Got a fuck tonne of work to so, please do NOT disturb.
So, so hungover.
I'll try and keep it down a bit. Just got excited. Hump day and all that.
ZXCVBNM- ZXCVBNM- ZXCVBNM-!
now you've got me doing the zxcvbnm jive all over the office.
how's the work going?
CV for a new job
I remember it as "zxcvbnm, zxcvbnm, New York and Japan".
"IT'S JUST THE BOTTOM ROW OF THE KEYBOARD!!!!!"
Opens at nine so needed it done quick sharp to still make it to work on time. I JUST got there in time to pip the first coffin-dodger to the front of the line. TAKE THAT, YA BAD BITCH
To glare into the door at the staff, as it's already two minutes before they're due to open and they're not open.
which means i am taking a few hours out and about in town
I'm going to pull through aren't I?
Your teeth however.... :(
Was off on holiday yesterday so it would look dead bad.
One guy behind me said to his girlfriend and her friends 'if you don't speak for the next 15 minutes, i'll give you £30' to which I turned around and said 'I'll double that' and he laughed loads and the girls all gave me evil looks AND CARRIED ON TALKING.
Tonight I'm going to see Gone Girl FINALLY.
What was the gig?
It was Glass Animals.
Deadline is midnight on Friday...realised I'm not 100% sure when that is.
Midnight on Friday is 12am Friday.
i.e. get it in on Thursday night, dipshit.
we gonna let it all hang out
Feeling relatively good after a pretty decent nights sleep, seems like a good while since i had one.
Got quite a bit to do today but nothing hugely pressing.
My pal who moved to Berlin sent me these and I got them last night, absolutely phenomenal work:
Gonna Skype her tonight. I miss her <3
My head keeps overheating and I feel sick. Boss isn't in today so going to take it easy and chill with you guys if that's ok.
CBA with seeing doctors.
It's probably just concussion (which you should be careful with anyway) but they could get you properly signed off for the rest of the week?
How did it happen?
If you have a big bang on the head which is still having an impact THREE DAYS LATER - you go see a doctor.
Not sure why this isn't self-evident.
Swear he was lined with lead or something, got quite a big and painful lump.
Thought I'd slept for three solid days and come to work on Saturday. Turns out there are a load of visitors today so everyone parked somewhere else. I haven't moved my car #yolo #sorrynotsorry.
And there are HUNDREDS of them.
So... HUMP DAY!!!
cheer up, goth
Seeing my daughter after work and then going for a few drinks with an old friend.
Will continue to cram bands for this weekend's festival, in between pretending to work and posting devastatingly mediocre threads and replies on here.
Highlights for me currently are Aeroplane Flies High, Alpha Male Tea Party, Bad Grammar, Claw The Thin Ice, The Collected Fictions, Dignan Porch, Hot Shorts, Kontiki Suite, Mimas, Nat Johnson, RadStewart, Remember Remember, Shana Tova, The Spills, Tellison, Thought Forms, Uranium Lake, Woahnows, Wot Gorilla?, IEPI, Sweet Deals on Surgery, Trust Fund
Think there might be some clashes there but it's going to be great.
Say hi if you see me!
I'm a bit torn though as it is good job and would be great experience but I'm not sure if I'm up for the challenge right now. I feel like a easy city centre web gig and this is challenging and in a beautiful but isolated office. Kind of hoping I don't get offered it as logically I should take it but not sure if it is best thing in short term just long.....hmmmm
Other than that hump day is looking good, chilled day and snowboarding tonight in mancs! :)
fucking sinus infection shitting cunt.
Should have taken today off as well really.
Was a bit of a whirlwind really. Lots of high up types gave me a load of good feedback afterwards, so that's nice.
and being met with rapturous applause felt pretty incredible, but that's mainly because I'm very needy.
On my way up to London. Got some meetings and then I'll be out tonight for the first time in a while.
about how much work I have to do. Just said Yes ot a new piece of work, I'm goint o have to clone myself over the coming weeks to get everything done. and I'm posting on DiS because I am still kicking things into the long grass.
I'm just going to check my lottery numbers before I start this month's hard labour.
...it's because i'm a fucking idiot
and realised I thrive on the pressure. My recent yoga holiday was the first time in years I'd actually thought- hmmm, i reckon I could just chuck it all and live on a beach now. And then I came home and I forogt anbout that (although have interviews for similar jobs in hot places coming up. yikes.)
but have a skype conference wih loads of people who don't like me
think i might wear a vest
proper warm-up, proper sore stomach muscles
Would be going to see Gone Girl tonight but the person I was going with cancelled so I'll probably just stay in and watch the apprentice.
everyone and everything is making me more stressed
I aced the assessment but just fell short on the interview :(
I'm the last person to encourage someone to put a positive spin on something BUT when it comes to stuff like this you've got to.
Now you thought you'd blown it completely but it turns out you weren't actually that far off!! I'd take that as a win.
With just a LITTLE more preparation (not much) or whatever it takes then you're there.
Or perhaps you were perfect and the jobs was 2.5 points away from you.
Well done anyway!
It sounds smug, but I'm pleased I did as well as I did. I got down to the last 4 candidates from several dozen, and given my assessment score I doubt I was the worst candidate out of those 4, I just didn't perform well enough in the interview.
At least now I know what I need to do next time.
