I've been doing this shit too long not to wonder "where was I this time last year?", so with that in mind, I thought I'd take a look..

2001
Three years ago, I was all bollocks in pseudo love with my 'secret girlfriend', but at least I was happy.. this was at a time when the phrase 'secret girlfriend' hadn't yet come back to bite me on the arse, and when I was far too naive for my own good.

2002
Two years ago, I was still on the American girls, though that was to only last for another couple of weeks, before I turned utterly fickle and entered my girl-hopping phase.. I haven't actually been single since, now that I come to think of it... I was entering a creative type period, and started to actually record the junk I played on my guitar. I've kinda given up on that for now, for one reason or another, but I still have all the kit, in case I want to get back into it...

2003
This time last year, I had just met Rachael for the first time, and was all excited about everybody moving into the house.. My girlfriend was on the other side of the world, prompting me to rapidly lose interest in the aforementioned fickle manner. I was hurtling towards the end of my time at university, and was slightly concerned about failing, and worrying that I wouldn't get a decent job, and had just wasted the last three years. Turns out, due to being awesome, all my fears were unfounded, and I proved eventually that uni was the best waste of time ever :o)

due to being awesome

Ego's looking a bit flat there, you might want to pump it up a little just to be safe. Wouldn't want you going out on the open road, lose control, and get hit by a truck now, would we?

I bet that sounded funnier in your head, didn't it..

I just have your best interests at heart.

'San Dimas Highschool Football Rules'

i really like that song
erm sorry that was a bit irrevelent

Compared to my cover, the original sucks ;o)

now thats something i wish i had a copy of!
i can swap it for my cover of dammit

I meant to ask you this at practice on Sunday but forgot:
How did you find your current job? Did you apply before you finished uni or after? And did you apply for a specific job, or just send out a bunch of CVs etc and get lucky?

Lloyds tend to employ people all year round..

I signed up with Reed online, and uploaded a CV. They got back to me within a week and said there were positions at Lloyds, and could I come in to speak to them, do a couple of tests, and stuff. Given the other people who joined at the same time as me, it was evidently impossible to fail those tests, since they seemed to take anyone...

Getting a job with Lloyds isn't too difficult, but it's a bit tricky finding one that's interesting - a lot of the people who joined with me left because they found their particular jobs rather boring. It all depends what they get you to do there...

Hello,

Are you the moderator of the "Ask me Anything" community? If so, can you tell me why I've been banned there?

Thank you.

One of the answers is no, the other is yes

Thanks. Sorry to bother you in your journal.
