The Struggle!!

0 °C

So I worked out why I felt the urge to travel to the otherside of the world . . . LOL!! To met up with a boy that I never knew, that went to my old high school!!!

Yeah, so i started the weekend, somewhat on a little bit of a high as i did have a semi-lead on a job . . . not so optomistic about that at the moment (although, I am told not to throw the thought away). Had a quite night Friday, and then hit the 'walkabout' on Saturday!! It seems that i may just be over my little 'phobia' . . . had a decent night, a great bad was playing . . . hitting the dancefloor . . all the usual, and then like cinderalla, we had to head home before midnight as we have not yet worked out the night buses, and at this stage, the price of a cab fare home could literally kill us!!

Sunday we headed out to Camden Town to check out the markets there . . . some really cheap options on leather jackets etc, (still cheap is not good enough if you dont have money). Get home, order in (everything is delivered and cheap!!), start eating and then get a phone call from some guy from Nerang HIgh . . . he is about to head out to hear one of his friends play in a band, do we want to come along . . . Sounds like a great idea!! Get there, and still no idea of who he is, but have a good night anyhow!!

So today, my spirits are really starting to get down!! We have been here 2 weeks, and it seems not hint of a job. Though, cant complain too much!! I received a call today and turned down the job (£11 per hour) thinking that I might have this other job lined up (£28 per hour) . . . and then head down to a cafe to do the whole job search thing . . . emailed a few away! Have received another call this arvo for another job!! £23 but only for 2 weeks (starts on thursday) . . thinking well at least its money for a moment, but on the other hand, its bringin me further into the season where work will NOT be available til feb.... what do i do . . . interview is on wednesday, so i say yeah, but me forth and hopefully something will come up in the meantime.

Received a call from yet another agency today, so I have an interview with them tomorrow. THe job i applied for has been filled (or in other words did not exist, but they need some bait to lure people in)! AHHH!!! Just someone give me a job and stop making me perform like some little monkey!!!

So i received another call from another agency about 6 tonight, reception extemely bad, so i have headed to the cafe, where there is better reception! Any it feel very ironical! I always vowed never to be the type of person who will sit there waiting for the phone to ring . . . but since Friday, I have been!!

I really feel as though I was a graduate all over again!! I know i can do the job, but no-one is willing to give me a shot until i have uk experience!! So how do i get that!! Also, as i mentioned i am starting to wilt a little . . . thinking, i am NEVER going to get a job, but when i think about it, I have only been here for 2 weeks now!! Which in the scheme of things is not that long. I just need paitence . . . but please hurry!!
