Job Spot

Hey!

You might have thought my dream job would be working at an Apple retail store. You couldn’t be more right.

It’s true. I’ve applied many times for a role at my local Apple store but to no avail. It seems they don’t want know-it-alls just yet.

Finally, a job offer was posted at my college which I quickly put my name down for. It’s for a local security person during local events. It’s a “flexitime” job which means you can work at times that suit you.

I’m not entirely sure what the role is about because it was a short and snappy ad. I could do with any job at this point! Id also like to refrain from mentioning the organisations name for now.

Nevertheless, A few of my classmates and myself put our names down for this job on Wednesday and on Friday I received a letter inviting me to an initial meeting where things such as available times, what’s expected of me and what the role is about will be discussed.

I’m so excited for this role and I really hope I can get it! It will be really nice to be doing something in my spare time!
The meeting will take place at noon on the 28th of March 🙂

I hope you guys will wish me luck!
I will make a follow up post by the weekend 🙂

Olympic Torch Relay

Well, the Olympics are just two days away from starting and yet the touch relay continues. It is day 68 of 70 of the relay.

Today the torch made its way though my town, Brent. We had received newspapers with the torch route and it would pass at the bottom of my road at about 10:30AM today. Of course, we went to see the torch! It’s not often a special torch passes your street!

It was a bit late, arriving at about 10:45AM but we saw it all the same. The street was packed with people and it was really nice to see our road full of colour! Seemed like digital cameras are history as everyone had a mobile phone to capture the event. Including me. 

When the torch itself arrived, people waved and cheered at the torchbearer! The torch was a spectacular sight. I’ve never seen such excitement for something like this. I really don’t know how to explain the experience other than it was awesome to watch the torchbearer running through the street with an Olympic torch 😆

Did you know: There will be 8,000 torches for 8,000 torchbearers? The flame will be passed on from one to the other.

I should note that the location I am filming/photographing is Wembley Triangle, where the torch made it’s way to Wembley Stadium afterwards.

I recorded the event on my iPhone and It’s currently uploading to YouTube so for now I will leave you with these pictures from the video. Click to enlarge. 

This is something I will never forget.
