So, it seems like something happy might be coming along...............
I have an interview on Monday and hopefully I have another one coming Tuesday or Wednesday with a Post-production house... am back doing a little work for Dawn, so I got money coming in.... so we'll see what happens! Also, talked to the people at Framestore CFC (the biggest Post house in Europe) and applied for a job there yesterday...... so is stuff happening? Well... yes, good stuff bad stuff... it'll all be sorted out soon!
Bad stuff first...
Ordered a new debit card from my bank, but they sent it to my old address. Someone, oh so kindly used it and took £300 from my account, so got my incompetent bank (HSBC, do NOT EVER get an account or do business with them!) to refund my money... then, they sent another card to me, but not to me, to my old address again!... which I had to go and cancel, and now I'm supposed to be going to pick up my new card (and FINALLY have access to my money after 3 weeks of this pathetic bullshit!) today....
Got my bike stolen yesterday.... of course, not in Peckham, no, people don't really steal stuff here, cause everyone is expected to already be poor... of course, it was in Kensington... Road my (little bike, got it on eBay for £1) bike to work yesterday and, vwalla, it dissapeared 30 minutes after I locked it up... fuckers!
The final interview for London Underground on Monday... not the greatest job, but it pays £22,000 a year and I get free travel
An interview (hopefully) early next week for the post production job that the guy called me early this morning about. He said that I was being unreasonable asking for £20,000 and should be asking AT LEAST for £24-25,000, so yea..... money money money... and a fucking cool job! :D So, like... ah, the idea that together me and Arianna'll be making £50,000+ ($100,000) a year together is slightly encouraging... especially being that we're supposed to be buying a house in the next year or so.... so whatever! So, yep... if I do end up getting this job, well... I'm taking everyone out for a wonderful night of craziness!!!!
I've put myself on a nice cocktail of drugs to sort the whole mood/bi-polar/manic depression thing... am on 500mg of Taurine (the stuff in energy drink), Ginkgo, St John's Wort, Iron (with B-12), and cod liver oil every day... have been trying to exercise more and stuff... and really, I feel a lot better!(it's gotten me to get off my ass!) :D
Am almost done with THE RING... no, not the shitty remake of a half-way decent Japo-film... the RING... Arianna's ring... have been working on it now for like 2 months and have finally gotten my soldering down pretty good and have been using some decent tools to make it what I want it to be.... going to ask the big question some time soon, but I want to have a job and be a bit sorted out so I can attempt to talk to her dad and not seem like a total loser who's willing to leech off his daughter forever............ so, whatever... we'll see how everything goes! (if you must know, which I'm sure you don't care, it's 18ct yellow gold with two 2-point champagne diamonds, two 3-point blue-green diamonds, and one 1ct aquamarine as the main stone... it's all spirally and looks quite organic... I kinda like it ;))
and that's that...
