For one of my modules this year one of the assessments is a mock interview for which we have to prepare a CV and cover letter, I missed the deadline for these as I was in hospital having my appendix out but submitted them asap afterwards.

Today I had the interview, and as I was ready to walk in one of the lecturers was all like we don't have your CV or Cover letter, when we tried to print them out all we got was a broken link. So I then had to run back to mine to print the Cover Letter and CV off again, then pretty much run back to have my interview. The interview went alright apart from one bit where one of the lecturer's picked up on the fact that I didn't talk about why I wanted to work for that company or didn't list the companies name on the Cover Letter or anything. Well the job description just simply stated 'a company', but despite explaining this four times to the guy he still didn't couldn't understand the point I was trying to make and then when I got the mark back it had the comment (C1 - 75% Excellent CV and letter (should add address of either company or recruitment agency). So he clearly didn't understand it or read the description himself.

I also got a 5% grading penalty for not including a cover sheet, I'm pretty sure I didn't in the original submission but still the link was broken which is not my fault and I was only asked to print off the cover letter and cv again...so will be sending a ragey email to the module coordinator about it to see if I can get the grade bumped up.
I'm running 1000km (6 Marathons, 26 Half Marathons & 20 10ks) this year so sponsor me ya bastards!

What are you studying? We never had any of that, but then you're probably doing a useful degree.

Facebook snafu.

I was late for work on Wednesday and made my time up by skipping a dinner break and starting an hour early on Thursday and Friday by agreement of the manager. So I left half hour early today. Now I'm in trouble with the manager for buggering off early because I hadn't asked him. He wants a talk on Monday. Fair enough, I'm in the wrong. Annoying though.

One of those days at work when everyone is calling and emailing you wanting you to sort out everything in the world right at that moment in time.

I was wanting the day to end so much that now I am home I don't know what to do with myself. I have a pile of washing and some scraps of food to make a meal out of. The only way to make this eve more exciting is hoping people want to go to the pub, or go to the gym (to sit in the hot tub, fuck working out haha)

"I wonder if the French know that Omaha is an American word, oh well, I'm OK with them using it as the name for that D-Day landing beach"

Went to try and get an early(ish) night just after midnight, woke up after barely more than an hour and now can't get back to sleep. Bastard.
