Excuses, excuses!

Here’s a filler post just to let you know what I’ve been up to. I’ve had a lot of fun and met some really great people recently. Surrounding myself with gamers and geeks alike has brought back the vigour for gaming that had been sneaking away for the past few months.

Last weekend I was volunteering at Multiplay’s Insomnia Gaming Festival in Coventry!

The photo above was from working at the green screen photo booth 🙂 I really was that happy ’cause I managed to break and fix the photographer’s chroma key set up before he got back to notice!

I also did a bit at check in and spent a day helping save YouTubers from being mobbed by small children and their angry parents.

Aside from that, there was so much going on that I almost regret volunteering so I could’ve spent more time enjoying the festival. Half a day is not enough time to explore everything there is to see, especially once Insomnia 56 moves to its new home at the NEC.

For a start, I would’ve loved to have taken my own console and made a home in one of the expansive LAN halls and I think next year I’ll definitely be going back with my new (currently only imaginary) PC.

Back to reality and I started a new job with Game this week. It’s just a temporary part-time position at the moment but I work with a great group of people in a Head Office that has a Lego Darth Vader in reception and a chill room for breaks which is equipped with consoles, handhelds and a pool table.

I’ve also been super busy trying to prepare as much as I can for university. It’s been a while since I’ve done any proper learning so I need a little mental refresher. Like, what the hell is trigonometry anyway?
