I'm falling apart. I'm actually falling apart.
A planned £30 expenditure turned out to be £50, but I'm over worrying about money, whatcha gonna do. Then I shaved last night with a new razor and cut myself to shit which hasn't happened for years, which added to teenage spot breakout means I look like a distended 15-year-old. Then I went to use my shower this morning, which I proudly cleaned last night and felt really good about, and it turns out that layer of grime and limescale was the only thing that stopped the knob which makes water come out of the shower head rather than the taps from not falling down all the time and being useless. I tried to wedge it. NO GOOD. So I couldn't shower and added greasy hair to my hideous mix. I've already got nervous shits thanks to this interview tomorrow, I spoke to my parents last night planning to unload on them and ended up telling them 'I'm fine', and I have two workloads to manage this week including a big job tomorrow I'll probably fuck up because I'll be delayed by this interview.
I'll be fine by the weekend. I'm just being a whiny cunt.
so the shower's not an issue for tomorrow. Which is one issue temporarily solved.
Thinks are looking up already.
Good luck for tomorrow. Let's hope we're both celebrating new jobs soon.
Where is cat_race to see this? This thing will catch on, sean will add a ticker to the top of the social board.
We all have our demons. But not everyone has the opportunity to face them.
All the best for the interview.
turns out that appointing an editor who has no previous experience of working in magazines, publishing or anything of that nature is really really bad! Who would have thought, eh?
and we then went to a meeting room for a conference call that he chairs and
- he didn't bring the telephone number
- i'd issued to minutes of the last meeting 2 hours before because he didn't do it.
- i had to answer many questions he didn't know the answer to
- i took minutes of all comments
- he has been in since 6am this morning and has only had mailonline.co.uk open since i got in at 7am.
fuck off work.
Do you work for Red Alert?
is Red Alert 3 good?
I love hanging about with Tanya and the lads.
but: PARKS & REC SEASON FINALE!!!!!!!
also: New Girl season finale.
also: I have a job application I should probably fill in.
also: someone make me do some revision please
That's all ill say.
So having a bagel and watching episodes of Chewin' the Fat, i probably wont do much work today
i blame chris_is_cool (the thread, they weren't his. CLEARING THIS UP)
got a passport meeting. hate the world. hope they don't tell is to fuck off. i want to go on holiday.
but I've not done what I was meant to do by the END OF APRIL. Ooops. Just because it's been busy and stuff. Oh well, he's quite understanding, hopefully he won't be cross.
But all of those worries you were telling us about yesterday are perfectly manageable. Just be calm and deal with them one by one in a rational manner.
Not only do I not remember getting tickets to it, I don't remember telling my phone (which I've had for 5 days) that I was going
I'd check that you've actually bought a ticket, and not just clicked 'yes, I am attending' on the event page.
I am okay. Spent last night doing more papercutting but its still all practice and I need to find my own style so to speak. Excited for that though. Imma buy myself a nice big book so I can put them all in.
Tonight is gym and an early night as I am in Manc tomorrow for meetings and TEAM BONDING.
This is what I did yesterday. Its only like my 3rd thing I've done lately. https://p.twimg.com/AscL3CzCIAARRtD.jpg
What do you do with the finished results? Hang them up? Or put them in a book or something?
I haven't quite decided yet.
I need to think of my own slogans :D
Do you just use normal paper and a scalpely thing?
If you want some templates, this guy is good http://papercutting.blogspot.co.uk/
just print them out, cut out the shadey bits and the outside bits and then turn it over and voila! fancy.
I'm going to give it a go.cI'm shite at crafty things but I want to try it.
I realise you probably don't have the choice but I'm out in Manc tonight and will be far too busy tomorrow.
I can't even go out anyway as work are stealing us away to a comedy club for the evening to bond. I am really gutted and annoyed I won't see the lovely manchester bunch at all :(
Are you doing Shrigley this weekend? Its so very good.
I am very excited, like the massive D Shrig fanboy I am.
boooo however I have more vitimin c than my desk can ahandle to see if I can shake it before having to cancel date night tonight.
Kind of shook me up a bit, as a lot of the accusations my boss was making in the dream are actually true. Going to try to be on good behaviour for a while (she says, while posting on DiS...)
Cloud Nothings tonight, whoop.
Just a short trip, Sat - Mon. I was really glad the weather forecast was wrong - it was predicting heavy rain and thunderstorms, but there wasn't a drop. I'd like to go back sometime to spend a bit longer there, because I hardly saw the city - lying on the beach with a book was just too tempting.
And that's another problem ticked off the list. At least until it's 6 days from now and you haven't taken a shit since this morning.
Best of luck for the interview tomorrow. I'm sure you're well prepared, so game face on and ace it.
but i think it's due to tiredness and it not being friday.
HURRY UP WEEKEND.
but MY GOD i have every reason to right now.
i'm absolutely terrified.
Just make sure you have sufficiently badass intro music. Like Mudvayne.
Apart from having to go to Retford for an industrial hazards meeting later.
Getting my guitar rewired today, the rhythm circuit is being ripped out because it's shite. One less switch to worry about.
I want another jazzmaster as a backup for this one, should probably sell a couple of my others to fund it..
Weds is the new Fri in my part-time working week, and what with the bank hol Mon, it's been a pretty good reintroduction to work.
We put Shropshire. Horrific scenes.
making a final decision on Monday.
GOOD GOD THE TENSION.
WhatEVER you do - don't expect the call on Monday. There'll be 95% chance they'll call you on Tuesday.
So... don't spend all of Monday worrying if they haven't called, for they'll doubtless call you the next day.
Someone just called me weird for saying that I dont trust people's food because I haven't seen their kitchens... thinking about it I also now hope they dont think is me trying to woo them by hinting at me being invited over to theirs to see their 'kitchen'
