ETA: this wonderful, amazing and brilliant birthday banner by the equally wonderful, amazing and brilliant milly_gal


November, 2015 and I'll be travelling all the way from little ol' Perth, Western Australia to the grand ol' US of A to attend not 1 but 2 SPN cons. I'll be meeting Jared and Jensen for panels and photos and autos (OH MY!!!!!) and the rest of the amazing cast (and hopefully some crew as well), hanging out with hundreds of other fans and generally having the time of my life.

First up will be Denver Nov 5-9 and then LA the following weekend, Nov 13-15. I'm also visiting Las Vegas for the first time and hope to squeeze in a quick trip to the Grand Canyon.

So I'll be using this masterpost to keep up to date with Con and travel related things and general squeeing which I'm sure will only get louder the closer I get to flying out.

Fic Masterpost

Well, I've written and posted 2 fics in the Triad 'verse (and outlining/writing more) and I'm doing my first spn_j2_bigbang so I suppose a fic Masterpost will come in handy and inspire me to fill it. Pairings and warnings in multi-part fics will be updated as I add new parts.

Life is frelling fantastic right now!!!!

Been a great week so far. Only 2 more shifts at the petrol station on Thursday arvo/evening and Saturday morning and then I'm outta there for ever!!!!!

Worked Tuesday and Wednesday driving and I am loving it so much. Can't wait til next week when I'll begin couriering full-time. I feel so much calmer and more relaxed not having to deal with A**hole lazy co-workers and rude, arrogant customers that treat me like shit. "Give me smokes, give me coffee" with barely a please or thank you for serving them.

Chanelle, the girl in the courier office who handles most of the job allocations via the PDA units, actually acknowledges my login with a good morning and smiley emoticon unlike dickhead servo boss who would always scurry straight down to his office without even looking at or speaking to any of the staff. Good riddance to the bloody lot of them. The only one I will miss working with is Terese in the cafe. She's always been really nice and friendly and very hard working and she agrees that the rest are a bunch of lazy bastards, so we always got on really well.

Getting the company signage put on my vehicle tomorrow which means I can sleep in. Yay!!! It's hard getting out of bed at 6.30am when it's only 5C but at least I can stay at home til I'm allocated my first job which is usually by 7.30am. Been nice and busy, usually doing either multiple pick/ups & deliveries or getting a new pick up as soon as I've delivered my previous job. So busy in fact that I barely have time to check twitter or FB. Was going to take a book with me (I'm currently reading Book 2 of Game of Thrones) but I doubt I'll have time to even open it between jobs. It's great being able to just listen to the radio and my favourite cds as I drive around. Maybe I should get the audio books of GoT to listen to in the car. Been finishing at around 4pm which means I can take Sam out for an hour-long walk and run in the local dog park before it gets too dark and cold. We both need the exercise and there are some very friendly owners I've been getting to know. Plus Sam is making doggie friends too which is great to see.

Will need to get some work done on the car over next couple of weeks. The poor thing has been rather neglected these last few years and really needs some TLC, so new tyres and CV joints are top of the list when I get paid next week. Also due is the car licence registration and my driver's licence renewal, all of which I can now claim as tax deductions next year.

Freedom is so close I can taste it......

Yesterday, I gave verbal notice to my manager of my intent to leave, unsure of what his reaction would be. There wasn't one. He just said, "put it in writing on my desk," and walked away. No "Sorry to see you go" or "did you want to talk about it?" He didn't even ask if I had another job lined up and what it was. That pretty much convinced me I'd made to right decision to resign and move on. He just didn't give a fuck.

Last's night 4pm-midnight shift went pretty well. It helped that we ran out of the cheapest grade of fuel at 9pm, so was a lot quieter than normal.

Today was one of the best and least stressful I've had in recent months. Spent the day on the road with a driver, Steven, from the courier company I'm starting with full-time at the start of August. He showed me how to use the PDA data unit and we did about 12 jobs, I think, which he said was a fairly average day. Asked him heaps of questions and he was happy to give me advice and a few tips. With what he told me today's jobs earned him, I shouldn't have any problems earning double what I currently make. The longest we waited for a job was probably about 15 mins, means we were on the go for the whole day with usually a couple of jobs at a time and did about 300kms.

About 5pm, he dropped me off at the base and I had a quick chat with my new boss, Tristan who was really friendly and very welcoming. He asked if I could start full-time driving tomorrow. When I explained I'd had to give 2 weeks notice and work a few late afternoon/evening shifts, he asked if I would be interested in driving on my free days or wait to finish up. I didn't hesitate to say, I'll start ASAP which will be on Friday as I have BP shifts on Wednesday and Thursday. I'm also doing 3 days driving next week so won't have a gap between pays when I finish at BP.

Feels so great to actually be wanted and appreciated as an employee, something that I haven't felt at BP in a very long time. And I haven't even properly started there yet!!!! :-)

Got my uniforms today and will be issued my PDA on Friday. Can't remember when I've looked forward to going to work so much. Even the remaining BP shifts aren't filling me with dread as they did prior to this week.

Countdown to freedom!!!

Big changes this week. Rang up about an add in the Saturday paper from a courier company needing drivers. Pretty much secured the position during my inquiry phone call on Monday. HR guy (Graeme) I was speaking to said the add did specify previous experience in the transport industry, asked me how much I had and when I replied 20 years, he responded with "Oh, is that all?" in a very light-hearted tone and I was rather positive that the job was mine.

New home, new inspirations

Well, the move went relatively smoothly. I was an hour late for work because the movers turned up 2 1/2 hours late. Spent next two days transporting the dozens of boxes full of books, dvds and other smaller household items. Would have cost me an extra hundred dollars (and time I didn't have to spare) to have movers take them which I just couldn't afford. Took me 2 days to clean the old place. Waiting to hear from the real estate agent to finalise the refund of my bond.

Been slowly working on getting the new place unpacked. Tv/entertainment system was first priority and except for an issue with my indoor antenna and reception, that all went well. Unpacked all my dvd's and sorted them into their shelving units and the house started feeling and looking like my home. Kitchen has been sorted, plenty of cupboard and bench space.

Next up is the two bedrooms, one mine -- so all my clothes are still in boxes and suitcases. The other one has my bookcases and desktop computer which is set up. Still waiting for internet to get connected. Hopefully next Monday at the latest. Am missing Games of Thrones and Outlander and of course reading my LJ f*list and what's happening with y'all. And I can't wait to sink my teeth into the awesome spn_j2_bigbang that are being posted.

Have my phone to check Facebook, Twitter and email but not a huge data allowance so can't spend too much time online.

Took Sam for our first walk around the neighbourhood this morning and found a massive dog exercise area about 15 mins walk away. It's right next to some bushland which was lovely to stroll through. There are big steep hills on the way home which are going to be great cardio workouts for us. Was breathless after getting home, but am sure the daily walks will improve both mine and Sam's fitness. And the view from the top over the city with the Darling Ranges in the background was breathtaking.

Saw some really beautiful homes, so many wonderful and varied designs and styles, each house totally different to the ones next door. There's quite a few than I want to photograph on future walks as they'll be great inspiration for fics. A couple next to a small park at the end of my street are so gorgeous I want to write fics just so I can include them.
