Work Update

It's been a bit of a while since the last update, so let me just fill you in a bit about my current situation:

I'm still at my current job, only this time it's part time. I get 2 extra days a week to myself, which means I have more time to sort my life out (or in this case, lounge aroound at home watching Anime and playing Video Games!)

I had hoped that this new arangement would mean I'd be a lot less stressed out about work, because I have someone else filling in for me while I'm away (not the girl with the pink hair, she left a while ago). Unfortunately, that's just not the way it's turning out.

My line manager still has a habit of calling me on my days off to bother me about work-related crap I don't care about, which makes me all stressed again by the time I get back to work later on in the week. When I AM there, everyone acts like I'm still full time and piles in the work onto me. This wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that I have LESS TIME to do everything, plus I can't use my machine because the other person is sitting at my desk!

Don't get me wrong, I kinda like that everyone still needs me, but I was hoping that the new guy would take the brunt of the work, leaaving me free to pursue my own interests. I suppose it's only been a month so far, so I guess I should just give it more time to sink in. In the mean time, I need to focus more on my own situation, and try and find a new job somewhere...

London Motor Show 2008










I haven't been to any anime conventions this year, so to make up for that, I decided to head over to the London Motor show at the Excel Centre this year. I had been thinking about going since I heard about it earlier this month, and it was the second to last day of the event, so I though "what the heck?"

I'm glad I went! I tell you, nothing beats seeing all those cool cars face to face! It was awesome to see all my favorite cars "in the flesh" so to speak. The highlight of the day was seeing the Legendary Nissan GT-R!
Without a shadow of a doubt, if I'd been able to see stuff like this as a kid, I'm sure the rest of my life would've been devoted to pursuing a career in cars!
I've uploaded some videos I took on my camera phone of the event as proof that I went there!
