So much has been lost, so much forgotten. So much pain, so much blood. And for what, I wonder. The past tempts us, the present confuses us, and the future frightens us. And our lives slip away, moment by moment, lost in that vast terrible inbetween. But there is still time to seize that one last fragile moment. To choose something better, to make a difference ... and I intend to do just that.
Yesterday was an anniversary of sorts, it marked the end of my first twelve months here at Talis. I was chatting to Ian on the train home last night and as always he asked me how I’m getting on, and I’m happy to say that im still loving everything im doing. I’ve learnt more this last twelve months than in the five years I spent at my previous job. It’s an fantastic environment and its been incredible working alongside a group of extremely talented geeks. I feel like I have grown a lot this past twelve months and not only learnt new things but learnt new ways of thinking about problems.
When I joined Talis I was looking for a new beginning, I guess there was a part of me that needed to start over and that needed more than anything else to forget the past. I certainly found that new beginning here and it’s helped me to find my direction again and a sense of purpose … it’s helped me make some wonderful new friends along the way … but most of all I finally feel like I’m actually making a difference.
