So I got a new job with the same company I have been working for for the last couple of years, as of Monday I am officially their automotive test driver.
"This car is not a pickup truck and therefore rubbish"? ;)

Basicly.....my first assignment is testing a new transmission for a 'mayor French automotive group' as I'm obligated to say.

I just need to figure out a way to politely say: "It's crap, but that's ok, it's going into a crap car", in a meeting :p

"The transmission operated in some unexpected ways for a daily runabout."

"The product is working and lasting as expected within the clients expected parameters" sounds slightly better then "it's gonna go bang after 50k kilometers but nobody is expecting any better from a french POS"

For the first time ever, I've done a certification for my job. I am now an "iSAQB Certified Professional for Software Architecture - Foundation Level".
So, a little less than two years later... I'm now an "iSAQB Certified Professional for Software Architecture - Advanced Level". :)

This was much harder than the previous certification, so I am very relieved that it's over now. And also a bit happy that I was actually successful. :D

So uhhhhhhh ya boi's got a new job! :D

Just finished my first week and I love it. It's full remote, I'm specializing in Apple stuff like I've wanted since taking on administration of that platform at my previous job, the benefits are great and the pay.....i couldn't say no to it, it's a major upgrade from what I was making working at the school district.

First thing I'm doing with the extra income is paying down debt and building a emergency fund. Then I'm figuring out where the fuck I'm going to move to.

Maybe in a year or two Ringmeet will be a possibility for me..who knows?

Oh right, I was supposed to bump this thread as well..

From the start of this year I've had a steady day job, for the first time in my life. A slight change to random project work and side jobs. And like Rick, the pay has gone up as well, as I'm doing regular work, rather than what I need, or feel like. But that was my own choice before.

This evening I finally finished the Dutch novel I bought. I only rarely found the energy to read it, and took it one chapter at a time, that's why it took very long - I don't even know when I started reading it. Also I'm very not used to reading anything longer than a few paragraphs at a time anyway, thanks Internet.

Reading a book in a language you basically only know from Duolingo is exhausting. But although I didn't understand everything - far from it - I generally got the gist. :)

I don't drive, I fly.
Did an interview for a Biology teaching job. First impressions are good. Will possibly get a second interview, now with the actual school instead of the hiring company.
