I've completed the training for my company, in how to use the features of our new intranet. It's been very exciting, not to mention very challenging.
I'm sitting here at home, listening to Enya on an online music station I use for relaxing music, relaxing after a hard day at work. Well, not exactly a 'hard day', but a day nevertheless.
The training material was completed on Wednesday night (after working from 9am – 10:30pm) and released to the company on Thursday. Small refinements were made that day and yesterday, and after various feedback from people last night over Friday afternoon beers, I came in today and made some more changes, to make it that much better.
At the same time as I've been creating the training material, I've also been made 'Site Administrator' for the Services department I've been part of. That's been pretty involving too, getting various people to provide information for their respective areas on the intranet, and trying to pull it all together.
Overall, everything has come together in such a way that I'm in a great position for moving forward, and definitely not moving back.
I had a good conversation with my manager last night. There's been a lot of positive feedback about my work, and how beneficial it's been to the company. The gist of the conversation was that good things are coming my way, including moving into a permanent role completely different to where I've been before, but more in line with what I want to do, and what I've been doing the past few months (on supporting the new intranet). Also included in that is a pay rise.
Over the past couple of months I've gotten a few new things in my life. A large-screen tv (33"), and a larger computer desk and a book case. As my cat starts calming down somewhat and stops with the couch-scratching, I'll get rid of the torn up couch and get a better one.
