    Yeah I was just like, lol yolo let's just apply and see what happens, nothing to lose and hopefully everything to gain.

    BAU = Business As Usual
    MI = Management Information

    I squeeze in some time at night to play 3DS or read a book while holidaying it up. Otherwise you should be out and about while on vacation not on your ass.

    I do watch some anime now and again these days but it's on my laptop not my TV so . . .

    A fair amount of it is antique furniture that my mum has collected over the years - she is an antique fanatic. Yeah I bet you were the biggest troublemaker in the bathroom department back at your folks home :p

    who are we punching

    Hmm then better to have applied than not applied at all. Hope that lady luck is on your side. o/ I'm not sure what BAU MI means; where do you work?

    Ehhh the holidays. Too many people in a small space for me to handle. I could never play on my laptop or 3ds or even phone in peace. D:

    That's true then, if you don't watch TV often enough, then get something that matches your needs. I tend to watch anime at night while eating dinner. Cats aren't allowed in my room when I have food because they'll jump up and put their entire face in my dish or drink.

    Pretty nice stuff, I'm sad that my dresser is basically those 3-cube plastic storage things from Walmart. I do have a huge closet, though. I love having my own bathroom. I didn't like sharing the one bathroom with my brother and parents when I lived at home.

    No, not yet. The advert went live end of last week (Friday 11th). I suspect my boss will leave it open for around a month before getting back to applicants. So I think early December. I'm probably screwed if anyone else applies for the position internally though I do have a few advantages over other applicants. But even if no one else applies there is always the chance I get shot down anyway and my boss decides to look externally for the position. So it is a long shot as I say but the probability of me getting the position is not zero! As a company, we get an annual bonus at the beginning of each year as well as a small pay increase. Outside of that, unless you get promoted, your salary ain't going up. My role is very repetitive as there is a suite of BAU MI that needs to be completed every day / week / month haha. That's not the entirety of the role though as we also respond to adhoc requests from the business as well as R and D work.

    Yeah and while I would say my laptop is too big to take with me on holidays and such, it's a great tool for home use.

    That's the thing, I wouldn't use my PS4 enough to justify the 4K TV I don't think. I don't even watch TV so . . .

    Yeah most of my furniture is handed down from my parents but my parents have nice furniture haha so yeah. I actually posted some pics of my place here;

    Heya, did you hear back from the department? That would be a great opportunity to learn his skills and knowledge. :o Also a great moment to earn a much higher salary and spend it on shenanigans. I'm happy I got a $250 bonus this month. :D My work can get repetitive as I enter bills and prepare financials by every 20th of the month, but it's a cozy little job that I'd like to stick with for at least a year.

    I bought a new mouse and that fixed my problem now. XD My desktop was powerful enough to run Borderlands 2 quite smoothly. It's been ages since I played Steam. I would recommend going big or going home sometimes... :P

    I'm happy with my PS4 and 32 inch TV though. I don't play it enough to justify a larger TV. My furniture is sparse, though. My parents visit every now and then. I take hand-me-downs from my older brother when he replaced his couch. I can't have anything nice because the cats still scratch furniture.

    Same with mine. Speaking about jobs, my line manager is leaving and there's an internal job advert for his Team Leader role. I am next in line in the team but I lack his technical ability. I can handle the management side of things but my business and technical knowledge is a far cry away from his. I've applied anyway and while the odds are against me, I do have some advantages over other potential candidates who apply. My company has grade levels and I am currently a 6B and this role is for a level 5 so if I got it, I would be skipping past 6A which would probably cause some controversy within my workplace I suspect. The pay rise though is stupidly big if I get it. Like I'm talking over £10k big >___>

    I have a gigabyte laptop which is a gaming laptop though I don't use it for gaming. It has plenty enough power although it is a 17 inch laptop so quite big. And yeah PS4 Pro though I don't have a 4K TV but maybe I'll get one of those also. I don't think it's worth it at the moment as I go through phases of console gaming.

    Probably, she loves cords and string s and breaking things. My new job is pretty lax about cell phone use. I'm not sure, I love the portability of a laptop, but want the power of a desktop. If you mean the ps4 pro then we can be ps4 buddies yay. Christmas isn't fun as an adult..

    Lol don't tell me your cat thought it was a real mouse ahahaha!

    I use my phone at work too, a lot of people do. As long as it's not excessive, there shouldn't be any issue.

    What kind of computer you looking to get? I will probably get myself a PS Pro for Christmas. Welcome to the adult world, you gotta pay for your own muk now.

    I'm not ignoring you, my cat broke my mouse so it's not clicking half the time now. I haven't been on my desktop since. I'm the crazy cat lady for sure. I'm on my phone at work though. I voted Republican so it is what it is. He's far from perfect and his personality is crude. I want a new computer for Christmas yet I can't wait that long. O also don't get presents all that much anymore

    I never bothered with the FF remakes though I did get the remaster of Valkyria Chronicles. I'm planning on getting the PS4.5 towards the end of the year but I don't think I'll shell out the money to get a 4K TV. I used to be quite into FF but nowadays I just want to dive into a game and play, rather than reading through strategy guides so I don't miss certain events etc.

    I have a couple of G's in my main bank account which can be used for emergencies and such. Which actually came into play . . . I recently competed in Poland (wrote a blog entry on it) but missed my return flight so had to book another for me and the guy I was travelling with because he didn't bring enough money. In fact, I had to pay for his tournament fare and some living expenses as well. The guy actually owes me over half a G . . . So yeah thankfully had the bail out money because being stuck in a foreign country would have been the utter muk let me tell you lol

    Ah, you have found companionship with your feline friends, may I call you the crazy cat lady? The stillness and silence are my companions.

    I could say the exact same thing about women and trouble. Seriously, I swear there's a lot more trash in society these days than in the past. That's both men and women by the way . . .

    Anyway, welcome back, I hope you stay a while and don't decide to vanish without a word for months on end . . . But I am guilty of the exact same crime so . . .

    Any end of year / Christmas plans?

    I never ended up getting No Man's Sky, but I did get Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD. :3 Been pretty happy with it and I may pick up the upcoming FF15.

    I have the Bachelor's degree in Accounting and would like to pursue a Masters in Business Admin. instead of Accounting as it's more versatile. I just don't know when to really fit in working full time and attending classes.

    That's good to have a mortgage instead of a rent payment; you're building the equity. I recommend building an emergency savings fund as it's helped me in the past when I didn't have a place to go. I'm working and living alone, but my cats keep me company.

    Best years outside of PC are still the 2007-2014 era when I was in high school and university. Although I have a lot more freedom since graduating, I miss having solid friendships. The girls in my cities are quite scatterbrains... I have a few friends now that love Smash Bros and anime as much as I do. However they're all guys and guys spell trouble. :p
