A Short Update

…because it’s 10pm and I’m still in the office. So no ramblings about what I’ve been thinking about over the last seven days; instead, here’s what I’ve been doing. Continue reading “A Short Update”

New Year, New Office, Same Old Me

I don’t really go in for “New Year, New Me,” partly because I think it’s probably futile and also because there’s not a lot about myself I’d like to fundamentally change. I do have some plans for the year, and a couple of things I’d like to do more of, but no resolutions as such.

So, in true blogger style, I thought I’d steal borrow the whole interview idea and set up my own interview series.
