It's time to draw the curtain on this blog. I simply don't have time to write for leisure anymore. With Wenty starting her wall sticker business and me starting a new job in less than three weeks and us wanting to spend lots of quality time with Rafa, time is becoming more and more precious.
Oh I just handed my resignation letter to my boss last week. After the last interview that didn't work out (that job required lots of traveling), I thought I would stay put for a while. May be at least until I become eligible for my long service leave as I only have less than 2 years to serve to get that.
However, a good opportunity came up and I was in between major projects at my current work and got stuck doing rather uninteresting work and not learning anything. Rather than continue doing something I don't enjoy for a few more months and waiting for the next major project to come along and hoping that I will score a significant role in that project, I took things in my own hand and grabbed this new opportunity with both hands.
The chance to work with a group of technically smart people working on cutting edge cloud and web based technologies are simply too good for me to pass up. I'll be busy keeping myself and my hands on technical skills up to date in my spare time. It's gonna be a very exciting year ahead for both myself and Wenty.
It'll be a bit sad saying good byes to my current workmates. I've spent over 5 years there and you don't spend 5 years at a place without developing some bonds. But hey life has to go forward and nobody expects to stay with the same employer forever these days.
Same with this blog, it's time to move on. I will keep it online as some old posts may be informational and useful to some people but I'll set some of the more personal posts to draft mode when time permits as I have shared way too much information in the past. Wenty's website comes with a blog so we will be posting there once in a blue moon if we have something interesting about her business journey to write about.
Good bye and thanks for reading my ramblings.
