A quick 'un.


My interview went really well, that was the feedback from the person who ran it. Also my hair and outfit was on fleek, as all of you who follow me on instagram can attest.

Unfortunately I didn't get the job, for reasons I won't go into on here. Logistically it's probably a good thing, however the initial disappointment was acute.

Other job plans are being put into action. They are not what I will want to be doing regularly in 3 or 5 years time but they will make me money and that that is better than a poke in the eye with a stick. It's hard out there. I've given some thought as to the kind of work I want to do in the future. It will take a while to come to fruition.

With one thing or another, my advanced adulting skills of humility, grace and patience are getting a good workout. The inner child wanting to throw a tanty is let out in private situations.

I went and saw "Carol" with some girlfriends today. Though visually beautiful, in no small part due to Queen Cate and Princess Rooney, it was a bit boring. Too many long meaningful gazes, and the music with the scenes was a bit twee. I know it was meant to be a "restrained" movie but I think it was a bit drawn out with the restraint. Still, worth seeing. In keeping with the LGBTQI movie theme, I want to go see "The Danish Girl".

I am having some friends over for the afternoon on Australia day. I will make sausage rolls and we will drink bubbly.

The first week of Feb, we are off to Byron Bay. I am super looking forward to it as I've never been there before. Apparently it's very pretty and very chill.

I am loving funny pics on instagram. My funny pic posting game is strong at the moment.


  1. Good work re the stiff chin...or is that upper lip. I have had a very sheltered work life regarding the 'reality check' of having job interviews. I have only had two - for promotions, one I got as a temporary position and then when that job expired I went for another and didn't get the job. I felt like rubbish, I had no resilience whatsoever.

    I am out of the movie loop. Too far behind now to ever catch-up.
    Wait till you get to Byron. You will love the place!!! Make sure you drive around a bit. Get out of the centre. Xx

  2. You will get there and something that suits both parties will come soon enough. I have heard Byron Bay is nice too - isn't that home and away territory? Yes IG is all about positive stuff and twitter is for fights.

  3. I'm not a fan for the restrained movie. If you want that, go look at a painting.

    Never been to Byron, hope it's fun :)
