The new job: two weeks in

And still not dead.
And not hating it yet.
And, actually enjoying the work.

The company is a small environmental consultancy, specialising in mining, particularly small scale mining.
I get the feeling that I am intrinsically linked to mining and will never actually escape this industry. It’s not all bad though, as long as I’m not actually employed by a mining company, I think I can live with myself.

When I say small consultancy, I mean small. Four people working for the company, including me. This means that basically I am a valued employee. It also means that no-one has time to micro-manage me. Both are good things.

This also explains why I’m not posting so much random crap. No time at work, and when I get home I’m too tired. I am not used to this working five eight-hour-days a week nonsense. Ah well.

They don’t seem to have come into contact with open-source software either. This is something I am going to remedy, but perhaps I should first figure out how to do my job properly before putting my Linux Zealot hat on.

    Welcome back to the working world dude! I know how you feel, our company only has 2 people officially 🙂 Glad that you are enjoying it!

  2. Hey Neil

    Glad to see you are back! With no posts for a month or so I thought you had abandoned waffling… or something worse.

    Glad you are enjoying work. Hope it continues 🙂 What are you actually doing on a daily basis, and what is the name of your co?

    Or maybe I should mail you… this is getting too long.
