How It All Ends - A video on global climate change

I found this video on YouTube and thought it was quite good. Rather than debating if global climate change is real or not, a better question might be "Which risk should we take?" Should we risk doing nothing or should we risk doing something we didn't need to? Watch the video - he puts it a lot better than me.

Longboard + Bike = Fun

On Sunday I went to the shops with my friend Stephen. It wouldn't have been too unusual, but he happened to have his bike and a tow-rope. I had my longboard. What happened next? Take a look and see...

My photo is in the Schmap of Glasgow!

This is completely random. I got an e-mail recently from someone telling me they were constructing a "schmap" of Glasgow. They had seen one of my photos of Queens Park on Flickr and asked for my permission to include it in their guide to Glasgow. Sweet.

So, now if you go to the Schmap page for Queens Park, you'll see the photo I took of the park. How nice.

New job - new future

Well, today has been a very interesting day indeed. I had an interview with ACS Clothing, who desperately need some help in their IT department to upgrade existing software to use web applications and fun stuff like that. After a 3.5 hour interview they sent me on my way with the assurance they would be in touch very soon. (The fact that I had mentioned interviews scheduled for Thursday and Friday might have something to do with it!)

When I got home, I got a phone call from the agency who had arranged the interview to tell me that I had been offered the job! I was so pleased to hear it. She said it was amazing because they offered me the top of the range they had quoted to her which she said was unheard of. In fact, she said she's never seen that happen at all. So thanks to God for that. I'm truly blessed and highly favoured.

It's a strange feeling to be about to start another job. I think I'll actually enjoy being around people again. It's like coming out of hibernation or something like that.

I'm now finding myself wondering what to buy now that I actually have an income. I think a car might be a worthwhile investment. Stay tuned for more details to follow!
