End of Days

Yesterday was my last official day at work. It was my last official day in the old flat.

That means today I'm living in a new place with Barabara. Oh, and I'm unemployed ;)

There have been times in the last weeks that I've felt I can't multitask working one job while looking for the next. I think I was being hard on myself - two tasks are easy, but I'd been juggling a move to a new house as well. Needless to say it has been a stressful period.

So I'm glad it's all over now.

So much to do, so little time...

As always, I have a sky-high pile of things to do, with a series of sharp deadlines coming up. There's the furniture shopping and the other preparations for the move, there's the final round of projects to polish off for work, there are the new personal websites I'm putting together myself, there's the job-hunting, interview preparations etc. Phew!

Still, I welcome the activity - there's something about being overloaded that I find almost relaxing.

Got to get back to work - I'm really busy don't you know...

Job Hunt Continues

Portfolio compilation, website creation, file organising etc. These are some of the tasks involved in the hunt for a new job.

It's all a minor pain in the arse, but it needs to be done nonetheless.

Best Intentions

I ended the week as I normally do: planning on working on the weekend, with the intention to get ahead with my remaining tasks.

I started the weekend the same way I always do: doing a whole lot of nothing, passing the time until the Arsenal (or any other football) match starts. They played at a high intensity today - both teams did to be fair - we didn't capitalise on our chances, and had lots of opportunities to win the game.

Headache

I have a splitting headache - no idea where that came from. Barbara seems to think it's because we spent the whole day inside a shopping centre, and she may have a point, but the headache seemed to kick in before we left. I don't know.

Working Towards...

I have a todo list the size of everest this morning, and I don't know where to begin. I don't know how to fit it all in, it seems like time is running out.

Yet experience tells me there's enough time for it all. I know I've got to buckle down and get started - but I really need a moment of silence to myself. Unfortunately the builders that started before 7 this morning had other ideas - all I can hear is their roof repair work for the block next door.

Welcome to Hub Blog

A first post on my new blog. I need to edit the theme and update the URL etc, but every journey of a thousand miles begins with a first step...
