On Working…

Well, I have started my new job in tier 1 tech support for [NDA] Inc.

Of course, I can’t talk about it. The first rule of Fight Club and all that. But 3 weeks of training out of 4 down, and I’m feeling OK about getting through this job. While it doesn’t pay nearly as much as Eat More Chicken did, at least I have my nights and half a weekend again. And I was able to get me a shiny mac mini out of the wages, so I could set the bugger up as a media machine, which I’ve wanted to do for a while, but that’s for another entry.

The only thing that bothers me? Training is taking place in a big metal box, in one of the most humid and warm months Ireland has had in a while. I’m sweating my balls off daily and it can be more than a little uncomfortable.

Thankfully, the main job won’t be that warm and has aircon. So, warm in winter, cold in summer. (Note for non-irish readers, While I may say “Summer” and “Winter”, please don’t take that to mean we have a standard climate. We have two seasons, the Wet Season, and the Wetter One. It’s just we’re more used to more subtle variations.)

Basically the point of this post is to say, I’m back from holidays, back from real life stealing time and feeling slightly more productive than last time.

Have fun and I’ll see you on the flipside.
