[3rd January 2007]
Nothing much to report in the early days of this year.
Marta has left Florence yesterday, it was a strange feeling as the eight days that she spent here really felt rather quick, and I was sorry to see her off at the station.
The situation there is not easy, mostly because I still think that coming to Florence might mean 99% that she will have to arrive here unemployed.
Finding a job as she wants it's quite hard, it took two years for me to find.
And she is quite busy with the current job, so she doesn't have a lot of time to employ on the research.
Let's see where we are heading, I told her that I am not ready to wait much longer to be together if that is our destiny.
I know it's a very selfish thing to say, but on the other side time is ticking for her and I don't want a long distance relationship for much longer...
Workwise all the companies have been closed, so nothing much that I could do in these days. I still have to see a friend of mine to help me sort out the TV and Wireless LAN problems that I have.
I also want to buy a nice chair for my desk at home, but I really don't know where to start from to look for it... Hard stuff..
So in the end it looks like the new year is slowly blooming, a bit like when we wake up in the morning of a lazy Saturday, stretching and yawning slowly, but staying in bed just because we can (at least the people that can do that!).
Yes, that is the rouble with holidays - you feel helpless to progress because everyone else is taking it easy! :) Except, perhaps, the retail trade!
What's the problem with the wireless LAN?

Better find another job while you still have one. Being unemployed has a bad press, even if it's not your fault. It's paradoxical and yet understandable.
A friend of mine had troubles with his boss. He knew he would get fired sooner or later. So I told him to start looking for a new job while he was still working. But he didn't. And now, being unemployed, he can't find anything. Companies don't trust his skills.

Sheri: It's the same situation here in Italy too. I wouldn't recommend Marta to leave the job with nothing in her hands. But on the other side if she waits too much where is the relationship going to end? The fact is that it's her decision this time. I cannot push too much a way or another, and of course the prospect that I might have to support financially someone in a situation like mine (new job, 1 year contract) it's not my cup of tea.

Of course not. Only kidding!
