God damn it, timing really really does fucking hate me, doesn’t it.
About 3 weeks ago I had to go to the job centre for an advisor interview thing, where I said I’d be interested in doing some volunteer/work experience, and they gave me an email address to email to CV to. The email address wasn’t that of the company I’d be working for, but instead it was someone else who worked for the job centre, the person who was dealing with the placements. I emailed her the CV as I said I would the next day.
Three weeks had passed and I hadn’t heard anything from this JC employee. At my advisor appointment yesterday, I was asked about it and I said that I hadn’t heard anything and did indeed send it the day after, I said that I hadn’t even got a reply to the email saying “thanks for the email” from this JC employee. My advisor said she’d remind her.
At about 5.15 last night, I had an email, directly from the company, saying that I hear you’re interested in work experience, give us a call so we can talk. Naturally, I didn’t last night, but they phoned me today (when I was still in bed) at 1pm. They said it is work experience so it’s not fixed 9-5, Mon-Fri. I can work as much/little as I want and they’ll fit it around things like me signing on, any interviews etc., and it is for a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks. I’m going to drop in on Friday to presumably chat with them.
Yes I know this is great and everything, but as I mentioned timing, on personal level, is really shitty - if only the JC employee actually did her job 3 weeks ago.
As you know, I’ve sort of been hanging out with G a bit more recently. But she is heading off to uni soon, which means there is only a limited amount to time to hang out with her (whether anything happens or not, it doesn’t matter), as I’ve actually not had the chance to party with her yet. She only goes to Metros on a Wednesday, and seemingly doesn’t go out much on a Saturday. Obviously I was prepared to be free over these next two weeks meaning that it was possible to go out one of these Wednesday when she’s still here.
As well as this, Manny comes back to the UK at the end of next week, meaning the Wednesday after next he’ll be free to party. Whether or not that is G’s final week I don’t know, but it would’ve been awesome to combine the two. That same week I also have a proper interview too, not mention the fact that we’re moving soon but have no clue when as we haven’t been given dates yet.
As I said, it is just me being a bit of a bitch, but it’s still highly fucking annoying as to how my personal life/relationships with friends is again fucked by timing. If I’m doing this work experience and they explicitly say they want me to come in on a Thursday, I can’t really say “no thanks, I want to go out and party with a hot chick and my mate I’ve not seen for two years on a week night”.
