It was really cool - we spoke for about an hour - then after she got a runner to show me around - big place (2 sites but only got to see 1, but 6 floors in total) - the runner told me that they only usually show people around on their first day, so taking that as a good sign.

Find out this weekend - fingers crossed.

Still have the poops though - could really have done without that today.....

Well the hard part is over mate....(well the nervous bit to a point LOL)...well done bro, fingers crossed for ya! As for the trots...well dudeall I can say is I have had gastro 6 times this year...comes home with my boys from school...so Im feelin your pain mate. Dunno if you have it there but I SERIOUSLY suggest getting Gastrolyte mate...in light of your previous illness getting dehydrated is NOT cool...plenty of water etc etc...no caff, beer etc. I nearly had renal failure 9 years ago due to dehydration in the tropics and a good dose of the trots...that gastrolyte was just the best...back to normal withing 48 hours...and trust me I was crook mate.

cheers bullet

@ tweetytunes: I'm sure I don't have to tell you for you to know that you'll probably learn alot from working there. Although it will most likely be hard work, long hours and underpaid, it's sure to be a VERY REWARDING experience. I'm jealous but really excited for you. And, we are proud that another member of SM has found their way into the industry. Enjoy the experience mate!

Shhhh don`t jinx it - not got it yet. Thx for kind words though.

Just seen Doc and he said they (poops) were just nerves everything with my health is fine although he as not happy I was going though such a stressful time, but end of the day nothing I can do about that - I still need a job at the end of the day and once I have one stress level will go way down.

Well its defo a good sign ! Should be v proud of yourself, it takes alot of hard work and enthusiasm to get to this point in 3D industries since they expect alot of the core skills to already be there before walking in the door.

We should totally have a Simply Maya soho meet up!
