Moving on from my current job

I am leaving my current job and going back to full time study next year.
You may ask what is my current job.  I can’t tell you because I am still working there and until I leave I can not say on social media (on a post) where I work.
I can tell you in person just not on social media.
Current job
Logistics working night shift.  My body is confused about night and day.
Money is OK but my health is way more important than money.
No the government is not paying for my study (if you are asking) due to the fact I have studied before.
I AM REALLY looking forward to leaving!!! There’s a lot I’d really like to say about the company I work for but that will be in a blog for another day in about a years time (If I still want to vent by then).
During my time there
  • I had to go on high blood pressure pills,
  • My sleep patterns are all over the place,
  • I have requested 2 to 3 times to go onto day shift.  No reply!
 I have two options to try, will keep you posted later on what I will do.
As of right now I have 54 calendar days to go and 28 working days to go.
My course starts 12 February.  I finish up on Sunday 4th February at 6am (or there about)
Currently on one more day shift then the rest of my time is nights 😣😥😢😠

3rd South South Institute Conference

Last week (5th Nov to 10th Nov) I helped out at the South South Institute Conference on sexual violence perpetrated against men and boys.
There were a lot of key talks at the conference. I helped by providing audio and visual support.

The Sunday before the conference was a guys only workshop, then afterwards, those of us who were a part of the Bristlecone Project went to the Canterbury Museum to preview the exhibition.

My picture was giant!





On the second day I met former FBI agent and writer/producer of Criminals minds, Jim Clemente. I got his autograph and a souvenir FBI badge. A very nice guy, I hope to see him in LA one day.

Selfie with Jim Clemente

The 5 days went really fast.

“I am writing to say how impressed I was with the service and quality of the work from Sword Productions. Raymond was commissioned to video my wife’s 40th birthday party and produce a short video. The video was edited very well and captured all the key moments and people. I would recommend using him for any video requirements.”

Waitaki Candidacy for General Election

I ran as a candidate for Waitaki In the 2017 General election. The position is currently held by Jacqui Dean.

I came second to last with 157 votes, click here for my results.

I entered into this as a learning experience, it was fun and interesting. During my campaign I attended one public meeting, in Waimate.

I want to do Toast Masters next year to improve on my public speaking.

“On a recent project, Raymond was extremely organised and prepared, using high quality technology with skill and expertise. He was always approachable when directing cast and crew members, and was able to work flexibly within a tight time constraint and budget. Can’t wait to work again with him!”
