Plus side I have a new car. A Mitsubishi Pejaro io. You know the smaller version of the Pejaro. Its a good car even if it have 165k km on it. But its also fun to drive. Mind you I wanted to get hold of a Jeep Wrangler (your fault Drew!!) but this is almost as good.
Another thing that's caught my eye is some of the certification programs I've seen. Like those by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA), and the Royal Institute of Charted Surveyors. If I can get some of these qualifications then I can start doing some Assessment studies myself. Its a major boost to my career, now and in the future and I think I'll have a better chance at job applications. I just need to see what courses I can take and if those are offered by correspondence. I can't wait.
