I got a job. All through summer I had been looking for one but without any luck. I had sort of settled for looking for one I didn’t really like (i.e. a non–computer job), but then I got contacted by an old acquaintance of mine. (Everything is relative, but someone I hadn’t spoken with for two years prior to him contacting me, is old in my world.)
He invited me for a job interview at ToonPrint A/S. I went to the job interview on Friday, had a try-out day on Monday, and started full-time on Wednesday.
I have now been there for a few weeks, and it’s a great deal of fun. The co-workers are nice, the tasks are different from what I have previously done — mainly generating print files with PHP.
The only thing that could be considered a minus is the commute. The office is located in Køge, which is about 40 kilometres from where I live. This means that for the first time in my life, I can’t rely on my bike to get me where I need to go — which has been the case with the schools I’ve attended, and the places I’ve worked.
But I don’t really mind. I like riding the train — as long as it’s not too crowded — and I like having an hour to relax before I start working.
It does mean that I have to schedule dentist appointments etc. in the early morning, because I can’t just take a break from work to do it.
I cope with this, and currently enjoy myself a lot. It’s great to be back in employment.
