Shoot For The Moon

Ricky Gervais Quote - Comedian JokeImage by Humor Blog via Flickr
Sunday afternoon has become a bonding exercise, everyone congregates at my parents and between mouthfuls of food there are discussions about the latest news and developments. I have a broad range of subjects; university, the children being abroad, my 'other half' (as described by someone at her work earlier) will head to Zante soon and I even managed to lose a job before even starting! Facebook has assisted with preparations for university, the social network has provided an insight into what to expect and the opportunities available. I have applied for work through freshers week and I also applied for an internship at XFM Manchester. XFM is a brand of commercial radio stations focused on alternative music, primarily indie pop, and owned by Global Radio in the United Kingdom. I mentioned this to my brother, he actively follows Ricky Gervais and brought to my attention that Gervais worked as an events manager for the University of London Union (ULU), until he took a similar job as "head of speech" at Xfm London. I'm now focusing on emulating the achievements of Ricky Gervais, a realistic ambition? Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you will land among the stars.
