Rush hour

I used to work in the city. And yeah, I already mentioned this in a post. It’s just that it weighs so heavily on my mind, I’m hoping that writing about it will be a little cathartic. Mornings are all go in our house. There are kids to get up and dressed, lunches to pack, [...]

I just work here

I started a new job a little over a month ago. The actual job, where I sit down and do the actual work, isn’t too bad. But I’m now working north of the city. I live south of the city. So getting here, taking so long to get here, having to catch the bus rather [...]

Time I checked in

As I said a while ago, I’ve been neglecting this space but there has been much going on at chez Drew over the past few weeks. The upshot of it all is that a few hours ago, I handed in my notice to my current employer. There has been no real bad feeling regarding seeking [...]

Suddenly rather tired

I’ve been neglecting this blog of late but with reason. Full-on job-search mode has been the order of the day, so every spare minute has been spent putting together a profession folio site. I had an interview this morning, which was a good motivator in getting the site up, so all I had to do [...]

Big jobs

I went on leave today. I have two whole weeks of anything other than work to look forward to. I’ve been looking forward to it for a while and it’s almost a little scary how quickly it’s come around. Most of this week, I’ve even been in holiday mode: not getting too stressed about things, [...]

Let’s go fly a…

I’m at a bit of a loss at the moment, feeling as though I’ve hit a wall in the career department. And I can’t stop thinking about a book my kids have, about a family who buy a hotel by the beach but realise quickly that it’s windy ten months of the year, so business [...]

Some walk by night…

I’m home from work, have made and eaten dinner, put the kids to bed and I’ve just had a power nap. Now watch as I turn the candle around and light it at the other end.

Long service

Just realised that yesterday marked my 6th anniversary with my current employer. What am I doing with my life?

You go to the toilet, I’m trying to edit.

I’m working on a really big project right now. It’s a bastard. Lots of text, lots of pages, lots of people who need to be sure that a lot of the text on a lot of the pages says what they want it to say. I’m in the middle, trying to make sure it says [...]

Work and not work

I finally broke the back of the bastard project I’ve been working on for the last month. In my department, we’re not supposed to be responsible for the accuracy of the information in this particular part of this particular project; the info is supposed to be correct when I get it. But once again, I [...]
