Time flies. It’s nearly been a month since I started my new job. Unbelievable! It still feels very relaxed, but it’s not just the job that’s a bit more gentle – it’s living here in general.
The other exciting thing is that I’m learning an awful lot, but it’s mostly practical stuff, rather than making it up as I go along (= PhD). I continue to see a lot of holes and keep getting irritated, and still have little struggles with IT who continue to amaze me with their poor communication and general project management skills.
Next Monday, a colleague is leaving, and I’ve got my eyes set on her laptop. It’s slightly better than mine (mine = the 256MB – crutch) so I need to set things into motion to get my greedy fingers on it. I need to construct a ‘business case’ and argue the obvious – otherwise IT will just take it away and probably allocate it somewhere else, or store it in a cupboard somewhere.
Alternatively, I could just keep my mouth shut and stick with my crutch, continuing to work happily and relaxed, at a very slow pace 😛
