One Month Later!

July 29, 2007

So yep! I’ve been in Brisbane for a month now and i have to say things are going pretty good at the moment. I’m enjoying work quite majorly and it hardly ever feels like work. Just the big thing is that i’m feeling a tad lonely because I don’t know anyone yet. It’s not as if i can go out to a bar, well i guess i could but it’s pretty lame/sad for a single guy to go out to a bar on his own. So there’s really only one solution to this problem. Stay home, buy a bottle of scotch, and plug in the console.

I’m missing home quite a bit, not to mention the bestest people on the planet (you know who you chumpos are!). Also slightly tired of cooking food and stuffs.

Work is pretty awesome. It never ever feels like actual work. I’m enjoying it heaps and things are good! Still haven’t managed to find a good place to live yet, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before I find a good place at an affordable price.

As a single guy living alone, sometimes going shopping can be a pretty funny experience. Sometimes I’d look at the stuff in my trolley and then look at other peoples trolley and it seems like I’m not eating very healthily. I was also thinking of shopping items that single guys shouldn’t ever buy at the same time. For example, a single guy should not ever, EVER buy hand lotion with tissues or toilet paper. Ever. That would be like someone going to a hardware store buying some rope, a shovel and a bag of lye.

Anyway I’m running out of things to say so like, I’ll write more later I guess!

A week later and bam!

July 1, 2007

So it’s been a little bit over a week I’ve been in Brisbane for. Mmmm engrish good. So far, I don’t think what the time period between 6pm and 2:30am could be called work at this point. You might say “But Fizzle, you be all trippin’ cos yo’ work is dope. Yo’ play gamez all night!” At this point I agree with you, purely because what I’ve been doing for the last week has been just playing games. No ones told me how to actually do anything yet, and what I can say is that I’ve played and will be working on Starwars, Hellboy and the new Spyro.

But thats what is really getting to me. At the risk of sounding like a complete whiny jerk, I’ll say this, I feel as though I’m not actually doing anything. As in I’m getting paid to do nothing. I just wish someone could show me the process because I can’t imagine it to be that difficult to get your head around it.

The funny thing is that it took only two days for someone to come up to me and ask where I wanted to go to from QA. And then after that, one after another they came up to me to ask where I wanted to branch off too. It’s like they were trying to scope out any potential threats. I know they probably meant well, but I have to say, it did feel like they were testing the waters.

I feel horrendously lonely at the moment, just the fact that i don’t know anyone here is just depressing. The internet is whats keeping me sane at the moment. I mean, I could go out and have a drink but there’s two problems; a) drinking costs money, and I want to save as much as I can at this time and b) who goes to a bar to drink alone? I haven’t found a bar that is your generic tv style bars where a single solitary guy sits at the bar and drinks shots of whisky and talks to the bartender.

Anyway it’s like 1:00 in the morning and I have to wake up early to book some more rental viewings, so I’m signing off for now. Updates as they happen.
