#70593 The Green NRG Dragon is definitely one of my favourites now.
That might be an interesting question to pose: "How many dragons of all themes do you have?"... I'm off to the "Collecting" area...
Argh, #70748 is also only £23 on Amazon. Summon willpower. Summon willpower. Will simply switch off my mobile and internet connection at home before I order all Lego dragons current and past tonight...
trying not to see all the offers that i can not buy as i am out of funds.
and some how i need to save money for one of my other loves. "pokemon."
with Sun and Moon set to come out in November.
there is never enough money.
Well, when you literally have no money you can't buy anything, so having no money is good.... I think.
Now I definitely need a break from buying so that I can Build....... :)
"that's cool, where'd you get it? "
" er...toys r us "
really craving for a good deal on samurai x cave chaos #70596
Looking at all the nice promo sets coming up for the remaining of the year:
#40220 London Bus
#40222 Holiday Countdown Calendar
#30474 Reindeer (possibly)
Double VIP points in October
Status phase 2:
Planning on how to spread out my purchases.
Status Phase 3:
Coming up with the excuses to tell my wife why DHL is again delivering a big box...
Easier to just fess up. She knows I'm am addict...
"My hand slipped and I totally by accident got on the [email protected] site, clicked through all these menus and entered my credit card data; and now it's absolutely impossible to still cancel this order!"
If by "Disney area" you mean Orlando and next to Universal Studios, then I'm also going to a conference there next week.
Lots of CMF at regular price, nearly a case each of S15 and S16. My fingertips weren't happy, but the boxes hadn't been picked through.
2 #41111 Party Train 30% off.
Both stores had a lot of 1st wave Nexo ultimates 30% off. Clay and Aaron might be worth it, but I'm hoping for further discounts, especially with other stuff to buy.
i have spiderman now, yay!
I just followed the standard info and structure as many books and sites suggest. I also got help from several people I know and the career department at uni on helping me construct my CV and cover letter.
Thanks everyone for the response. I guess I have keep trying elsewhere, I'm sure I will never be as great as I would've been with LEGO.
Getting a perfect CV/cover letter is such an arcane art. It's also frustrating because they rarely read the whole thing thing. I've been looking for 3 or so months and only last week did my uni's careers department tell me I'd been doing both my CVs and cover letters wrong despite the fact that I was following their advice originally!
Though if I've learnt anything in my (albeit relatively brief) time job hunting, is that you can't beat yourself up too much if you don't get your dream career immediately. There seems to be a lot of pressure to get strait into your dream job from uni, but if you can get a few years of experience in a different job, even if it seems unrelated, that'll help your chances immensely. And I know "a few years" sounds a lot of time to someone strait out of uni (ie, me :-P), but it's not all that much time in the long run. So yeah. Keep looking. :-)
I will take a few more pictures hopefully tomorrow.
Last night when buying CMFs, the cashier said '$3.99 for this!?'. 'Well, they do have special components, figures are a few dollars of the cost of a set anyway', and pack feeling. [In general, it can be hard to explain hobby stuff to outsiders, so I avoid details.] I got 14 S16's and 13 scanned. When I pointed this out, she seemed Ok with it, maybe she felt sorry for me.
Anyway, as for my LEGO status, my brother and I got The Knight's Code: A Training Guide in the mail from Amazon yesterday. Fun book! Perhaps not quite as uproariously funny as The Book of Monsters, but still packed with great illustrations and amusing, in-character writing. I love this style of guide book that's written as if it were by the actual characters in the story, and it'd be great if LEGO made books like this for their other themes like Ninjago and Elves (Parts of the Ninjago "Dark Island Trilogy" graphic novels come close, specifically the illustrated excerpts from Sensei Wu's journal, but a whole book in that style would be pretty nifty).
As suggested above, also, I know for certain that the companies I have worked for would never employ someone who was `over qualified`. They are worried that you will just keep looking for another more interesting job whilst employed by them and inevitably once you find that job, they will then have to recruit someone all over again. May be take it as a compliment that you are too qualified (?).
Its also difficult to guess what each company is thinking - like you said, you could have an amazing CV etc etc but don`t get interviewed or the job. Sometimes getting a job is just luck - being in the right place at the right time. Often word of mouth and networks of people (of course you have to get a first job to be able to have this in the first place).
Good luck with everything!
Congrats @BrickDancer - good things are on their way up for you.
