Quick Update

9 June 2007 · Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Last blog entry February 9. Contacted recruiter in New Zealand February 14. Life accelerated to warp speed in matter of days. Coming up for air.

It snowed on February 14. Because it snowed, I didn’t go in to work. Because I didn’t go in to work, I had time to poke around a New Zealand jobs site. Because I poked around a New Zealand jobs site, I got in touch with the cool people at Potentia. Because I got in touch with Potentia, I got an interview with a cool company in the far north of NZ. Because I (apparently) did well in the interview, I got a job offer with said company. Because I got a job offer in New Zealand, I moved to New Zealand!

Moving here took a lot of mental space. Maybe it’s not that way for everyone, but I suspect it is to some degree. In any case, I have had other things on my mind than blogging for the past 4 months. Things like: finding a place to live in a foreign country where I didn’t now anyone, securing a work permit so I could start working, starting work so I could get my own rental house, buying the bare essentials for said rental house, remembering to drive on the left side of the road, etc., etc., etc.

Anyway, I don’t want to make any promises, but I hope to be blogging occasionally again now that I am settling in in my new home, New Zealand!

PS: We’re hiring!
