where is the time going

Hello all

Wow the weeks are passing very quickly now, probably because I’m working, I am still enjoying it, had a couple of bad moments but everyone gets those in there job.

But anyway its going good, am learning alot and also self learning alot, been doing some html/php work too which, currently (and as long as clients dont change their mind about how they want the site to look and the content every 2 mins) is my fav thing to do, buts that’s just because I enjoy making sites.

Talking of which my own personal site still requires alot of work but am looking to buy a domain for it from somewhere and maybe hosting. Other geeky things I may do soon include setting up my old computer as a server (not that my room has space) but I want to set one up with linux on, to have a mess about and for more space… but I’m not sure if that will ever happen.

Yesterday I bought wii fit (after being quite excited for it for a long time) and love it, I do *desperatly* need to get fit after spending too long pretty much sitting on my ass doing nothing, i think it will help, will also try going for a run or bike ride or maybe to the GYM! So hopefully next time I update this I will be saying how I’m feeling better etc…. or how many bones ive broken after falling off the wii balance board like a idiot.

right, im gonna go… things to do… life is so much busier now!

oh and i’m experimenting with micro blogging… yes I have joined twitter.. where my profile can be found here


Week 1

What a week… I didn’t end up doing a full week of the trail but started on Wednesday instead. So far I’m quite liking it, only been reports so far but that’s not too bad (remind me of this in a couple of months!!!) although I am looking forward to starting work on the actual “work” side of things (paid search, ad-words etc etc)

And of course there are certian fun sides, first thing to do in the morning, get in, check email, quick morning chat then starbucks (the mocha I had this morning could be a new fav) and for the first two days it was Subway for lunch… although today it was Wagamama’s (soo much food!!!) things are quite relaxed which is nice.

Other things this week. Tuesday I had the Information Analyst Trainee interview which went well… the short logic/excel test went ok, the logic was easy apart from one anagram question but I do really need to brush up on my excel skills, but the interview itself went very well, usually I’m nervous but this time I was calm and seemed to do a good job of it. I did get a call from them on Thursday but I was at work so I couldn’t take the call…. or at least I think I couldn’t… but anyway don’t really want to push it for my first month!

The information analyst job is good, but it would be a big step away from what I want/like doing (the web), with my current job I keep that, it’s not my original idea of being a web designer but its a step in the right direction.

Unfortunately this week also brought some bad news, my Grandma died in her sleep on Tuesday night which wasn’t the best news to wake up to on my first day of work. I didn’t get to see her that much even though I only live about 20 mins away but I wont go into that or I would be writing all night. I do miss her and I feel guilty as I did promise her that I would go visit her “soon” but never really got round to it, which I know, sounds bad. In a way it is for the best, she wasn’t very well and in pain every day so I am glad she doesn’t have to suffer though that any more.

So anyway that’s the first week and I have gone on now for over 400 words which must be a record for me. I am starting to understand the importance of blog’s more, and can see myself updating this one more frequently (although it is more of a Journal)

right that’s over 450 words, time for me to shut up
