And so I am!
What a rock-n-rolling year it’s been with more changes and what feel like 100-foot waves crashing down all around me that it’s been a constant battle to stay upright, much less positive!
Let’s start the ball rolling with that new job I had planned to start this year. Bottom line, it did not work out. Too large a difference of opinion on too many key points that everything just fell apart. C’est la vie.
So, with no full-time job, what’s a guy like me to do? Well, get some new contracting gigs while applying for a new job, of course! 🙂 As exciting and busy as that’s been, though, I have to admit that I’ve been a lot busier just going through all the motions of admin setup/ paperwork with EI, etc, than being on actual contracts.
However, I know there are a number of opportunities opening up in the next few weeks so I just have to keep plugging away and hanging on… all the while keeping a very close eye on the flow of cash because bills still have to be paid, of course.
I am very close to finding out if I got an amazing job/position/role/ call it what you will, which is very exciting. Interview #4 was today and it went superbly well (as far as I could tell 🙂 )
Writing-wise, I’ve had to scrap and re-do my 2011 plans. It happens, but if this new plan works out, I’ll be quite happy with the progress. As always, time will tell 🙂
So there you go. I just wanted to pop in here and say ‘hello’ after trying to catch up with everyone yesterday morning. Did you know you can’t go back more than 600 messages when reading through your full friends pages? That’s as far as the system will let you go, but at least I did read them all 🙂
Hopefully I’ll be able to get back here more regularly. I still have a definite need for LJ and I want to make use of it, even if they end up being mainly private entries.
