 I have a job. Thank god.

It's part time, two afternoons a week, so I'm still going to keep looking for another one at the weekend. But. I'm just so so relieved. There will be some monies!

I think this means I have even less chance of getting an internship, but so far that's just been dreaming and rejections, so. This is very good.

Also, Glee is back. Yay! I've missed it like, a lot.

Other TV stuff - Skins is back with a third generation. I'm intrigued but not sold yet. (My dad loves it. O_O )

Skins so far... )

Is anyone watching Episodes, the comedy with Matt LeBlanc playing himself? I like it. 

Oh, and Being Human is pretty awesome! Though, um, last nights ep made squeamish me turn away in horror a good few times. Just... ew.

I applied for JSA on Tuesday, which I suppose is why I now have two possible interviews and an offer of a "trial shift" for work. Hopefully any of these sources will decide to give me some money soon, Christmas is coming!

Can I just say, OMG KURT. In the latest episode of Glee, "Furt". My heart is breaking. Chris Colfer needs to win some kind of award for his acting, an Emmy? Is that what Emmys are for? Seriously, so so good. As usual, the rest of the storylines in that ep are kinda shitty, and I'm not appreciating vaguely nice Sam messing with awesome Quinn, but whatevs. KURT. OH MY GOD. SO GOOD. This confirms and continues the pattern of "good ep, bad ep, good ep, bad ep". Which is really irritating. Come on Glee, why not "good ep, good ep, even better ep"?

Also, there was no singing in this ep for at least the first 15 minutes. It was not missed particularly, because I only would have wanted Kurt to sing and it might have messed with the tension in his acting scenes, so. I don't really care for Ceelo, but it was nice to see the Glee club finally stick up for Kurt, and to tell the gay character on no uncertain terms that he's perfect "just the way you are."

I've said it before, I'll say it again - Burt Hummel looks so completely surprisingly different without his hat. He's a pretty great father though.

Anyway. Since I'm wasting my life, here is some meme-age, ganked from bearodactyl. Because I'm contrary I'm not doing it properly, just picking out the bits I want, the beginning and the end. But in case anyone wants the complete set of 10, it's meant to be

10 things you want to say to 10 people right now
9 things about yourself
8 ways to win your heart
7 things that cross your mind a lot
6 things you wish you'd never done
5 people who mean a lot to you (in no order whatsoever)
4 things that turn you off
3 things that turn you on
2 smileys that describe your life right now

 So it turns out that looking for work is really dull and boring.

Writing cover letters is cringeworthy at the best of times, but I've done it so many times in the last couple of days that I'm starting to become less phased. Meanwhile, I've pretty much decided my CV is about as streamlined as it is going to get. As much I don't like that as an application process, it's definitely better than application forms, which usually have a very dispiriting ratio of space allocated for experience and qualification. Qualifications, I have, let me show you them! Don't give me three tiny boxes, I can't fit all my GCSEs in there... Clearly, my school lied to me about priorities.

All I really want though is to get one of the cool internships I've applied for. But those are unpaid. *sigh*

And I need monies, because I have none, and I need to finance my ticket habit - I impulse bought a ticket to go see Celebrity Autobiography tonight, in London. I couldn't help myself - it was reduced to £9, and IT HAS DAVID TENNANT AND MICHAEL URIE. I can take it out of the food money (ie, all the money) since I haven't been spending much of it... oops. Must eat more.

So, I am totally excited about that this evening, which will keep me going as I spend today going through applications looking for work and paying off my credit card debt. David Cameron would be pleased I'm sure.





ps. Glee was horrible this week.
