So, yeah first post this month and it’s been more than 2 weeks since my last post! I could has sworn it was at least a mont, but there you go. Anyway, I guess I should be mentioning that’s been going on in my world since I last updated (though I really need to start writing in my LiveJournal again instead!). First of all, I’ve been looking for a job, and out of the 3 places I’ve applied to, I’ve gotten 2 rejections so far. The third company (which coincidentally is the first one I applied to) has yet to respond to me, but I’m told by my employment advisor that’s a good thing, so I’m going with that now, even if I am a little on edge over the whole affair. Oddly enough, the last company I applied for is actually the first to give me a response, which is quite amusing. The second one has had the most progress, but alas I didn’t get an interview. I’m gonna start looking for more work opportunities when I’m next out, so it should be interesting to see what comes up. Just as well I’ve a handful of CVs to give out now as well. Anyway, with all that out of the way, I’d like to mention some recent things I’ve noticed. First of all, as you may have noted by the random word placement, this weekend is the one which International Speak Like A Pirate Day will occur on, tomorrow in fact.
This pretty much means that I’m going to spend a lot of time in Guild Wars (GW), hunting for treasure and also collecting copious amounts of grog, go me! On a related notw, I’ve also gotten myself a second account, which works out cheaper than buying 4 more character slots, especially given that I got Guild Wars Prophecies (Prophecies) for 99p, after my Reward Card discount, which was quite nice indeed. I coincidentally, by sheer luck managed to get a copy of Eye of The North cheap (second hand with an intact code) off Amazon so I can bring my characters up North and get them reserved for Guild Wars 2 (GW2). Unfortunately, this means I’m only limited to the entire Tyria continent, which is by no means a bad thing, but I tend to like exploring the whole world. All that said though, I’ll most likely get the other campaigns over the next while, when they are cheap enough. I’m working on a few different title tracks for all the characters over two accounts at present, most notably Survivor (as the name suggests, it means you are not to die), of which I have 4 characters over all 3 campaigns marked for. I also have a couple of characters going for Defender of Ascalon (reaching L20 in the starting area). Before I continue, I’d like to reassure readers that this isn’t just going to be about GW, I just want to mention it now, as I’ve never really mentioned it before and it ties in nicely with the grog and loot collecting! Anyway, with that aside, I’ve been working on all of this for quite a while now, though the second account only has been around the past month. Still, there’s plenty to keep me going till GW2 comes out. Coincidentally, if anyone ever wants to ever hang out on GW, let me know and we can do so.
