Absence makes the heart grow fonder…


The reference there is to blogging. ๐Ÿ™‚

Looks like the last time I blogged was on July 3. I shake my head at how long ago that was, but to be fair, I’ve been working my butt off at work, often extending long into the night. I managed to meet two major deadlines by putting the extra effort in, though I doubt that will be recognised — not a lot of positive vibes where I hang out during the working week. However — that is all about to change, because I have just been offered a new position, so I leave this job on August 10 and start my new one, as a training specialist with the TAFE system in Queensland on August 20.

I’ve done a lot of training in the past and I enjoy imparting knowledge to people. This position will be a combination of face-to-face and distance learning for the staff of the system — blended learning I guess you could call it. What is even better is that it goes hand in hand with the Masters program I am trying to finish off, so there’s a two-way benefit from it; the ability to use real-life experiences in the pursuit of my own learning, at the same time bringing in some of the theories of adult learning that I have amassed in my head over time. The position is based in the city, which is fine by me — I like the feel one gets from being there — there’s a certain vibrancy, and at the end of the day there are many options for having a bite to eat, drink and relax. One “dangerous” thing for me is that there are 2 Apple resellers in the area, so I may have to be careful in that regard, given my interest in Apple gear. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend — this old body of mine needs some rest. I guess that’s what happens when one pushes the envelope at work.

Better get myself off to work….have a great weekend!
