It’s that time of year when everything and everyone seems to be operating at 150%. Unlike most years, it’s not even Christmas itself which has kept me preoccupied, with that in some ways being a bit of an afterthought to a number of other things going on in my life right now. The first and largest change is no doubt my change of job.
Tomorrow we finally head off for Europe! The bags have all been packed, unpacked, repacked, unpacked again and contents photographed for insurance purposes and finally packed one last time. There’s really nothing else to do now than to show up at the airport and hope that everything goes smoothly, flights are on time and we arrive in the right spot all in one piece, hopefully with our bags.
It’s been almost two years now since I last posted here and in that time quite a lot has happened. Firstly, I’ve neglected the blog somewhat more or less because I didn’t have anything I felt a strong urge to post. The site lacks direction and I’m still a bit unsure what sort of content I want to put on here. Part of me is inclined to drop the personal posts and use it as a way to communicate more work related posts, but the jury is still out on whether thats something I want to do. In any event, I feel motivated to post something now, so lets see where this goes shall we?
It feels like an eternity since I posted anything here. That could be for a number of reasons, but I’m guessing the prominent one is that it has in fact been an eternity since I posted here. Anyway it turns out I’m still alive, and at times, kicking. In fact, not only am I still here but so is mankind in general. So much for the doomsday theories. Who’d have guessed it was a pile of crap all along? In order to waste a few bytes on some server somewhere I thought it’d be worthwhile doing a bit of a brain dump onto yours and my monitor.
Time may not fly, but it sure can go quickly. December is rapidly sneaking away from us and I’m only really now starting to think about what I will do in my two weeks break over Christmas. Really looking forward to the pilgrimage back up north and the opportunity to catch up with the people I’ve been missing ever since moving to Canberra.
I don’t really have much in the way of news to report as usual, so I thought it would be as good a time as any to reflect back on the year. Namely I might try and detail exactly what it is I am doing down here.
