OH GOD, WHY DOES MY PHONE DOING NEW THINGS AND/OR REFUSING TO BE CUSTOMISED IN THE WAY I WANT IT MAKE ME REALLY ANXIOUS AND UPSET? Every time. *sighs*

Have sent no job applications so far this wee, and IIRC none last week either.

Also I am waitressing 6am-2pm and 4pm-11pm tomorrow. Also there are at least two events that I 'ought to'/want to go to tonight and I feel massively guilty that I can't do both. Also not sure I want to go to *either*, what with my present mood of hating everything.
ARRRRRRRRGGGGG.


(On the plus side, have lovely new red blazer as replacement for the one I lost two years ago. Also, I will definitely post pictures of my birthday-presents-to-self soon. They include an MJN Air t-shirt.)

*hugs* This is why I do not have a smartphone. The potential for stress would be too great. (I spent ages today wrestling with a Cabin Pressure CD,trying to get the tracks in some sort of sensible order because apparently the manufacturers didn't think people would want to put it on their computers and plan accordingly. Technology is stressful.)

Job applications are horrible; it is fine to take a break from doing them.

I like the sound of the t-shirt.

*hugs back* I love my smartphone but .... yeah. Yeah. Technology is so very stressful! It should not be this stressful!

Right, I am now going to buckle down and send in an internship application for an arbitrarydeadline of 5.30, just so I can feel I've done something. Wish me luck!

I chose this one, out the the (many and glorious) shirts on offer on that website. (Katherine looked over my shoulder and said "Oh GOD NO, you've discovered Redbubble." But I have no regrets.)

Good luck! And that is a lovely t-shirt.

Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, right?

Ahahaha, the internship I'm applying for flat-out says that they want Oxford graduates. Well, it lists 'familiarity with academic environments (particularly the University of Oxford)' as a desired attribute.

Woo, one to tick off the list, then! I liked it when I applied for college library jobs and they asked for familiarity with the collegiate system.

Oh, you know how you said that Caitlin was reading a Michael Morpurgo book? I found one I hadn't read on a display outside a charity shop, read a few pages and was in tears instantly. I forgot his books did that.
