maybe you could get a part time job at a fabric shop and still do stuff from home as well?

effervescence 09-06-2008 04:05 AM

maybe they made a mistake ally? i'd say try them and see if u can get by on 300mg.

effervescence 09-06-2008 04:07 AM

oh god, ive just remembered, as of saturday i'll be home for 3 weeks, which means no RYL. a month of no psych and 3 weeks of no RYL :( wat am i going to dooooooooo?

blondiebear 09-06-2008 06:24 AM

I checked out the want ads. Bleh. I'm so not qualified for anything there. I'll just have to go to the fabric stores and make sure that I have plenty of cards at both stores. That is how I advertise, put cards in their files of cards of seamstresses.

I've worked in a fabric store before. Was a mess. Like a customer telling me that she was going to pray for me to behave myself. That store closed. Depending on how things go with my business, I'll see if the other store nearby needs someone a couple of mornings a week. I'm great at measuring and stocking and organising. But customer service? The unwashed masses? Eeewwww.

Or I could, gee, like maybe rest? Catch up on some of my own stuff? The two sun shirts that I have sitting cut out and ready to sew in their zipper lock bags? The petticoat that I haven't even cut out yet? Start exercising? Ooh, weird, take care of myself. Oh yeah, maybe even get enough sleep? Just cause for me "dizzy" means light headed from lack of sleep. No I didn't catch up on vacation. That means that I would have wasted time that would have been spent sightseeing.

Chloe, I'm sorry. Don't know what to do though.

blondiebear 09-06-2008 06:30 AM

Ally, check with the doctor?

I'm off to bed. I'm lucky, when I'm tired like this I go right to sleep.

irkeninvader 09-06-2008 08:45 AM

Happy birthday Katch :)

Choloe, is there any way you'd be able to get to an internet cafe if you need to come on here but can't at home?

Susan, it sounds like you need to take some time to look after yourself and get some sleep!

Jetforce 09-06-2008 10:04 AM

*notices that my glasses are filthy and need to be washed.*

I need to phone my client to confirm our appointment, the dentist to make an appointment to have him look at my sore teeth and my regular doc for a lump on the bottom of my right foot.

Sleep? I've heard of it.

blondiebear 09-06-2008 05:31 PM

I am running a bit late. Overslept. I need to call that client. I hate to make phone calls to people I don't know before I'm showered and dressed. I feel immodest slopping around in my sleep shirt.

Don't panic, it's fine to be nervous and I'm sure you'll do fine.

Why not? They obviously liked what they saw in your cv/application.

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:11 PM

no hiding =)

Detour. Derail 09-06-2008 08:15 PM

*sits in the corner poking herself*

Automatik Teknicolour 09-06-2008 08:18 PM

I'd say that I'ma sitting drinking, but I feel queasy so I stopped.
You haven't ruined anything Al, trust us.

Detour. Derail 09-06-2008 08:23 PM

I'd quite like a drink...
In fact...I'd quite like this job...
Then I can go BUY some drinks.
And I've found a place to live.
But I need this job :x

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:24 PM

*pokes you both*
just cause. friendly ones of course.
i'm glad you're not drinking anymore. not that you feel quesy though :s

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:25 PM

and alexx, there's not reason why you won't get it. just sell yourself at the interview. dress nice, and blag if you have to.
my brother worked at the co-op bank before uni for a year. walked into it straight outta college. if he can, you can.

Detour. Derail 09-06-2008 08:33 PM

Ick. My mums trying to make me wear a long sleeved black wool jumper/shirt combo. I'd die of heat exhaustion

"they wont hire you if you have scars" says she.

I nearly cried re-doing my CV today coz it was like
"right...education...GCSE results...not nearly as good as they should be. Interests. I have none. Im a boring **** with no life. Skills. I am great at being taken for a ride but other than that...none..."
Just sat with my head on the keyboard for a while

Zedebee 09-06-2008 08:35 PM

I don't belong here
I don't belong anywhere
But I jut wanted to say random things and this seems like the right place
Nobody'll read this so wahtever...
I actually miss the psych ward and I'm scared of going back, yet it seems exciting, yet...I don't know I just...URGH!
I don't know anything anymore
I want to be 2 different people at the same time but I can't and everything's going wrong and I just...oh crap....
I'm FINE
Really
Yeah
*curls up somewhere*

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:39 PM

Alexx hun, is there nothing lighter you can wear? Or just short sleeves if you feel confident enough. Just say yeah, I used to self harm. They can't not employ you for that. As for CV's, they're a bugger but you have to blag. I hate my GCSE results, hate writing them. As for hobbies, I say horse riding (not done for years) music (i broke my flute years ago) etc...they don't need to know it all. Skills = you're a good listener (good with customers), good on a pc, etc.
I'll have my fingers crossed for you.

Zed, hun, you belong here. I'm really new here but everyone's lovely. So don't worry about that.
Do you think you need hospital help hun?
You're NOT fine hun, that's clear.
Talk to us?
Or PM me if you need me, anytime, seriously.

Im FINE with my scars...I wear strappy t-shirts and short sleeved tops all the time but she made it sound like they'd...WITCH-HUNT me or something...which made me even more sure that I wouldnt get it...even though I explained I'd be working a PHONELINE (ie not seeing customers face-to-face so it doesnt matter if i have scars or not.

MammaMia 09-06-2008 08:44 PM

I'm great.
Yet I feel like crying.
What fun.

*hides in a corner, blowing her nose YET AGAIN*

Detour. Derail 09-06-2008 08:44 PM

Zeeeeeeeddddddd!!!
*cuddles you carefully*
Hey sweety...whats going on?
And don't worry...everyone is welcome here.

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:45 PM

If you're confident about them then I doubt they'll see it as a major issue.
If your mum won't listen could you maybe change when you go in?

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:45 PM

What's up Hells hun?

Naww I'm just gonna wear what I want. If it starts an argument then I've found a room I could rent.
She's just SO.STUPID.*wants to shake sense into her sometimes*
Comments like that dont help.
It wasnt all that recent...(few weeks ago maybe) but it's STILL playing in my head....and the weather was JUST as hot then as now.
I dont see her problem

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:49 PM

She's your mum, she's meant to be awkward. Maybe she's just worried you won't get the job. But you've got the better attitude to it.
Go you on finding a room to rent.
I'd love to do that...damn money.

Zedebee 09-06-2008 08:49 PM

*cuddles Laura, Alexx and Hells*
Laura....hospital help is bad 'cause my family don't see the point anymore 'cause I'm s'posed to be better and it didn't help last time, just made me worse and I just....it's better that I keep it all inside and stop talking and stuff really...
Alexx sweetheart, forget about your mum. You seem confident ans strong enough to just go there and do what you need to do. There's no reason I could think of for them to not employ you as long as you show them your strengths - your great people skills and determination. And I know it can be hard but damnit you go for it =)
Hells...sweetheart...you wanna talk? *sits with*

Detour. Derail 09-06-2008 08:52 PM

Laura, Zed, thankyou *cuddles*
I really want this job...Its soooooo much better than my last.... a real step up...
It's almost like...i NEED it...not for the money...but to make me feel like I'm actually doing something with my life instead of being a bum :blink:

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:53 PM

Zed hun, just cause your family don't like it doesn't mean it won't benefit you, whether it did last time or not. Either way, keep talking to us, keep ranting. Don't bottle it all up. I'm always here for you, yeah?

Detour. Derail 09-06-2008 08:53 PM

^ I second that.
She stole the words right from my mouth!!
*huggleS*

Kuwairo 09-06-2008 08:54 PM

You can do more with your life Alexx. I know that, whether or not you get this job.
Oh, and sorry for stealing your words!
