The awkward moment when Tomorrow never comes...

I cannot tell you how sorry I am for being such a major letdown! I have been so damned busy, but I think I have finally got on top of it all...until this weekend when I go home for my Grandma's birthday!

Anyway, Friday I was in Reading. Why was I in Reading? Because I had applied for an event at Microsoft to find out a little behind-the-scenes information about the company, and find out more about their internships and graduates scheme. With expenses paid, how could I say no?

So yeah at 6.16am I was jumping on a train so that I would be in Reading for about 9.11am, giving me plenty of time to get the shuttle bus to the Microsoft Campus. I met two other girls who were going to the Microsoft event, and this is where the woman comes in threatening to call the police.

Basically we couldn't find the bus stop that the shuttle bus would be waiting at so I went up to her and politely asked her if she could help us. This was her response word for word:

"As a matter of fact I do [know where the bus stop is]. I'm not going to tell you though. Go away. Get away from me or I'll call the police."

So...that was that. It amuses me every time I think back to it, but I also hope that the lady is okay.

Moving swiftly forward, the event was awesome and I could definitely see me doing an internship there someday. I've never considered Microsoft as an option before because software engineering isn't really my thing, but now what with the new Windows Phone and the Suface out, you never know, they might be building their own aircraft ten years from now!

We also got tonnes of freebies, including a Microsoft t-shirt and sweets, so that totally won me over.

So yeah, that puts you up to date with that then. Other than that I have been the most boring person in the world: working, meeting coursework deadlines, sleeping when I can...I also tried fitting through a hanger at some crazy point...

I failed.

Oh, I also FINALLY got my LUTheatre hoodie so now I'm always really snug.

Speaking of LUTheatre I'm training up to be a techie, sooo...yeah! I'm sort of keeping to my goals for this year. I know this month I have done absolutely GARBAGE at updating my blog with stories, and I am still writing the last part of Timeless Words, but exams, work and coursework assignments come first. Plus I still have Writer's Fatigue. I have, however, already taken the first step to start afresh in time for February:

Yes, I have been lame enough to draw myself a schedule that outlines how I'm going to spend my hours each day. Told you I had no life! But I have designated hours where I must write something, even if it's really rubbish, so you will be getting something in the near future.

So how are you guys? What have you been up to? Let me know!

In the meantime, Song Of The Week is The Reflex by Duran Duran because it's just...SUCH a good song! Fle-fle-fle-fle-flex!

I love you guys, I'll be posting again Thursday (as in tomorrow but daring to make sure it actually IS tomorrow!), and keep smiling!
