Morningstar is one of those words that has different meanings. It is a weapon from the middle ages, it's a famous mutual fund rating company and it can be related to Venus when it's visible in the morning.

Today there was no Venus for me to be seen, mostly because the weather decided to become shite again, bringing us back of at least a month and half, it's cold and gray, promising rain.

Moreover it was my comeback at work after almost 2 weeks, between holidays and Istanbul I didn't set foot in the office for quite some time.
Not that I mind being back, it gives me time to do other things (among which update the blog), after all I have few days till my next business trip to Asia, so I have things to prepare and sort out before leaving.
This week is Golden Week in Japan (and I expect Koreans to have a similar holiday), so there will not be a huge amount of work to be done in the next days.

Yesterday it marked my fifth year since I left Florence and I have realized that I have been neglecting the general unsatisfaction that comes from this job.
It's a bit like the tax return forms. You leave them there on the desk, you know perfectly well that you will have to dedicate some time to them, but you leave them there as if they didn't exists, hoping that they will fill up by themselves.
The fact is that when I am travelling I don't feel quite as bad, and this both a good and bad thing.
Good because I don't feel unhappy (I am travelling after all), bad because I don't get interviews or attempt to send more CVs randomly around the country.

I did get an offer recently but it's so crap that it's not worth writing anything about it, while on the other side Marta might get a good offer from another company here up north, to sell final products in a textile company who started a new housewares line (table cloths, napkins, tents etc etc).
She says that it's really good stuff and that these people are doing a very good job and the company is doing real good, it might be a good chance to get out of textile and to go in a fast paced company.

Though I am happy for her I cannot hide the feeling of jealousy that lurks at the back of my mind, but in any case I should force myself to think that it could happen to me too in the future... It has to happen to me too, else I'll die of boredom and stress!!!!
