All over red rover

Well I'm extremely tired, as in absolutely wrecked. But yay tomorrow I can sleep in! Then I'm working tomorrow afternoon but not till 3 and then only till 7 so thats pretty cool. Woo Hoo. Like always though finishing exams is a bit of an anti-climax. I was just so tired by my last exam I probably rushed it a bit so I could get out of there and then when I did, I just went..."okay...hmm..I'm bored!"

Tonight we had steak and beer! It was good. Now everyone thinks I have a tail...which I sort of do..but mostly not!! Its not like something I can wag! Its just the bottom of my spine i guess curves in a bit, but unless you are groping my arse you can't tell.

I don't have much else to write about. I will resume the job hunt tomorrow...

3 down two to go and definitely not out

bah I'm annoyed about the telstra thing but they emailed me back when I emailed them telling them I thought it was unfair and it turns out I didn't get the job ages ago (like 2 days after my interview) and that i was held in a bank or something in case another job turned up. bah.

I feel sick because i just ate a whole packet of lollies while i got up to date on all the episodes of gilmore girls colin has downloaded, and four pieces of toast and a can of anyone who says I don't eat wrong however i may possibly never eat again after this tho!

Well my exam today was really good. i just studied the right stuff and basically regurgitated an entire paragrah from one of our lecture slides, "the objectives of ASEAN are to accelerate the economic growth, social progress and cultural development in a joint endeavour of partnership and equality to strengthen the prosperous and peaceful community of south east asian nations. " hows that!!!! he he he those are the exams i love. i read the entire textbook, memorise it and then write it down. totally should have been a two hour exam tho. i finished the short answer questions in about an hour and they were a page each, then wrote a three page essay on ASEAN and got out an hour and a few minutes early....and that was with dawdling because i didn't want to be the first person to leave!
ah well. better go start my next study....3 exams down two to go and no impending sense of doom or feelings of failure as of yet!

Telecommunication companies and where they can stick their jobs

Well I found out today I didn't get the job I was after. Haven't told anyone yet because I'm a bit disappointed, and also I'm annoyed.
I got told they would call me the day after the interview, its more than a MONTH later and they freaking email me. So I sent them an email telling them how annoyed I was ...(and how fantastic the rest of the recruitment program was)..they can stick their job.

So now I'm back to square one...big old gray, dreary, depressing square one. Funny thing is if I'd gotten the job I bet I wouldn't have passed any of my exams...not that I know that I have yet....

meh. I'd better go..

Pimples and Procrastination

Well it is now only 3 days till my first exam (one in morning, one in afternoon). I'm ok with my first exam I think. My second one is open book, but I think I'm being a bit slack on the study for that (i.e. I've done none) because...hey it's open book. I really just need to mark pages I think. There is only one exam now that I think I will struggle with. It's International Economics. I've been studying but need to pull my finger out and do some more. It's just with 5 subject, its just that one extra that makes it hard. Well I'm at work at moment. About to do some study...maybe. Well I've got to say, some customers sure know how to make me confused. They must think I'm lying when I say we have no computers free...this happens a lot but its a saturday arvo we are booked out (so NO free computers) and customers come in and ask for a computer and I say "sorry we are booked out till "...i.e as anyone can see, all the computers are occupied....five minutes later the same person comes in looks around to see no free computers and goes "is it still booked out?"....was I lying when I said we were booked out till ? Don't think so!!! Its pretty much on par with the kids that ring up and go "I'd like to book a er um make an um i want a computer"? So I go "okay what time"..."ohhh...mum she wants to know what time?"......ffs! isn't this something you would work out before you rang
?....I would say 75% of the time they also tell me the time and then hang up without telling me their name. If I do ask their name they get offended like I should know it!...its SO AND SO......grrr. But other than that my work it pretty good. I've learnt to dread phone calls though.

Hmm well I'd say when I write next that I will be when my exams are finished.


p.s. I have a big pimple on my cheek...its like all my exam stress in a horrible red lump! oh well

Best of You ( a good day)

Well it is only 4.07PM while I am typing this, but so far today has been good. I started my exam study, I went for 2 run/ on the way home from dropping my car off for a service and one on the way to collect my car from the service. You see my car and I have a love/hate relationship. The car is a money sucker...I have a huge loan to pay off when I finish uni but I have a very reliable (when I remember to put the radiator cap back on it) car...everytime I get the damn thing serviced they seem to find something chronically wrong..and by chronically we are talking big $$$ it was no surprise I was feeling a bit apprehensive about picking my car up.... but get this $187 replaced spark plugs, fan belt few other niggles fixed up...and that was it. I was in shock....not as much shock as I was when the other place where I used to get it serviced told me I was up for (and by the same token, dad was up for) $1,500 for a new (get this) AIR FLOW is about the size of two ice cubes (of course if you have really small ice cubes this won't be right) .
Now I am off to buy my mum a birthday present, take it to her, come home and do some more study!
