Uncertain Times

Apologies for my absence. It has been quite a while since I've written anything here. Due to certain developments at work, times have been tight. Overall, life in general is alright, although I wouldn't say all is well. Just last week, my company announced that they're planning to make 20% redundancy cuts to staff numbers due to the current economic situation. They've just started the consultation process and we should know in about a months' time on who will be going and who will be staying.

So come Christmas, I could be jobless. And trust me, with that kind of thought hanging over your head, you can't really enjoy yourself, whatever you're doing. Even when I chill out with friends over the weekend, the threat of losing my job is always at the back of my mind, forcing me to watch what I spend.

I haven't really thought about what I'm going to do if I'm made redundant. Any ideas? One that has been floating around my mind is to go back to university and do a PhD or an MSc. Or maybe go travelling. Or do a career change and become a chef, or a zoo keeper, or a shark cage diver! I've been told becoming a monk for a short period of time does wonders for the soul. Ideas ideas ideas.........
