    Got told 2 weeks ago that my position will be made redundant at the end of this year. Been to a couple of job interviews and got my first job offer already!

    Will be one way or another walking out of my job here, getting a hefty chunk of tax-free pay, and walking into a new job.

    Woot! May even be able to go on 70k!!

    I know everyone thinks "statsman was always coming back", but seriously I was not intending to (or for that matter, couldn't even afford!) to do 70K next year.

    But once again, the stars have just aligned for me. Had I not been offered a redundancy by my current employer, and got offered a subsequent new job on significantly more salary than I'm on now, there is no way I could go.

    I'm not there yet of course! I still need to formally accept the offer for the new job, make sure I get my redundancy payout, AND then find a cabin!

    But regardless, I'm rejoicing :)

    Leaving Taiwan for Hong Kong, tomorrow heading back home.

    Will see my wife soon!


    Only a week until the next job trip, but at least that is only to the UK and also plenty shorter duration.

    I'm booking my flights for 70k tomorrow. They're a little more expensive, cause I'm not flying into Miami... I'm flying into Tampa a little early to (FINALLY OMG) visit one of my festival friends from Terminus :D :D. We've been basically trying to plan this visit since August, so I'm stoked it's finally happening.

    And I might even get to drag him down to Miami for some of the preparties.

    I remember talking to a German guy on the cruise a few years ago, he said it was illegal to work 60+ plus hours a week. I told him, it's the norm where I live... and no I don't work in the patch!

    I go to a kickboxing class during my lunch break. Today I was the only person to show up. I asked my instructor to play some metal rather the regular Bruno Mars and LMFAO he usually plays since it was just me (not gonna lie I do enjoy Bruno Mars a little bit). He started playing Disturbed and System of Down. I appreciated and thanked him for his effort but kindly requested he play something a little bit more my taste. He preceded to play a mix of Immolation, Krisiun and Morbid Angel. Definitely kicked and punched harder then usual today!

    Selling my current house and moving to somewhere a bit smaller, a bit less expensive.

    Accepted an offer yesterday for a price which will mean I can pay off what is owing on my current home, pay for my 'new home', and even after all the related expenses I will have a little bit of money left over!!

    Livin' the dream!!

    Everything is going to finalise with the buying of one house and selling of the other on the 1st of February :O

    Gonna make it challenging being out of the country when it happens!!!

    But one small brightside is that due to the time difference between Australia and the USA, all the key stuff will actually occur here in Australia the day before 70k sails out. So I'll just have to be doing a lot of checking of emails etc!

    Will fly home from Taiwan later today, back to my wife :headbanger:

    Will only need 25h of travel and will only have been awake for 33h when I get home, so I am sure I will be in awesome shape for cuddling with my wife and then heading to a mate's dinner party some 8h later.

    After almost a year and a half working as a contractor, I'm going to officially become a direct employee next month. That means a pay bump plus benefits. This of course helps towards getting on the boat next year

    Mixed feelings about yesterday. First I got accepted to a university of applied sciences to get an engineering degree in HVAC (and being able to do that while working full time), and an hour later I learned that one of my best friends has leukemia (the same aggressive sort my sister had).

    Not sure I fully understand it because it was all "bonus this" and "performance based" that.... but I think I just got about a 15% pay increase :?

    Following on from the previous post, found out yesterday that:

    - I will get an 11% increase in my next pay
    - I will get a bonus in my next pay
    - I will get another (smaller, maybe a couple of percent) increase in the pay after that

    :D

    Plus, got my tax refund today as well!
