Got an interview with Calumet (photography shop) in Bristol on Friday :D

Hopefully they go by previous customer service experience, since that'll be easier to take advantage of to get me the job. But obviously my photography experience will help as well, I'm just not quite as confident in my technical knowledge with that.

Hopefully an interview on my birthday will bring me good luck :lol:

Fjar bought me an awesome suit for my birthday today (birthday's next weekend) :D And it turns out the guys at Skopes are pretty damn helpful - who else would open a new shirt out of a pack just to give me something proper underneath whilst I tried jackets? I did buy a shirt in the end but a different one!

Why would anyone need to buy a birthday suit? I thought everyone had one already. :P


:lol: Good point

I wouldn't have thought you'd have needed to check anyone's cloth puns.

Last nights house party turned into a mass cuddle party and some amazing fella brought a lush massage bar to help everyone chill. Great vibes

Just come back from a lovely night out with some friends. We went to Frankie and Benny's and then went bowling. :D

Also, my employer has made me very happy today. I picked up some electrical items for insanely cheap prices and I got a 20% discount on my meal tonight. :)

Sitting listening to Truckfighters thinking "Damn, I'm actually happy for the first time in ages" Sat listening to good music, talking to Lis, Rich, Fjar and Jim on IRC, got an interview for a job I'll actually enjoy in a place I like, It's my birthday on Friday and I've got endless amounts of plans I can make for the two days before then a house party the day after. Got a date in Belfast on my birthday.

Things may be pretty tight at home atm, but in the grand scheme of things it's not half bad.. 2014, you are ok so far, keep it up!

All from yesterday:
Had goat burgers with Extra Hot Reggae Reggae sauce for lunch.
Found a good new Indian restaurant in Beeston.
Managed to have a good night out without breaking the rules of the "Dryathlon".
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Was singing at an Iron Maiden tribute thing for a mate's birthday last night. The other vocalist pulled out so I had to extend my 40 minute part of the set to 1hr 20mins. Managed to retain my voice throughout the entire set - longest I've sang live for :D

Had a lovely birthday weekend despite getting off to a poor start due to my shitty train being shitty (journey time: 10 minutes, amount train late by: 25 minutes). Got 2 meals, saw The Hobbit part 2 finally and now i'm relaxing in the silly fluffy jumper my boyfriend got me :)

Put my dishwasher-proof keyboard through the dishwasher for the first time and it still works perfectly. Would have been well annoyed if it hadn't lived up to its hype. Much easier than cleaning it manually.
