ho-hum

Sad to say, the shampooing did not get the orange scent completely out of my car. It's slightly gross, but it still smells vaguely of rotting oranges. Especially after it's been sitting out in the sun for a few hours....



In other news, I don't think this is the job for me after all. It's rather too similar to being an agent Making deals and coming up with budgets and giving estimates and all of that. I don't think it's a long-term thing for me. I think I either need to be on-set or further up the food chain in an actual advertising agency, which is more likely. I don't know what I'm doing....



I started looking into immigration to New Zealand again. I was really interested in it when I first went there in 2004, but I knew I needed work experience, so I stayed here for a while. But now that I have a bit of work experience beyond my schooling, I can consider it more thoroughly. But I've still discovered that I think I need experience within New Zealand to qualify properly for Migrant Worker Status. They add up points based on a number of factors, and you have to have a minimum of 100 just to apply. I have 90 at this point, but if I get even a few months of experience in New Zealand, that will boost up to over 160. I'm still trying to figure out if I want to do this or not. If I do, I couldn't leave until at least April 1 because I signed a lease on my apartment. That will give me plenty of time to consider and really think it over as well as save up money for the move and to maybe buy a place when I get there because renting isn't as big there as here. It's a lot to think over and just the plane tickets are really expensive. Worse comes to worse I could go work for a year and then come back. It would be a really good experience. Even if I lived out of a youth hostel at NZ$20 that's only NZ$600/mo which is still only around US$350 or so. And that's for a dorm room. If I get a single, it'd be about double that or more (I can't remember). It might even be less because I could pay a weekly or monthly rate.
