Off work tomorrow, then all next week.
how are "y'all"?
Going to ennerdale on Friday for booze and a hillwalk
probably should go in soon tho
feel like I've got a cold coming and I don't think I have any coffee at work. pray for me guys.
Send niki some coffee, you fuck
then i got to work and i had some LEFT
and I really don't know what to wear. Is black a bad colour to wear to an interview?
Good luck, mits!
We interviewed a girl last week, she was all dressed in black and she got the job.
I'll temper that with the fact she did not get the job because she was dressed in black! :)
Good luck M! :)
Just a quick one:
Grey (with like a faint cross style print) pencil skirt, matching jacket, black polo neck and black tights and heels
Black pencil skirt, big wollen black coat, black polo neck, black tights and black shoes
Black pencil skirt, black shirt black jacket etc
navy trouser suit with a navy blouse
last one makes me look at bit like an air hostess.
If the person who interviewed you is asked the following day `what did MITS wear` you want them to be able to answer `I can't remember`.
So nothing that draws attention to itself. Basically.
Thank you for the advice. Beyong nervous.
(especially given that EVERYone gets nervous before interviews) but what you seem a) experienced and b) like you know your shit so... you'll be fine :)
a lot as my confidence has been shot to pieces a bit. Better get on, thanks again.
There was 3 people interviewing me, I had to do a psychometric test and apparently got a top score (surprisingly!). I thought the interview went well, which probably means it didn't go well. I know I talked an awful lot and swore 3 times. ut then the one guy kept saying 'fuck' and stuff. Perhaps they were testing me. Oh god I really want this job.
Them: 'When you can start?'
Thanks for the vote of confidence though people (went with gey pencil skirt/black polo neck/heels/tights/matching grey jacket).
Now on to interview number 2.
Better get up I suppose.
bloody freezing, isn't it? However
+ went for a run this morning
+ got a fairly quiet rest-of-the-week
+ am not ill (unlike about 60% of our team)
In a rather good mood today, not entirely sure why, maybe cos it's a lovely sunny crisp morn.
Bought tickets to see elton John in Vegas yesterday, anyone seen him before?
What happens in Vegas etc
been at least 15 mins late to work every day
still not feeling great. Too much shit to do.
Getting out of bed this morning was a drag. Work is looking busy, but in a kinda exciting way, so I can't complain too much.
Not really needed again until half one.
What's happening on yr week off yo?
Back at work and oddly not feeling too jaded about it. How bad can a 2 day week be?
Oireland was amazing, though yesterday's hangover was not.
Be well, Internet strangers.
not much tbh, just using it up before April
make music, ride bike, play computer games, watch films...
Still got Guinness seeping out of every pore but it was so worth it. Just a brilliant trip all round to be honest, can't wait to go back 🍻
First time in my adult life I've genuinely had trouser options. Feels....boringly grown-up.
Can't be fucked. Dreading it.
Material, colour, style
To be alternated with some sort of blue/black jeans.
perhaps caused by having S&V Ringos for breakast.
UI am enjoying the current revival of both Ringos and those Burton's S&V fish and chips biscuits. I eat about a kilo of those a week.
I've transitioned from C&O to S&V BIG TIME this year. Cannot stop eating these:
Still lashing Tayto Smoky Bacon into me a regular intervals as well.
I was a POnion girl for many years but have transed onto S&V in the last year, mainly because the compsition of our vending machine at work has changed! I guess POnion to S&V isn't that big a jump. My favourites used to be nice & spicy niknaks though, so the jump from that to POnion was quite a leap! Gonna stop saying POnion now ok.
Tayto Jonnie Onion Rings but they'd get stuck in my teeth so I binned 'em off. Wouldn't mind finding another onion-flavoured crisp but options are limited.
because I sent out an email yesterday telling my team (with the managing partner and head of dept copied in, criiiinge) that one of the contacts I had made at a conference yesterday was a director at 'Fart Energy'. F and D next to each other on keyboard, innit. Almost as bad as 'kind retards'. Meh. This is why I don't generally type my own thigns.
Drinking in Notting Hill tonight, anyone got any suggestions for pubs/cheap eats?
would be my suggestion
and the portobello star.
and the Churchill Arms. Can't help with the 'cheap' part though, sadly.
Used to serve a mean pint of Franciskaner. Not sure it's still there though? Been a while.
there are no trains to/from Forest Hill this weekend.
Getting home from the WetherCrawl will be very interesting.
As there are literally no trains from Woking on Sunday. I have never known this to be a thing before.
Uber back to Forest Hill? Probably only costs about £3.
or tube to E+C then bus. LOADS of options tbh, depends on how capable I am.
I find that as the mornings get lighter, I end up waking up with the birds (i.e. about 5ish). I'll usually get back to sleep again but it doesn't come as naturally.
and would love to get up at 5am on a sunny spring morning and go for a walk or something. However, by the early afternoon I'd be flagging.
My dad and I used to go for early morning walks quite a lot when I was younger (PN - quite often we'd get the first ferry from Lymington to Yarmouth and then do a long walk up to the Needles, down to Freshwater Bay and back inland). Maybe I'll start a separate walking thread.
but I've not been awake with it.
Also been waking up every night for the past month at like 2/3am for no reason. Takes me ages to get back to sleep. Sucks.
What with struggling to get to sleep in the first place. Might have to go back on the drugs :(
urgh. So I guess a lot of Netflix and annoying you guys on here. Not ideal at all really.
apart from one person who's leaving
I am ill which equates to highly irritable, apparently.
Helping at beavers later, and V is doing his promise. Exciting evening
Just another day to get through. Boo
when there are perfectly good home-working facilities.
bring me soup and do my work for me pls.
