TODAY IS MY FRIDAY!!!!
Who's the lot of us?
What if I have a heart attack? I am quite unfit.
Decide my life please.
a) accept the offer of a higher grade job, of which I'm essentially doing about 80% of already?
The negatives: addition of line-management responsibilities for a nice but completely useless guy who is practically unmanageable (but also pretty much unsackable); fixed term contract (although one that will probably get renewed); lose the variety that I enjoy in my current job
b) keep doing the job I'm doing
The negatives: perceived lack of ambition; jobs in the next grade up come about VERY rarely here; somebody else will be doing a job that I was pretty much doing beforehand for more £££
that 'perceived lack of ambition' is actually well founded.
but I'm pretty well paid anyway (with annual increments for the next 3 years at least) and really happy with my 'work-life balance' at the moment.
can you tell I really want eveyone to tell me (b)? You bunch of high-flying businessman.
= can't fuck about on DiS all day
you're not getting rid of me THAT easily.
because I think 'unambitious' is maybe the worst insult you could ever level at me and I would take gross offence to it because, well, I guess I have a bit of a (big) ego. If you're not worried about people thinking that, then go for (b). Your little one is still quite little, and you'll never get those eating dinner together/ bathtimes/ bedtime story times back again, so if (a) will jeopardise that stuff, it's maybe not worth it. You can climb the ladder later in life once family is older.
any chance you can take it like a secondment? And then go back to your old job if you decide to at renewal?
based on your posts.
Your negatives re: job b) all seem perfectly undevastating.
Life is too short to do a job you don't want to when you're happy where you are
specifically because you currently don't really want to.
You're coasting and you should be ashamed. Do (a) to punish yourself.
I'm at hotelier tomorrow. actually I have a spare ticket now if you fancy it...
will let you know if they don't want it
i'd link it but then you'd all know where i lay my head to rest
so that your gaff can't be pinpointed.
why else would you be going up and down a boring street
Forgot my breakfast.
Was up til midnight making katchoris and samosas.
Need to make chana masala later.
Then will be getting in bed and crashing out with a takeaway pizza
Been working wonders
for exactly the same reason (I think)
It's almost june ffs
Not a fan of this inclement weather.
but the sun is out and i had a big declutter of my flat last night so it feels much bigger, might paint the kitchen this weekend, might not.
got a wine tasting networking thing tonight
shitbox. I hate when people come in to work sick. I appreciate the dedication, and am aware I do it myself sometimes, but I don't want to catch your lurg, thanks. :(
Someone needs to look after the Tumblr and Myspace accounts aswell!
and she's great. Making me a coffee as we speak.
she just offered because she feels bad for giving me her cold.
(Also I make it better, obviously)
and then email her the link location?
Normally just send her a link to this, tbh:
Played football last night and played well too. Really enjoyable game. Went for a pint afterwards and managed to get the snug in one of the best pubs in town. In there for the evening talking utter crap and it was great.
Going to clear my work backlog today so everything's alright when I get back from my holidays. Practicing and then heading to a gig later.
Holidays eh? Where's you headed?
I'm experiencing lineup-induced panic here. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas.
That line up is just ridiculous is t it?
I get to see Fucked Up, The Juan Maclean, Patti Smith, Thee Oh Sees and Viet Cong twice each as well. I'm freaking out!
What do I do now?
Just 9 hours of hell to get through first...
Been off ill the past couple of days. I bet you didn't notice did you? Bastards, the lot of you.
Today I'm going to make a coffee and look intimidated by the amount of work I have to do. Then work out how much I can feasibly get away with not doing.
Your day sounds very similar to mine.
I haven't even reached pt.2 of the plan yet. Still just being intimidated.
Gonna buy a wheelbarrow at lunch. Hotelier tomorrow though woop woop.
Meeting with other peoples beforehand but will be sure to pop over and say hi to the DiS contingent at the borderline if/when I see you guys - you'll all be wearing official DiS merch ya?
Although I keep going outside without a coat and it's pretty chilly under the shadow of FEAR CITY so I suppose it stands to reason.
In other news my office has a new coffee machine that does fresh coffees and it can do lattes and cappucinos and stuff so I guess now I have a reason to come in.
been up since 4 o'clock
I need to start drinking and smoking again
More coffee please. You can't have my coffee. Please don't take my coffee
I woke up just past 9 without an alarm on or anything, pretty weird
Persuaded him to go to the v nice local Italian for tea instead of usual Pizza Hut WOOP
Just two days until half term WOOP
I'm about to go and run a department meeting.
I need coffee but the staff room is FAR AWAY.
-/+ played football in a hailstorm last night, was fun but I had a total shiter of a game
- flatmate had a go at me for drinking a beer leftover from Norway day party, was literally the only thing he said to me yesterday cuz he walked out after, prick.
- it's the ex's birthday on Friday and I got a ping of sadness about probably not being there.
- feel a bit shit generally, think I've wilfully let the health(ier) lifestyle slip a bit and it's effecting me
+ after spending all day yesterday feeling uninspired and fed up, I wrote a new song before I went to sleep last night, which I finished when I woke up this morning, which is nice.
+ considering applying for a new job which is similar to my current in pay and role but with some new stuff added and in a venue I like and more convenient travel-wise, just trying to convince myself if it's worth it. My current job is fine but it doesn't really have any scope and can be dull at times, however I don't always mind that because it's facilitating my music and personal endeavours without really ever getting in the way (in fact the term holidays even encourage it) so I worry that although change could be very good it will mean less time for music which is what I actually want to be doing... any advise?
So scrubbing my room
Thurston Moore's show last night was wicked cool; also Steve Shelley was at the merch stand beforehand and I couldn't think of anything groundbreaking to say.
Weeks off are cool
and I literally mean non fucking stop. Absolute stream of rammel coming out her fat mouth and UNBEARABLE giigles half-hehehe'way th-hhehehehehe-rough ev-hehehee-ery wo-hehehehe-rd.
Going to stab her.

Might have one when I get home too. I say do it.

Haven't found the perfect one yet but I'm getting incredible customer service which is pretty rare
Massively frustrating to find a suit where the trousers were OMG AMAZING but the jacket was nah
Oh well, gonna keep looking
i want to sit in the sun with a beer
really don't want to die

(not really yer gonna die looking forward to hearing about it x)
plz make sure someone nice gets my Hotelier ticket
I assume my boyfriend will be too traumatised to attend, so there will be two
but you'll feel good after and be glad you did it
I'd like you to become mod in my place plz
but it's all good stuff.
I'm wearing my new hot pink dress today with my cropped black tux, which has actually made invincible and terrifying and everybody is doing as they're told. I hope I get out of work in time for the rangers game though :/
very flobby chokelaugh in office
Where was this meant to be?
Not that bothered about the football.
and how he eats his ice cream like a champ
one of the all time best emojis.
It's my third most used emoji and quite possibly my favourite.
