So... I'm back. And I'll be posting most days from now on, at least for the next month or so, and then as often as I can after that. This is because at the end of May I'm doing a roadtrip across various bits of the continent, then moving to Vienna, and then I'm moving to Toronto, and I'd rather like to document all of this. You can therefore expect photos, among other things!

Here's what I've been doing since I last posted... )

I have been following my f-list even though I haven't been posting, so I have some idea what you're all up to, but come tell me your exciting news and anything I may have missed in the last 6 months!

I got the job! Or at least, I'm learning the script now, and in a couple of weeks I'll do an audition tour, and so long as that goes OK I'm in. So fingers crossed :) And I was at a birthday party this evening where they happened to have a piano. When I asked about it, my friend said I could play it if I wanted to, so I just played one of my songs. I wasn't really intending that people listened, I was just enjoying playing a real piano for once, but at the end quite a few people clapped and asked who it was by because they liked it, and were really surprised when I said me! So I'm happy :)

The weather and some stuff that's happened this week has finally combined to lift my mood, hurrah!! My grandparents are here until Monday, which is cool (free food and sightseeing, which I never get around to doing otherwise). I've got a job interview for the tour guide company I really really want to work for this summer, this afternoon. So I'm happy :) I really hope the interview goes well - I have no fears of being able to perform the tour ('perform' being the operative word - it's got to be entertaining), it's just convincing them that I can do it that's the stumbling point. But fingers crossed...

I also finally finished tidying my room. I've still got a few things to sort out, but at least it's done now! So that's helped with the happiness-making. And finally, and best of all, I now have TWO people interested in playing my songs with me, so we're going to meet up on Tuesday and have a jam session. In fact, by Tuesday, there might even be more people...

So all in all, this weekend is looking pretty good :) And a friend of mine from uni in London is here as well, so I'm going to meet up with her tomorrow or Sunday. Yayageness!

Dilemma

I've been offered the possibility of a really great job over the summer. It's not definite, I have to go and train for a week or so first, but after that I could do it. The problem is, I'm playing lots of gigs with The Promise this summer (the band I'm in for the Scout centenary). Literally, I'm going to need about 4 weekends off and one whole week, and maybe more. My current job, the charity fundraising thing, is really flexible (I chose what hours I work each week) and so that wouldn't be a problem. But with this new job I think it would be. So do I go for the new job and stress about conniving my way into weekends off, or do I email the guy back and tell him that I've been offered the chance of developing my music career and I think it would impinge (is that a word?) too much on the job for me to be able to take it? Grr, it's so annoying, the job I've been offered is tour-guiding round London, which I really want to do. But I just am not sure it's going to work. Ick. Advice would be very welcome!

In other news, I got locked in the toilet yesterday for half an hour... )

Well, I have an interview tomorrow... fingers crossed for me at 12 o clock! *quakes nervously*

In other news, I have decided to try out writing something longer than poetry. Let's see how long THAT lasts!

Meh

I feel so lacking in self-confidence at the moment. It's bizarre, really, because it's the same old, same old feeling I've known forever and ever, and yet my circumstances are so utterly different from what they were before. I have a boyfriend. I'm living in London, in a flat, with people I am good friends with, who accept me for what I am and who I am. I don't have to act around them. My life is getting sorted.

BUT.

Cut for ranting, read if you want... )

Sorry to put this all on here, but I need to get it out there. Gah.
mk_tortie: (light)
Oh, please just call me. Stupid agencies. Stupid joblessness. I said I was free whenever, didn't I? But you need to let me know when you need me, cos otherwise I can't start looking for another job.... GAH!
