Well, I am back to posting on a (mostly) daily basis as I have more free time than I need, and am actively looking for work. I have applied for several over the past couple of days, but so far nothing has materialised, sometimes barely an acknowledgement email from them. I am launching a blitzkrieg on all of the job agencies here, plus it looks like I'm on a Pathweys project. Retraining, probably alongside all the other artists who have been urged to retrain by the government - condescending bastards.
I first heard this song by Yonderboi (sample of course from Jack Nicholson) when I returned to the photolab 2 years ago. I so miss that place - wages and overtime aside, I miss having my 8am break and watching the sunrise over the misty hills. I have become so used to the job that not being there feels like a personal snipe. Truth is, they are not taking on anyone seasonal and I suspect if they do, I am probably midway on their list of returners. I actually yearn for Audiobooks, Spotify and a corner on my own to pack, with little interaction from others. Oh and to be paid a regular wage - feeling the pinch, though I have now heard that my previous job IS shutting it's doors before Xmas even if the actual holiday village isn't. Plus side - at least the shop manager and I are on good terms and she will give me a good reference.
Another plus side is that October has been beautiful here
