How is everyone this morning?
Down in the dumps? This might help
and i've got to conduct interviews for a new caseworker.
anyone got any good interview questions?
Any ideas how to sort it out?
oh well, 9 hours to go...
yet more proof that being hungover, sat at a desk in a job that is DESTROYING YOUR FUCKING BRAIN is nothing to aspire to.
again - nothing to aspire to :)
(i rarely drink on a schoolnight these days)
my mood today is Absolute Beginners by David Bowie ie a kind of soaring melancholy
I woke up at 1am with a massive migraine which made me feel very queezy but somehow I managed to get back to sleep and gave myself a cheeky extra 30 minutes to lay in. woo.
I've been given a key to a van that the people next door had delivered yesterday as no one was in. I *could* go and give it to them but I'm going to wait for someone to come to me because I'm lazy and I want to talk to someone as I'm so very lonely.
after a week of swollen ear and glands and a virus....so much so I think I'll go see CircaSurvive at the cockpit tonight. anyone going?
That's just brilliant! :))
I'm meeting my mum in a while in town then I've got a meeting with the director of a big PR company; he's already told me he has no vacancies but wants to see me for coffee anyway as he liked my CV. Hopefully he'll make one of his clients give me a job :)
I have to hang around town for two hours after my mum has gone home until my meeting though. Boo.
Oh my word I love Big Jake!
Also almost walked out of my job yesterday. I actually cannot work here anymore. I probably cry once a week (at home) because I hate it this much.
I have cried every night when I got home from work as this is just depressing me. I've told my manager today that I can't do this for much longer so I don't know whats going to happen to me.....
Treats me worse than the 18yr old admin assistant. I get spoken to like I am a child and yesterday due to tube issues I was 5min late. 5min, and she had a go at me in front of the entire office (including the girl I manage) basically making me feel like I was always late and I should follow her example (please also note this was the first time I have been late in over a year)
She's probably just trying to show off infront of everyone so they think she's important (when she's probably not).
Everyone in my office has been sacked or made redundant apart from me. Our head office has about 100 people working in it but in this office there is just me. I've done it for 2 days now and its so lonely and depressing that I keep crying all the time. Also they're not letting me book any holidays so I can't even have time off to interview for other jobs :'(
That's awful about your work too. Surely they have to get someone else in to allow you some leave time? Surely that isn't legal for them to do that?
they don't know yet. I don't think they thought it through when making the last girl redundant. Oh well!
But as of this weekend it will be installed and I will have more time to look properly.
What happens if you get ill or something?
Erm, I'm not allowed to be ill as far as i know. No one in the company can do my job and I did have one sick day since starting here (about 6 months ago) and I got called in because there was important stuff that needed going.
They deduct money from us anyway so I don't want to call in sick as its like £65 down the drain.
Why do places of work feel the need to treat people worse than animals?
You're going otofind a fab new job in London town, and be much MUCH happier than you've been for a long time. That's what :) Why not start looking now so you have something up your sleeve for if/when it goes tits up at your current place?
Though this weekend our internet will be installed - I am so excited as now I can properly start looking for a new job.
Good morning. I am not sleeping properly just now and feel exhausted today, again, like a zombie. Urgh.
Today I am party planning for our office launch party in November, and I have to appoint an event management company and so I will be interviewing this afternoon at the new site. I had better get good freebies and inducements. Tonight I'm at the beauticians, and then I will probably be going to bed early and trying to get rid of this sleep malaise. I think it's possibly TB.
The last one I used to sort out an incentive day out I got cowshed spa vouchers.
What do you do msM? If you're serious about finding another job in the city, I can keep my ear to the ground for you :)
But don't get fooled by the name - they do everything, from sports event to Fashion week, to Movie Premiers and awards shows. They're really good. And they give you Cowshed vouchers :)
I was orginally a Copywriter but for the last two years I've worked as a Project Manager for an Investment company.
I'm meeting Penguins events and CL events today, but want to interview a good selection before deciding.
I'll keep my eyes and ears open for you job-wise :)
And thank you! Honestly I have set myself a goal to be out by next month.
coming to dinner with me, then yes, you're probably going to bed early.
saftey wink ;-)
Exciting, I had forgotten that we had dinner out tonight :D
I will take lots of my new berocca with guarana and be wide awake, I promise :)
Zombies don't feel exhaustion. They feel nothing but an UNRELENTING DESIRE TO CONSUME THE WARM, GAMEY FLESH OF THE LIVING.
I cerainly know how poor old Lazarus felt when that meddling jesus got him out of his crypt.
Surely Lazarus was in heaven. Why drag him out of heaven, J-man? Pretty thoughtless, imo.
I'M MOVING HOUSE TODAY
I'm on a bus going to see my potential landlord. Only i'm late and he probably won't want me on his property anymore :( I have to take a coach back to london too later and I hate buses. Thank god for mobile internet
I hate snakes.
Fucked up the science round.
Won a cuddly toy bushbaby on the raffle for the second fucking year in succession. 'kin quiz.
I was let down by my teammates. I can't be expected to know EVERYTHING.
Also really starting to get an irrational hatred of any mention of the shipping forecast in quizzes.
I just remember laughing at it when they say dogger.
It was before they fired the AMAZING old presenter for swearing on air. Pah!
You can be on my quiz team, ONLY FOR THE SHIPPING FORECAST ROUND.
I had a dream that i met Flying Lotus last night, he was a cool guy.
feeling a bit miserable, watching the papal visit on bbc1. my mummy just brought me a bagel <3
I might get up and call some temping agencies or something. Is it better to phone or actually go to their office?
someone answer my question please?
then that is a massive + and you should go to their office. Take a generic CV with you.
my jobs pretty great though, thanks for asking.
I will now never have a tooth in the lower left jaw second molar position. :(
One of the tens of things wrong with today.
Exciting. Had my car for 7 years now. Brilliant though it is, need to get rid and upgrade to something bigger and smoother. Probably won't happen though because I'm such a disorganised dickhead.
