  • ifob81 year ago#75017527Wow! Lots of changes! Hem, can you remind me of your job, and your husband's ?

    We both work(ed) in the games industry, he is a programmer and I am a manager. When I wrote this blog I was working an inbetween finance job after leaving a very stressfull project manager job. Now I am finding a manager-related job again after moving to Finland, because the work-life balance is a lot better here, so the chance of me working myself to death is a lot smaller. :P My husband is also very content with his new work here. :)

    Hi Bearcat!! Thank you so much for the kind comment! Just sometimes hearing people say they still enjoy/appreciate my blog is nice, don't feel forced to leave comments on them or anything. :) I'll return again!

    Rajke1 year ago#65185013Congrats on yours and your husbands new job. I agree with you on the work/prive balance (Working to live instead of living to work). It is easily forgotten. Especially if you do work that you care about. :D Good luck on your new job.
    It was a fun read and i love reading your blogs.
    Greetz,

    Thank you for the very nice comment as well! :) And yeah, to be honest, I would actually prefer to work even less hours than I do now, but where I live jobs are either a lot of hours or very little, there isn't much work to do with for example ~75% hours. But it's a huge improvement in work-life balance compared to my previous job and I'm enjoying it so far, so I'm happy. :) And also for you: my blogs will return and I hope you'll keep on looking forward to them! :)

    ZoidsFanatic21 year ago#65081740Grats on your new job! I... know every well the feeling of job hunting. Not a great feeling. Wish I could offer some secret advice about everything else but I sadly can’t. Instead I hope for the best for you two. Sounds tiresome but also in a positive way.

    With jobhunting, there isn't much advice except for: Spend a lot of time on finding that new job (work at least fulltime hours at home towards this goal) and try your best with your network (LinkedIn is your friend). With my current job, I was incredibly lucky that a friend pointed out the job opening to me as I personally had missed it because of the weird job title it was uploaded with! But I think that also helped me with there being less competition on the application. ^^''

    victorviper1 year ago#65108259It sounds like a stressful yet potentially exciting time!
    You make good points about work-life balance. I've seen a lot of friends fall into this trap of overworking themselves to chase a little bit of extra money. People end up on call 24/7 or traveling perpetually and living out of a suitcase; several people in my circle of friends took jobs like that for a while and made good money but burned themselves out and eventually took lower-paying jobs where they actually had some free time to themselves.


    What you describe was exactly my situation. I was also traveling a lot. At home I would almost always have my work-laptop and work-phone switched on. When I visited friends/family I tried to keep work-related items bagged as much as possible, but yes, I still had them with me and would sometimes turn them on...the motivation for bonuses and the pressure with deadlines was so high. I didn't crash and burn, but I probably would have if I had done that job for a longer time. Which really scares me when I look back on it, but I think I've learned of it as well. My current job is quite a lot of hours as well, but they don't expect me to do anything from home and overtime is almost non-existent. Probably when I get my evenings free again I'll be confused of the free time suddenly opening up, haha!

    Redliger1 year ago#65128753Don't worry, it will all work out. I know you two can handle this. :)
    Maybe once the dust settles you'll have some time to work on your kit projects. ;)


    I actually already did manage to work some more on kits recently! As earlier this year I had a bunch more free time. Except for Prom BLOG #43149 , nothing of it is finished though, haha! But I maybe can get to finishing some and blogging about them later this year. Your reply made me update this list so you can see: LIST #55583 . :)
