It’s been a whirlwind of a 2012 so far.
It’s only April, it already feel’s the year is nearly done, we’ve not yet had a summer, and I’m thinking about Christmas, so all in all, I’ve barely had time to stop and think. It has however, been the best year I could have imagined so far, wanting to do something, putting it into plan & then achieving it (to some degree) is a great feeling!
Works great, it’s lovely to be working for @servercentre, whom continue to amaze me at how things should be done, effortless & easy, it’s such a nice thing to be involved with. It’s like working with Germans, and we know how efficient they can be! I’m due a checkup at the GP’s before the middle of the year is out (#NHSExperience), (although if I was any more relaxed at the moment I’d be asleep) so I really must get onto that, but finding time what with my running, spending time with parents & still trying to arrange both a leaving party in London and a housewarming party here in Nottingham I’m really struggling for time across the board. Having said that an imminent trip to London happening as we speak will help that somewhat.
Other things have hit me at thirty-one also, an overwhelming urge to do all the ‘big’ stuff like buy a house instead of rent (although recent conversations suggest there’s no real benefit in this at the moment), take care of my parents more, want children, and generally you know, be a grown up. Whether I will be grown up or not will remain to be seen however!
- Moving house is so hard.
The industry I’ve grown up with and loved like a mother continues to move at a hundred miles an hour. I’ve seen the iPad3, moved to Blackberry (albeit a half and half measure), and even exhibited at the Convergence Summit North this year. It was fun to do a conference again, I miss speaking sometimes, & I miss mixing with shiney shoe’d aggressive IT sales people! They are all a bunch of *BLEEP*. I’m kidding, they are no worse than recruitment consultants and estate agents, and I’d put them all in a sack, float them out to the Antarctic, and take pot shots at them with a rifle!
The Convergence Summit is a bunch of Telecom based people getting together, showcasing the latest industry tech and networking in an effort to extend the channel, and sell within it & to each other & the business world at large(!). Its a great & interesting way to see what the future of Telecoms will be, which is basically your computer in a nutshell. Forget actually using a phone, that’s just going to go away. What to know some of my thoughts about converged communication in business, course you do! Head over to our company blog, and get the Lowdown on Microsoft Lync (here)
I’ve moved from London and don’t miss the place one bit. Boris, you can keep your over-priced, highly inefficient & crippled public transport infrastructure. Stuff it in the same place as your high priced taxes and badly planned Olympic games! Build that floaty airport on the Thames if you wish, whilst Terminal 5 continues to crumble under the strain of people, and in my opinion, bad design. Oh boris.
So it’s April, I still have lot’s to do, I’m hoping Christmas 2012 will be a good one, and I’ll be fully settled, there’s a lot hitting me at the moment, but I continue to grapple with everything, and port some form of semblance onto my thoughts, sanity and impatience.
