    Not quite, Final stages of hopefully my new job final interview is booked.

    Slightly nervous but gathering my items together is probably all I'm worried about, I require no other preparation.

    Its quite intimidating in all but once its done I could be onto a pretty tasty beginning wage for a graduate.


    Other than that, I got paid today... expected some horrific number considering all the banked hours I had to do and the contract being dropped to basic.

    I'm certainly not cracking open a bottle of champagne with it but I don't have that feeling of impending doom anytime the petrol gauge light comes on.

    It's a pretty stressful time certainly, currently in the process of various application at various stages, not great timing for quite a few of them to start progressing when I have exams/coursework/project stuff to do but I guess I should be happy to be progressing :p

    What company/job is it if you don't mind me asking? I'm in a similar field, although I get the feeling you're more electrical/electronic whereas I'm more software focused. (feel free to PM)

    Send two applications about internship for the summer (I haven't had time to send more yet).

    1st. company - Get information after asking about the process how the company will handle the applications and how and when they'll will contact all possible candidates. In few weeks I should have confirmation if I'll end up to be interviewed or not.

    2nd. company - I sent another application to the other company on monday, they called me today and arranged a interview for next week.

    This all is too much for me after being totally unemployed student for 2½ years :D I am so happy just for the interview :D

    @Yariko, congrats bud! Don't know how it is over in Finland, but I've been struggling in Toronto since I graduated. Good luck with the interviews!

    Got a potentially awesome weekend lined up.

    Saturday I'm off to see Primordial live. I've wanted to see them live for a long time and I finally get the chance. I haven't been to a proper metal gig in ages. It'll be fun no doubt.

    Sunday I have a date with an insanely cute girl.

    Life is pretty good at the moment.

    Have an assessment on Thursday. Pass the assessment, and I get 3 months of training, followed by a 2 year contract. I just need to do some studying since there's going to be 2 interviews and 3 tests. Going to have to do some reading / prep for the "basic coding theory" and math aptitude test. Haven't done any sort of math in years, and I REALLY want / need this opportunity.

    I got myself a PS4. OR rather the mrs. bought one. It's a nice change of pace from a PC and all of the 'master race' nonsense is wasted on me. I've got infamous, destiny and i've been playing warframe on it. Fun times, pretty relaxing on a sofa.

    Oh and we're getting married soon, since we've never had the money to do so. We're saving up, but we'll get there.

    @Darkwisdom, if you buy the playstation plus, you get 2 free games a month. For ps4 I believe there is Thief, rogue legacy (though you have to search for it, it doesn't show up under the monthly ps+ games, probably because it's also available for ps3 and vita with ps+) and 1-2 more games.
