So I haven’t posted since early November, making it more than 4 months since.  The end of the year break was a blast, Hong Kong and Bangkok were fun. 

In mid January I had a minor op on my knee, to clean up a torn meniscus.  Up to now its still bothering me because my leg is very stiff from the muscular atrophy.

Oh well.  Since Jan I’ve also been out of teaching in a totally new environment and I can’t say I’m totally enjoying it.  I still think its a good break from teaching, and the work is refreshingly new, but I guess I’m not used to sitting down the whole day and staring at a computer screen for hours on end.

It reminds me of the end of year data crunching I used to do for school, but now its every day.  And don’t get me started on the boss.  More than once I’ve thought about buying out my bond and going to the private sector.  Lucky (for him) the financial sector is cooling off this year, heh, if before the subprime crisis and credit crunch I think I might have gone already. 

Oh well, I gave myself until June to like the job more, or dislike it even further, so I will leave it till then.
