So, it's been a few years now since I've been taking a competitive exam every year to go up the ladder at work.
It doesn't necessarily involve changing jobs or getting more responsibility, but it does mean better pay and the *perspective* of more responsibility after the *next level* exam.
Every year until last year, I failed at the written part, didn't even get to take the oral test.
Last year, I did well in the written part, and then completely flunked the oral.
This year, I did well in the written part, and thought I did okay at the oral...
Fast forward to Thursday afternoon, when the results were published.
They were taking 8 people out of the 15 that took the oral.
I was number 9.
Then on Friday, I got a call from HR : they are actually taking 2 more people than was planned.
Yay me !
So that means I'm going to have a 2.5-month training session from April on, on the other side of the country (pretty much all expenses paid).
And then, I'll be back to my workplace, all ready to use my newly-acquired superpowers.
Zaphod 4 Prez sounds like a good idea...

Right, so the first estimates are out.
In two weeks, we'll get to choose between the ex-banquer who doesn't have a clue, or the daughter-of who hates pretty much everyone but herself.
Could be worse.
At least, we have a second round.
She probably won't get many more votes than what she got this time around.
It's NaJo time! (Superfrenchie)

November 14th 2015 - WHY?

Probably not the most reliable news source, but the first one I could find with a full translation of President Hollande's speech in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris.
"In the face of this dread, there is a nation that knows how to defend itself, that knows how to mobilize its forces and, once again, will defeat the terrorists."
Not really the best way to wake up on a weekend.
Guess I've found my subject for today's NaJo. I'll be telling you about the atmosphere here. We're 3/4h from Paris by train. it's both far away and really really close.
