We're raising money for our team if anyone wants to donate anything. Not excepting a single penny from you lot though as it's not really a charity. I know I'd think twice.

It's all about me in a Santa suit isn't it?

Why are you watching Baywatch on a Friday night? Go the pub where there are real women. :P

I'd not long got back from work and was relaxing before a potential 12 hour shift today (managed to get away after 'just' 11 :lol: ). Doubt I'll be out again until Testament next week...

Getting pretty fucking nervous about my interview on Tuesday now, as I don't exactly have a great track record with the bastard things. The fact that this is the first one I've had in a few months too is making it start to feel a bit like an all or nothing situation too :(

Interview nerves are pretty standard and everyone has their fair share of failed interviews behind them. Don't let it bother you and don't let it hold you back. What's the interview for?

Hitting the patients is not allowed. Speaking of which, on your course do you learn about the history of mental health treatment along with specifics on abuse cases and scandals?

I hit no one! I mean, I only visited three people, but we left them all unharmed. Although I did kick a vase of flowers accidentally. They were dead anyway.

Yeah, we've not done a great deal of mental health at all yet because of all the general nursing/legal jumping through hoops you have to do before you're allowed to do anything, but we have had a session on all the horrible treatments up until not all that long ago, and we've covered a *lot* about more recent abuse cases in the media regarding care generally.

Just to copy Graeme, got myself an interview tomorrow.

Don't really know what the jobs about, and I don't think I'm qualified but here's to bluffing my way through it.

One of my best friends (Not Ania, before someone asks!) is facing the possibility of being diagnosed with cancer.

Do not fucking want. I've had the diagnosis before and it's not fucking fun.

Hoping for the best!
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Yeah, best of luck to him/her! Hearing that at such a young age must be pretty scary.

My landlady told me how my (very brief) housemate was awaiting a diagnosis, one GP gave her the all-clear but his assessment was wrong and he was struck off, so she has to wait for results again (probably another biopsy involved). She'd never told us but I thought not to bring it up.
