Wah! I need my FFVII icons back. :(

Going for interview with County Council at 11am, so need to leave in about 5 minutes. It got brought forward from Tuesday to today, which is both a little bit inconvenient but also very promising! I am dressed to impress! I washed my hair! I put on proper shoes! I am wearing a necklace!

Didn't get out from the pub last night til 1am; did the entire close pretty much by myself. So freaking tired now. Blah. Must not yawn in interview.

There's been nothing to do at this job for well over a week, but today I got an email attachment from Head Office with about 50 purchase order corrections to GRN. £$&*@%*#! I will feel bad leaving that pile to the returning employee on Monday, but OMG. On my last day? Really? And it's for hires too, so I am completely confuzzelated.

I have been playing with spreadsheets, and - barring any horrific and unforeseen expenses - and so long as I remain gainfully employed at about this amount per month (or higher! Higher is good) - I should be debt-free by next year. Just in time to take out a loan for PGCE. *headdesk*

+ 'Informal' interview on Tuesday for a job paying £10.83 an hour!!

- Hours are 25 per week over 3 days, and likely to decrease to just 2 days.

+ Agency has said they can get me something else to plug the 3 day gap.

- If they're not quick about it, I will be very much stuck in a rut.

+ It's until March 2011.

+ Gives me a few spare days initially to try to get Secondary school experience to support my application for teacher training.

+ It's with the county council.

- It's with the county council.

+ It's in Crook.

On the whole, am very positive. It'll be nice to catch up on sleep, maybe go for a walk (woods and fields at the back of the house). So long as I've got the pub, and 1-2 other jobs, I'm sure I'll manage. :)

ETA: Discovered today I've been the victim of identity fraud. £506 gone to some twat in the south of London on Esso petrol and a McDonald's meal and two fucking rooms at Holiday Inn, Kensington. Fuckers.

Bank has terminated that card, is refunding me the money and issuing a new card for that account. It's just such an inconvenience. I'll have to try to reclaim the £20 stoppage charge they levied for a failed standing order. I've been struggling to see how to make ends meet all this time; I don't need some turd in south London making it harder.

Subject is emo. Apologies. I'm not feeling remotely depressed or anything. Just feel like I'm waiting in limbo for something to happen. It's been another lazy, unproductive day. I'm sure it's actually an unconscious method of self-harm. Bah.


- I need to be here in the north, working consistently, for two years just to pay off my debt (never mind saving for New Zealand). Unless DCL call. Then it'll be two years on a boat.

- New Zealand is definitely my next destination.

- Kings College London appeals more every day, but must resist urge to apply right now. There's cultivating multiple options, and then there's just plain greed.

- Tinies called. Asked me to interview in a fortnight. That could be hopeful. I start again at the pub tomorrow night, but I don't know if they've got hours enough for me. I don't know if I'd even want to work 50 hours there, to be honest, but beggars can't be choosers.

Chores tomorrow: mow lawn, clean kitchen, clean bathroom, tidy my room, charity shop dump, groceries, pick up [livejournal.com profile] rhaegal from the airport. At least I'll be busy!

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life, if you're remotely interested in it. :)

Well, that's a question and a half. I have 2 jobs. I'm not 100% ecstatic in either. At Estate Agents, I'm probably going to be pushed into doing sales in the near future which I am categorically NOT happy about. At Pub, which I quite enjoy as a part time occupation, I think I would rather die if I had to do more than 20 hours a week, or any kitchen shifts, or work the floor on too many quiet nights.

Yes, I am really fussy. I know.

I think there is such a thing as a dream job, in that you dream of that perfect occupation and aim towards it. I highly doubt that, even if you then manage to achieve that job, it is ever anything remotely as perfect as you imagined. The point of life is compromise.

In 5 years' time I would like to be in a different country entirely, doing something completely unrelated to what I'm doing now. In 10 years I would like to have earned my PhD and possibly be working at a university, but maybe not. I am notoriously bad at sticking to a plan.

I would still like to do the working holiday down under (Australia or New Zealand? How to choose?). I also want to work the Disney Cruise Line for a year. And maybe teach English in the Far East or Africa. And I'd love to do volunteer work with animals and/or children.

How could anyone restrict themselves to one job when there are so many opportunities out there?
