Working closer to home

I’’d like to work closer to home. I commute every day, it’s over an hour each way. About 50mins by Queensland Rail and 10––15mins by car between the station and home. Oh, and walking to work from the station in the city. Beats driving all that way though, and it’s good time to read (I’m reading The Eye of the World from Robert Jordan’’s The Wheel of Time series, and Rare Trades).

Here I am going off on a tangent again.

I would like to work closer to home. It’s high on my list of career goals. Thus it is with some excitement I can announce I have secured a job interview for Friday morning for a web developer position. If I get this job, I will be working one whole block closer to home. That should save me about 2––4 minutes every day.

Wish me luck 🙂

  1. Well, of course I wish you luck! If one friend can get that promotion she wanted, you can get the job you desire!Between preventing teenagers from drowning, I’ll try to send you good vibes!

  2. Hmm, there’s something fishy going on. When I read this post at uni.. uh.. during class when I was supposed to be paying attention to other students’ presentations.. I could see a dash between 10 and 15. I was in the Mac labs, using the Safari browser. Now at home, using Firefox, there’s no dash, so it looks like 1015 mins. That’s a whole lotta mins! (Likewise with 24.)But anyway, good luck with the job interview! 🙂

  3. You were right. I dunno why that happened, there were supposed to be en dashes there. Fixed now, thanks.And thanks all for the good wishes 🙂

  4. It went very well, hurrah.Though somehow I have since discovered I have someone else’s notes mixed up with my portfolio, and no idea how it happened.
