I lost my phone at the beginning of May. This was a bit annoying as it really is difficult to stay connected without a phone, especially while traveling.
I made it through the month with only a few minor hiccups (sorry if you were one), and I have come to the realization that I need to let my old phone number go. So goodbye 408-421-1588 the years were good, but it is time to move on, especially with the breaking up of the area code (no longer to be the 408). It doesn’t look like 669 is available yet, so I will either roll the dice or pick a word for an alternate phone number.
This idea comes from a colleague at UCSD who routinely changes his phone number every couple of years. I suppose that people who want to get in touch will find me, but I also expect a little drop off of people who only have the one number. To those folks I am sorry.
There is a lot of change taking place this summer, and at this point I am really looking forward to it. I have been stuck in a rut this last year trying to please people who don’t give a shit about what I am doing. It is time to move on, and this is an example of change.
So if you have my Google Number 864——- that is where I can be reached and it will eventually forward to my new phone when I manage to replace it.
