Moping again

My first week back in the Watford office is over and its like I never left. The office is definitely in its death throes now, as people are leaving every week. I think I will be out of here much sooner than May.

Spent most of the week in courses on Job Hunting and Career Planning (god good, I need that). Do I feel better for it? A little, I think I know what to aim for, but if I'm realistic, I think I'm either going to have to surrender to having to work in London, which I think will kill me travel-wise, or have to suck up and accept I'm going to be in Admin forever (shudder). The thought of having to do interviews again, fills me with horror, especially considering how awful I was at the last one I did. I think my lack of self confidence is smothering me.


To cheer me up:



I wanted to do the other ones, but I've never been further West than Waterford in Ireland, so The US one was out and the Worldwide one looked pathetic, so this one is good. Nabbed from lovesbitca.

Of course, I've passed through more than that, I didn't magically appear in the Highlands! I just thought they didn't really count.

You just have to practice that's all. Get your SO to put you through a few mock-interviews.

And try writing The List of your strengths and skills, to boost your confidence. (I don't just mean professional things, personal ones contribute to your value in the job market.) Pin it up somewhere prominent. Don't give me any of that I don't have any strengths nonsense, either, or I'll have to come over there and bop you over the head a few times and beat it out of you.

Interesting icon.

But I've had loads of practise and I'm still crap! And if you ever met Mad Bob then you'll realise how daft that last suggestion is. I'll look for someone else!

I'm only whinging because it takes me forever to get jobs and I'm under-qualified in a competative market ad too skint to do anything about it. Don't worry, I'm in one of many confidence dips. I get them a lot then manage to rally. Although, I have a crisis everyday about this damn WIP.

LOL Now I just have to meet him.

Did none of my suggestions help?

Sort of. I have managed to focus on some key points. Mostly the problem is that I don't have a lot of faith in my plan. I'm not used to writing this way. I like to get the whole thing done and then I can fix things retroactively. If I did that though, no one would ever see it - I'd take too long!

(ignoring the thing doesn't help either)

very nice-

ive pawned it off as well!

ive been to much of america, but when i was little so dont remember the names all those states, just where they are on the map. same with england.

so like the format!

So I see. I'm waiting for some to get the whole of Wales!


the only reason ive got any of wales is cuz my school's headmaster's mother had a house there; we went a couple times for class trips.

not well travelled!
