tran·si·tion (trn-zshn, -ssh-)n.

1. Passage from one form, state, style, or place to another.


It’s a word that encompasses my whole life right now…


I am involved in exactly that. A Transition.

Moving Server hardware, software and management responsibility from one company to another (my new workplace). So far it has involved a lot of writing, meetings, failed testing and research and I’m jack of it.

Can’t wait to get my hands dirty, feel useful and actually SEE the environment that I will be working with.

Apart from that I think I will like the place. It’s just a frustrating beginning.


I will be living in 3 different places over the next 6 weeks or so. I feel displaced and uncomfortable and unorganised.

They are similar to the feelings I had last year when roaming around and trying to find a place to live for a year in DC, but it’s harder to accept in Canberra because I am living at home here and I just want to settle down somewhere.

It’ll happen soon enough I guess, but it’s going to be a hard 6 weeks.


I think I have felt like I have been in a transition in my personal life for a couple of years now, but it feels like I am in the tail end of it now.

I am taking things slow and feeling my way into it, but so far, so good.

One of the big things I have decided is that I have to learn from my mistakes in the past, and make sure that I am comfortable with where I am headed personally and try not to just do the things that I think will make others happy.

So, yeah, Transition. It’s Mick’s topical word of the day 😛

    Transition. I hear ya, pal.

    It’s a shame work is taking so long to get going for you – there’s nothing worse than a sloooooooow beginning. Hopefully that won’t last too long; when do you think it’ll all start happening?

    And 3 places in the next 6 weeks? Why?

    Great post on transition. I have discussed this topic many a day with friends. I guess there is not one real tme we could say we do NOT transition..we always grow in different areas of our liv es. Perhaps growth is realisation, no so much transition? Who knows, t is what ever the person perceives it to be.

    On anoher topic. I have friends who have transitioned gender..male to female. Whenthey go out(if they are not passable), people call them Trannies..thing is, they aren;t Trannies in a sence, because, now that they HAVE transitioned, they are no longer transitioning, they are who they are now, they are female..can’t go back, LOL. But, they transition in other areas of their life, as everyone does. Work, homelife, school etc.

    Interesting post…
