one bad thing)

So today I started a new job. I’m now working at Farmers Insurance here in town. This is good news and bad news.

Hi, I’m Pete

So it dawned on me that while I’ve been blogging now for years here on my self hosted blog, and that lots of the people who read this know exactly who I am and what I’m doing.  However, with my recent uptick in all my social media endeavors, I’ve gained a lot of new followers and readers and should probably explain a bit about myself.

I got chased down the street

I had a very interesting night tonight. I went out today around 5pm and started working. All in all it was a very unremarkable night aside from the story that I’m about to tell.

Late Night Things caught on Video

Being a Rideshare driver is a lot of fun. I get to meet new people every single day. Every single hour. I get to hear different stories, and outlooks on life. I get to sometimes have deep discussions about things. I also get to see some crazy things with working the night shifts on the weekends. Last Friday night was no exception.
