      Including me. Here's what I've been up to:

      - Turning down the college course I got into, for various reasons
      - Not being employed
      - Not working on my dissertation

      I'm great.

      I did however go down to Manchester for a Magic: the Gathering Grand Prix, and had a lot of fun. But yeah, a job and some money would be nice, and y'know, for life to actually cut me some slack for once.

      Disappeared from EVERYTHING because I was having a mega stress about life/everything, but I just got an email telling me I'd been given an unconditional offer of a place on a Computer Games Development course at college. :D I didn't actually think I'd get in given that the odds were not entirely in my favour but WOW. Just got to phone up and confirm that the fee situation is a go and looks like I'll be doing that in August. (Fingers crossed the fees are fine...)

      Now I just need a job!

      So due to my chronic unemployment and subsequent lack of money, I'm not going to be able to come through for this after all. smiley2.gif Really gutted as I was looking forward to seeing everyone again! Hopefully by the time the next one rolls round I'll be better off and able to come!

      Basically I'm having to come to terms with the idea that the last five years of my life in terms of education - actually in terms of most things - have been a disaster. I have a degree that qualifies me for absolutely zero, unless I want to teach (I don't) and I'm stuck applying for jobs that I could have been applying for straight out of school. I was pretty miserable in uni for various reasons and didn't enjoy it as much as I could have.

      I'm really considering doing a college course, just so I feel like I actually have something worthwhile. If I hadn't done English at uni I probably would have really enjoyed doing something with computers, or games, or something, and at the very least there's a lot more scope for the future in things like that.

      Problem is, I have no relevant qualifications. No Standard Grades, no Highers, nothing. So it's just another thing I'm completely not qualified for.

      I'm pretty bummed out and pissed off.

      So there's this girl who used to work with me, and we had a crazy brain sync going on. Like we'd finish each others sentences, and be really in sync, and a couple of times I'd go in and ask a random question and she'd answer it without even thinking about it and I'd be like WHOA.

      It was a lot cooler than it sounds.

      Anyway last night I had a really weird dream that I'd had a baby and I woke up feeling really creeped out. Went on Facebook, found everyone congratulating her on her new baby which was born LAST NIGHT.

      First of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY AILSA!

      Jealous of everyone who got to go have fun at Tabletop Day! Especially jealous that I missed Cards Against Humanity hahahaha. I can't wait til the Game-a-Thon next month so I can hang out with yous all again! YAY GAMING!

      Job hunt's a disaster, uni's a disaster, I'm pretty poor but I had an awesome day today playing Magic: the Gathering and hanging out with my friends in the pub. So fuck unemployment and badly-organised Masters courses. smiley12.gif

      I'm going to the Hard Rock tonight for my friend's birthday. I'm unemployed as of tomorrow and going to have to watch my outgoings but I'll be damned if I don't have one of those bitchin' cocktails!

      FOUR BANANAS.

        I'm doing good thanks! Congratulations on the unconditional offer, that's a fantastic achievement, I'm so pleased for you! Quite a departure from your writing course, no? Do you have any idea of the kind of games that you'd like to design?

      Hey, we missed you at the Tabletop event yesterday. A lot of fun was had. How is the job search going? Will you be coming to the next RvB event?

      • Garry FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        I played Avalon, Munchkin, Love Letter, Settlers of Catan, Cards Against Humanity, Pandemic and I think others also played Dixit and Ticket to Ride. Oh and we played some Marvel card game.

        I should be at the charity event. Not 100% yet.

        Aww keep your spirits up. Good things will come eventually.

        Aw I'm sad I wasn't there! Nice to know I was missed though! Haha what sort of things did yous end up playing? I'm coming to the charity event on the 10th of May so I'll see you there if you're going! :) The job hunt's pretty pathetic so far, been applying for a few things but nothing really coming back...could do with the money coming in again so I'm hoping it picks up haha.

        Yeah, I was thinking "what are you on about mate?"but also that I was about to get a pretty amazing deal. It's nice to add this one to my collection.

      • Ridarkulous

        5 years ago

        Amazing! Someone said Spyro was CRAPPY?! I must admit to not liking the first Spyro game as much as GtG and YOTD but it's still a hell of a lot of fun. Those egg thieves can gtf though.

      Hey, welcome to the site! It's awesome that you're from Scotland and into punk rock and vinyl and stuff.

      I sold off my vinyl collection a few years back to fund my Masters year, but I had some cool stuff like the Less Than Jake cheese 7'' and test presses by awesome pop punk bands like The Steinways. What sort of albums are in your collection?

      Also, if you love REM you should check out this awesome YouTube channel called 90s Bands on TV. This guy taped pretty much every cool TV performance of bands of that era and uploads them. There are a few REM videos on there:

        That's cool that your parents had such good taste in music! There's an amazing bootleg floating around online of acoustic demos of The Beatles - White Album. They all got high and recorded everything on a little multi-track tape recorder, so there are sections completely out of time, but it's just perfection!

      • Ridarkulous

        Hey! Sorry it took me so long to get around to replying! I've managed to steal inherit most of my parents' collection, so I've got some Beatles, Rolling Stones, a few Bob Dylan bits and pieces from my aunt...oldish stuff! I've got hold of some R.E.M. and a few pop punk albums (Broadway Calls are one of my favourites right now). It's a shame you had to sell yours. :(

        And thanks for the links! Unfortunately that's as close as I'll ever get to seeing them live... :(
