Finally got around to taking my last driving road test after years of putting it off and months of dreading it since I booked it. Aaaaand it was fine! I know that I know how to drive, but something about that situation just scares me so much that I get terrified I'll freeze up or make a dumb mistake. But now I don't have to do it ever again! (Until I'm old, at least)

Wheeeeeee :mrgreen:

THE SHARKS WIN! Sharks are going to round three! I'm super fuckin drunk but man I am so excited. This is just super exciting for me, and it's been a hell of an adventure. Hockey is like the first sport I found where I am just into it, and I love it, and the fanbase for the Sharks is just great and welcoming and did I mention I'm drunk? Anyway.

SHARKS WIN AND I'M SUPER EXCITED.

New job feels pretty cool. The staff are super friendly.
I'm working as an inbound sales agent. Great thing, people actually want the service we sell. Otherwise they wouldn't call.
Turns out there are awesome perks as well. Such as a free beer every other Friday, the occasional (monthly) office party, and I heard a rumour about a trip to Hawaii if we meet a $200 million milestone of some sort this year. IT sounds awesome, even though I don't have a passport.

IX and I met up with Chrusher for dinner and strolling around Dublin, and it was probably the nicest evening I've had out in Dublin to date.

Getting food with Fayili and IX is always fun. Except...if they are nectarines.

It was a thoroughly nice time, I agree. Thoroughly. More people should come to Dublin and hang about with us.
Often outnumbered, never outpunned.

Note: in Ireland 'ye' is used as the plural of 'you'. It rather neatly avoids confusion online.

That's good, I don't think they would want another almost destroyed kitchen. Those things are disgusting.

My local library, which I spent a ton of time at growing up, bought three copies of my book! I went to see it on the shelf yesterday, and it looks like it even has a fair bit of wear, so I guess some people have been reading it. It's pretty exciting, especially seeing it just sit there on the shelf right above J.K. Rowling. :mrgreen:

So, 2 things:

1. My book has only 2 chapters left to write (before editing) :)

2. I was accepted to art studies in Finland (got 97/100 in the entrance exams), so I will move there in August :)

I came home from an enjoyable vacation to Ireland with my mum to find that I have a rather large tax refund on the way.

First round Friday and I am taking live calls. I am a very happy camper. Also slightly tipsy. Why they think giving us beer on the phone is a good idea I'll never know.
