The Morning After

Well I had my party last night, for my 19th birthday.  Had a great night, lots of people, loads of booze and lots of fun.  Was a fair few empty cans and bottles around to tidy up this morning but it was worth it.  Didn’t take too long to tidy up.

I got a few cool presents from my mates, like a pair of PaintBall guns, so we now have a multi-coloured shed.  Got given a couple of cases of cider too so now i should have enough to last me a few days, I’ve got about 50-odd cans left.

I had my interview for the IS Technology Trainee Technician job on friday, that went ok.  The personality profiling thing I had to do was a load of rubbish, but nevermind.  And the test they made me do was a piece of piss, I had to note down five icons from the control panel, remove Acrobat Reader, then reinstall and get the OS version and Service pack from the system applet.  Even someone who doesn’t know hardly anything about computers could have done that test so I don’t really see the point of it, but never mind.

I don’t rekon I’ll get that job, but it doesn’t really matter as where I’m working temporary at the moment and I’ve worked part-time for about the last five years want to offer me a full time job now apparently, so I’m gonna go in somewhen and discuss that with them and decide if I want to go for it or not.

Well that’s about it for now, can’t think of anything else to day and I’ve talked about enough rubbish already.

Getting Closer

Well the job interview is getting closer, only a few days to go now.  I was reading the letter they sent me the other day and i found out i was supposed to phone them to let them know if I was going, so I had to do that a bit quick.

I went out on Friday and Saturday night, that was fun.  Friday was a mates 30th birthday do, where I somehow managed to win a dancing competition, don’t ask me how, I rekon it was a fix.

Saturday I went to a Christmas party.  Yup, a Christmas party in July  we’re mad.  I’m glad I went now, was a real good laugh, quite a few people there and they had a snow machine which was fun.  The walk home which is about a 10 minute trip took us about an hour as we had some hedge jumping competitions and traffic cone wearing on the way, which was nice.

I bought a copy of StarCraft of eBay the other day, I played it years ago but lost the CD and felt like playing it again.  I wonder how long it’ll be till I get bored of it.

I also bought a smoke machine off eBay the other day, that arrived on Saturday.  I tested it and it seems to work fine.  I’ll get to, give it a proper use on Saturday at my party, for my 19th Birthday!  woohoo, I can’t wait, should be a good laugh, all my mates (all two of them j/k), lots of booze and now with added smoke.

Rejection

Well I didn’t get that IT Systems Administrator job, which I was kinda expecting anyway, but t’is a shame as that sounds like it would have been quite a good job.

Nevermind, I’ve still got my interview next friday to look forward to and then my big old annual piss-up, otherwise known as my birthday party.  Woot.

Job Interview Num 2

I still haven’t heard back from that IT Systems Administrator job, I’ll probably hear back this week some time hopefully.

I got a letter yesterday saying I’ve got another interview, this time as a IS Technology Trainee Technician.  I haven’t got a clue what the IS bit stands for but never mind.

I have to have a personality profile, then a test and then the actual interview, so that should be uh fun.

It’s not till the 29th, so I should have heard about the other job by then, which is nice.

Progress

I had a job interview on Monday, to be a IT Systems Administrator which would be kinda cool to get, make me sound important.  I dunno when I’ll hear back, but no doubt I’ll post on here.

Well I dunno if anyone actually cares or if anyone’s actually reading this, but in the time that I haven’t been working, I’ve been working on Extra Tools.

Who Sent It works now, so that’s another one done.  I’m just worrying about the basics for now and at a later date I’ll improve them and add options etc.

Next on the list is Recent Files, allowing you to resend the last few files you’ve sent to your contacts.  It can currently detect files sent by dragging them onto the conversation window and now I’m working on hooking the send file dialog, which is proving to be, uh fun.

Extra Tools

Now I’m done with college, I’ve started coding Extra Tools, a plugin for Messenger Plus! to add some extra things to Messenger.

I’ve got the first few almost there now so its going well.I’ll post here when there’s more progress.

I Got My Grade!

I’ve been back to college to see what Grade I got for my last 2 years work and I got DDM (Distinction Distinction Merit) which I’m pleased with, the 2nd highest I could get.

Now lets hope the jobs start rolling in!

Yea right.

Last Assignment

Well even though I’ve technically finished college now, I’ve still got one more assignment to finish, which I should be working on now, but I got bored so I’m taking a break for a bit.

But once I’ve finished that I’ve got to take it into college, but then I really am finished there. Hooray.

Finished College

Well this is my first post for a month or so, I kinda forgot I had this thing.

But I’ve finished College at last! Now I suppose I better start looking for a job, or should I just be a bum with no job?
