10:39 pm - Endings and beginnings.
Tomorrow is my last day at my current job. I've got rather mixed feelings about leaving there.
It's been a great place to work; interesting projects with some really great people to work with. I've learned a great deal as well as got a few good names to put on my CV.
It's been one of the few jobs I've had that I've really enjoyed working with.
That said, there's definitely stuff I won't miss; but that's only to be expected.
I'm going to miss the guys there, hopefully I'll keep in touch

I've got some free time coming up next week, during which I intend to try not to fret too much about life and get some projects done; but mostly I'm going take the much needed rest.


rigth now i'm feeling generally tired and, consequently, a little emotionally unsteady; Definitely need to check out that kendo dojo near the new office. I think a few hours of screaming and regimented violence each week would do me the world of good.

  • 10:43:27: Woo! Got another interview! Just got to sort out a time :)
  • 10:46:22: RT @Lizardbeth: This photo makes me smile. "Starbuck and Starbuck in Starbucks" http://bit.ly/ifNGt8
  • 11:19:44: Damn. didn't get the job I interviewed for yesterday. Ah well, they only wanted to pay £28k anyway; On to the next one!
  • 12:31:23: Gah! looks like I miss read who that rejection email was from. It seems i'm still in the running for that job from yesterday :D
  • 12:32:33: I seem to get a kind of masocistic thrill from the whole emotional roller-coaster that is job hunting XD
  • 12:35:24: @sphelx I'm gunning for the £30k-£35k mark this time around. £28k is the very low end of what i'll take.
  • 12:39:17: @sphelx It turns out people will part with reasonable amounts of money just for you to code javascript and stuff!
  • 12:58:40: @sphelx I didn't seriously get into it before moving back to England. Download some tutorials, get a junior lev job for a year then £££
  • 13:29:19: RT @Cunthorse: I'd like a GlaDOS satnav. "You're not a good person, you know that? Good people don't end up here. Do you even know where ...
  • 14:37:41: YEAH! Another request for me to come in for an interview. :D
  • 15:20:05: @sphelx The trick is to start with basic logic ops (if, else, and & or) and build up from there. sytax can be ref'ed on google as needed :)
  • 17:41:56: Woo! Yet another interview!

  • 00:03:33: Cv updated and the no. Hunt has now begun! Maybe that's why I cant sleep right now.
  • 10:37:57: @SciStarborne I've never had that work for me before. Besides, who's going to hand over an extra 10k if you've got no leverage?
  • 10:41:40: Wow, I'm actually getting missed calls from recruiters during calls to recuiters 0_o
  • 20:08:14: 5 recruiters talked to before work. 30 voicemails from others and just as many emails. Kinda burned out but a good sign.
  • 20:09:58: Not sure if boss has Sussed I'm job hunting or if he just doesn't like the remote working situation.
  • 20:11:38: Either way he balked at paying for me to get into work the most speedy way. It would only cost as much as my rent.

  • 17:46:12: Work wants me in the office every day for next week or two. Seems they find remote management hard. Maybe time to start job hunting again.

  • 08:55:20: Some kind of security alert on the trains. Everything is running a couple of hours late.

  • 17:45:01: @Unciaa considerng i'm running it on a 7 year old machine without problems I'm quite impressed XD
  • 17:46:27: just finished Crysis 2. a good game and technically very impressive. but I can't help but feel it lacked a certain something. no idea what.
  • 19:29:41: @spazfox likable characters, more than 2 useful weapons, engaging environments; nope didn't spot any of those either.
  • 19:31:21: @spazfox in fairness it DID have quite a cool premise and some moments that could have truly great. but It failed to capitalise on any of it
  • 19:32:45: @spazfox sorry, I forgot it was a EA game. Anything beyond "I got a BIG gun!!!" kinda falls outside their sphere of giving a damn.
  • 19:35:58: @SciStarborne WTF!? O_o

  • 19:20:37: RT @Queen_UK: Yes, one can confirm that 'Captain America' is one of one's official titles, although one plays it down.
