This is Vegas

My ex-employer, Surreal Software, just announced 'This is Vegas'. I've been waiting to hear about this title since I was working on it back in 2005 =] I can't wait to check it out when it arrives.

There are a few things I wish I could just spill my heart about, but maybe its just not the right time right now...

Its 2008. I have the feeling this ain't going to be the best of years. For me, I think its going to be a lot of transitioning and experimenting. The ghouls of my past are still chasing me and they drive me mad.

I see all these things happen around me, and sometimes I think to myself I know better. Though, I'm far from claiming that I know how the world works; in fact, the older I get the more complicated everything is seeming to become.
I'm used to seeing everything very clearly and am pretty good at staying laser-focused on those things that matter. Is that a good thing or not? Lately, I've been forced to face some of the realities I have been avoiding for many years and all of a sudden I'm asking myself 'can I still continue to keep things simple?'

I'm starting to see more of the weaknesses I have developed with my strengths. Or better put, its not possible to be everybody. It's like that enneagram personality test thing.
