Well here is something else that I can successfully say is nothing to do with my dissertation. I have not long left until I have to submit my final report and at the moment I am really not feeling motivated enough to get on with it and complete it. Who would have thought that a small java application for a pda would be soo boring.
It has however made me realise that under no circumstances do i *EVER* want to become a software developer – hats off to those guys who enjoy it but it really isnt what I am looking for. I have decided that I would much rather work in IT support to begin with, get my MCSE and other qualifications and go from there to become a Network Admin or something similar.
I am still contemplating however the option of trying to get into theatre and doing something there. However going to my local theatre to see a comedy night made me realise just how little was going on there and that it really didnt seem a challenge to work in a nasty concrete building with lanterns and equipment that has been there since the building was constructed. We’ll see what happens – whether or not I decide to do that as a career is still under consideration. I will definately be doing some form of am-dram as that is brilliant fun and having done all the different shows in Durham I wouldnt want to stop. If anyone from Durham wants to see the shows I have been in then look here (you must be a DST member thought) http://www.dur.ac.uk/DST/document.php?DocumentID=271&id=926 At the time of writing I appear 21 times which isnt bad over 3 years!
Anyways.. I should probably be geting back to work as I have lots of writing to do and this has served as a welcome distraction from all my dissertation madness!
