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 😛
