Time for a brief catch-up!
In the end after a few more calls, I received a call from the local office who said no interview was needed, just two bits of paper that I already knew I had to drop in when I got them.
All that effort and time for freaking nothing!
The outsourced government job seeking network are a bit of a pain too, though I haven’t written about them before. Basically they are terrible at doing things like answering phones and transferring calls without cutting you off.
They keep scheduling me appointments when I’ve told them I will be at work, wasting more bloody time of mine to reschedule. Oh, and they won’t let my husband call and reschedule for me, despite the fact he always has full access and permissions given by me. And to make it even more annoying, since I don’t get any Centrelink benefits right now in any way, shape or form, the entire thing is a waste of my time and effort.
I mentioned I was writing an eBook, NaNo style. Well that got put on hold when I got sick last week. I’m also wondering if my blog is coming full circle and heading back towards some of the early ideas I had for it; my first tagline was “a journey towards positive choices and weight loss” (or something like that).
My bitchy throat:
I’m sure it’s un-PC or something to call my throat a bitch, but it makes me feel better to hate the nasty infection I have, so I’m still going to keep calling it one.
I woke up last Thursday feeling like I had been punched in the jaw, and saw my GP Friday morning, started antibiotics & since then I’ve been struggling through interviews and work alternating shivering and sweating.
It has been the most glamorous week of my life.
I’m totally buggered but may finally be starting to feel better.
I’d like to use the time I have “off” this week to catch up on my eBook. So I’m putting a call out for anyone who would like to guest post. I’m pretty open to topics, I like to talk about most things! Unpaid guest posts, sorry. I don’t even make enough to cover my hosting from the blog at the moment. If I could pay, I would pay. Drop me an email or leave a comment!
How are things going for you?
