If you've missed my last blog you can find it here- Best and Worst of 2012- Part I now to Part II of my Best and Worst moments on 2012-
May: I had an interview with LoveFilm back in May, at first I'd thought it was going to be an Admin based job and seem to went pretty well on its interview but then the next day, came in for a Work Trail, which I thought it was good news and some work experince in an office based building. When I got to Clayton street there were quite a few people and then the interviewer said to everyone we are getting the Metro to Byker. This is where I thought where the office was going to be, but it turns out that the interviewer was someone from TalkTalk. We went to the middle of no where, where there were just houses, where we had to obersered the interview as he kept knocking on people's doors asking if they recived there package/leaflets asking if they were interested in TalkTalk Broadbrand.
This made me and everyone esle very angry and annoyed where everyone thought they were doing office based stuff and not doing door to door sales for TalkTalk. I did complain asking why are we doing this and shouldn't this be in Retail/Sales not ADMIN/OFFICE; after walking around people's houses in the middle of nowhere headed back into Newcastle, and filled out another application sheet saying what you remebered on your trip out and what were the best bits and worst bits of the trail.
I could never do door-to-door sales or facing customers face to face because I do find it stressing, my friend from college went for the same today and he just found out what kind of stuff he'd be seeing the next day. This job was posted on TotalJobs and came under Admin and it never said door-to-door sales, if it was doing office work for LoveFilm and a bit of telephoneing I would have been fine. But going through all of that yesturday really did made me angry, I doubt I didn't get the job but glad that I didn't but least I've had another interview the day before.
The Avegers was my favourite film for 2012 went with one of my friends to seeing, I wasn't a fan of The Iron Man series to begin with but after watchig The Avengers it was really that good, I am a Marvel because I do ejoy the Spider-Man series but films before The Avengers were really good to like Captain America and Thor.
June- It has to be my favourite month March was good for SUNNYCON and it's line up on guests, went to NEMACON which was down in Middlesbrough and I really did had an awesome time with my friends and even made a load ofnew friends on that same weekend. I think I was the only Persona 3 cosplayer throughout the whole weekend and quite a few people knew who I was and a few people I met were Persona fans too
(A few people wanted a group photo on Persona cosplayers)
I even met Greg Ayres in person who did a few voices for certain animes like Air Gear, FullMetal Alchemist and Negima!, he loved my blue hair wig and quite a few people over the weekend asked me the same question is that real hair? I did play some Sonic and Knuckles which I've not played in a long time and my favourite level as always been Flying Battery Zone, me, a Mario cosplay and a few other people random started singing the Theme music for it and it was awesome Mario even did the sound effects from the speed, jump and flames. I traded in my DS-Lite and bought a 3DS on that month too and another job interview for an Admin Apprentice but I didn't get but another interview which is fair enough.
July- A few weeks after Nemacona a few people I met wanted to meet up in Newcastle and suggested a Cosplay Picnic and that went down really well got to know a lot more about other people and almost every Saturday since then we've been meeting up in town and hanging out either in cosplay or not in cosplay. There was another Mini-Anime Event which was held at Gateshead Library which was Anime Attacks and I went as Professor Layton again for one day and then went as Fuijimoto (Poyo)
I ordered my Sunnycon Ticket for March 2013 and anyone who ordered theirs early got entered into a Raffle which was a Hatsune Miku Stature- Love is War and it turns out I actully won it Picked it up during Anime Attacks and I really did rub it in everyone's faces-
Not only that I even won a BlackRock Shooter Figma on that same weekend too from entering a random competition from an Anime magazine called MYM. Wasn't specting to be that lucky on that month, plus spent most of my time playing Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance (3DS) through that month and of course it was my 23rd Birthday as well.
Another surprise for that month after downloading the game for free, SLENDER however is very short and very scary which just involes you finding 8 pieces of paper in the middles of the woods with no weapon or health. I find it hard not to think about SLENDER because it's that scary and had trouble sleeping on the first night, I havn't been this freaked out since Project Zero/Fatel Frame 1 (PS2) which I've still havn't beaten because it's too dam scary trying to take photos upfront and ghosts trying to drain your health. If SLENDER was a really long game it would be twice as scary and reviews sites would give it good ratings and of course gamers trying to beat the game in one sitting without being scared.
August- A great month to be hanging out with many people I've met at both Sunnycon and Nemacon we actully had meet-ups 2-3 times a week, even had a Beach Party/Trip at one Saturday. I didn't mind be out of the house more luckly I did take my 3DS/PSP with me half the time and plus the Olympics was pretty good as well wasn't specting Great Britian gain so many medals.
Pre-ordered Persona 4 Arena (PS3) at my local GAME since I got some gift vouchers to use at Eldon Square, but after I pre-ordered the game I found out that the game had been pushed back to a week later which was going to be Aug 31st but they changed it to September 7th I was going to cosplay as the Persona 4 Protaganist and pick it up in person. The downside is that this game was never released in 2012 and has been pushed back til sometime in 2013, just hope the wait will be worth it til then.
During the Summer I also watched quite a few good movies during my time-
- Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man
- The Dark Knight Rises
- K-ON Movie (Watched online)
