    Guyz It's me again w/ my usual career sorrow Have hit a wall in current company so in process of finding another job. Had an interview today at a startup and I flaked on areas I shouldn't have flaked. It's all good learning though. I want to get out of financial services - but where?! Have no idea what exists outside. I want to do product management but 70-80% of roles require tech background and with summer hols on now that 20% is hard to find. Spinning up motivation in these times is difficult for everyone, right? So want to move out of UK again but is the most suitable approach to apply before going, or can I just ditch and spend a month somewhere and scout something? What can I offer to the Europeans that their own citizens can't fulfil? Feel like my mates in the creative world have it easy (they don't - but man I want that passion for work to come back again). Advice / guidance in what will be an emotional ride for the next several months, welcome
  2. Caught up with Season 2 and still stand by this

    Yeah - new role, the team just spun up. Fully aware I need to focus on myself and really can't quite believe how burnt I feel by it! She'd kill it from the skills she'd bring but I know I'd have tackled it from a different angle (she's gov/public policy and I'm business/tech), and that was the beauty of that role - it could've been self-defined. I look at across all my interests and all I've been working towards/advocating for and that role could've have brought it all together. The team is looking to expand but in the past she's tried to discourage me from moving into areas she's in (no joke and that's why this sourness is sticking as she really is sly), so not even keen to join alongside her. I could go on, but it's not the right thing to do! Agree though - all about driving success where I am now. I'm really sad but I am in a good place where I can do well. Must must must focus as it's becoming distracting.

    Someone got the EXACT role I wanted before I had even got a chance to speak to the person heading up the team. I say someone, it's someone who started out same time in the company is me, same level and we caught up every so often at work. And it pains me she's got this role. She's sly which makes it more painful. The jealously is so REAL. Never felt so sour, for so long. The exact type of scenario to not focus on others, do you, support their grind etc etc etc. But fuck. Not taking it very well, particularly as I know she will kill it.
  6. Ah yeh, spotted that. Apparently there's loads of references - I noticed only that and the bathtub.
  7. Yeah train to busan was good ^ Binged on 'Dark' this week - decent sci-fi. It's conceptually a mash of several films but don't want to give anything away by mentioning. Last few eps required a lot of concentration although left with too many questions at the final ep.
  8. About 23 euros towards end of 2013 It's got lost amongst redecoration - my parents messed with notes/paper stacks and haven't been able to find it since. v. painful... ffs
  9. just over 20 enough to be pissed but not enough to get hung up over... yet anyway.
  10. Lost my offline litecoin wallet passphrase
  11. Ep 7 had me questioning whether I enjoyed the whole season. Ultimately, I did, but yeah it was terrible, misplaced and irrelevant.
  12. Enjoyed Mindhunter. Really feeling shows that avoid the conventional/predictable nuances in plots and dialogue (i.e. it's nicely original).
  13. Thanks for resources, will dig in this eve. In the context of banking - so yeah exposure of data and also read/write APIs like payment initiation. If I read through basic specifications of those that expose data, I broadly get it but am tasked with how to improve them, for example by building in filtering/search functionality to avoid speed issues in returning bulk data, or say adding nearby search requests for locator APIs. I'm having to read existing proved APIs like Mastercard to pull out what they've got but not quite fully understanding it. I'll check out Stripe though and compare across providers as think that's the faster route then attending courses/starting from scratch in learning languages, at least for time being. Might watch some tutorials.
  14. Sorry I've not read this thread but anyone know what are the stepping stones to working with APIs? Currently assigned to API work from business side and feeling to do some side courses to support ongoing technical grasp, but no idea where to begin.
  15. Big little lies is a decent tv drama Can't stand Shailene Woodley. Overused and same broken character in every movie.
