still feel like shit. fuck all of yas.
Don't worry Sean, I'm sure the site will sort itself out sooner or later.
(I reckon it's Jordan innit.)
embarrassed that my first DiS check of the day is on the fucking way to work. Can't even wait until I get there FFS. Awful state of affairs tbh
in case someone sees me
I'm becoming increasingly shameless. Even done a few bus snapchats.
start as you mean to go on and all that
tomorrow: lego movie and walking the dog
sunday: clean the house and go and see a concert in stirling
Good lad. PotUSA tonight, then its a meagre weekend as Ive lost my card and have £13 to get me to an interview this afternoon, bus fare home, drinks, and food until my card arrives.
Hope yesterday's prep pays off :)
Hopefully that 5-10 minutes will make all the difference :D
because your message gets lost in amongst too much info. Just have three things that you wnat to get across. and one good example of when you showed leadership and one good example of when you worked as pasrt of a team. Maybe one example of when you had to show initiative. AND THAT COVERS VERY JOB INTERVIEW FOR ANY DISCIPLINE, EVER. Good luck J!
no plans this weekend cept Spoons tomorrow. just as well really innit.
gonna cook something nice for dinner tonight I reckon.
oh the taxidermy thing at the Horniman last night was ace. more of the same please.
I got out of work at 6:50 :( By the time we would have got there, it would have been 8ish :( BOO.
I saw Dans s AWESOME.
only went and passed, didn't I? means I now have a shiny Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning. to celebrate, I am eating a muffin.
turned out the muffin had a gooey centre too. day just gets better and better.
looking forward to powering through the day, sheffield tomorrow and absolutely nowt on sunday
To go to the pub with different colleagues who I actually speak to. Poor form? Give a shit.
Waiting to hear back about a possible interview today. Interesting times.
then fly to Rome this evening for a long weekend in the eternal city. Found out yesterday I've been given a payrise. Felt bad because it wasn't what I'd hoped for, then got told by various people that it was actually fairly generous. Then I felt bad for bring greedy and not knowing how shit works. Anyway, what should have been a good thing became a bit tainted. But it's still a good thing I guess. But I still need a new job. Now where's my coffee?
same thing happened to me when I got this job. I hit up a couple friends already at this level, told them the salary I'd been offered like "they're hugely lowballing me here right?"
Nope, turns out it was a pretty decent amount. Sigh. Did manage to argue them up a grand though.
I think my expectations were raised when I applied for another internal role and he told me, unofficially, why that salary would be, which was a figure I latched onto. The issue is, he was probably bullshitting, hadn't signed it off, and the person who got it isn't being paid that. Dunno. Might raise it. Should probably just step up the job applications.
Is to have an external job offer in hand at a higher salary. be V careful though- you must make it look like you were approached re the role and your arm twisted to intrview for it. If it looks like you've bene out scouting for toher things, your loyalty will be brought into queston. (well, that's how it works in CF anyway, might be different in journo/publishing world.)
Bosses like to feel that their employees are in demand, but not that they're whoring it about town, desperately trying to get picked up.
Should probably pack.
I hope you come across lots of weird vending machines.
Go to Junkadelic. Best Mexican food I've ever had. And the Ghibli museum.
but apparently you have to book the tickets 2 months in advance. I didn't even book my flights two months in advance.
spoons tomorrow and seeing castles in camden on sunday. busy. also no more sofa bed! a room!
Where you gonna be living?
the other participant of this house i'm in has moved out so i'm upgraded from crashing a sofa bed to actually having a room. still angel. still temporary. paying rent though now. maybe i'll just stay there.
A really good place to be I reckon. I'd stay there if I were you.
I woke up with a big scratch on my head. no idea where it came from.
Hope you're ok dude.
but thank you all the same
I feel like I've sold my soul a bit. Also I have to move house between now and 1pm and I'm not even at home and also haven't even packed anything :/
dead exciting :) x
Hardly slept (again) because of so much work and a sore neck.
I pioneered SWEET AND SALTY PORRIDGE this morning. I can confirm it's fucking briliant. I ate it, in the sun, at my little dining table on the roof garden. With a cup of kenco millicano (which I think is the only coffee i truly like). I felt like- but for the a red swimsuit- I shuld be ina s pecial K ad. A pigeon flew over and sat next to me and eyed me curiously (to be fair, I was in a hoodie and a g-string, had olive oil and cling film on my hair and sudacreme on my nose and chin (it dries up oily bits that look like they might be about to go plukey). So I was quite a sight to behold. I feel like we connected.
I feel absolutely smashing about the propsect of closing my deal later and it then being the weekend.
Weekend- tonight: drink one glass champagne with client then go home to catch up on a week's worth of sleep and hopefully obviate impending spottiness.
Tomorrow- sister and I do a touch-up paint job of mucky fingerprints on white walls in the flat and spruce it up ready for survey on Monday. Dinner with my Hunni at night.
Sunday- hot date cont....
I love Friday and I have a bag of malteser bunnies.
I think I'm a bit high on lack of zzzzzzs.
the cling film and sudacreme I'm sure would boost sales )
makes your head hot which means the olive oil goes into your hair. Instead of looking like this- http://cdn.nadyana.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/summer_frizzy_hair_care_tips.jpg
it is now this- http://cdn2.www.babble.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/long-blonde-straight-flouncy-hair-back.jpg
It's teh best and cheapest hair treatment ever! (i think the sudacreme has made my face OILIER though. GRRR.)
to the internet to wanre anyone trying th o live oil hair treatment- Any old oilve oil will do, but you MUST shampoo your hair throughly and rinse, and then repeat, unless you want to look like you work in a chippy without a hairnet.
so jealous of your swank pad
after a hard, wet winter, so trust me, it's really not all that swanky! (I had to go back in the shower to wash my green bum cheeks).
Doing not a lot tonight. Probably just chillin' in my crib.
Stag do tomorrow. Meeting at 1pm for food in Birmingham. Back to the apartment, put my stuff in. few drinks, Wine tasting at 4pm, then food, then real ale pubs until the end. No mankini shenanigans or forced 'fun' just the way I like it.
Sunday, get train, watch football, not a lot else.
and was pretty wasted by the time I got in. I have a hazy memory of posting that some shitty shopped album covers were Emotionally Affecting or something. Don't drink and post people
HI LUCIEN. Is it too early for whisky? My client has just arrived bearing two boxes of very nice malt for all of the staff who have had to work late this week. Very Good Day.
Conference call sapping my will to live. I'm sore everywhere from climbing walls last night, and I misread my outlook agenda so had to rush out without breakfast after getting up too late. Coffee and banana is a balanced diet right?
Got paid and trying to continue my 'I jam econo' routine. Must not spend too much, need to get myself out of my financial spiral into the red.... Really want to buy tickets/flights/vinyl though... I can treat myself to the Actress discobox right, I deserve that at least huh? Or should I get some new casual trainers? FREEDOM OF CHOICE. Or should I save it all for the tattoo/new computer/summer etc
Tonight probably going to go see a film, then colleage's houseparty in Crimée. Carnival theme. Going as a carny.
Tomorrow, Grand Budapest at an awesome cinema with a girl I like spending time with but who I think likes me more than that (I think this is the first time I have ever friendzoned someone), maybe go see Legowelt live for free afterwards. Or hang out with a colombian girl.
Sunday, GOING TO A MOTHERFUCKING CAT CAFE
Saw some old work friends last night. Made a deal to help them on a joint art project they want to do. Also went that new exhib @ Manc art gallery. Meh. Don't pay the £6. All the good stuff is dotted around the rest of the galleries.
Off to see traams tonight. They sound FUN.
knitting needles? I just need one for a secret project. Tried 'Binging' it but seems they only come in pairs.
My grandmas got hundreds
London Buddhist Centre?
or there soul dies when there apart
THREE times. I feel fucking invincible.
Also, fry up at work - YES.
no idea how long it's going to take. At their fucking mercy.
Looks like I'm working from home today .
someone just came up to ask me something so I tried to alt tab out of dis and too slowly realised that I have nothing open related to work at all.
Just been up to the boardroom. IT IS SIGNING. I'm kind of in shock as I hotught I'd be here all night getting it over the line. I'm not quite sure what to do with myself now. Suggestions? Toally braindead now.
My part of the transaction is about to sign in about 5 minutes. Can't stop tapping my fingers on the desk.
woo woo woo
didn't sleep half - other half has a stupid cough that is keeping me up all night
Not a lot as planned for the weekend apart from the film festival closing party on sun night.
I might go buy some clothes.
which is likely to be packed
Saturday, spending a little time cleaning the house + meeting a friend from school + pub crawl
