Another deep thought today is that after meeting Jon Beck for a romantic hot chocolate is that I'm weighing up Korea because I am desperate, and that I really should be going to Europe to get some real action. If anyone of you is keen I have been searching on the web and if I don't get this Council job as an Administration Officer I am definitely keen. Go to www.iep.co.nz , they have Work Britain and Work Ireland offers and they seem to help you the whole way. You only need proof of $3000 for the UK and $2500 for Ireland. You pay $2100 for the flights. I'm so tempted as I have the money saved up from my working days, Cash Battle ($712.50) and writing for testrugby ($500). The next leaving time is NOV 15 which would mean missing Christmas here. Anyway if you are contemplating it give me an email, it would be great to have company. This would put me closer to some of my goals in life like attending Football, Rugby and Cricket World Cups. I am a little peeved that I wasn't allowwed time off to go to a match at the 1987 World Cup between Wales and Canada won 40-9 by the Welsh. It was my only previous shot at attending these.
Another option I am working on is if I get this Administration Officer job is getting a TESOL Certificate and going to Germany and teaching English and then going to the World Cup in the middle of next year! However this would defeat the purpose of having a permanent job!
Well I am struggling to maintain my kudos in the fantasyrugby realms. In writing as the Guru for testrugby.com I almost over analyse selections making my performances down on the glory days. Hattrick.org is going well. It is more of a Premiership Manager game. For some reason my boys are winning the competition games and losing the friendlies which is great in a sense, but today I am losing to a Div 6 team like myself with worse players.
Last night I went diving with Sammy, Rach, Em, G, Jon and Josh. I skinned my toes on the dive board, but apart from that it was great hanging out with my flatmates and the Student Soul crowd. They seem more amicable than the masses at DCBC in general. On Monday we went to the beach and played some Ultimate and Touch.
