The shock of full-time work

The reason I have not been active of late, is down to the shock to my system of a ‘full-time’ job. Yes, the temp job that starts at 8am, causing me to jolt out of bed at 6am, bleary-eyed and groping for the shower. By the time I have sat mind-numbingly staring at the screen all day, helping with collation of student enrolments and other numerical data, I come home glassy-eyed.


Now, I know all of you who have been working full-time for the last year or so will struggle to find any sympathy, but the fact of the matter is, I HAVE been working all that time too: On my FUN projects. Writing my book, going to Scotland, doing memes, setting up a blog. Yadda yadda yadda. I would like to reserve some time to continuing to do JUST THAT, and so this temp job is a way to bolster the bank account and free me to find the job of my dreams.

Okay – let’s discuss ‘the job of my dreams’. I’m going for an interview tomorrow for the one I really want. It’s at the AUT University in the Library, and is a 3-day-a-week job, freeing the rest of my time up for the other things I love to do. Here’s hoping!! Think of me at around 11am NZ time will you?

Gotta go – got to get my portfolio ready. Then go to bed. Until later. I WILL report back if I am successful – that’s a promise.
