    Finished studies, waiting for sponsor to find me a job. If everything goes as planned I'll be back in UK within two years. I am currently a neet in some unknown country in SEA.

    If I get into the department I want, they will send me to London office for a few years after I have done a year in the main office here. Problem is, they can't be bothered with my application process and asked me to wait for the next hiring cycle :wtf:

    I am still bonded to work for them, so right now I am stuck in limbo (at least until January when the next hiring cycle begins).

    Depends when people are free and when trains are available. Not to mention which pubs are open when. I'm entirely flexible in terms of timing. I'm going out to Notts on the 13th of December to get trollied, so any time after that is good for me.

    Still getting paid? Or living off of zero income until they decide to do something?

    I'll check train times. Also 23rd is pay day for me, so that's extra good to wake up to.

    EDIT: Works out nicely, can get to Kings CX on the 4PM train saturday, and then return from Kings CX on the 4PM train Sunday. So a Saturday night out.

    I can claim allowance for making me wait, but its quite little. Still better than nothing, and there is absolutely nothing to do here.

    When everything gets finalized and you've sorted people and places to stay I'll book my tickets, and arrange my monies.

    Why would anyone even want to invade Korea? What do they have that's worth taking? You might kill a bunch of e-sports stars for SCII and LoL, but besides that and the cheap monitor industry, I think most people would prefer to leave Korea to destroy itself.
    Australia however, now that's a place worth invading. All them minerals. Africa too. Nobody will miss the South African government.

    Wait what. Where's the disclaimer that says that is a joke?

    Also any news on inhabiting London? If not I'll book my travelodge(cheaper than premiere inn) room and train tickets today, assuming everything is still on the go-ahead.

    Travelodge it - at least that way we can hire hookers and snort coke off their stomachs while still being discreet. As for the drinking, Unfortunately I think i smell so I havent been able to rope that many people into coming. It might just be 3 or 4 of us lol, totally up to you if you still wanna do it.

    That's fine by me. Kings Cross or Islington Travelodge? I literally know nothing about London besides where McDonalds is and Waterstones, so you may have to meet me at Kings Cross train station and escort to me whichever Travelodge you recommend.

    EDIT: Train tickets booked, arrive at Kings Cross on Saturday at 17:15, and leave sunday at 16:30

    Travelodge in Euston is closer to where we're going out for drinks so i recommend that one - generally speaking though travelodges in that area arent that great, bring your own soap or showergel etc etc.

    At least it's a double room. Also I'll have 4 hours to kill between checkout time and the train home.

    Typical Central London hotel costs. I got a Travelodge in Worcester for less than half that price.
     
    Bo$$ says thanks.
