So things have been progressing in my life. Some faster than others. But things really seem to be looking up. My job at the bike shop as a web/tech guy is going good, and I am still working at the Iron Skillet a bit too. Been stopping out at the Blarney on mondays to hang out with friends. Thats leading to some interesting things!
So yeah, I’m still alive and at the moment doing pretty well. I just need to keep looking at he positive sides of things, or something like that :D. Oh, and save up money so I can get out in the world!
Well, I have not updated in a while (what percent of blogs have a post starting with words like that?) Since the CONvergence post happened. Stuff like a Soul Caliber tournament held by Abby, Kyle moving to Florida, Darryl came back from Iraq again. My brother started college at MATC, and so did Tim. Bill’s mom got married and I was invited to the ceremony. I have also discovered the joy of Doctor Who (2005) and The Dark Night.
I need to update more often, it is hard to remember a good story line for old events. At the SoulCal tournament I did ok playing Rock. Won a few matches. At Darryl’s homecoming party we had some great food, a lot of alcohol and some fun times. I ended up staying up till 7 or so in the morning with Carry’s husband Bill. Second time I have done that. I have discovered how cool the Glass Nickel is.
This post is a bit of a mess/a list/rambling. But I am not sure how else to place it. Now to go draw something for an image to include.
My first week at SVA (Suby, Von Haden & Associates) finished last week! I am an intern in the Marketing dept. If you look at their website you can see what kind of stuff they do. And they do a lot.
We do internal items for people in the company, lots of invitations to events. And corporate collateral. So far I am getting my bearings and getting a feel for how things work and what I am doing. And as of now, it seems like I am going to like doing this for the summer.
Thanks go to all who helped me get this Internship!
I have been having fun the past few weeks. Last week after a trip to Madison with Tim we went to The Show Boat with Tony to see Swing Crew. They are a drinking band from here in Wisconsin, and they play every tuesday during the summer at The Show Boat in Wisconsin Dells. Tim liked them so much he decided to come along to see them during Canal Days on Friday. At one point we got him to go up on stage with them to do a song. He played the Belly Bongo during the song “My Ding-a-ling“. We went and saw them this past Tuesday too, and plan to next Tuesday!

In other news, I have a job! It is a full time job working in the in-house design team of SVA. I will be mostly doing production work, and a little designing. I think it will be a great opportunity for me to get into the industry and see what it can be like. I start on June 11th. Time to get my sleep schedule fixed! 🙂
In really old events…
I never made a post about the Party my teacher Emmalee had at the end of school for the ViComm students. It was tons’o fun. I learned I like Hummuse and Chunky Guacamole, at least the kinds Emmalee makes. The stuff in the Wikipedia link looks nothing like what she had there.
Afterword I went and hung out with some of the ViComm peeps. That was a blast. Though I now know Fleischman’s can give you a nasty head-ache the next day. I need to find a time to hang out with em again :). Also can’t wait for game night at Emmalee’s.
Well yesterday on the ‘Wings Run’ I stopped by MATC and picked up an application for a graphic designer position at MATC. Job duties:
Create posters, promotional materials, logos, and other graphic design projects for student life and involvement activities and services.
Develop video bulletin board slide presentations to be broadcast throughout campus.
Among other thingsâ€¦
I am turing the app in tomorrow (as in today, since it is 5:00am), I hope it goes well. Wish me luck! And thanks go to Nick for letting me know about the opening.
Well, I got the job. Last night I went in for the interview, and started right after it.
I worked with Darryl, and he showed me all the things I gotta do. Nothing too hard, its just remembering them all! I seem to have gotten the hang of the method the Cash Register works in, I just now need to remember where all the buttons are. The manager seems like a really nice person! She is flexible with hours, very trusting, easy to talk to.
And now I work Friday, then saturday and sunday. Then after that I have my first night alone on the 20th. I hope I get things all figured out before then.
Oh, and I am making $7.50 an hour, with it going up to $8.00 an hour after a month! $7.50hr is much more than I got at ace, and $8.00hr is just crazy! At least for a living at home College student. I guess.
And you know, the night before the interview I realised I would essentially be like the guys in ‘Clerks’. After spending a night there, it does feel like that.
