    let me (re)introduce myself

    Hi,
    My name is hilldweller and I used to be a regular in here but I haven't been around in a while. I thought I would take this opportunity to reintroduce myself to Cyburbia.

    I live in the Capitol District of New York State where I work as a municipal planner. I am interested in cities and urban form/architecture, local and state planning regulations, environmental planning, politics, and the future of everything.

    To make a long story short, the reason for my absence from here was that I had a "falling out" with the profession. I actually quit my job after a particularly bad day at work and swore off planning for good, I convinced myself of this. For 48 hours. That was when I decided that my calling in life is municipal planning, as ridiculous as that sounds and as crappy as local government can be sometimes (well, most of the time). My employer took me back. The fact that I do need to eat did factor into my decision, I will admit.

    So I'm back and look forward to slacking with you guys

    Sounds like a Seinfeld episode, I'm trusting you didn't try to poison your boss though!

    It says a lot about your skills and abilities if your employer would re-hire you. Welcome back.
    Annoyingly insensitive
