Then the scheduled visit to the Social Agency where I met with two delightfully friendly and helpful people (who unfortunately didn't want to appear on photographs). At least I have the luminous reception to show you! My father also joined me, being very … Continue reading Thursday
Started the day by applying for a pretty awesome job within business intelligence with plenty of opportunities for learning and growth. Requested skills were knowledge of programming languages like Python and good English skills, both of which I've got plenty. I sliced down my messy CV meticulously before applying and felt like a match. Memes … Continue reading Monday. Meming. Music. Munching. Meditation. Michael and More.
