3 years...

I have been in my current job for three years. It's a rollercoaster ride, it is impractical for my studies, it separates me from my friends for long periods of time in barren foreign countries, I live abroad for years at a time, and I have to deal with the forcefulness of 'the system'... but I still like it!

I have to keep fit, I have to keep 'tied to reality', I remain practical, and have to socialize with many people, all day... sometimes working (for example) in a small hut with the same 10 people for 6 months... in a desert. All in all, it challenges me in many of my weakspots, and prevents me from over-using my strong points (computers!). So, as far as 'the challenge' goes, and for self-development purposes, it is still a very good job for me!

Anyway... been here three years; and at present I plan on staying here for another 10... or maybe another 20. There is little reason to change; no other job can offer the diversity and scope of this one!

Oh, and as a result of working late four days this week, most of us have today off. We deserve it!

Of course, you're missing one very important thing.

I miss you squirrel!!!!

Visit London soon, then Slimelight, yupyup?? xX


Well I done some good dancing at WendyHouse in Leeds last weekend, and went to a club in Berlin a few weeks ago... nothing really compares to Slimelight yet, but they're still cool.

I am trying to organize myself a week in London; I intend on staying for 5 days, and basically going to the British Library during the day, every day, and then Sam will arrive and join me for a weekend. Maybe I can squeeze in a Slimelight on Sat :-)

If I do a Brit. Lib. week, fancy joining me sometimes? Or at least meet in a Starbucks somewhere for coffee at lunch!

Don't know when it'll be though - got various things that my work might throw at me in Jan & Feb; from HGV-driving, minibus-driving or database design. Inbetween those (when I know the whens and wheres), I might have a week I can take off!
