As I’ve been rambling on about it quite a few times, I’m sure you’re aware I want to do some mentoring of some kind at my college. Well, looks like I’m officially in. Times and such haven’t been set but I’m sure we’ll work that out. It’s all formal-looking as I received an email stating the code of conducts and rules and regulations etc. Should be good stuff. The ‘interviewing’ process that happened today was something I had never experienced before. It was a group interview type thing (which I only found out about the day before) and it was pretty unusual. For one thing, we started playing 20 Questions halfway through. I can’t remember exactly what led to those circumstances though. Anyway, the point is that 6 of us applied and we all got the job. Except, we’re still being tested as up until the half-term we’re in, what I like to call, the “trial period.” Where we have to keep an active log of who we deal with, where and when. Sort of a pain in the ass if you ask me, but I’m being paid. And if I’ve learned anything over the past 17 years of my life it’s that as long as your being paid the right amount, anything’s worth it. And wow, that was a double entendre if I ever did see one.
Anywayz, moving swiftly on, I also had my first Career’s interview today. It went pretty good actually, the woman there did a good job in helping decide what I wanted to do for the next few years. She also showed me how much I’ve narrowed it down already without me consciously knowing so. I’ve got a few courses in mind already, and also some universities that I think would be suitable. The hardest part is deciding which one I like best. Wish me luck, eh?
In other random news, the film for the Meniscus Film Festival – titled: “ANTICIPATION” – has been submitted… at least I think so. I’m still unsure on whether it has or not, last week Jamie and I walked all the way there to that guy’s house to hand him the DVD. We had to because it was the last day for submissions. We slid it nonchalantly through his letterbox before we noticed that we only made one copy of the damn film and freaked out. We spent the next few minutes double checking the house number and street sign to make sure we had the right place. And it was… we think. I told Jamie to check up on it, but he still hasn’t so I’m doubtful whether he has received it or not. Meh, I guess it’s just me being paranoid since we worked quite hard on it. And I’ve got to say, I’m quite proud of the little beast (little beast being a very bad metaphor for the film) and there are some genuine aspects where I think it looks damn professional. And the other parts… well, let’s not talk about those shall we? When, or if, they put the damn thing on YT I’ll be sure to link to it right away. But until then, you’ll have to wait. Sorry.
There’s also news about the 5-a-side league that we were thinking of joining, but so far have been unable to do so. Ash got a call that we can replace a team that has dropped out mid-season. Which means we’re joining half way through the season so the points (if we get any) are worth shit but oh well. I’ll be playing for fun anyway. It just means less pressure for us.
Oh and I’ve also been trying the new Messenger BETA and it’s quite good. Everything looks, well, bigger. As well as cleaner and more minimalistic which is always a pro in my book. And frankly, the tiled mood thing is awesome. I suggest you check it out as well.
If you think I’m gonna provide the link than you’d be wrong. I seriously CBA at the mo, so you’re going to have to google-it-you-moron. I mean, how hard can it be?
Oh, and DRAGON BALL.
[UPDATE] I just completed my analysis section for my Computing project. And it was actually quicker than I thought. It was still a pain in the proverbial ass, but at least it’s done now. Just the other sections to go… Well, when we get to it. The Analysis was in for tomorrow and I had hardly done anything! Thank god I’m quick at typing since it clocked in just under 2000 words and 8 pages. All that in about 2/3 hours. Insane.
Anywayz, I still need to decide on my 5 choices and I’ve broadened my search so that it incorporates London as well and some other cities and towns. ‘Cos originally I wanted to go to a Uni near a large~ish city but not London because of the insane costs. But now, thinking about it… London wouldn’t be all that bad I reckon. It’ll certainly be more lively than where I’m living now; hell Humdrum’s more lively than this place.* So far I’ve marked a few prospective Uni’s that look promising. Leeds U, Manchester U and possibly even Aston. Problem is, I have to decide which is my first choice now. And since it will affect my next 3/4 years, and possibly the rest of my life, I’m going to pick wisely. Which is a first for me. :P
