Started a new job and I had to A) learn this job during the handover process, B) hand over my old job in the same handover process and C) Learn what I may need to do once the organization finishes it's restructuring.

HR is so far backlogged with work that I started this job last week, they were aware of the change the month prior, and I only just got my contract today. I very nearly threw the whole thing in for another job, that's how long it was taking to generate some paperwork.

On the plus side, the new job is cool and full of very friendly people.

My partner is off getting her wisdom teeth removed (her dentist is in another city, made sense for him to do the job) - this is the first time we've been in separate beds all year. I tried to starfish but wound up sleeping on my side anyway, cute.

Was ANZAC day here on the 25th. To me it's about rememberance, and mourning the massive loss of life. Not so much thanking the soliders, but apologizing for sending them away in the first place. The service in my city is normally very sombre, and I hope it continues - to show the coming generations that ANZAC day is about mourning the tragic event.

Lest we forget.
