I’ve been slacking, I know that.
There’s been a marked lack of posting on this blog as of late, and frankly I can put all that down to the job hunt.
After having completed my internship at the end of December it was time I re-reentered the workforce in a full-time, in-office capacity.
Luckily, the search didn’t last long because about a month into my search I had received my first offer – one I happily accepted. I’m now gainfully employed as a medical writer for a downtown Toronto healthcare communications firm in a beautifully old, exposed brick, top floor office with unlimited coffee and tea in the lunch room and an amazingly fun (and funny) collection of co-workers.
In short: it’s kind of like a Margaret Utopia.
So the whole hunt/settling in aspect has really limited the time I’ve had to continue writing for my personal blog – that and my daily 3 hour commute…
But I’m going to try to get better! My movie reviews will continue, I’ll attempt to get back into the swing of things in regards to political and news based posts and I promise I’ll get back on the sports train too.
But first, now that I’m just settling in at work, it’s time for a vacation.
In fact, in 1.5 weeks I’ll be hopping on a plane headed for Australia!
On a scale of 1-to-10 in terms of ‘How lucky is Marg?’ I’m coming in around a 13 these days!
During my first big trip way back in 2006 – a visit to France, Austria and Germany while the Germans were hosting the World Cup – I kept a pretty good blog of my adventures. But since then I haven’t been so thorough, and that’s something I’d like to change. So I’ll be making a concerted effort during my three week Australia-New Zealand sojourn to post updates on this blog, not just to keep everyone updated, but to rub in the weather!
Well, probably not to rub in the weather since I’ll likely be sweating through 30+ degree weather in Melbourne during the wedding, and as we all know I’m not a fan of hot weather…. Though the expected 22-degrees in New Zealand is right up my alley.
If you’ve been to any of the following cities I’d love to get some suggestions on what to see/do:
- Mt. Cook Village
- Auckland (and YES, I’m going to Hobbiton whilst in Auckland )
