Yesterday was my first day of work at Google in New York. I reached the Google offices for my orientation about an hour earlier than I was supposed to, but I loitered around the area for a couple dozens of seconds because of nervousness. There wasn't any real reason to be nervous, but I still get anxious whenever I start at a new place. It helped calm my nerves that my wife was with me while I was loitering, though.
Welcome to my world! The world you have just entered is a pretty bland one. I work, play, and travel just like any person. I do have some uncommon interests and an occasionally warped perspective. This world has yet to reflect many of my eccentric qualities, however.
My full name is Yoo Chul Chung, and I am not a very talkative person. This is true for both my online and offline lives, which explains why I have not been a big fan of instant messaging or parties. I can’t help it, so if someone dies of boredom while talking to me, please don’t arrest me.
I maintain the blog Stochastic Scribbles, where I write about anything random that catches my fancy.
It's been exactly a month since I've started working at Midokura, and I am already leaving the place. I'm not leaving because of a problem with me or Midokura; rather, it's because I got a job offer from Google, and after quite some thought, I've decided to change jobs. It feels pretty awkward because it's been such a short time since I just started a new job, but at least it was great while I was at Midokura.
I have just started work in my new job as a Senior Engineer at the startup Midokura, which focuses on providing software that can be used to build cloud computing infrastructure in data centers. While its headquarters are located in Tokyo, Japan, the office I will be working at is in San Francisco.
Today is my last day at the National Institute for Mathematical Sciences. It felt really weird when I was leaving. Anyway, soon I will be back in the United States for a new job.
I and my fiancee have just registered for marriage. Woohoo!
