Its been almost 6 months since my last post.  Then I was feeling restless and unsettled in my new position after having just stepped out of teaching. I can’t quite say things are that different now, I think I didn’t quite sign up to do what I’m doing now, but 6 months after that last post, I think I’m much better settled in, and am largely convinced I’m capable of doing this job properly and am contributing in some way.

The change in immediate superior has been good, with a better sense of vision and planning, though that might just be a direct consequence of it being ranking+work review season soon.

Either way, half of my stint is almost up and I’m quite happy to say I think I’m doing quite well, ask me again in March/April next year (maybe when I next post) to confirm that.

Hope to post again sooner than then.
