I keep meaning to leave the house and pop over to uni, but I’ve left it too late and it’d be really awkward if I suddenly stumbled out past the carpenters with the loud voices and awkward laughs.
So I’m just going to remain hermit-like until they leave, or I truly can’t function any more. I’m so hideously hungry.
(And to anyone new to UEA on tumblr, have a fun Freshers’ week! And I’m so, so deeply sorry to the person who received Suffolk Terrace D-02 Room something-like-maybe-6. I do hope they managed to lift the carpet hair dye stains, and fix the cupboard. Have fun with the cocktail umbrella under the bed, and the strange smelling wardrobe though.)
Oh student loan please do come through. I need necessities, like nice wine and facial moisturiser. My chin is horrible.
That and my coat, which my mother is supposed to be posting up to me and I now hope she hasn’t taken me up on my offer of ‘pay-on-collection’ because bollocks I have to change and do not intend to get cash money out at any point.
All 4 (4!) Chapelfield jobs are asking for previous high street retail experience. The worst part is that I have retail experience, but it never seems to count as it was voluntary. This is despite having worked on the till, stocks, accounting, display, cleaning etc etc. I’m pretty sure I got more retail experience out of working at Marie Curie than I would’ve on the high street.
How does one get a years worth of restaurant/waiting experience when every single sodding restaurant asks for previous experience?
Because I’m scanning through minimum wage late night waitressing jobs and they’re all demanding previous work. I do wish my step-dad would stop saying “just get a waitressing job!” whenever I talk about money. It’s shit.
