*brushing off cobwebs* There we are, still works fine. And I wanted to squee somewhere about this other than over gtalk.

...

I have a JOB! :D

Real Fundraising basically gets paid by charities out of their marketing money to send people out onto the street and fundraise. And I'm gonna be one of those people.

Accommodation, laundry facilities etc provided by the company, I get to travel all over the UK for a very decent wage, and the best part - it's FULL-TIME. No contract, no part-time, nothing like that. I have a steady job and I am over the moon. It means my internet time will be spotty and likely evenings-only, but that's a more than fair price to pay for this.

Congratulate me? :P

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG.

Barring my second reference being terrible, whch I know it won't be, I has a JOB! :D

The interview was last Monday, and I went in today at their request to see about familiarising myself with the place. It's the local tourist information centre, and they're taking me on as a trainee. 25 hours a week for above-minimum-wage pay. ^_^

2011 is turning out to be an awesome, awesome year. Yay 2011.

So 2010's been a pretty crappy year for me. Family fights, unemployment, general depressing things interleaved with a few moments of good.

2011, on the other hand, is starting with a huge BANG of awesome.

I move house on Monday, to a bigger, more comfortable flat and away from the noisy student housing area. Yay quiet comfy flat.

AND I have a potential job in the offing! Not going to make me rich any time soon, but it's above minimum wage, good hours, and well within walking distance of my new place. Just have to keep fingers crossed I get it.

Still. Awesomeness for the beginning of 2011.

:D :D :D :D :D

So, my official tenancy agreement ran out back in October, but the staff pulled a few strings to keep me here till we could find somewhere else. We've been looking around a few housing associations, and yesterday I got invited to look around a flat.

It's twice the size of my current one, it's warm, and I love the atmosphere. In short, I officially accepted it today and will be sorting out the paperwork over the next few weeks, and will be officially moving in on January 17th. ^_^

I also has job interviews coming up in the New Year, and possible college courses, and basically life is yay. ^_^

*happy*

...that I've not posted here for a fairly long time. Nothing's really been important enough for me to blog about. Until last night, because I've spent over £60 and two full days travelling to London and back (no mean feat, given I live at the other end of England) just to see my favourite band perform live.

That's right; in the... gods, only eight months since I was first introduced to Blind Guardian by the awesome [livejournal.com profile] lady_rilwen, they have become my absolute favourite band.

Cut for fangirlish waffling. )

So, back when I was on my Prince's Trust course, I did a two-week work experience placement at a local media centre. They had me making a short film (two minutes-ish) on the theme of respect, for this international competition.

I finished the film, handed it in, left and thought no more of it.

Today, I got the news that my film was one of the UK's SIX WINNING ENTRIES.

MY FILM.

In six weeks' time I'm going to Denmark with the other winners, and the winners from the other countries, for a week-long, all-expenses-paid-including-my-passport, media camp.

OMG.

O. M. F. G.

*incoherent*

Dude.

Seriously.

Awesome.

One of the newest Boarders has instantly become one of my best friends.

Kgarrett, I salute you.

Not only has he taken on about a third of the male parts for the PPC Movie and rescued our backs, but in the three days since he and I got talking, we've invented a new weapon, planned a pile of Crowning Moments of Awesome, and started an MST, which I have wanted to do for months.

In other news, my benefits are still being screwed with, I've ben ill for the last few days and I miss my boyfriend like crazy.

But awesomesauce makes up for it all, and I'm in too good a mood to be depressed.
