I have been off here for a while as I again postponed my studies due to my starting a new job in the Fintech industry. Not only was I finding studying a chore I was also finding doing two modules really hard work and I had no time to myself. So I decided to defer them and concentrate on my new job as I had a lot to learn. I have only chosen one module this year which should keep me from screaming! I am starting my new module in October, I was in two minds weather to go back to studying, I have decided to try again I’m in stage three and so its the last stage so I have think I owe it to my self to try and get back in to study mode and get my BSc.
I am loving my new job and I am doing well at it. My job title is Customer Support Executive but really I am a Software Support Analyst. The company writes software for financial type companies such as mortgage companies. I support the broker platform, I never thought that I would enjoy working in another job dealing with customers but our customers are really nice (most of the time) and I have a good repour with a lot of them. I feel good when I know I have helped them with their problem.
The people I work with are also really great, especially the small team I work with on the support desk. We all work well together and support eachother which is how a team should be in my opinion.
Anyway I thought I would just give a quick update and I’m looking forward to starting my module again. I have decided to just do one module a year as now that I’m in stage three 2 modules is to much for me. It will take me a few extra years to complete it but I think its better that then to give up completely which is what I was seriously thinking of doing. As I said earlier I am giving it another go and hopefully I am in the correct mind set. I just need to get my brain back into study mode.
