In Other News – 25 April 2016

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! For the millions in attendance right now and the millions more watching at home…Let’s get ready to tell this week to SUUUUUUUUUUUCK IT! Short weeks, could anything be better? Well yes, lots of things actually. Like instant riches, immortality, actual Iron Man armour and Hollywood announcing Freddy V Jason 2: Dawn of the Jugular.

But let’s not dwell on that, right?

In Other News: Prepare to do the Cossack dance yet again, the King of Fighters returns in August and thieves have hijacked another lorry filled with Nintendo merch.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy telling Nintendo that it’d be a right shame if one of their trucks went missing. A right shame.

  1. I only found out earlier today that Wednesday is a holiday, and my first reaction was annoyance because I thought I had 3 working days to get something done & now I have 2.

      I feel you, I really do.

      As I get older, I find this time of year to be troubling to my professional life, as we need to work on projects, R&D and that sort.

      It is true, you do, to a degree, turn into your managers. Hope they were good……

        Fortunately the bulk of my formative work years were spent with very good managers.

          I had a good mix, but the one who left the biggest impression, left very good examples AND very bad examples….. So I try to take the best that I can from that and be my own man.

      My grandmother, a very wise woman, explained to us that we need to find careers that make us happy, not chasing money. She said if you can find a job where, some or even most of the days, fly by, you are doing well. If you can, from that career, buy a big house and expensive cars, what a bonus. The end goal was to be happy and I think she is right.

        Think the truth lies somewhere in the middle finding something that you love enough and still able to make a comfortable living.

        I have been in the situation (luckily it was only short term) of effectively working 2 jobs to keep the lights on and stomachs full. The exhausting of a 16 hour day + stomach ulcers of financial worries quickly sucked the joy from doing one of the things I love.

        Lot of degrees and studies in very interesting fields out there which will put you in debt for the rest of your life.
