Idle Speculations

Regrets, I've had a few... but then again...

There has never before been a moment where I have regretted some of the decisions I have made over the last few years. Never before. Today I regretted something that had never occurred to me I may one day regret.

This afternoon I bought a new magazine, NetMedia, which is a mag directed toward Marketing Professionals regarding the Internet as a commercial/advertising medium. When I started reading it I saw an ad for Euro RSCG Partnership. It was a big ad explaining why they are a good choice, blah blah blah. But in particular it focussed on their Interactive Department, which has been named "Interactive Agency of the Year" for 2 years running. Hey! Great for them!

My problem is that I worked there... I did freelance coding for them for a few weeks on their APAC Intel site. At the end of that time, they were looking to offer me permanent work there. But I was going overseas for the summer. So that fell through. We agreed to hook up when I got back. And here is where it goes wrong for me. I never chased that up. When I worked there it was a department of about a dozen? I tried to count the Interactive team photo in this ad and lost count around 40.

My regret is not coming back into my degree. My regret is not following up with them for work while I have been studying. My work at the moment is valuable in certain ways. Seeing that made me realise that working there would have been much more valuable.

It is the first time I have started to feel like I've got a lot of catching up to do. That I have left myself far behind where I could be right now.

At least in some ways I feel somewhat spurred on by this. That I must now really take control of my short term future as a big part of the long term movement. I think I might even call Euro soon...

In other stuff... "American Psycho" is a very crazy book. Well worth a read, but be prepared for some insanely evil stuff. Looking forward to the movie tomorrow night; tomorrow our second phone line is installed (after a false alarm on Monday). woohoo!; in just over 3 weeks I start my Olympic work. Getting nervous and excited; my room is becoming a mess again... but my problem is I really need more shelf space. I must get a new bookcase!
