All Work And No Play

Well… I guess that’s not entirely true. Somewhere between (still getting used to) work and football, I just can’t seem to manage to write anything down these days. Despite getting off of work pretty early, I’m entirely beat when I come home, and inspiration is very hard to find. I’m hoping it’s just temporary, but I’ve toyed with the thought to give up the blog entirely.

Work in itself is fun though, and all of the foreseen problems haven’t come up (yet). In fact, I’ve even noticed that I like R., as opposed to… Well, the rest of the company. And the chick-with-the-stick has been quite okay as well.

All in all, I don’t have anything to complain (yet, haha), apart from the fact that I don’t have the mind to hang out here. And it’s not just the not writing part, but I also haven’t been reading on a daily basis. In fact, I haven’t been reading since last Sunday! My daily routine is now “get up, coffee, go to work, work, go home, eat (or not), couch yoga, sleep”, and I feel like I’m a hundred years old. I do hope it will pass soon, but until it does (or until I decide to call it quits) I hope you’ll be patient with me and my “weekends only” here.

Until then, and if nothing else, thanks for the last few months.

Love,

Monday; I’m Looking Forward To It

Quite a while ago I mentioned that I don’t like Mondays that much. But this time, I’m actually looking forward to it. You know why? Because next Monday, I’m starting my new job! I had the job interview yesterday morning, and I got a call from the employment agency at 5pm, telling me the good news. So in a couple of hours I’m off to sign my contract at the agency :)

There’s a lot I wanted to tell you about the interview and all, but I’m going to have to keep it short for now because I am so extatic I can’t really think straight ;) And I still haven’t really celebrated, was so tired yesterday – in fact, I was taking a nap when the employment agency called me! I have to say it’s the best wake up call I’ve had in a long time. Anyway, I hope I’ll be able to do all that in the next few days :)

Thanks for reading :)

Love,

Jobhunt: Update III

I might have found the perfect job, finally! Later today I’m off to another job interview, this time at an international transport technology oriented company. They were looking for a buyer with up to 5 years of experience, to set up the purchase department properly. And what better person to do that than me? Not only am I insanely good at buying shoes and stuff, I’ve been a buyer at my previous job for approximately 2 years, and in a way I’ve set up their purchase department as well since they didn’t have one to begin with.

I applied to this job when I registered at the employment agency I told you about the last time, and I was really curious if they’d even consider me at all. The employment agency employee I talked to advised me to write a motivational letter, to explain why I’m such a good candidate for that job at that specific company, and so I did. It almost turned out to be an essay, and apparently it worked: the employment agency called me, telling me that the company was very interested in meeting me. I was super excited, and so was the girl I talked to. Hell, I think we were both surprised!

Seriously, everything about this job is perfect (although I still don’t have a clue what kind of $$$ I should expect). It’s what I love to do, I’d be pretty much independent, and it’s not too far away from where I live. Plus, the company is more “serious” compared to what I’m used to. I want haz!

Last week, I had an intake and assesment at another employment agency as well, but I decided to not apply to the job in the end. It was a full-time customer service kind of thing, paying only a tiny bit less than my previous job. It might have been smart to give it a try anyway, but I can’t do customer service any more. And if you read my post on CS here, you’ll probably agree that it’s not my thing indeed!

Right now, I’m off to do a little bit more “homework” on the company, and get a good outfit together. Keep your fingers crossed for me! Of course, I’ll let you know how it went :)
