An inbetween-y time...

So as of yesterday I am once again unemployed, though this time by my own choice. My time at Wilkenson is at an end. Which is just as well, as customers were beginning to get on my nerves severely!! Seriously, I should never have a job that involves dealing with customers. After a few months my patience starts wearing thin.

Anyway, I now have an "inbetween" period of one month, seeing as my PhD stuff doesn't start until September. I thought I would need this time to sort myself out.

Firstly - I want to chill out after my retail stint. It's the second longest job I've ever had, the longest being at UCI cinemas. It was being to frustrate me, and it's always a good idea to leave before you take it out on the customers. So yeah, I wanted time to leave my "work" hat behind and basically chill out for a bit!!

Second - I do need to prepare myself for the PhD somewhat. I desperatly need new field gear, but I wont get any money for a while, and as I'm pretty broke I'll have to wait. Also, the season is not condusive to buying decent field gear. It's all summer macs and gaitors nsutff. No hardcore jackets with removal fleece layers, lots of pockets etc.

As well as sorting that stuff, I need to sort out my rooms. Get my PC fixed, that kind of stuff.

Third - I'm supposed to have my driving test on the 11th, and basically I'm going to fail. There is no point postponing it cus I wont be able to take it again til October sometime, which means I'd have to have another stack of lessons. I might as well give it a good go, and if I fail, well, I've got my first fail out of the way and know what it'll be like and stuff. I've got two 2-hour lessons the week prior, so hopefully I'll be back up to scratch. I had a two week break and basically it all went haywire. My manouvers are absolutly fine, but "general driving", not so much. I especially hate islands.

So yeah, that's basically what's going to be going on and such. I'll probably get bored and wish I was still working because money is getting tight, but hey. I'm sure I'll manage.

Ciao f'now.


Eh, don't feel bad about the driver's test. I had to take mine not once, not twice, but thrice

Hi Esmerelde,

I uncovered your blog after discovering your "book review" website.

Best of luck on your driving test. Please keep everyone posted on the outcome of your test.

Hi Dee,

Thank you for taking the time to go through my website. I appreciate it, especially as the site is still very small and 'up and coming'.

And the results of my driving test can be seen in the latest entry...
