Graduated with my Bachelors last month. Looking into taking the GRE for Grad School and then hopefully looking for a job (any job) and some internships/volunteer positions at museums so I can build my resume

Gratz to you too! I got my Bachelors in May of 2017. Good luck on Grad school. History major I take it?

I understand the desperation to find any decent job after school. I did a temporary office job after graduation for a few months, which was neat experience, but something I could see myself getting bored with after a year or 2. I regret not doing any internships in school, which I attributed to working near full time and providing for myself, but I probably could have found something paid if I had been a little more gutsy. I refused to do unpaid internships on principal. I live in a fairly large city with some big companies, but it always feels like they hire older adults with direct experience, even after I felt I did really well on an interview. Its one of the reasons I've considered moving to a different city with a stronger economy. The better part of me says I should just settle down and work full time for a couple years. But i'm not sure i'm ready to commit to a boring corporate job just yet. My bad half wants to get my hands dirty starting a small business of my own (while probably working a boring corporate job anyway).

In other news I've been planning when my next international trip will be. Its a bit ways off, but I'd really like to visit Europe in early/mid 2018. I'd also like to visit Montreal and/or Quebec, Canada this year if my work schedule allows.

I start a new software engineering position on January 22nd. It pays 8% more than my current software position and is a more senior-level position as well.

I'm going to give my notice at my current company probably on Wednesday.

Congratulations! Working with any particular stack?

.NET

The application analyzes historian data from various automated processes and determines anomalies in the data that might indicate when a component is in risk of catastrophic failure.

The main application (which I'm one of the three principal programmers on) is WinForms. There's a desire among the team to rearchitect it in WPF, which is part of the reason they wanted to hire me because no one before me had any WPF programming experience. I actually have more WPF experience than WinForms, but I began Windows programming in MFC, which is the precursor to WinForms.

There is also a Web component of the application and data analysis algorithms which are handled by other members of the team.

I'll also be doing a bit of SQL programming, though, there are some on the team that are focused on the database side of things.

So essentially, I'm doing full-stack desktop development, with a concentration on the desktop front and back ends. I would like to get a bit more experience in Web Dev, though.

I've been hooked on Crusader Kings 2.

You'd think after chopping off a guy's arms, legs, penis and then proceeding to slice his nose off and then plucking out one of his eyes... you'd think that he'd finally get the message that plotting to kill your son isn't the smartest of ideas.

I should've killed him at this point but in all honesty, I kept him around as a work of art. I figured I'd wheel him out, whenever the in-laws came over.

CK2 is an amazing game with amazing stories to experience. My friends played once and one of them became immortal, lost and then REGREW his penis at least five times.

As for me, we played a game where we made Jewish characters in the Middle East trying to recreate the Kingdom of Jerusalem. Anyway, my first guy became obsessed with astronomy and built an observatory, which eventually lead him to a cave in the desert. What did he find? The Fucking Necronomicon. So that was neat, made him smart but drove him to insanity which lead to his death. Welcome to CK2
