I got a Job


I’ve finally got a job.  I’m a graduate trainee at Doosan Power Systems, well I will be on the 30th of August.

I get to spend 2 years sampling different bits of the business before deciding where I want to end up.  After 2 more years doing that I will be a, something, “real” employee, not sure, lol.

Other than getting a job, I’m working on my summer placement in the uni.  I’m testing the strength of climbing ropes under different belay conditions.  Just trying to get time in the lab at the moment as someone else has decided to use the same machine and timings are difficult.  It’s interesting stuff though 😛

Hmm, social life? Been ok, pub trips as usual, night out where I realised I definitely made the right decision about something I was second guessing myself over.  Maybe a couple of things I’m not happy with but they’ll be sorted out.

Not been reading much but did go and see MIB3, its really good, just don’t over complicate it by thinking about the time travel to much like I did.

Maltese Falcon


After reading The Good Thief’s Guides in which The Maltese Falcon is the main characters favourite book I went out an bought  it myself .  It is fantastic!!

It has everything I look for in a book, crime, suspense and someone out to prove everyone else wrong.  It is easy to see where Chris Ewan gets his writing style from and that is no bad thing.

It follows Sam Spade as he searches to find the missing Maltese Falcon while being bombarded from every direction by people wanting to pay him to find it and hand if over to them all while he is playing his own game against them and the local police.  It’s not easy to keep up with all the comings and goings in this book but it is well worth the read.
