General Catchup

Again it’s been a while since I wrote anything for this journal/blog or whatever the hell it actually is turning out to be. What’s been going on in my life?

I’m older

Officially that is. Naturally I’m constantly ageing, but this past Thursday was my birthday. I’m now 32 years old, and still have no real idea in what direction I ultimately want my life to lead. Not that that really bothers me. As long as I can keep myself reasonably comfortable and off the streets, I’m not too worried about not inventing a cure for cancer or anything like that.

Upcoming Annual Review

Speaking of not having any plans for myself, my annual work review is on Wednesday. That should be interesting. I don’t think I’ve sucked too badly at much, but I guess we’ll see. As part of this years review we’ve been asked to provide an indication of goals and plans we might like to work on. Since I didn’t have anything big or specific in mind, I put down my interest in trying to write more and possibly doing some web or iOS related development. Who knows, maybe something will come of it. I’ve had the desire to try and write more for a while now (and this ‘blog’ is part of trying to make good on that), so having the opportunity to do so at work would make it a lot more likely that I’ll be able to get a feel for whether it’s something I really would like to do more of, and also whether or not it’s something I have much talent for. If the chance does come up I’m sure I’ll need to work on what skills I do have, but I think I can turn out a fairly readable bit of non-formal text when I want to. Whether or not I can do so on particular topics, which I may have little actual interest in may be a different matter though.

Anything Else?

Umm…no, not really. Not that I can think of anyway. It looks like I’m getting towards the end of my tasks for the CIG project at work, which will be good as the DICOM related task I’ve had hasn’t been something I’d describe at fun. Something of a learning experience for sure, but I’ll be happy to see the back of it.
