SkyFall

This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again

For this is the end
I’ve drowned and dreamt this moment
So overdue I owe them
Swept away, I’m stolen

IMG-20150918-WA0009

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall
That skyfall

Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
Where worlds collide and days are dark
You may have my number, you can take my name
But you’ll never have my heart

Let the sky fall (let the sky fall)
When it crumbles (when it crumbles)
We will stand tall (we will stand tall)
Face it all together

IMG-20150918-WA0011

Let the sky fall (let the sky fall)
When it crumbles (when it crumbles)
We will stand tall (we will stand tall)
Face it all together
At skyfall

This is the end…

Or…is it not?

A story ends…a new stage begins…

I will soon be moved off from production to become a SMD machinist. I’ll be heading towards controlling not one but three SMT assembly lines. I have no fear in me from long workdays and odd hours, but I keep wondering what will happen to me. Will anything from the old me remain when the training is over and I’m on my own?

As said, I have no fear, but I do contemplate the fact that I might burn up quickly. I’m not sure my bosses take that into account.

I haven’t chosen the song lightly either. When it says we will “face it all together”, it’s because as long as I’m able, I am going to keep a journal, both in video and text, of what it is to become a machinist, what do you do, what do you learn, and if I burn up, you’ll see my fall.

On the other hand, I wonder if my new boss fully understands what he’s got with me. He hasn’t done any interviews, as I have been just hand picked. He barely knows me, just that I like machines, machining, electronics and stuff…but that I also don’t see my bosses as superiors but as equals.

If I see something wrong, I say so. I will always spoke my mind. I will also work more like a robot than a human (I don’t drink coffee, I don’t smoke, so I don’t loose time in nonsense. I like efficiency above everything else, and I don’t waste my time at work, or if I do it, it is in a fully approved way by the A.S. Enrichment Center).

It is interesting because I am going to apropriately meet him in a road trip across the country to get the machines. I don’t know if sitting in a car for 10 hours with your future boss is the best way of being introduced to someone.

Also, he doesn’t know that this is a reverse job interview. He doesn’t have to like me as a worker, I have to like him as a boss, otherwise I’ll pass the offer along to the next coworker who is adequate for the job. I’m not sure either where this self assurance comes. I know the job must meet some basics like let me play around, document things, carry my bag-o-tools, mount my own boards, use the tools for my personal projects, etc…plus some extras I plan to add to better fit the job timetable to my needs. Basically I don’t especially need more money (altough I could use it for something, sure.) and I don’t need being stressed, yelled, forced to overtime and work outside a normal job envelope. And since I don’t need that, I feel free to say no if all that doesn’t come with a set of bonuses and benefits as big as a mountain, apart from the money, I mean.

Of course there are still posts to be written (and some drafts to be published too) about the laser, the CNC router and if I ever finish the 3D printer, that too.

Because of too much KSP, I just feel like going too fast in a reentry…

  1. Usually I just follow your work on facebook because it’s convenient.. But then I chekc you your blog and keep getting fascinated by your work.
    I really do hope you like your new job and don’t get burned out or in any other way limited. On the other hand you could always make a living machining stuff ;)

    Congratulations :)

    • Thanks for the support!

      It looks promising, so I have high hopes of enjoying it as much as I do with the actual. If everything goes acording to plan, I am preparing a huge, HUGE, (and awesome) brother blog. The beta name is “All the electronVolts” and I won’t tell you what will feature, but keep checking, you might like it. ^^
