Job, etc.

Tonight I need to finish filling out my application form. I've done the basics just now and just need to add postcodes of previous employment and do the main application bit, which I will base on the one I did for my current job and the person specification.

That's the easy bit, really. I'm far better at selling myself on paper than in person. Although my apparent likeability always seems to help people, and I can pretty much blag for England.

Hm. I also did some calculations and it looks like I'll actually end up on less money, but I don't mind doing bar work if I'm closer to home to start with... but this all depends on whether or not I get it, of course. I like bar work, anyway. As long as it's not on Broad Street or anything...

So, yes. Now I should really do some actual work. I didn't have time to squee about the snow this morning and it now appears to have stopped, but I'm getting a lift back from the station so that'll save me waiting around in the cold for the bus.

Back to the minutes, I suppose.

I'll post a dream later under the filter, if I remember.
Random - Absinthe!

Done!

Application form is done and dusted.  I'll send it off via email first thing tomorrow morning.  I probably won't take the job because the money'll be significantly less, it turns out, even though it IS incredibly tempting - that's assuming I even get it, of course - but the interview experience will be useful.  Tina H is coming over tomorrow and she's going to get a bit of a shock to discover everyone's applying for jobs all over the place... ;)  But, you know, when in Emor, do as the Snamor do.  Or something.

I think I've managed to sell my complete lack of experience as more than it actually is, at least, so that's something...

Have made the executive decision to upgrade my computer after I'm paid.  That'll be £200 or thereabouts, hopefully.  Will also get the MP3-player I want (£160 from Dixons, I think), and then pay my mum £150 in April (then there's only £150 left that I owe her of the £600 that she bailed me out with) and then work on getting back in credit again.  She bought a new PC yesterday because hers finally gave up the ghost completely, and now I'm jealous... plus, I'm sick of being scannerless, and want to use my pretty new 17" monitor...  Collapse )

We may also be changing ISPs very soon, so hurrah for being rid of AOSmell.  It looks like Wanadoo is the way forward at the moment.

Other than the above, I've achieved nothing this evening except packing for the weekend, which will be full of Farscape and Friday night comedy.

On that note, I'd better go to bed, before my sillly mood gets any sillier.
