Maths is fun.
I saw A Beautiful Mind
. Maths is fun; mental illness is not. Learning to play Go has moved a dozen places up my list of things to do. However it is still below the not-until-you-move barrier and my Go set is sitting in a shed on the other side of town. So instead I will refocus that motivation into applying for jobs. One month into the period of applying for really neat jobs I have decided to accelerate my schedule and commence the period of applying for any job. This decision was taken firstly because of the scarcity of really neat jobs; and secondly because of my inability to meet the selection criteria of those few really neat jobs that are going. (I do not have a four year tertiary qualification. I do not have demonstrated team leadership success.) Thirdly it may get me out of here sooner, and really neat jobs are included in the any job category anyway.
