Reboot

Sunday May 24, 2015

It appears I’m going to have a career sea change.

A few weeks ago, while talking to my father, I realised that for someone who dislikes change working in IT is a really bad idea. Every time I master a product or skill there’s a new release or update or patch. Especially with mobility, that shit changes literally day to day. I’m not a fan of working nights or weekends yet have to do that pretty regularly. I have to constantly do reading and training to keep my skills up to date.

I know, I sound like a whiny lady.

I just…….the idea of doing this for another 15 years actively depresses me. I will be Jewish mother level disappointed in me if I’m still here in 5 years time.

So I enrolled in a legal services course and imma become a paralegal or legal secretary. I started a couple of weeks ago and so far it’s going really well. I originally went to uni to study law so a lot of it’s really familiar and it pleases my little heart to be studying it again.

I’m going to have to take a pay cut, a pretty big hurty pay cut. I’m hoping it’s worth it. God, I hope it’s worth it.

I agree, while I am a “tech head”, I intensely dislike it as well, it’s like a takeoff on Don Corleone in Godfather 3 “You think you know it and they drag you back in with an ‘Update’;) Glad you guys are safe, At least if you’re a Para-legal you cab draw up the charges on the Thief yourself.
Be safe! Are there gun laws in Australia?

Hi Alec!

It is totally the godfather, you think you’re out….

Gun laws are pretty tight in Australia, we had a couple of mass shootings in the 90’s and a most automatic and semi-automatic guns were banned. No stand your grand laws here.

Plus, I slept through the first burglary so not sure it would’ve made much difference :/

I think it’s rad! They reckon people have two careers in their lifetime, so you’re just right on track for number two. Hope it continues to be super interesting and fun!
