Dont mind if I do. Although I would prefer a cup of tea if you have any...two sugars...and a splash of milk if you be so kind. 'Chuckle'

How've you guys been? I've noticed a bit of inactivity, as with any thread these days.

Back to unemployment. It sucks but I'm stuck just like millions of others so I'm not alone here. That aside, I've been here on NG for 7 years now and in two weeks time I'll be in Paris.

I'm also unemployed now :/ As of a month ago I've been doing nothing but sitting on my ass all day :D The company i worked for for 6 years, made about 10 people redundant the day they let me go. I'm not really complaining though; I wasn't very happy there and would have eventually left. Atleast this way they gave me 7 thousand euros in redundancy fees :)

Speaking of years on newgrounds. I'm coming up to 9 years in a few months. Funny thing is, I thought it was yesterday when I hit 9 years, cos my sign up date is 11/9/02. Then i remembered it's in American format, so it's the 9th of November -_-

That I don't want. The best I can do at home is making icons and some job searching. Well, the former isn't bad.

Unemployment is long. I've got pay day from my last job coming up on 1st october, and I'm applying for some charity street fundraising job to see me through until I can find something permanent. I hate the instability though.

That aside, I've been here on NG for 7 years now and in two weeks time I'll be in Paris.

Congrats on the 7 years, that's maaaad.

you need to be really proactive. My sister graduated with some sociology/media type job and she was constantly job hunting from june till january, with lots of networking and unpaid work experience. She just pulled a list of top PR companies in london and just emailed all of them etc. Never stopped.

etc.

NEVER GIVE UP NEVER SURRENDER

also go back to uni and get a technology degree cos they're in well short supply these days lol

Yeah I haven't been as proactive as I could have been. Doing part time work takes it out of you a bit, especially when you're doing 11 straight days of 10 hour shifts. Oh and on top of that I've only recently replaced my old shitty broken laptop so that hurt my progress. This weekend will be a "getting my shit together" weekend.

But yeah writing cover letters is literally the most boring thing ever. Cheers for the advice though buddy <3

I've just looked at my posts and I do bellieve that about 90% of my posts for the past year or so have been in the Clubs & Crews forums. I can remember a time when I used to post more in the Art forums. O' how times have changed.

The My Little Pony: Frienship Is Magic thread has been locked by EyeLovePoozy. Did those posting in the thread prove themselves enough to be able to manage a club here in the C&C?

Just doesn't make any sense. It did in the past with the picture spamming, but once that died down and when most of the fad aspect has died down and all that remains are fans it just doesn't make much sense. Anyways I guess it's not that important, I mean with that thread locked and the next episode coming soon, people will start making threads in General again.

Shame they could not have just one thread here in Clubs & Crews, that would not bother you at all or smother you in any way. Good luck with the locking of more and more pony threads.

Heh, I remember a time when my posts were just in Wi/Ht? and C&C. That was in 2007 and I then proceeded to VG forum when it opened. I have hated General forum in the past but I've found myself contributing there a lot since the start of 2010. It's hard to get away from it now, though.

It never died down, that thread was in constant need of moderation and post/picture deletions. There's at least a half dozen users who are currently banned for picture spamming MLP all over the place and some of them have kept at it for months.

Anyways I guess it's not that important, I mean with that thread locked and the next episode coming soon, people will start making threads in General again.

We have a Cartoon Club. Nobody said that MLP discussion is banned on the forums. Feel free to post about it in that thread. It, at least, won't become barren when the fad ends and/or the show gets canceled.
