Nice Work Jordan

Right on. I just got a call from my friend Jordan, who just got a job at Amazon and is stoked about it. You might remember that Jordan stayed with us while looking for an apartment in Seattle a few months back.

Since then he's graduated from college, gotten into the Seattle scene and hoped for the best as an independent entrepreneur. Since that's tough right outta college, he's going to work for the man at Amazon. I'm sure he'll dig it and put a few more roots down in Seattle.

It's been great to see him go through the whole process. It takes cahones to move to a new city without a job, but I knew he would get it rolling soon enough. Nice work Jordan!
