How Long?

How do some people manage to keep a diary for each day of their lives? Surely only drama queens can commit something to paper daily (or hard disk these days) as nobody's life can be so interesting?

Anyway, a crossroads approaches. At least, I'm approaching a crossroads. Many months of hard work in helping to release a new piece of software is coming to a head and I'm currently implementing in anger. Quite literally. Development ignored many of my requests and error logs, so the same issues which were around in September are now in the release version.

This is a big time for the company. It's only relatively small and the entire future depends on this release. Given the general mismanagement of the program, I've started responding to some of the calls I get from agencies. This isn't so much because I'm completely fantastic and warrant dozens of calls (although there is an element of truth there <_< ), but because I submitted my CV to Jobsite.co.uk ages ago and lost the login details so I was unable to remove my CV...

The result of all this is that I had a final interview for an Oracle position in Teesside on Friday. The interview seemed to go well and the agency gave some positive feedback. Just awaiting on a decision, and if favourable, package details.

Also, I went for an interview in Norwich yesterday for another Oracle position. I don't have quite the same positive feelings towards how well that went; a few knowledge gaps I think.

On the other hand, I like the company and people I currently work with. I suppose you can't always let these things get in the way of progress. Still Norwich is a long way away, and Teesside is even further! On the positive side, I guess there'd be more chance of snow!

Finally, someone at work has decided to do some matchmaking and has given me the email address of her friend. I may just send that mail right now.... Seize the moment!

Ah, the ramblings of a single white male. Correct me if I'm wrong!! :whistling:

You sound like you need to chill out a bit big man. Hope you get the job you want though, and hopefully the matchmaking will work out for you.

Correct on both counts. Is it that obvious? :lol:

Received an email back, so I'll give her a call tomorrow. It's been a while since my last relationship ended rather sadly...

Off to New York on Saturday, so that will give me a chance to chill out, quite literally judging by the forecasts!

Mr. WhiteFox... as NW's leading blogger I could take offence at your comments... but since I'm also a self proclaimed Drama Queen, I won't.
