Last day

Story of my life, really :)

On a slightly more sombre note, this is my last day at Citrix, where I have spent my summer. It’s been a fantastic three months, working on a really interesting project. I’ve met some great people, and found a company I would really like to work for post-University. In many respects, I don’t want to leave (typically, the work is just getting to be really interesting), but equally I can’t wait to get back to Leamington, to see my friends and my lovely girlfriend regularly again, and to throw myself into next year.

The whole experience has raised some questions with uncomfortable and unsatisfactory answers with regards to next year, but I’m only too aware that I can’t stick my head in the sand and hope it all goes away. I’ve got a fantastic opportunity here that I need to grab by the balls and make work for me, but being so far away from everyone this summer has been hard enough; I can’t imagine how hard a year or more may be.

Anyways, the regular Friday morning cakes have arrived, so I must be off to collect my sticky bun :)

  1. Consort of an Armonical nature

    I assume your dilemma is that you’ve found a fulfilling and enjoyable job, but that doing that job will mean that you have to live far away from most of your friends. Same here, and it gets me down sometimes, but I suppose that’s what weekends are for :-)

    Hint: Join a first-rate ensemble in the Midlands which gives you a great excuse to come up and see them all the time. And just ensure the tenors nail that first note in the a-tempo and make it sound a bit less toilety…
