Way too excited. I've been wanting to buy a Wii forever with the Xmas money my Mom gave me and been looking around for the best deal. I went to like 5 video game stores today and randomly got the best deal (and service) in an HMV?! The guy let me swap the shitty free games you're supposed to get for Mario Kart (which should be £40) and another game of my choice £19 or less. Also they had the Beatles Rock Band which has been sold out EVERYWHERE and I figured with the money I saved I should probably buy it. OH MAN was I stoked and didn't think that 1. I have no car 2. It's a long walk to the bus stop/home.
The HMV guy was so nice and practically insisted he walk me to the bus stop as the area I was in was a 'hard neighborhood'. I said it was ok and haled everything to the bus stop and braved the horribly icy roads home.
In other news, I have a job, well I have for about 3 weeks now, I'm a cocktail bartender!! Well not yet, I have to learn all 190 Cocktails on the menu first, so right now i'm just in training. It's a really nice place http://www.fiftyfivebar.co.uk/
right in the 'trendy - alternative' part of London Camden. The staff are so fun and nice, and everyone gets along kind of like a big family it's really wicked and I'm so happy about it. After a month of looking for design jobs I decided to apply for ONE non-design job to see what would happen, the owner asked for a photo to be attached with the resume (probably to make sure I didn't have a 3rd eye or something). I decided to be risky and attached this:
Also so they could really see what I looked like, and I didn't get called in for an interview just for them to decide I didn't have 'the look'.
Turns out I make MORE money doing this then design and it's a good job for now and great skills for later!
now, to set up the wii!!!!
