In the end, I didn’t get the job in Jordanstown I was interviewed for. However my employment advisor will hook me up with a fella who might streamline my job search and find a job that would suit me better.
Just after submitting a resumé to the company my brother now works for, but to become a software tester in their County Donegal office. It has been seventeen years since I last worked in that field, but did a mini-course in software testing two years ago. Gotta hope for the best.
My brother has proven to me that the vocational route in education is a much more productive and prosperous route to take than formal schooling. Ireland can only produce so many Teachers, Doctors, Nurses and Chemists.
More terror attacks, this time in London. When will Britain stop obeying America? The invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq have created a domino effect.
Anyways, I’m still here and still have hope. Hope will only evapourate whenever I’m pushing daisies. 🙂
Today I ordered 2 kilograms – 4.4 pounds – of organic carrots from a homegrown garden website based in Newtonards and that I had to pay via PayPal for the carrots and postage separately.They were bought with view of beginning fermenting carrots to boost my immune system. Their website has a glitch; my background in Software Testing. “Fine, fine, fine, mouse, fine, mouse, fine, rat, fine, syringe, fine, nose!” 🙂 (still can’t resist quoting ‘The Simpsons’ even twenty years on)
Then I went for a massage, only to find out that the guy who I thought had cancelled our appointment at 2 pm today hadn’t. And then I wanted to go with him to Davagh Forest. So, I followed his car across a Godforsaking hilly road which I had never been on before and dissected a quarry. From now on, I’ll get a lift off him.
Also, today I was on the edge because the past few days have wrecked my body and mind. Back to drinking caffeine after 7 pm; was too much cold turkey for me.
Tonight I am unable to sleep. The past week or so my sleeping patterns were ski-whiff.
I brushed up by CVs for IT work, for both parts of Ireland, then submitted my Southern CV to the Software Testing firm that had taken over the place I worked at in 1999-2000. I’m still in contact with a former workmate who is now Senior software tester after getting back in contact with her via Social Media.
I know that the only way from here is up.
