Now I just have to hang around until the end of term, attend the leaver's party, and drink myself into Birmingham.
I emailed Chris Kingsley at Rebellion today, just to check that I'm still on track to go work for them in September (for the entire duration of my gap year). Hopefully there'll be no problems (it's just that it all felt a bit informal, so I wanted to check), and perhaps now that we're a bit closer to the start date, he might have a better idea of what I'd be working on (we last spoke in March).
Plus, my brother's got a positive response from Blackwells, the book store, about his working there in the summer - after being told by Waterstones (his first choice) that they don't take on workies, it was nice to make progress with Blackwells. He's been asked to go and talk to the person who runs their Childrens Books section, to see what sort of thing he could do. The dates probably don't match up, but if he works there at any time while I'm working at Rebellion, we could end up going in on the bus together in the morning.
