So, on Monday I go back to work. I don't talk about job stuff all that much in my blog, and for good reason: many employers don't like being talked about on the internet. To protect myself against any inadvertent repercussions, I just make it a policy to never mention where I'm working on my website. Of course, what I also will neglect to mention is when I'm NOT working because of that.
Well, from November until the end of March I was temping at a company. Since March I've been out of work and searching the want ads regularly. About a month ago, I got a call from my old supervisor the company I had temped at... saying they had a permanent opening and that I should apply.
Needless to say, I did so.
As you've probably figured out already, I got hired and start work there again on Monday. I'll effectively be doing the exact same thing I did while temping there. It's nothing exciting, but I like the people and I don't hate the actual work... and all things considered, that's enough for me these days.
Of course, that means my two months of no-work are over now, and I have to get used to waking up early and not spending my afternoons watching bad movies on Netflix Instant Play. It was actually nice to have a small break in there, an accidental spring vacation as it were, but life goes on and I have to go back to being responsible.
In other completely unrelated news, I've been working on some expansions for the No Brand Con Site Online Role Playing Game. It's an installation of "Advanced Dungeons and Rabbits" that I've been slowly hacking over time. I've installed a quest, added a world map to the Zone Mod, and overall made the game much bigger. I have a second quest I've been working on, but don't know if I'll get it up on the site as early as I want to.
Honestly, I keep considering installing something similar on TRHOnline.com, but I don't know if anyone would actually bother PLAYING it... so I never bother.
I really do like working on that kind of thing, but it's not really the programming parts that are fun... it's the design of the game and the expansions themselves. I just really enjoy world building I think. World building is just... fun for some reason.
