I'm back online!!! It took time, money, sweat, frustration, cables, wireless stuff, an angry dad and lots of phonecalls, but I have my own internetconnection again! I am SO happy :)

In further news.... My first test as a sales & marketing officer was today, making sales-calls. Basically the script is like this: "Hi, we sent you information, did you get it? Yes? Did you read it? Yes? Do you wanna visit our hotel? Yes? Cool! Thanks!"

I'm already shitting my pants :D

I also found out I don't know my e-penpal at ALL! I scored 30% on a test about her. Sorry Gina! I'll beat myself with a wooden board and a rusty nail for it.

Well, more for me to explore and (most of all) update. Windows is screaming at me that I have to install 6 critical updates. Good to be back *lol*
