It is March 1st, and I have returned. Oops! No, it is already the 2nd of March. I was writing this post in my head yesterday, but got distracted. Now I can’t remember how the rest of it was going to go. I haven’t posted in so long, I almost forgot how to navigate to the input form. Found it!
In the past month, I bought a new computer. I am gradually reinstalling programs as I need them, and recovering files from the old hard drive as I fill up the new one. My last computer was purchased in 2006, so this one is a major leap forward in both software versions and hardware speed. Change is difficult for me, but this transition is going smoothly.
I might also have employment in the pipeline. I am about to begin training to take a qualification test at the end of next week, which will get me into further training, which will lead to another test, which will eventually lead to a part-time, short-term project. It is the closest I’ve come to getting paid for work in over a year. Of course, I assume I will pass all of their hurdles and be really good at this job. The company is in another country, so the process is all done remotely — on the Internet, with my new computer. Let’s hope I have the discipline to work from home.
My time-management skills are greatly improved by having a routine. I used to make this blog part of my daily routine. Then came distractions. We shall revisit this subject in future posts, no doubt.
