And if bridges gotta fall, then you'll fall too

1. I miss the magic of Season One of Skins. Season Three just isn't cutting it.

2. I think I'm going to go to the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh (one of my favourite cities) in August. Yes please and thankyou.

3. So I know I sound like a lazy sod, but I just don't understand how people work full time without ending up sobbing wrecks who just refuse to get out of bed one day. In my quest to actually be able to feed and shelter myself in Spain I have been working full time; I've only done this for a month and I'm already feeling burnt out. This morning on the tram to work I was thinking 'Oh gawd I can't wait for the weekend' (yes, I spelt god wrong intentionally) and I hadn't even begun my week's work yet. I am seriously impressed with people who do this on a regular basis, it's a kind of mental, physical and emotional stamina which I'm not sure I possess. Oh and shut the hell up uni students, your life isn't as tough as you think it is. Well, okay, I guess that I do get to just switch off from work as soon as I get home, I no longer have something at the back of my mind saying 'Yo, lazy fark, you should be writing that essay about Ancient Greek porn, it ain't going to write itself'. But you know what uni sudents? I still envy you, because browsing the internet for hours reading random blogs is sexier when you have 'I should be studying' guilt. So now wasting time is just...wasting time. What? Eh? I don't know. Just go study. More caffeine?

  1. meeh you get used to it, and getting a living to live is better than living on the web. snoopy

  2. Aw..

    Full time work would be hard to get used to if you're not used to it.

    I had school & work, tafe & work, then just work... I don't know what it's like not to get up each morning.

    I hope you start to settle in soon =) Just in time to pack! lol

  3. There is a difference between a full-time job and a full-time career. I've been doing one for over a decade now and am only now making an effort to forge the latter of the two.

  4. Oh shucks... I can't imagine what it must be like for people who don't like what they do... In a way that's what scares me about graduating. The possibility of realizing that the job I'm in is not one that makes me happy.

    But there are always things that will get us by. At least you've got a goal to work towards and something to work for. Keep your goal in mind everytime you feel really shitty ok? Might help to ease the drudgery.

  5. is season 3 the one with effie and her new gang or is that season 4?

    ...ancient greek porn... researching that would be waaay more interesting than reading random blogs.

  6. Snoop: Mm not sure if I agree yet.

    Bambola: I was great for the first few weeks, then it hit me that it was going to continue like this for another 2 months. Arhk. I think I can do it :) I know what you mean about being really busy and having to just keep going, for awhile I was doing 5 units at uni AND working AND spending 3 hours a day on public transport.

    OK: of course, a full time job is either a means to an end or for someone with no idea what they want. A career...well, I wouldn't mind one of those for awhile.

    tis: Actually, I love what I do. I just don't like doing so much of it and on such a repeditive basis. I was worried about it when I graduated too, I have an idea of what I want to do, and if I don't like it...well, I'm not sure what I'll do with myself. :S

    adreamer: Yep, it's season 3 with Effie and the gang, I watch it for old times sake, but now they're just going for shock value. Oh, and you see 20 pornographic greek vases and the excitement is gone...
