end of holidays, now for something new

Just got back from a pretty amazing two week holiday visiting my best friend Steph in Beijing (read about it here).

Tomorrow I start my new job as a Senior IT Officer at the Bureau of Meteorology. I will be working on a foreign aid project to produce climate forecasting software for pacific nations. This should be exciting work with lots of Linux and open source.

I’m a little bit nervous, I haven’t worked in an office for almost four years. Spent some time this weekend shopping for new work clothes and appropriate shoes. Apparently civil servants don’t wear jeans and kicks to work.
