Today was the first day of my 3 week long training course at work. It was tough and intense. I haven’t had to concentrate this hard since doing my HNC a few years ago and even then the lectures were much shorter.

During the course today, especially after prolonged periods it is very easy to get distracted and end up thinking about nothing. You then realise that you should really be paying attention and to stop thinking about thinking about paying attention. Is everyone still with me?

Still, I am by no means complaining. I am enjoying the challenge and it is interesting to learn how the new IT system my organisation will soon be using functions.

The lecturer leading the course is very professional and business orientated, his manner reminds me of Alan Johnson from Peep Show. You feel that if he was your manager and you pleased him there would be a few 0’s added to your salary and a new floor fitted to your house, yet piss him off and you would know about it the hard way.

He must be on a fair wage himself. He was drinking water from coloured glass bottles with screw on lids. You know you have made it in the IT industry when the company you work for supplies you with designer mineral water. It is still the cold water dispenser for me, a step up though from the tap in the office kitchen sink which I was using last year.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
