… that thing I do, where I have forty skillion things to blog about, but I want my blog posts to be about one thing (each) so then when I sit down to type I get an idea logjam.
So, you know. What do you want to hear about? My job? My first international knitting field trip, that ended with me eating Chinese food on a sidewalk and falling into a hole? Ignatz’s new hobby? Parent-school (gag me)?” My recent whirlwind trip to Paris, or the upcoming, even whirlwindier trip to London? This problem is compounded by the fact that almost everyone who reads this is a Facebook friend, so you probably already heard most of these stories via status update, and I don’t want to bore people.
That’s mainly it: I don’t want to bore people. And now I will blatantly contradict this and tell you about my job.
I work for HTC. I’m physically located at the Benelux office in Utrecht, but my job title has EMEA in it (Europe, Middle East and Africa), and I now see why my brother never talks about work; my job is fairly interesting to do, but not to describe: I co-ordinate. So I sit in an office and go to meetings and write a lot of emails and make a lot of phone calls and excel files and flowcharts, which probably sounds fairly nightmarish to most people but I’m just so happy to be out of the house. Thrilled to be useful. Over the moon to be earning a real paycheck. And my co-workers are all really nice and there seem to be no weird office politics and I’m really happy with this job.
