It’s felt like a lifetime since I last posted here. Since my last post Colonal Guddafi has been killed, Steve Jobs tragically passed away, Survivor has started again, Dexter has become my addiction and the earth in two days will hit a population of seven billion people. Seems a lot can happen in four months.
I’ll start with work. Firstly I still love my job and maintain that getting made redundant from Zap Technology was one of the best things to have ever happened to me. The new job has exposed me to the joys of working for a company where the staff aren’t constantly concerned whether they will have a job a week out from now. I won’t mention who my clients are at Unify, but needless to say they are some pretty big ones – both important government agencies and large international corporations. It’s a real thrill to have been given the opportunity and freedom to lead projects after only six months and it’s put me well on the path to the more management orientated roles I would like to be involved with in the future.
So yes, work is fabulous.
I can’t remember the exact date but it’s very possible I moved place since my last update. It’s my third address since moving to Canberra, which in itself is a somewhat chaotic tale but I’m now finally settled down with a lease and am happy with my living arrangements. Canberra really is an underrated city. I don’t say that just to delude myself so that I will like where I’m living, it genuinely is a lovely town. Definitely smaller than Brisbane but to be honest I dont find the two cities too disimilar. I miss having family and friends near by, but in terms of the actual city I don’t find myself wanting.
I’m coming up on seven months in Canberra, which in itself isn’t entirely significant but it does mean there is less than two months until Christmas. Despite what I may have said above, I can’t describe how much I’m looking forward to getting back to Brisbane for a few weeks to catch up with people and hopefully get around to doing some thing I’ve had planned. I’m sure the temperature will murder me after the sub zero winter nights here, but I’ll find a way to survive. Who knows, maybe I’ll get around to jumping out of that plane.
In closing, those that wish to are free to add me to Google+. It’s finally been opened up to Google Apps users, therefore I may occasionally consider the possibility of thinking about whether I in-fact want to use is.
