Basically yes, I'm a baker in a supermarket so I have to be quite flexible as to when I go depending if I've got stuff in the oven. She works in the cafe.

Managed to drag myself to the library to check out books for my next essay. I hate the library. It's busy and loud. So, I am proud of myself

^ Well done Bry, it's funny how libraries are indeed rather busy and loud these days!

I went to a gig in London last night I was quite doped up on diazepam and a few drinks but overall I had a really good time. The band were amazing. It's given me a new lease of confidence in myself, I'm capable of doing more, and to think of where I was like three years ago, it's pretty incredible (not to big myself up too much ha).

Thank you Biscuits and Mo

It was Pond, they were brilliant and the support act was Jade Imagine who were also really good.

Nice one indeed, Dimples!

I too went to a gig in London last night. I did a wee bit of pre-drinking, but thought I better stop in case I felt sick due to scoffing yum yums The show took forever to get started though (doors at 7, main act came on around 9) so I was disappointingly sober throughout. Too frit to go to the bar.

Not my video, but this was the energy in the audience for a few of the songs. I really wanted to bellow out the lyrics too, but I was up in the stalls and I couldn't tell if anyone could hear me, so I just sort of softly spoke the words

^ Nice one, Merritt!
In a few days, you'll be glad that you were sober so you could remember seeing the band and be able to remember the experience clearly.
haha yeah... first time I went to a gig I got there for 7pm like a keen bean and the main act wasn't on until gone 9pm! So now I always get there later, unless the support act is worth a watch too.

That's true, it wouldn't have been a good idea to get drunk. There was a lady a few rows in front who looked super tipsy, getting up out of her seat and wobbling about over the balcony, she got chucked out or moved or put in the bin eventually. Would've been nice to have had something though, to make me a bit more loosey brucie.

nahhh, you don't need booze - if you keep going to these sorts of things then over time you'll naturally become loosey brucie (sounds like a category from the Bristol Stool Scale teehee).

Congrats

Just see how you feel on the day. Even if you don't go into this interview there will be others, so just take it as far as you can. It's all good practice.

I went out to the pub last night with a couple of friends for the second Wednesday running. It was a lot busier this time which I normally struggle with, largely because of the extra noise but I managed to cope pretty well.

I opened up about how I've been feeling and will hopefully receive some additional support in the new year.

That's great newbs

Sorry this is a bit late. I'm so proud of myself I did the interview, I survived! I think I did well. But don't think it's a good fit for me. some things I didn't like (one of them was how I was spoken to)

^^^ Aww great news, Airelee!

Sorry that it didn't feel like the right place for you though. Ah well, it's all good practise and will help you to feel a teeny bit more comfortable about the next interview. It's always best to wait for something that feels right and like the kind of place you'd want to work. Better to have found that out in the interview then a week into a brand new job. I'm sure a job opportunity that's somewhere more welcoming will crop up soon

I'm in Vienna at the moment and went to some strudel-making demonstration today. I was sat at a table at the front and got chosen to answer a question, and when I answered correctly I got called up to help in front of everyone There were probably around 40-50 people watching and it was utterly mortifying at first, I had to put on an apron and paper hat and butter a strudel while the chef was joking around, and the audience were laughing and taking photos. It started to feel okay after a while though, I was trying to be conscious that nobody knew me and wouldn't ever see me again or think about me again as soon as it was over, and from doing that I think I was even kind of enjoying it by the end. I think they normally ask a child to do that but there weren't any in the room, since they gave me a certificate afterwards and let me keep the hat.

May not sound like a big deal but went to the cinemas alone to watch Blue Story. I think the fact that the movie only showed at evening in my local cinema and the cinema room was mostly filled with peers and some teens I suspect were a bit underage made me kind of anxious, particularly as I was alone while every one else seemed to go there with at least one person.

But I think it was worth it. It was a good stress and anxiety reliever.
