I always find it very hard to adapt to the hour change – forwards or backwards, it doesn’t matter – i always feel tired for about a week as i get used to it.
So this time i’m trying something different: just pretend it never happened! Whilst everyone else enjoyed an hour extra in bed, i just got up at my usual time (which is an hour earlier in New Time). So i now work 8-4 instead of 9-5. I took my lunch an hour earlier. I will go to bed an hour earlier. To my internal body clock it’s as if nothing changed! :)
We will see how this goes.
The weekend was a busy one. The server that hosts MyChores fell over and so i spent most of the weekend trying to contact the host company – and looking around for a new host! The weather was pretty miserable so i didn’t really want to go out anyway. It was a shame because i was going to go out to Southampton to meet a friend. I got as far as the steps outside our front door and just couldn’t face it – the rain was pouring down like crazy! I hope we’ll be able to meet up next week instead, because i felt bad about cancelling.
I took a test at work today; it’s the test that they give people who apply to work with us as developers, at the same time as the interview. It was mostly .NET and C# oriented, so i didn’t have a clue about much of it, but it doesn’t matter. It just tells me i have a lot to learn! I’m going to start 50/50 development and testing early next year, and see how it goes for three months. If i like it, and if i’m good at it, i can become a full-time developer. I should be able to go on a C# course between now and Christmas, to learn all the things that i didn’t know in the test today!
