calypte ready for something new :)
(Is that the phrase I want?)
So, pushing forward with some vague ideas:
I’m almost-there in signing up for a short training course that builds on part what I’ve been doing, and seems like a very useful skill/certificate to have!
I also got a recommendation! Someone asked had I thought about training (as in, being the one that delivers it) and when I approached a former trainer of mine for advice he suggested that sounded like a good fit for me. Huh! It’s not a totally new idea for me, but perhaps a bit wary/unsure how I might look at this more.
And with that in mind, have ordered a few books: Building a Portfolio Career (this sounds unbelievably appealing, in a broad strokes kind of a way!), You Can Have What You Want (a walloping £1.79 for the kindle right now!), Find Your Dream Job, and Finding Square Holes. Surely between those I might figure something out?!
The main thing, though, is that I’m feeling a bit more positive right now: this is an opportunity – it’s actually kind of fab that I have so many possible options!!
PS still worth thinking about database programmer and/or data warehousing; data management.
