Have been on the job search websites applying willy-nilly. Have put in nearly twenty applications in the last four days - I think. It feels like that anyway. Have been declined for one already :)
On government website, while cutting and pasting from previous application, realised I hadn't spell checked and there were a few spelling errors. Clicked withdraw application and it withdrew both applications instead of just the one I'd ticked and had to reapply for them both.
Two more applications later realised I'd typed Manage instead of Manager - gah!
I hate applying for jobs and my discomfort with selection criteria manifests in stupidity, carelessness and inappropriate silliness that seemed funny at the time.
Three hours or more of this torture and I am ready to retire to bed with a bottle and chips for the day, but cannot because I can't afford to waste money on frivolous things like booze and junky things to eat (besides which it is babysitting night). It's sandwiches and soup for me from now on. Macaroni with cheese and two minute noodles and cups of tea.
Was commiserating with another sister yesterday whose temporary position which is coming to an end somewhat earlier than expected. I am grateful I do not have children and a mortgage.
Lotto ticket buying time *sigh*
I am going to go home and let my cats console me :)
P.S. The tour diary of Civil Civic goes from triumph to triumph. I adore Ben more than Dan. Possibly even as much as Kiernan, except Ben is more prolific.
