Ok, so far too long and my plan of updating this every few days went totally out the window.
So where to start…
Well work is now back in Manchester which is very very good, enjoying being back there, does mean alot less traveling for me which is always a plus, and nice new offices to go with it. The downside I am always very busy and shattered by the time I get home.
My holiday to rhodes went great (and seems like ages ago now) got a little sunburnt but thats only because I am fair skinned. But can’t complain about the weather 35 degrees Celsius every day (and sometimes hotter then that) but 29 degrees at night so sleeping was hard. It was alot of fun and was a nice break from work (week and a half woot!) not sure where it will be next year… or if I could afford it.
My “get fit” plan closely followed the updating this blog out of the window, I keep getting determined to start properly but then I just… well don’t… although at the moment I am eating a lot healther.
I do have two new things which I love in my life. For starters a new guitar an Adam Black electro acoustic guitar which was a little expensive but totally worth it, it sounds so nice and I have wanted an acoustic guitar for ages, so happy I’ve got one now. Also last week after three weeks of waiting my nice shiny new Apple MacBook arrived, for years I have been using PC’s and windows but now I prefer using macs, they just work so much better and the trackpad on the MacBook is amazing, to use a trackpad on a normal pc laptop which doesnt allow two finger scroll etc is just frustrating.
ok so that was brief to say the least but I have caught up, kinda
Well…. I finished uni last June… since then I have carried on working at a general porter at my local hospital… something I have now been doing for five years… first couple of months were busy and I had regular days there so I was able to get some money behind me.
Sadly though things happened, changes occured and my days got less and less so I made a start of looking for my first “proper” job.
The months started to go by, the nights were longer and it got cold, I joined a temp agency with a hope of some work, I did a couple of days at a telecoms place where I was told to “slow down, your working too fast”… but that was it, they never found me any more work.
So Christmas came and went, I got ill over new year which made it very uneventful sadly but I continued to look for work. Things picked up slightly at the hospital and I did a few more hours here and there.
BUT, now just as March begins I can finally bring some good news… next week I am going to be working in Manchester as a Junior SEO (search engine optimisation) executive! I am looking forward to it, but also slightly nervous. My boss will be my neighbour which I dont mind and he has given me the first week as a trail to see if I like the work before I make any commitments, but I doubt I will not like it. I do also have an interview for a Trainee information analyst postition at Blackburn Hospital which would also be a pretty good job but the SEO position is more what I want to do with the rest of my life and interests me more.
Part of me is just glad that I can now stop searching and relax a little at home, for too long I have been looking for work, I just want to earn some money and buy a couple of things I want and save up some money for a holiday sometime this year for me and my gf as we both want a nice relaxing holiday someplace, I also really feel that I need to make up for the fact that we planned on going to Florence a couple of years ago but I overspent and ran out of money entirely. So we couldn’t go. We did spend a couple of nights in Edinburgh which was nice but I have always felt bad ever since.
So hopefully this time next week I should be writing again about my week…
unfortunately I will have to get a bus every day…. that will be a low point
