good morning! I'm up early to get a flight.
why are you awake?
The cat woke me up, meowing bastard. Just drinking some tea, got an interview at ***** ******** hopefully city centre rents and online gaming wont force them out of business before then.
thanks. good luck with the interview. DONT BLOW IT.
i think i have an interview even though i thought i had the job and what kind of boriiiiiiiing temporary job even has two interviews maybe they're telling me they've realised i'm just TOO shit and they're dumping me in person oh no
should've applied to ***** ********.
Have a cherry lambo before you go in, you'll be reet x
Go to sleep with the TV on. Especially in flats.
Also in flats.
(or rather, I forgot I had set two alarms (staggered) and left one in my room while I was showering, My neighbours must hate me.)
Can't wait to do nothing after work. Housemates want us all to chip in for a PS3 for GTA V. I don't see what could go wrong here.
Idiot colleagues keep saying "It's sooooo cold; it's like winter out there."
i ate a pie last night that said 'hiya' on top of it
that sounds like a goood pie, was it a good pie?
it said hello to me while i was eating it
I still have no voice. Still coughing up loads of shit.
Nothing planned tonight. I want to do something FUN!
do you know nothing?
That's been ages love, you might want to see a doctor. have you got robitussin cough cyrup? it's ace at getting up all the crap in your lungs.
more my throat. i'll be reet.
Your throat doesn't really produce phlegm on its own. I'm going to stop saying phlegm now.
There's two carrier bags of cooking apples in the staff room up for grabs.
It's about the only good thing about summer coming to an end- crumble time. I might do an apple and bramble crumble, mmmm.
Had to stay at work until 7:15 last night cause I was told I had to finish certain things before I left. Pissed off.
Gonna go see my mum and considering dying my hair brown.
But I'm ill and poor :(
Hopefully your mum will look after you and fill you full of soup.
I fell over on the way to work and now have a fuck off hole in my tights.
Other than that it's a really nice Autumn day today.
A lovely gentleman helped me up. Nice to see someone with manners in London...instead of pissing themselves laughing at me (he was probably laughing inside).
I have lots of spare hosiery in my work drawer, but I'm a bit far from soho :(
Yea, I'm fine, my flatmate is in Texas for two weeks and it were great at first but now I'm starting to go a bit mental ie checking all rooms when I get home to make sure no-one is going to pounce on me.
Are you okay?
I, like you, am not very good at being in the house alone at night as I have been for the last two nights (I've only been silly like this since I was robbed by the thieving robdogs). Last night I kept the hall light on (which is prbably why I had nightmares.) Do your doors and windows lock well and do you lock them? If so, you have nothing to fear *repeats matra* (It doesn't stop it being scary thoguh, does it?)
You were mugged? What? Doors and windows, yes I lock them and when I'm in the shower I keep looking at the door to see if someone's watching! Too many Hitchcock films I fear...
I had MENTAL dreams last night again, really vivid and I can't discern today what was dream and what wasn't. I wasn't even drinking last night (apart from one and a half overpriced glasses of wine.)
I'm really through with this week already. So tired.
That boxing thing I went to last night was terrifying but I'm glad I showed face as I will probably pick up some work from the gangster community now. Yaaaay.
I sometimes eat cheese to try and trigger mental dreams but it never works. coffee seems to do the trick though.
one flight down, two to go.
I had no idea you were gone for so long! Big drinks when you get back (not on the street maybe).
Safe rest of flight. Have some beers and a snooze.
at the SECC and said the crowd were among some of the scariest individuals they'd come across, just loads of cunts desperate to start fights with anyone
one of my mates went for a piss and said at one point two coked-up meat-heads started openly pointing and laughing at the size of his cock :D
That's hilarious about your friend's cock. i can't believe he's telling peope though!
where are you watching the fitba tonight?
he's got a massive cock so wasn't too worried about it, just the absolute boldness of the patrons took him by surprise i think
i'm not sure yet, it's absolutely mental in work this week as it's freshers week so not sure when i'll get finished, where you heading?
I'm torn between going west to watch it with friends
or lying facedown on a beanbag with my face in a pizza and watching it at home.
I'll see how I feel when this day is over.
currently status, sick as a dog, probably should have just stayed home last night rather than going to the gym.
My last day in the office this week today for various reasons. doing something tomorrow and then have a funeral on Friday.
And my car fixed. Something to do with oil.
with immediate effect. Things got a bit grizzly and it was best for both of us if I went. They're paying me 6 weeks plus any outstanding holiday. Immediately after I find out I got the job I went for last week.
I'M ON TOP OF THE WORLD.
Well done :)
I was struggling to go to work without having a mild panic attack so I'm really relieved. Now I've got 3 weeks of being a free man. Today I'm going to Worthing...
I want something like that to happen to me, goddammit.
but they really mishandled a few things relating to mental health issues I have and I didn't feel comfortable working there anymore. Hey, I'm not complaining (anymore).
with salad, olives and shit. same as monday/tuesday. not bored yet
Off to Cornwall for a weeks holiday and see friends and fam on Friday. As a result I'm finishing a report thats been a thorn in my side and backing up data to head office. Feelin good so it might have to be a mega sandwich and soup for lunch.
its going well. I reckon I'm about ready to get into a relationship. whatever that means
hence the attraction. so there.
(I am delicately asking, IS YOUR ALANMcGHEEWEEMAN WORKING AGAIN.)
gonna see the doc, I reckon. get some blueys, innit
Might make her some ghocchi.
Found a(nother) job I'd really like to apply for. Must resist buying a new PS3 and GTA V until I've applied for it.
Just discovered you can order Chovi Allioli online, which is wonderful news.
30 minutes late for work this morning and thought I'd missed a super important meeting that started at 9am but it's tomorrow instead. Secretly wish I'd missed it.
My, this is a boring post. I'm leaving the morning thread now. Bye!
In today's "Thanks, Japan!" news, my university decided I'm too fat for it (no, really,, I don't meet their "standards", and I have to go to a medical consultation next week, where I may be subjected to, amongst other things, a blood test). Fuck the fuck off.
Someone get me home please :-(
You couldn't really make it up, huh?
The good news is I've spent the past four hours crying in my room thanks to the complete humiliation, and now I'm going to go for a walk and buy some junk food because I can't think of any other way to feel better. So when they weight me next week I'll probably be even heavier, #fuckthesystem etc
This fucking country. Seriously.
and as PO says down there I'm sure in the Who are You thread you looked slim/normal weight.
But either way what baring does that have on you being at uni? Is it an image thing? What happens if they say you are too heavy for them?
Also if you're having a horrible time can you not just leave? and if not what are the issues your having there? (apart from that one^)
But I don't really see how that matters. I'm not sufficiently overweight to be putting my health at any particular risk, and I have no difficulties whatsoever in, say, walking to classes, which should be their only real concern.
My weight is just absolutely none of their business. If they want to tell me by BMI is over the normal range and suggest I lose weight, then fine whatever, I'll roll my eyes a bit and whatever. But making me come in for all kinds of tests is just ridiculous. My university absolutely does not need to know my body fat percentage, nor does it need to analyse my blood. I came here to study, not be kicked back in to crippling anxiety and depression.
It's not like they can throw me out or anything (I assume, anyhow), but it seems like they can do 'monitoring' in addition to 'comprehensive tests'. Anyhow, there's no way they're taking my blood, so I guess I'll see what'll happen next week.
No, I can't leave. Year abroad is a compulsory part of my degree. Just generally, there are a ridiculous number of costs that it's impossible for anyone without wealthy parents to pay, and they've taken bureaucracy to such an insane level that even I can't tolerate it.
THe university in england has a duty of care towards you and you should not be subjected to this. It is a breach of your human rights and you need to phone them NOW and tell them what is going on so that they can intervene on your behalf without you suffering any repercussions. Come on, you are super clever, you must know what to do here? Call them now. Hell, PM me the details and I'll bloody well call them!
I don't like causing trouble for people though. I don't know, it feels like at my age I really should be sorting things out by myself (by which I mean crying for a few hours and the ranting on an internet forum, whilst doing nothing about the actual issue, obviously).
I don't think the year abroad coordinator would be very sympathetic though. She'd probably just tell me to put up with it.
you're not at an age where you should be dealing with this in a certain way and how you're feeling is totally normal and ok. you've moved to japan for christs sake. can't even imagine how daunting that would be, whatever your confidence levels or age. if the year abroad co-ordinator is rubbish, you might have a study abroad unit or something more central. or do you have someone in charge of welfare at college level who you could speak to, they might be a bit more empathetic? sorry if these are all things you've considered. sorry you're not having a great time :(
Take it to the person who is responsible for your wellbeing at your college back home (when I was at oxford we called these your 'moral tutor'.) They will be well aware that this is not right. In our country, unless you have broken the law in a certain way or have been sectioned, you can't make somebody have blood taken or subject them to medical processes against their will. I know you're in Japan now, but the university in england still has an obligatoin to protect your wellbeing by our standards. I hope you get an answer. If there's anything I can do to help then please pM me and I'll do what I can (i can be quite bossy when i put my mind to it.)
My tutor said that she'd ask the faculty if they can sort it out for me and then get back to me tomorrow, so hopefully I won't even have to do anything.
I've calmed down a bit now at least. made a couple of impulsive purchases on Amazon to make myself feel better (might regret that one tomorrow but yeah).
9I am looking at the massive beanbag in the corner of my office that is a very fine example of that. Oh well).
Hope they get something sorted for you. I bet you feel better now you've taken some action, but sometimes it's also good just to have a bit of a cry and a silent rage about these things (so long as you eventually spring into action). Good luck x
(and I'm sure I've seen pics of you where you look like a pretty, slim/ normal girl). Surely they can't force you to go to the medical?
Are you talking to your folks about how you feel? Is anybody going out to visit you?
these attitudes have to be challenged & crushed at each turn. rooting for ya.
it lasted til about half 11, then I got bored of nonsense happening and now I'm just waiting for it to be 12 so I can have lunch.
better than being bored and just waiting for lunch at about 7:45 though I guess?
I must have a fever or something.
they sent me into one of the archive rooms and got me to sort everything in alphabetical order. never again.
not feeling great.
and people turned around to see what i was laughing at, and someone commented 'he's just on drowned in sound AS USUAL'
struggling to be bothered to go :((
Got a 32GB memory stick so I can play GTA later.
Going to see Smith Westerns later.
I've still never had a kfc. i really want one.
Exciting, in this context, is bad.
Watched any good films yet?
watched that tom cruise sci fi one, pish. and something else that I can't even remember.
and four episodes of house of cards which is good, but I've seen it already.
