Haha I got in early!

I have made it through the recruitment hiccups and will be starting next month, cannot overstate how exciting this change of scenery is for me.

September is always a good month for Change, I should join a gym.

Been a little while since I've stopped in; I need to work on that.

My last update in May I said about not getting the job I had been waiting on. There was another one in the background that I had been wanting and it was partly luck that I saw the posting for it. Well I've got it! Or... at least... I should have it?

I'm now 4 months into recruitment hell, where the only information I get back about the process is if I call up and ask if everything is alright. I shouldn't be finding out this far down the line that basic ID documents haven't been accepted or that instructions that were meant to be included in my offer letter weren't.

I've been working on some artwork, it's taken me a little while to refine it and finish it up and I keep flip-flopping on whether I like it, or hate it entirely. Missed the deadline for the staff art gallery though; but I might write it up and post it on here if there's any interest?

Really cool explanation, I had seen some of this before but not to this level. Thanks for sharing!

Three day weekend -- good, was getting to the point of burnout. Things are going okay, I'm happy with where I'm at but I know it's going to get hectic very quickly -- always fun.

That's pretty cool, I wonder if we have introduced competing spores by sending our tech?

I didn't realise "stalkers" were a real thing -- having only seen the videogame series. Weird!

I didn't see any mention about whether this is contaminating the groundwater, either with radiation or gadolinium nitrate. Gross to think about really.

So my presentation did go well but it was always going to be a roll of the dice -- extenuating circumstances have meant I've not got the job I've been waiting 3 years for. I'm not surprised and can take this on the chin as good 'experience' but I think I'm allowed to be put out...

This is the end result of years of friends telling me I'm being taken advantage of and that I should move on, so it feels a little bit 'told you so'.

I have horrendous flu so I spent most of last night having a fever dream about a second presentation. I'm going to give it a go and put something together as I think my idea is a good one and it would give me a solid piece of project work under my belt if they would actually assign me some responsibilities.

Fantastic doggo goob!

Our insurance went up moving house, we're closer to a big road I guess? Our garden actually has a gate on it though so ours is safer and getting more exercise than ever!
