Didn’t get it

I didn’t get the job mentioned in my last post.

I don’t know why, but I wasn’t expecting to get it, I don’t think the interview went too well.

Job interview

I have a job interview this week, on Thursday to be more specific, and I am spending most of today working on a five minute presentation I have to give.

I have selected which topic, of those offered as choices, to base my presentation on, and I mostly know my opinion on the topic. I am, however, finding it difficult to translate my random thoughts into a coherent presentation. That isn’t to say that it’s a difficult topic, just that I am very distracted, a lot of my attention seems to keep being dragged to my pending house move in four days time.

Quiet campus

It’s the start of the end of term break on campus now. That means all the students vanish for about a month, and most of the academics with them. I’m expecting things to be very quiet on the work front, except for the ongoing projects that don’t require too much academic input – a good chance to catch up on documenting for the Moodle project.

Despite the snow yesterday, it’s a sunny day today, but I doubt it will be warm enough to sit on the lawns at lunch, might have to wait a few more days before that becomes possible.

Third month

Into the third month of my new job, and all is going well. I haven’t really made the time to post a blog entry, but having just installed Flock to see how it’s coming along, it was a good opportunity to test the blog editing tool in flock, and to post a mini update.

It took a few weeks, but I’ve been set up in  my new office with a new PC for a while now. I’m on the third floor, so a little tiring a climb after walking up a steep hill to work.
