I’m bored, I’m bored, I’m boredom boredom boredom

November 10, 2015 // 1 Comment

You know you’re bored at work when you spend an afternoon rejigging your To Do List and then write down “rejig to do list” on your To Do List and immediately cross it out to give you some sense of having achieved something. [as an aside, I’ve now managed to confuse myself as to whether I double space after a sentence ends or do I usually [...]

Office politics…the players and the pawns

September 22, 2015 // 0 Comments

Over the last three years, Australia has managed to have 4 different Prime Ministers. This is not going to be a rant about how we seem to have an addiction to #spills [seriously though why are they called spills? Every time it happens I keep thinking of a large mug full of politicians spilling out and all these men in blue suits and light blue [...]

  Have you ever just wished for once, just once, you could know how loud you are when you blow your nose? Seriously, it’s like one of life’s little mysteries.

It all started when I was five and whilst on the phone to my dad, my sister punched me in the arm whilst I was on the phone [for no reason at all…well no reason apart from the fact that I had made a hole in the wall which I promptly blamed on her] – ever since then, I’ve [...]

Where are all the mediocre women?

April 23, 2015 // 6 Comments

I feel like I’m lucky enough to be living in a renaissance for women in the workplace. Now there are millions of books, forums, active networking opportunities, dedicated to progressing women in various workplaces [notably some workplaces being more progressed than others….*erghm* every closed shop medical profession]. It’s awesome and I do [...]

The score is 3 for 2…that’s 3 jobs in 2 years

December 12, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’m officially 3 for 2 – no that’s not the English Cricket Team’s average score over the last 6 months –I’m officially at my 3rd full-time job in 2 years. Yep, you know how at most workplaces, they give you a pen or cufflinks for being there for 5 years, to mark one’s loyalty to the business and commitment to [...]
