      The last three things I've tried to post here have failed.


      Wonder if this one will work.

      Definitely the weirdest thing I've done this week was summarise Monty Python and the Holy Grail in Japanese.

      Saw a guy in Epcot today wearing a Funhaus shirt. This is the first person I've seen in my entire trip wearing anything RT related.

    • Insomnia and international travel do not mix well

      I've not slept through a single night since I got to the U.S. Yesterday was okay but today I woke at 4.30 and haven't been able to get back to sleep. It's sad because I was hoping to meet up with a friend today for the first time in four years but it looks like we're both going to be too ill to do anything.

      BA oversold out flight. Now we get to wait in the airport until they tell us if we can get on or not.

      What a mess.

      I put this down to not being on my laptop so much anymore. Although I really should be applying to grad jobs again (tis the season!), my new job has been tiring me out and left me with very little energy for anything other than playing video games.

      My new job is actually really good though. It's retail for a really big company and they're really working hard to change how they do things. I had a very old fashioned view of them before they hired me and explained all the changes that have been happening (and how they were trying to avoid what happened to Woolworths). There's also a lot of variety in my work and the training they gave was way beyond what I expected. I've even been selected as one of the people who will be training other people in my store on the new work website and social media (I'm the techy one...send help).

      Now that I'm not so tired and have something resembling a routine...I'm going on holiday for over two weeks. Keep an eye out for me in DisneyWorld.

      Made an application to one of my favourite gaming companies again today.

      I was rejected last time but they told me to apply again. Now I just need to study a lot for their test (provided they put me through to that stage again).

      This is nerve wracking. It's not my dream job but it's one I'd never really considered and think I would probably enjoy a lot. To not get through again would be quite upsetting.

    • P4G failure

      I posted a while back that I was doing a second run to finish off the trophy collection.

      Well I failed pretty spectacularly. Due to some poor planning, I ended up not finishing the Fortune social link. It was rank 9 and then I ran out of time. This was the only social link I didn't finish.

      I'll be honest; I'm pretty annoyed at myself. I worked hard to try and finish them all on time and while I could get the trophy for finishing the persona compendium, it would take another 50 hours to finish them all and I'm not willing to put that in at this point.

      Instead, I'm going to finally try and finish FFX. It has always bugged me that I never got through it and with the Vita, it's going to be a bit easier to pick up and put down.

      Who's looking forward to on the job training tomorrow?

      Certainly not me, I'm busy writing cover letters so I can try and be a game translator.

      One day (maybe).

    • Missing save file

      This isn't overly irritating but somehow my save file for Monkey Island 2 disappeared a couple of days ago and was replaced with one where I was 63% through the game. I'm really confused because haven't had the game installed on this laptop before so I don't know what happened there. Does anyone know if this is a common occurance?

        Thanks. Actually looking at the page a bit more would probably help too. If only I could stop watching Sailor Moon.

        I recommend joining the Latecomers and RvB:UK groups. That's how I found friends! And just comment on people's stuff and whatnot.

        Hooray, I have two friends now!
