I’m a miserable fuck, and I’d had a pretty shitty 12+ months to November 2013. Things have been pretty awesome since the beginning of 2014, so I need to keep this as a reminder - for any forthcoming bad times - that things weren’t always so shitty.
That’s all for now.
A list of some of the things that I need to focus on, to remind me, because I have been having a torrid time of dwelling on the unimportant, unproductive and damaging things in life.
Focus #1: Getting fit
Focus #2: Writing (Fiction?)
Focus #3: (New?) Career
Focus #4: Reading
Focus #5: Tristan
I just made this up a few months ago while getting back into cooking for myself. It’s nothing to look at, but it tastes great, kinda sweet but a little spicy too, so I make it every time.
Ingredients listed in the order I put them in:
Coconut milk (1 can)
Medium curry powder (3 tablespoons)
Chopped tomatoes (1 400g can)
Tomato puree (2 tablespoons)
Garam masala (1 tablespoon)
Turmeric (1 teaspoon)
Heat until reduced. Yum.
Here’s an advert for a position that I came across this evening:
[CompanyName] is looking for enthusiastic individuals with a proactive attitude and the willingness to learn and develop within the company.
[CompanyName] is looking for a young person, probably straight out of college/university that will do the work of fourteen people and like it, then maybe, just maybe, they will be allowed weekends off, sometimes.
The role will involve working in small and flexible customer-focused software development project teams
You will work on your own, to unreasonable deadlines, and you’ll be expected to answer emails and telephone calls from clients 24/7.
Applications from recent graduates with an excellent higher degree in a mathematical, scientific or engineering discipline are welcomed.
The younger the better, because you have no salary expectations.
Due to the nature of our work, only candidates who are likely to be eligible for UK security clearance can be considered for the position.
No immigrants, you’re too clever.
