March started with a very hectic schedule. Or just hectic, not sure if there was or is any schedule.

My Line Manager suddenly left with one week notice at the end of February. It was a shock since we always thought that he would be the Last Man Standing.

But moving on is something common in our industry. After all, most of the projects are nearing completion and the programme is slowly winding down. My contract here ends in June, at least that what we all know now.

Mind you, I don't even know where I will be going after this. But I'm looking forward to new challenges, changes, and opportunities.

No, I'm not planning to jump-ship.

Again, that is the beauty of the industry, or the company you work with.

I remember I once had the dream of working by contract, moving from location to location every few months or years.

Plus, I'm feeling a bit itchy feet now as well.

I'm sure the novelty will wear down and off eventually. But when you were young(er) and free(er), that doesn't matter.

Somehow other phases in life will just fall into place. Somehow. Someway.

Like you travel all you ever want, to everywhere your heart desires. You don't realise that there is such a thing as danger. Or that money will stop you achieving what you want to.

You simply just believe and go with your heart.

And then you meet the guy / girl of your dreams, the one that fits all your wishes and requirements. Suddenly, a well paying job, career, car, house, family and pets just fall into place.


It's called dreams, a limitless imagination. Fantasy you might even say.

Work now is hectic.

I love hectic. And my current famous words, ‘busy is good’.

It’s only day two of bigger project portfolio, bigger responsibilities, more tasks.

It’s still early.

Not like my 'whole life has gone up in smoke'.

But I really don’t mind a pay rise and promotion.
