As some of you may or may not know, I am doing a Masters Degree in Computer Science at Queens University, Belfast.

As some of you may or may not know, my course involves a year of professional experience.

So basically we have to keep applying to companies and sitting interviews until we get accepted somewhere.

I sat my first ever interview yesterday. They said they would get back to me in 2 - 3 weeks. I received an email today (almost exactly 24 hours after the interview actually), offering me the job.

I am a very happy camper.

My elbows get rather chuffed sometimes (I suffer from dry skin) and a little lotion always does the trick. Good luck.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate each and every one of the messages :-)

I was very surprised, as it was my first serious job interview. I'm also relieved that I wont have to do any more of them for a while!

Catgoddess:

I suppose it depends on the Uni, but I dont see any reason why you should need a maths A-Level to study computer science. I was worried that I wouldnt do well because I dont have an A-Level in maths and I'm coping fine withoout it. Not having a level maths should not hold you back at all.

Congratulations David - glad to see all the hard work paying off now.

As a side note - my nephew has been accepted by Colchester Institute to study a BA(Hons)in Music. He also has an acceptance from Kingston University and on Monday I am taking him to Leeds Uni for his interview.

Not everyone in my family is stupid!

Cheers Fatty and Bob, and congrats to Bob's nephew! (he's the drummer isnt he Bob?)

TM:

I changed my name to 'John Deacon' to wind someone up and then changed it back to my 'normal' name...I had totally forgotten that I had been using 'DeaconGone' for the last few months! But I think I'll just stick with DeaconJohn now...if thats alright with you of course ;-)
