Whooooo! I finish my job on Friday, so in an unprofessional manner I'm actually spending time posting to this pointless journal while I work my notice.
For those who're interested (and too lazy to go on over to Club Foot and read my diary there), I'm quitting the IT industry to go back to university and learn how to be a high-school teacher. Physics, natch. I could've gone for teaching ICT (that C is for communications, and you should be able to figure the rest out yourself), but I figured there's probably a lot of people with some experience using Word and Excel who're also going for it, and I thought Physics would be more 1337 (seeing as it's the least popular subject to teach, I guess I must be right there).
OK, it would've been nice to get on board with a dot-com, but seeing as I only graduated a year ago I don't have any experience, and nowhere will hire me w/o experience. Yes, that old catch-22. So seeing as I couldn't get in there, I'm now going for somewhere where they are willing to take people on. I'll think of you all when I'm taking my many long holidays (about 12 weeks per year, all paid), and only working 6 hour days :)
Anyway, I finish working in my current job this Friday, so I'm just taking my time right now. Wrong? Yes. But frankly I think it's fair payback for all the extra hours I've put in that'll count for almost nothing in my future career. Yes, I am jaded.
