work-life balance?

I am trying to find the right work-work balance at the moment... trying to balance between my job and my Masters' Thesis.

Although this sounds as if I would work all day, which is not true. I'm still enjoying life! Looking forward to see my MBA fellow students for a BBQ on Saturday... cross fingers that the weather will be ok!

...36km through the local forests. Unfortunately my bottom bracket is gone, so I need to replace that asap!

The iPhone is a good tool to keep track on where you're going when there are no signs around :)

Charlotte 2007 Revival

Peggy, Andi and I had the feeling that we need to organize a come together of the Charlotte 2007 Summer School folks.

First Idea is Amsterdam... created a Google Group to act as a mailing list to discuss this.
Unfortunately I am still waiting for the invitations to be reviewed by the Google staff and finally sent out :-s Hope that happens today...

Two month to go...

Today is July 1st - means I must not forget my mothers B-Day and that I have two month left before I start my new job in Zurich.

According to my project plan I am still doing ok with my thesis. I plan to bring it to a stage where I could hand it in until end of August. As I will anyway extend one semester (looks like everybody from my class will do that...) I have the chance to give it to some native English speaking ppl for proof reading and fine tune the layout until the handing in.

I am getting pretty excited about my new job in Zurich. SOA is a really interesting topic and the feedback from people I talk about the company I will join is really positive (which underlines my impression). Currently my wife applies for a pretty good job in Zurich which would be an excellent fit for her skillset. Let's hope she gets some positive feedback from them soon...
