    I'm pretty sure that's illegal in the UK, I can't imagine paying a company for something before they've paid me? I'm not paying to have a job thank you very much haha.
    Have any of the other jobs gotten back to you?

    Hah, can't wait to see what you do around here!

    So I ended up declining the offer because they won't offer the relocation assistance (basically they cover your expenses for your cross-country move). They wanted to offer $500 but it's not enough, AND they want me to foot the bill and they'll reimburse me after 60 days...which is kinda messed up?. So I ended up saying



    So I continue my search!

    Omg yay! Congrats :D Are you waiting to accept the one in Pensylvania then? Or has the snow put you off too much in Colorado? haha

    Good news! I was offered the job! I got the phone call earlier today! The one in Pennsylvania!
    However, I went through two other job interviews (one in San Antonio and the other in Colorado) and both went well. The one in Colorado seemed to be interested, and kept asking me "are you SURE you want to move here?" because it snows a ton over there. lol

    Just wanted to pass that along! I see you're rockin' that teal, bro! congrats!

    Oh the CTR remake is sooooo good! It's hardly even a remake it's more of a remaster with all the new content that they put into it.
    And I had to buy Crash 4 digitally for switch, it isn't available in a physical copy in Europe I'm probably gonna import it from the US when I get the time

    I haven't touched Crash 4 yet. I'm still working through other games like FF7 Remake and the CTR remake. I had a neverending argument with my bf on why I wanted physical copies of Crash rather than digital. He bought Crash 4 on Digital and it bothers me. lol

    I booked a week off work and left my boyfriend for the week to go home and play Crash 4 when it first came out haha. And now that it's out on Switch I bought it again and I can live through the brilliant frustrations again!

    I still think I prefer the OG trio though :P

    It's not that easy, to be honest!

    Also cool Crash gif. I have yet to play the new game. The classic PS1 Crash is still awesome tho.

    Get you! Who knew that you'd end up with all these high status connections :P

    That sounds pretty cool, I expected it to be more animal crossing than minecraft haha

    Right now I'm more comfortable writing things up and talking/interviewing people via ZOOM. Calling officials by phone is one of my expertise. I even have the city Mayor on speed dial. lol I do some FB lives, though...however it's been a while (since the 2020 election).

    You can also go inside a mining cave and kill a bunch of monsters and slimes while finding secrets of Pelican Town while you're in there. I've been doing that more than finding an eligible bachelor to date/marry.

    Oooo you could be broadcast across the state soon! :P Is that something you'd wanna move into or are you more comfortable just writting things up?
    All I ever hear about it is the romance options actually, I rarely hear anyone mention the actual farming part of it lmao

    I got several interviews in the past week...one in Pennsylvania and three others in both Dallas and San Antonio. All TV news stations looking for peeps with experience in digital journalism. That's kind of my cup of tea. In terms of being ON TV...I need a bit more training and experience. So I'm not quite there yet. So whatever I land, I'll follow it, I'm pretty much open.

    Stardew is very chill. Haven't tried co-op yet, I'd like to though. It's more than just a farming simulator. Once you start playing it you'll forget time existed.

    That's some bs, I can't imagine working full time an not getting paid time off. Have you got any ideas of where you'd move to? Or is it just gonna be a follow the job kinda thing?

    I've been doing that myself, decided to try and get a living dex going in pokemon home and so far I've got all the non-sword and shield mons apart from a mew. How're you liking stardew? My boyfriend bought me it a while back but I never got into it much

    Yes! Somewhat full-time, I get assigned some stuff and I also come up with my own ideas. I work with a local TV station writing for their digital news website. :D I'm actually on the hunt for a better job (I love where I'm at, but I'd love to not be freelancing right now...because you don't have benefits such as health insurance and paid time off), so there's a 50/50 chance I may move out of Texas. I've been at it since Jan. of last year, had my own little cubicle and everything then COVID decided to kick me back home, so I have a home office now.

    I am lacking my gaming because of life. I just got back into Stardew Valley and gonna see if I can catch up on Pokemon before Brilliant Diamond and Legends Arceus come out.

    You're a journalist now ye? Is that a full time freelance thing or you just freelancing for covid?
    I've mostly just been doin' the same, working from home then playing games. My ring fit schedule has been lacking lately though haha
