Shower Thinking.

30 May

I have come to the conclusion that the best blog posts come from within showers.
Seriously. Don’t you just find yourself thinking up the best and most thoughtful ideas when you are in the shower? I do that every single time so I’m thinking, next time I want to write a good meaningful post I’ll shower first.

Anyway, right now I’m in New Plymouth and it is cold deluxe. It’s freezing. Luckily I found my slippers at the back of my closet. It’s funny what I managed to find in there over the weekend. I’m lugging more junk back to Hamilton with me tomorrow. But I’m not staying; I’ll be heading up to Auckland after work because on Tuesday I’m going to be attending the channel launch of TVNZ Heartland! Very exciting stuff, I can’t wait. I love the fact that I’m back in the TV game. Now I’m settled in Hamilton again, I’ll be able to focus harder than ever.

That reminds me, I am not a fun of the bus. I took the Bus to New Plymouth last Friday and I certainly  did not enjoy the experience! I had a woman behind me chewing gum right into my ear, the bus was tiny (more of a van), my legs were burning with some weird heat source and when that went, I was freezing because the Air Con was stuck on above my seat; it was dreadful. But I got here in the end so phew.

Now recently I went though some shit in Hamilton – as a result I am no longer living in Rototuna so you’ll need to ask me for the new address. I’ve also got a second blog that I write everything on – it’s not public, and you’ll never see it. But I’m saying this because it’s a very handy way to deal with stress and just pathetic dramas. I write down everything on that blog and I feel much better afterwards – in the future, i’ll be able to go back though it and just laugh. I actually think my life this year would make a brilliant movie. I may use it for a storyline one day, so it’s already copyrighted to me peoples. Speaking of, I’m hoping to get Pure Modesty 2 filmed sometime before August, which will be very cool because all of the content I had for “Milliwood” has been transfered to Pure Modesty so I’m very happy to keep that project going.

All in all, life is cold and dull but I’m still alive and kicking and it’s great =)

My Jobs.

29 May

I just want to say how much I LOVE my jobs!
If you don’t already know, here are my current positions:
1. National Distribution Union: Union Delegate (Progressive Enterprises)
2. Countdown Hamilton Central: Lotto Supervisor + Checkout Operator
3. New Plymouth Police: CBD Camera Operator

I love working at the Police station because it’s always fun to chill out when it’s not busy and then when something goes down the adrenaline rush is fantastic; tracking down someone in the city, calling for free units in the CBD, communicating between the bars/police etc it’s just so awesome. Even though it’s only once a month or so, it’s worth coming back to NP for.
I love working with the union as union delegate too – it’s such a cool responsibility and I love helping out people and standing up for their rights in the workplace. It’s made me realise how lucky we are in New Zealand, and how much work the union really does for YOU. This role is so flexable it’s just perfect =D
I love working with LOTTO at Countdown, doing all the required courses (TOPS), attending events (Roadshows) and again, that responsibility of handling money and cashing up is a big plus for me. Checkouts isn’t my favourite occupation I admit but I enjoy everything else that goes with it!

So there we go. I’m buzzing about just having worked at the NP Police – even though it was quiet, it was great to be back. In case you haven’t noticed, I am back in New Plymouth at the moment. I came back for my Police Shift and then on Monday I will be heading to auckland for a workshop and TVNZ event, so I am very excited about that too!

Life is good.

Wow it’s been a long time since I posted here.
That’s because I’ve been going though SO many dramas – honestly I could become very rich if I turned them into a movie!
I’m still living in Hamilton, but in a different place and I love it! I’m enjoying life up here much more now and school is starting to pick up again which is great. I’m now Union Delegate for Countdown Hamilton which is exciting I love that job!

Next week I will be going to Auckland for the launch of TVNZ Heartland – a new local channel only avaliable on the SKY platform. I’m looking forward to visiting TVNZ again and meeting with people from the industry, it’s been awhile!
I don’t really have much to blog about at the moment, which is odd.
