Momma Said There'd Be Days Like These...
So, its been a week and no news on the scholarship. This has me all kinds of worried. And as if waiting weren't bad enough on its own, as each day passes I start to get more worried that soon my waiting will be over...and that it won't end as I hope it will.
Of course, you can't let your mind get wrapped up in these sorts of things. So, I continued on the job hunt today. I wasn't hired by the coffee shop. I would be upset about this, but I'm actually more upset that I'm still unemployed in the first place than I am by individual rejections. What is wrong with me that British businesses don't want to hire me? Is it really that daunting to check references in another country? Is it really that hard to shoot off an email (because I provide email addresses with all my references) if you don't want to be charged an international phone rate. Its beyond upsetting, its vexing.
On the plus side, I suppose, I found a sandwich shop and a Greggs in the area that are hiring. I could be the new pasty girl. That sounds sexier than it actually is.
