Time: a little after lunchtime, with 2 days left here
Mood: excited! after about 3mths of temping and debating with myself about having a career
or a job I have managed to find myself about to start work as a campaign coordinator for
a digital marketing/media agency.
When last I posted I was bashing my head against the wall doing powerpoint at a unfriendly research company. After 3mths of that I realised life was too short to be that miserable. One of the many good things that happened after I left was being taken to dinner at The Palisade Hotel on the stormy night i finished by Mr. Blue-eyes. It was the perfect antidote to unemployment.
So I soon landed here, well the red peg anyway.

For about a month I cycled down at 7am (I haven't seen so many sunrises in a long time) and worked with boiler makers and welders processing paperwork for the refit of the HMAS Success. This was surprisingly enjoyable and a refreshing change from female dominated workplaces. These chaps even apologised for swearing in front of me, how quaint...
The canteen was everything a canteen shouldn't be and was quite a culture shock from my time working at the food magazine.
The views however never let me down, as you can see in the posts to come...
