  • Smarty and her Dad are enjoying their first week in Germany. The weather is cooperating so far, and they are currently visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Cologne.
  • Smarty had a blast seeing her German friends, three sisters who are now 13, 11, and 9. They all speak fluent English since their Mom is an English teacher. 
  • In the meantime, I had an interview with a famous company which I will not name :) I don't really want to switch jobs at the moment, but the area they are hiring for is very interesting (AI and big data), so we will see what happens next.
  • I enjoyed my job this week - we have a couple of new Senior Directors, and I had spent some time with both of them this week. It's good to have fresh ideas in the areas where we are stuck. I am also busy preparing an offsite for one of my programs.
  • Smarty informed me on the phone that she is really enjoying Magisterium series by Holly Black. I have finished the second book in Magemother series by Austin J. Bailey, because I promised Smarty that I will finish all three books before she comes back. Just like Empire Strikes Back, the second book ended on the cliffhanger, so I just have to read the third book now, even though I have a pretty good idea of how it will end.
  • I am looking forward to the weekend on my own - I hope to have both business and pleasure by catching up with work, hauling some bags to Goodwill, reading, and going to the pool.

Your Turn

How was your week?

I'm on a road trip with my kids for the next 23 days! Mike will meet up with us in the middle.

I'm very curious about this interview of yours...

It's kind of funny accidentally reading these in reverse chronological order, and knowing how the first interview went.

It's been a busy summer. I always think I can slow things down, but it never quite seems to happen. I don't know why I'm so delusional about this.
