And because of this I need a proper job now that there is no more college…. Don’t get me wrong I love the folks at the cinema, but I’m not going to get anywhere if I stay there so I am thinking of new career options. Events? Tourism? Public Sector? I need something that pays well enough for me to start saving for a place for Jaimie and myself, also one where I can work my way up the career ladder, for most of my working life my jobs have been temporary, the plus side of this is the skills I have picked up from the various roles I have undertaken, but the downside is that I at 24 I am on part-time wages in a cinema, whilst most of my friends are getting promotions and buying their first flat and second cars etc. So the search has begun and I cannot wait to start a new chapter in my life, hopefully sooner rather than later!
Since my accident (nearly 8 weeks ago) I have taken EVERY opportunity to go out, in 2 weeks I have had 3 all nighters(!).
The first night out was for my manager Johnny who was leaving to work in London as a film buyer for Vue (Lucky bugger). The night started off with everyone meeting in Walkabout for drinks, it was great for me as I hadn’t seen ANY of my work buds for the 6 weeks I was off. After Walkabout we popped along to Buddy Mulligans down the Grassmarket, then Opium where I thought it would be an AMAZING idea to get up and dance with a gamy foot/ankle (smart move Marshall…), once we had been kicked out of Opuim and the dust has settled from a small confrontation the last place to go was the casino. This place is a complete dive, but it is open all night/morning, by the time we got there everyone was starting to feel sleepy and some people decided to head home, but not me! I was there until the bitter end and drunk drunk drunk! I got home at 9am the next day. It was a top night and an amazing send off for Mr Carr.
