My app is actually useful today. It can even keep up with my mobile broadband. I cannot get on the internet much due to bad reception and my family in Dorset not owning a phone. The only connection to the outside world is in cafes. That's when I can be bothered to create accounts. Geez, I fill in so many forms nowadays.
I'll phone up the local college tomorrow morning to find out if I have the job. The few days I have spent down here have been difficult. Family illnesses and missing my friends have took their toll on me. Constant headaches caused by chain-smoking relatives and their general negative attitude. It's hard. Really hard.
My interview went OK. I couldn't concentrate because I had spent the day before listening to people complain about their life for six hours. Plus, thinking about family illness made me a little teary. But I had knowledge of software and procedures.
Two of the staff I spoke to said I'd probably get bored. I also overheard a member of staff telling the receptionist the department is rubbish. Great.
My husband is visiting tomorrow. It'll be great to have a like-minded person to have great conversation with. All my family talk about are things/people they hate. I can only imagine it's what a Daily Mail podcast sounds like. I try to be understanding and non-judgemental because my family are my history. But I give up trying to make them question their beliefs. God, I'm so lonely.

I decided to take today off from applying for jobs (but then I did see one I liked this afternoon and couldn't help myself). But the rest of the day was application free. Geez, I know I have a lot of free time but it doesn't feel very free when I'm obsessing over jobs.
I've just been listening to Boys & Girls and watching people pass by.

It turns out fear makes me write great applications because I've been asked to interview for four jobs on Monday. So I'll be heading back to Dorset this weekend.
I bought a cute Uttam dress in a charity shop today. It stunk so I chucked it in the washing machine. Then, I thought maybe I should've checked if it needs to be handwashed. Of course it does. That happens every time I buy a dress in a charity shop. So I'm watching it spin and thinking why do I never check the labels in the shops?
I saw a Sakura Momiji doll in the same charity shop. But it was a little too battered and I'd run out of money anyway. I noticed someone had put a message in the secret slot (that sounds wrong). I tried to pull the paper out to read but it was wedged in too far. I wonder what it says, I might go back to get it, you know I love finding messages.
I find it funny that I describe all the boring activities in my day with such detail on this blog. But when I have interesting and important things going on in my life I clam up. Meh. There's just so much to talk about and I don't know where to begin. It tires me out sometimes.

I tried to enrol on GCSE Science but it turns out I was given the wrong information. Two pieces of wrong information in one week. That's one thing I disliked about working in FE; understaffed until peak times, then it was too busy to train new people thoroughly. A continuous circle of mismanagement. But I guess that applies to most places. It's sad because proper training and securer employment contracts benefit both staff and students.
Still, I had a little surprise when I saw myself in Tate Collectives showcase today. I only joined to view other people (and I uploaded my photos just to add content to my profile.)
I'm looking forward to visiting my husband tomorrow. It has been so long since we talked.
