On Tuesday night I got ZERO sleep and had to sleep from 10:45 am yesterday to about 9:35 pm. I had a call to answer at 9 am and make a half-hour Skype call at 10 am; as I do every Wednesday. But I had my other errand for Wednesday afternoon covered.
I also done up a resumé using InDesign and misspelled Adobe. Nightmare. Quickly rectified. Thank God for the feedback.
Today I have to get rid of old headphones, which have seen better days, then buy a USB headset as well as screen wipes. I also have to get a shave at the Kurdish Barber in Magherafelt. All postponed from yesterday, when I had to sleep. 🙂 But, before that, a representative from WAVE trauma centre will speak to me. 🙂
I am doing well. During the night I kept up with my laundry. I have ALWAYS felt more productive at nighttime.
Now I am a certified InDesign user and feel epic. 🙂
Hopefully once I complete the Photoshop training – having done my illustrator training three weeks ago – I can get a job. Good luck to me; lol.
I remember having to do my final year project write up at University sixteen years ago not having a Scooby about Word formatting; I thought typing courses were beneath me back then. But now I feel that my improved typing skills have allowed me to become a more productive web user and computer expert. I discovered thanks to my instructor a website from a developer who lives in Bushmills, North Antrim, modern Microsoft fonts for Mac that I have also successfully installed on Ubuntu 16.04.01. Lovely jubbly! 🙂
Anyways, the excitement has kept me up all night. I feel like I could take on the world; hope that’s not a sign of hypomania. 🙂
And the instructor said he is mighty impressed at how quickly I have got up to speed. It’s a testament to how far I had come from the times when I dreaded the day ahead. It is because I taught myself how to manage life; I guess my brother also kept me on my toes regarding technical knowledge.
I feel that the effort I had put into improving my life is finally paying dividends. My horoscope today said I should celebrate, so I had pizza! 🙂
I have two job applications that could lead to interviews.
The first one is for a Graphic Designer role with The County Antrim Post at their Portglenone Office. They were looking experience in both Photoshop and InDesign. Over the past couple of weeks I have been using InDesign for the first time to get a feel of it. Hopefully it will work out; I attached a portfolio of work I done on InDesign alongside the Resumé (CV as we call it) in order to prove I’m not BSing them.
The second is for a Dental Practice at Ballymoney as a receptionist. I added a bit more to my cover letter by saying that I could say, “Hello!” in Polish, Lithuanian and Latvian; the three main Eastern European groups living in Northern Ireland. Their selection process is still under review due to the huge numbers applying.
In for a penny, in for a pound.
One track for tonight;
