jobless

@work

After five months, my unemployment days are finally over!

Last Friday – on my birthday! – I signed my new contract, and starting tomorrow, February 1st, I will be working as a software engineer on database (web-)applications, using MS SQL Server, ASP.Net and so on.

Part of the technologies used will be new to me, as well as the database applications that have already been developped and sold. So, it will be quite a challenge, but I’m very much looking forward to it!

WW-uitkering

The past two weeks I have taken a “vacation” to do the unpacking here in my new home. This week we finally got our new bookcases for the study. Up till then, all my books were just piled up on the floor. Now I can finally find most of my stuff back again…

Today I visited the CWI (centre for work and income) to request a “WW-uitkering” (unemployment benefit). Starting today, I will be looking for a job and I will have to apply for a job at least once a week. (Apparently, I should have started with that weeks ago already, so I will probably be cut down on my payments. But hey, I didn’t know that! Nobody told me anything!)

Unemployed

As of today, I am jobless…

Well, I’ll be busy packing at home, because I am planning to move sometime next week. I am moving to Zeeland, in the southwest of the Netherlands. My wife already lives there, so, since I am now no longer bound to Delft, because of my job, I can finally move in with her…
