Hey there everybody.
As you may have noticed I have been very absent lately, but this is with good cause.
My Christmas temp job.
As some of you may know, I have been working in a Game store the past month or so as a Christmas temp. I absolutely love it there and I've met some awesome people, one of them being
who is probably the person I've gelled most with there! She's pure win you should check her out! It's been incredibly busy what with Christmas and all, and I've had a very busy couple of months. To start with I needed to get used to working there, it took a lotta learning and a lot of getting used to. But thanks to the awesome people there who were very supportive I now know my way around things there. However this is a temporary job and... Well... I thought I'd be secure and apply for another job.
The opportunity came along to attend an audition as an entertainer at a holiday camp again. I wasn't going to let my previous failure deter me so I thought, what the heck, and tried again. The audition was in South Wales, Cardiff, so a four hour journey by car with my friend
. This was pretty much a last minute audition as I didn't feel prepared to try again yet, which meant deciding last minute forced me to write a spontaneous ventriloquism sketch. I wrote a 3 minute script for myself and Cerys, and off we went. The audition was fairly scary, very different to the last one. We were given our numbers, went in with our group and off we went. To start with we had to answer two questions followed by performing our audition piece. After this, we were told to wait while they decided who they wanted to stay for the second half of the audition. They came back and numbers were read out, including ours. This was great but this meant the pressure was on as they were potentially interested in employing us. We then went onto the second half of the audition which involved us doing a one on one interview followed by a team building exercise. At the end of the audition, we were told we'd have around a 2-3 week wait for our call to let us know if we were successful.
3 Weeks later...
Of course, at the end of the 3 weeks, I did of course receive the call. I didn't have a very good outlook on my result, because the three weeks wait gave me time to think over the interview and what I believed I could have done better. But low and behold...
I was successful and so was my friend
So as of around February 2012, I will be working for one of the UK's top holiday resorts as an entertainer. I can't express how happy this makes me, I'm hoping it will be the perfect job for me since I love making people happy and have always had the passion to perform. This has been why I have been so absent, and I am hoping you will all understand. Getting this job does mean I will be moving away, I won't know where to until January, so I could be moving to anywhere in the UK. I don't yet know if I will have internet access which does of course mean more absence from DeviantArt. Not only due to the lack of internet but the demand of the job. I will of course keep you all up to date, but felt I needed to explain. Thanks for reading
To anybody awaiting requests, I assure you that they are on the way, I have not forgotten about you but as I have tried to explain I have had a very hectic few months. The same goes out to you guys who have been kind enough to fave and comment my work, I plan on replying to you all as soon as possible.
Also a massive thank you goes out to
for gifting me premium membership.
Have a very merry Christmas everybody
