It's Started

Oh well, week two of the new job.
I did three days last week and got to see the new sites I'm working at. They look ok and there is a lot of new stuff to learn. Friday I payed a visit to Sky TV in London and was expecting to see glamourous offices and TV presenters, nothing special though. I still don't know where they park the space ship used to fix the satellite. I stayed at a hotel last week near Reading town centre, it advertised free wireless broadband, it was free but absolutely shite. The connection dropped out more than it was on, I couldn't even check email.

This week I am stopping at different place, it seems on first impression to be better albeit a bit more expensive. The wireless broadband works well as you can see from this entry. The owner gave me his password so I can use his connection, thanks Nabeel, just incase you're looking. I didn't need it though I switched on my PC and found four other networks all of them unsecure.

I need to find a house now q…

Changes

Its all happening, changes that is. We decided earlier this year that life needs some changes to spice it all up again. Move house maybe, change of job, location and even my hair doo, well maybe not my hair doo but everything else.
So Friday was my last day working here in the Midlands, my new terms and conditions were signed off by the boss man and I accepted a new position as a Senior Headend Engineer working in the Thames Valley. It took a while to get to this stage because of the department being at risk of redundancy and lots of moves happening. I first applied for the position in Southampton but just lost out at interview. A few weeks later it was suggested I apply again for the role in the Thames Valley, so I did and got the job. After a couple of weeks of negotiating I got the terms I wanted and accepted the role. We have decided to move to Newbury so the house will be on the market as of tomorrow (Monday) and the house hunt will begin. I'm thinking I should be a bit stresse…

Believer

As a Believer you believe the world has almost infinite possibilities. You believe people should be pursuing their passions and not be caught up by what others say they should desire. Your entire life involves continuously having new experiences and learning from them. It is the challenge, the risk, the prospect of what you can achieve that drives you, rather than simply making money. You're a self-motivated individual driven by your passion and so need a job and environment with loose boundaries and maximum freedom.
