Hullo hullo. It’s been over a month since my last post, but still that’s not too bad considering my track record in recent years! Where to start – I’ve just been through my journal to check on my last post and I didn’t realise that my tweets are posted so often! So – sorry about that. :| Although I guess not really that sorry as I don’t intend to stop. Maybe I’ll see if I can change the settings to weekly or something though, idk.

Things I have been up to lately, hm, hmm. Thinking about it I have quite a lot to say, but I have no idea in what order so this may be a little bit disjointed… think I will just write and then perhaps tidy it up afterwards!

cut for holy massive post batman )

And now I think that’s me out. Finally.
I think maybe I should cut this whole post...? According to word it’s over 2700 words long. :| Oops. :|

And yeah... sorry, I definitely didn't follow through on that 'tidy up after' thing. :|

sharing is caring
for one week, recommend/share:

day one: a song
day two: a picture
day three: a book/ebook/fanfic
day four: a site
day five: a youtube clip
day six: a quote
day seven: whatever tickles your fancy

~ i always say that i couldn't possibly choose a favourite song, that there are too many amazing songs that i love and adore to play favourites. and while this is sort of true, it's also sort of true that here with me by dido is my favourite song above all the others.

also, i got a temp job working as admin in a doctor's surgery place thinger. there was a bit of a mix-up between the temp agency and me and the surgery so today was a bit of a disaster, but i am looking forward to monday.

it is only £6/hour, but for 9-5 that'll add up okay, and it's only for 4-6weeks, which is a pain 'cause it means i'll have to sort out going back on jsa when it's done, but i don't mind because it will also be something more on my cv. plus i have to have particular training for it, so once i have that training i will be suddenly a more attractive employee than someone who doesn't. so yay! the worry and awkwardness of today has really tired me out. i feel ill and achey and tired and just drained, really. thank god i started on a friday so i have the weekend to recover.

in exciting news, the hettster (aka [personal profile] yakyak/[livejournal.com profile] boho) is coming over tomorrow for awesomeness. she is bringing me a 'spare' touchscreen qwerty phone she has lying around, because apparently she is rich or something, because my phone is broken like a thing that dun't work proper no more. and we are gon chillax and chat and maybe snuggle under quilts and watch films. so that's nice. :)

and then on sunday i'ma wash my hair and do noooothing else. :D

I feel so hopeless today. I never thought my life would be like this.

this post is basically just because i can.

my friends bought me a gorgeous little glass teacup and saucer for my birthday. i have refrained from using it until now because it is so fragile and i am afraid of breaking it. it was on display on a corner unit in my living room, and it was just taunting me, so i christened it yesterday afternoon:


this is from a set of twining's classics that i bought... i am so glad i bought this pack of classics because i had never tasted lady grey before but now i know that it is just gorgeous. this, though, is ceylon, and it too is quite tasty, although i did put a bit too much sugar in. this was taken yesterday afternoon when i was having a cup of tea while reading a book.

the book, obviously, is feet of clay by terry pratchett. i have read it many times before; the Watch ones are my favourites because i adore Sam Vimes with a passion. this is a shiny brand new copy, though; i spent £25 that i don't have on brand new Watch books the other day because when i asked my parents to bring the terry pratchett books up, my dad sneakily kept the ones that belonged to him, and sadly this was most of the Watch ones. So I've started rereading the Watch ones in order; i'm just finishing Jingo now, and moving onto the Fifth Elephant this evening. The Fifth Elephant is probably my favourite after Night Watch. <3



aaand this is a teapigs lemongrass tea temple, taken about 10 minutes ago. along with the pretty cup, the girls bought me two packets of tea temples from teapigs - english breakfast, and lemongrass. i thought i'd have this one now because its quite late, and this is caffeine-free, and its also meant to aid with digestion, which i suppose is always good. i put a teaspoon of honey in it, because even though i will gladly turn down a dessert in favour of a sandwich, i enjoy my tea sweet. and this was just lovely - just like lemsip but without the prerequisite of feeling manky and ill. i'd definitely recommend it.

i may post some more teas because i have a large collection that need drinking and i have a shiny glass teacup and a camera. so yes. :D

in other news i am ridiculously excited about a brand new rpg my friends and i have set up. it seems to already have had a really positive impact on friendships which long since became strained and/or distant, and i just. well, it's really making me very happy at the moment. hopefully it will continue to do so, although it is early days yet.


~
also, i am ridiculously stressed about money. I think I have less than £600 in my bank account; my rent (£338) comes out next saturday and i am still jobless and have a pittance income from my benefits.

i got a phone call today from a job i applied for at the DWP. it is for an executive assistant so i doubt i will get it because that sounds quite big, but i have been shortlisted to go and take the numeracy and literacy tests that they require followed by an interview. the tests are next saturday (1st aug), and from what i can tell i presume that the interview will be the following week. i am pretty nervous really. it would pay me well enough to be able to save up for my postgraduate, which i desperately want to do. and, like i said, i am just terrified about my finances at the moment; i don't have enough coming in to cover outgoings really so a job would be fantastic please. however, judging by my parents' stagnant 'careers' in the dwp, it is entirely possible or even likely that it will be a horrible job that i will hate and stuff.

but i suppose it is also possible that i might enjoy it and be brilliant at it and it will be great etc.

i think a lot of the problem i have is that i honestly don't feel that i am qualified to do anything. why would anyone give me a job? particularly one with a responsible sounding name like 'executive assistant', lol. i am spectacularly useless. i hope i can do it.

to make financial matters worse, aaron and zara-louise are coming back tomorrow and we are going out for a meal for zara's birthday. while obviously i am happy to have them, and really happy that they had such a good time when they stayed a few weeks ago that they wanted to come back so soon - the restaurant they have booked (babycream on the albert dock) is pretty expensive, and then i think they want to go out afterwards so that is another worry. just, argh. i hate spending money on going out drinking, just because it is such a waste. i don't enjoy going out and to add insult to injury it generally costs a small fortune.

and i'm going to have to shave my legs for the occassion.
