Personal time...

Hello everyone!
Time for a little personal entry
So you don't think my life is just about shopping, W♥C and lenses hah

Last night I went for a work induction for my new job
It's in a local Cinema and the uniform especially is oh so un-glamorous
But heck, I know people who have been looking for work for years
To find and be accepted for a job in 3 weeks of looking, I can't say no to that!

I learnt a lot, like catching someone trying to film the film earns me £1,000
Popcorn is made and then stored for 3 days before being used, eww lol
Only managers have access to the Pick n mix store room (drat!)
I get to see films before they are released, and to see them for free
In 3 months time I can get a card allowing me to bring a friend for free
the card also get's me 40% off consessions OM NOM
Oh and cash is delivered to departments via Futurama-esqe tubes!!

But also that there's not real emergency exits for wheelchair users
and they they are to be left in a fire proof corridoor within the building during an alarm
It just seems to go against EVERY human right ever!

I've another talk tonight which I think might be taking more than 4 hours
The cinema is open so late, which is good because I don't like getting up early haha

Working a full time job is nerve wracking for me, I've only ever worked part time
and I also haven't worked for a few years since my job at Gamestation
Scary customer times ahoy!!! (●´△`)ノ
I hope it won't effect my blogging too much, but I'm sure when I first start it will
Until I can get used to it
But also wearing a uniform a lot will make me want to push my own style
Whenever I can wear my own clothes, so we can all look foward to that
and I'm also allowed to wear full makeup, yessss ♪

and to all those shocked my W♥C haul has reached 4 parts
...it's not even finished yet! haha

Congratulations on getting a job! I just applied to job last night, I need to be serious about it too ><

Working at a movie theater is extremely boring/tiring, trust me I know because I worked at one during High School haha! I say boring/tiring because there are really low times with no customers, then they all come at once and you get overloaded haha!

But I have to say, the way your theater makes and stores popcorn for 3 days is disgusting... Theaters here make it fresh, and I'm really sure by 3 days it's close to being completely stale DX And how rude they are not to give you free concessions and friend's ticket off the bat. I don't think I could have lasted all that time at a theater unless I gots ma soda for free haha!

The free movies before they come out is awesome. I work at a movie rental store and we get to do that too. Definately makes the job worth it.

Yay working girl!! You guys get an award for catching people filming!? That's pretty awesome and I never thought of that as part of something theaters have to do! Interesting XD
