I HATE cv writing.
I DO NOT like having to re-write several times.
I ESPECIALLY dislike removing all soul and energy from it, the bits that make it mine.

Thank you, all of you, for your help. You'll be pleased to know I don't intend to ask any of you ever again for help with CVs. Because you've I don't want to try your patience. I no sooner think I'm going in the right direction and someone contradicts someone elses advice... I'm getting dizzy and feel like I'm wasting my time and going round in circles.

Bugger it, it's staying as it is now. If I apply for any permanent jobs, I'll tweak accordingly but other than that, sod it.

Not the *nicest* of nights, but definately a *good* one if that makes sense. Sitting musing over a couple of words for several hours is never fun but I can deal when it's with a friend.

I was up at 5am this morning. To straighten my hair. At about half five, I realised I don't currently have a hair dryer. Piddle. So I've had a long shower, taken my time, ironed things and am now able to go to work early to get help with the interview being held tomorrow. I LOVE my boss, he's so cool!

Other than this, last night I had the most wonderful conversation with a wonderful person. I've missed them. It was great to chat for so long, and I'm looking forward to their visit. Over a year since we parted company and it's all been laid to rest long ago. Thank you for listening and helping, it was perfect.

"Words are very unnecessary - they can all lead to harm" - how utterly true.

crappy, shitty, fuckity bollocks day today. I left rather early due to my stress levels. I REALLY couldn't take another moment there.

None of it was due to my fellow prisoners, it's mainly due to systems, due process, complete lack of common sense and total overload of red tape. Oh, and another departments total inability to READ what's on the file, and avoid duplication / actually do what needs to be done.

The City Council Housing Department

A wonderful place to work

Firstly, it's now exactly 4 months since [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine and I started dating.

Secondly, I've now been employed for a week, working for Birmingham Council's Housing Office. This is good as it means I shall be able to afford food etc. Thankfully my wonderful parents sent a nice loan at the start of the week so my bank account isn't looking too dead. AND I also had the pleasure of a wonderful meal on my return from work on Monday evening. In addition, the lovely miss [livejournal.com profile] zevbofb3k made up my packed lunch on Wednesday. She makes CRACKING cheese savoury. (Thank you both so much, it was greatly appreciated)

Thirdly, I'm now the owner of a VERY beautiful purple velvet and satinesque dress. It's totally gorgeous, as is the rather spiffy individual who purchased it for me and surprised me with it on Thursday.

Fourthly (I promise to stop numbering them in a tick) I had a wonderful evening on Thursday at a Brumgoth outing to see Pirates of the Carribean. Mr Depp and Mr Bloom did not disappoint. I shall be going to see it again with a group of girls, rather than sitting between 3 goth bois. I couldn't really justify swooning.... although apparently Lynette was more than happy to sigh and moan in a drooling manner.

Fifthly, I now have the photos that Dave at Decline took of myself and [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine a couple of weeks ago. Indeed, more are on the way - there are plans for another photo shoot very shortly which I'm looking forward to. For now, I hope that this picture of [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine, this picture of us both, and this rather amusing one will keep you going. The tweaked and enhanced versions will appear on Decline shortly.

AND finally, I had another wonderful day yesterday in town with [livejournal.com profile] toxicpixie, [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine, Ian and then later in Scruffy Murphy's with Irish Nathan and Rachael, Jennifer, Kim and Zesty, [livejournal.com profile] zevbofb3k and her Ronan, [livejournal.com profile] borange and other folks who's names currently ellude me.

Also, I've happily found the Brum Vampire MET group. Yey! I'm planning to go along and be a background person tonight, but it's not set in stone. It's totally dependant on what [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine and myself end up doing to celebrate.

So after a rather long night, I'm going to get showered and dressed and I shall speak to you all anon.

Just a brief hi to my somewhat lonely and dusty journal. This week I've been looking for jobs. So far, it's not gone overly well but then, I'm sure I'm just being a tad hard on myself.

Oh! And I am no longer a Brumgoth Virgin. Went on my first outing last night to a curry house ([livejournal.com profile] sapphrine dear, please remind me WHERE we went.....), then on to the Mercat and Eddies. I met a few lovely people who were all welcoming. I've hopefully made the foundations for a few friendships.

And then of course, [livejournal.com profile] toxicpixie was there too. :-P

It's been waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long since I've spent time with the lil guy, it was great to see him there. Also managed to convince him to come on to Eddies, though realistically when did it take much to persuade him to go drinking?

In the meantime, I've been missing Carlisle or rather it's inhabitants over the past couple of days. So guys, if you're reading this, say hi!

Also, I've had a couple of the first edition of photos back from Dave and I'm very very pleased. I'm rather looking forward to the next photograph frolic!

Anyway, off for now. I'm very tired, achy, thirsty, my back is KILLING me for NO apparent reason and I'm feeling rather twittery as a result of all the above.

Bye for now.....

Em x
