Wow, time definitely flies. I’m finishing up my 11th year of school and turn 18 this Friday.
UPDATE: Both parties are over! Thanks for the fun!
THE PARTY DETAILS ARE BELOW THIS PARAGRAPH IN CASE YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE FINDING WHEN IT IS!
Yes, I’m going to be an adult! I may be old, but that doesn’t mean I’m too old for Club Penguin. I joined August 2006 when I was 11 years old, which means I’ve been playing for almost seven whole years. That’s quite a long time if you think about it. You may have heard me say that I want to work for Club Penguin when I’m older. This is true. Over the past two or so years I’ve connected with many penguins, helping out, answering questions, and I have come to realise how much I would enjoy a job at Club Penguin. Whether it be responding to player’s emails, talking over new ideas with the team, or whatever else I can offer, I feel like I’d be a nice fit. As you’re probably aware a job at Club Penguin requires you need to be 18. Am I going to apply for the Club Penguin Team this Friday? I wish I could, but unfortunately I can’t because:
- The job requirements for a support representative include completing high school, which I have one more year to go (if only I could do my homeschooling while working for them…)
- Unless I was allowed to work at home I’d have to live in Kelowna where their office is or some other closer office that I’m allowed to work from (if I got hired, that is)
But hey, I’m one step closer to reaching a goal in life! It’d definitely be cool if they made an early exception for me, even if it was a small summer job. ;-) (I know you read my posts, Club Penguin Team! Make it happen! :P Just kidding.)
Anyway, enough about all of that, I figured I would just give you all a quick update on all that. To accommodate different time zones I will be having not one, but two different parties. They will both be on Saturday, June 22nd, a day after my actual birthday. Weekends seem to work best for penguins, so a weekend party it is!
WHAT: Celebrates his 18th birthday
WHEN: Saturday, June 22nd (for most time zones) at 9:00 AM PST and 7:00 PM PST. (note: 7:00 PM PST may be Sunday, June 23rd for your time zone if you are in a continent other than North America or South America!) For quick time zone translations 9:00 AM PST is 12:00 PM (noon) EST and 5:00 PM (17:00) in the United Kingdom. 7:00 PM PST is 10:00 PM EST and 3:00 AM Sunday, June 23rd in the United Kingdom. If you need a time zone conversion ask in the comments below and I will get back to you as soon as I can. For convenience I have also embedded a PST clock below. (I know it says Vancouver – that is because Vancouver falls under the PST time zone)
WHERE: Just in case the server gets full ahead of time (I doubt it but figured I should plan accordingly) I will announce the server the day of the party in this post and a party reminder post. It will be all over the island. We’ll play games, visit igloos, chill, and anything else! Each party will last about an hour long. I will take pictures and maybe film a little. A day or two after the party I’ll post all the pictures. I will also let other penguins submit their pictures and videos they take for the party review post.
I hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it don’t worry! :)
