This is not going to be my day, I just know it. Got into school this morning and realised that I didn't have my school ID badge so I had to call my dad and ask if he can bring it in for me. And then I checked my ucas applictaion I had stupidly applied for the wrong course at a university, so instert about 10-15 minutes of utter panick and calling the university to see if I can change to the course that I wanted, luckily enough I still had one choice slot left on my application which the university suggested using.

So now I am absolutely frantic my hands keep shaking, and I just hope that nothing else goes wrong to day.

More Job Center shit, in short:

Trial Caring job (8 hrs), company will pay.
Company says - no pay without CRB.
So no pay for 3 weeksish.
JSA People say - hang on a minute, people shouldn't withhold pay.
JSA People don't see why they should pay anything if company doesn't pay (even though I need something to live on).
JSA people suspend my Jobseekers.

Benefit people suspend my JSA because another company can't pay me until they can legally pay me.

Reason given: No one should defer payment.

Wait. What?!

The sooner I have a job again the better.

I really hate customs charges, specifically the £8 'handling fee' what else do they do that is so special which warrents them telling me to fork out an extra £8? Foot massages? complimentary breakfasts?! Without that I'd only be owing around 3.

Who are all the fecking randoms that keep trying to add me on Skype?

Four people, none which I recognise the names from, at all.

Three not from this country. One even sent their request in French!

The American (and only female) said "I was looking for people in my area and saw you!"

HOW AM I IN YOUR AREA?!

One of them doesn't even have any details but their username.

WHO ARE YOU AND WHY ARE YOU ADDING ME?!

Ugh. I used to get that all the freaking time on MSN. Not so much on Skype now, but I feel your pain.

Which reminds me: Many years ago when I was single, I gave internet dating a try. Thanks to the site being American-owned, and based on their perception of distance, I (living in Norfolk) kept getting match suggestions in Holland!

A real double helping of shit today. I got a rejection letter today from an application I made about a month ago. They kindly told me that I will not be called for interview. It said that they had more suitable applicants. BULLSHIT! I have been doing the exact same job for 2 years! I'm better than most of the people they could get there.

Secondly, I hear back about my JSA claim and it's been rejected. Apparently I have too much money coming. COMPLETE BULLSHIT. I started claiming because I don't know when the hell I'm actually getting any work or money!

Im mega peeved off at the Jobcentre too!

I had work over the Christmas period but when my contract expired I had to sign on as normal again. No problem while signing on and all but Im having nothing but complications with money.

I wasnt well informed at all about the documents they needed to calculate the money I was entitled to, spent HOURS trying to get to them on the phone (with no luck half the time), and keep getting the whole 'well update you later' nonsense only to get nothing so I have to keep phoning them back 2 days later, I was even told to bugger off at one point because they told me I dialled the wrong number despite being the one I always dialled (I dial with extreme care you see).

When I thought 'ah goodie!' I was only given like half the amount I normally get but this week I didnt get anything at all I phoned them just now. Looks like its back to square one again! ><

I really need to get stuff sorted for a college interview this week and got wigs that need ordering! Stressed enough of that as it is!

In todays job market it is very possible to have more applicants that are better suited - as applicants for jobs will be 2/3 times higher than they would have been a few years back.
You have been doing the same job for 2 years but they may have found someone who has been doing that job who has had more experience or done other work that they feel could benefit the company with the experience they can bring in.

You are no longer trying to just battle against the people who have just recently left uni/college/school etc
You are also going up against people who have been working for a considerable number of years who have been made redundant.


My advice would be to cater your CV/cover letter to be job specific.
Give whatever information that you think would beneficial to the company/workplace.
I.e:
~ Working in an office - Give examples of working with teams, working under pressure, working to dealines, whether or not you are good with dealing with difficult people/situations etc

You need to remember the recruiters see a multitude of CV's with (for the most part) applicants saying the same things about their personalities/abilities but if you give examples then it will hook their interest more and make you stand out.

I just read this article and I remembered your post:

http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/graduate-wins-appeal-over-unpaid-103149658.html

Clearly what they're doing to you isn't right!


13 Feb 2013 - 23:1797295
^ Thank You for thinking of me =)

I got told today I was no longer wanted for the caring job, because someone with more experience had applied. I'd already been put onto payroll it seems, sent my CRB off and was due to start when the CRB came back.

</3 - I was really looking forward to caring for that little girl, we got on great during my trial period. Heart </3 broken.

I'm so angry... I had been waiting for yesterday since the end of October last year and gave my Dad's company about 4 months advance warning saying that he needed yesterday off. But no! They have to cancel his day off 2 days before the day and say 'I'm sorry, but we need you here and your daughter's social activities will have to wait!'. Well, excuse me! These 'social activities' only have ONCE A YEAR and it's what keeps me from spiraling right back into severe depression. Why. Why. WHY? Why do you have to endanger someone's sanity just because you wanted the day off because you were 'tired'. You selfish... twat. I hate those billion dollar bosses...>I hate them so much... >

This is gonna sound like a really silly thing

But I've just been told I'm gonna get a repayment of £225 - which is pretty cool. However, if this had come just a little bit earlier I would have been able to attend Minami.

So yeah, it's good, cause I had £10 to my name, but CHRIST bad timing >< I really wanted to do Minami as well!

This is just to vent some anger and frustration.

Trying to get my photography work onto a disk is proving to be a right pain in the neck. Every time I try to burn it to disk, it doesn't work it keeps saying that the disk is full when this is a completely unused blank disk. I try formating the disk but then the computer just says that it can not complete the format (school computers are rubish sometimes).

So I have to wait until I get home to try to format this stupid disk on my computer to see if that works and tommorrow I am going to bring in an extra blank disk just incase it hasn't worked.
And then I've got my teacher going "can't you burn it at home?" and I'm going "the copy that I've goty on my computer is different to the copy I've got here, and I can't put the first bit of music onto it" but in my head I'm going that is my copy that I want to keep for myself and possibly share with people.

Im sick of people sending me messages and tagging me on social media telling me how many months, weeks, days, hours, minutes it is until my wedding. It's a LONG time away, I have other stuff to stress about before I even get to stressing about wedding things!

GAH!

I've composed a workout playlist video thing on youtube of people working out for me to do watch and copy. Some of the videos there have some really good moves that I can actually do and it actually works you up them rather than going "BOOM! FECKING HARDCORE WORKOUT RAAAAAWR" thing, but she's got to have the most ANNOYING voice ever. It's like, a 30minute video, but I'm already pissed off the first minute in because she keeps going "good job!" and shit with a tone that you use to praise a fecking puppy for not peeing on the carpet, or something. I really bloody well cannot stand her voice. It's so patronizing to the point where I had to walk away.

AND RANT about it.

I have made a terrible mistake.

I accepted a friend request of a person I know, who was saying he was going through a tough time and such, just so he had someone to talk to.

However, I feel he may be a heavy cannabis user (he says he was a cannabis user, but I don't know to what extent and he says he's not smoking on doctor's orders), and he's already coming across as super paranoid; saying he's exposed corruption in the Catholic Church which is why the pope resigned, but he can't say cause he'll be killed.

He's got some legit medical conditions, but I honestly think that his issues are in relation to his habit mixed with those conditions.

I know you are just venting but I wanted to reply, unless you think the person is going to do genuine harm to themselves or others then try not to let what he's saying get to you. If he has a health condition then let's hope he has any help that he needs from professionals. Being a friend to someone with a condition like that is usually more about just listening and such which may leave you with the need to let off steam occasionally, make sure you don't let these things get you down! I wouldn't suggest becoming to involved in anything that he says because that could lead to trouble.

Ah, he "told me off" (somewhat publicly and it was rather aggressive) on the FB group (for a reason beyond me) and shortly left the group after being told off for doing so by another guy.

I've never been nervous/worried of someone on the net before, but this guy did actually rather scare me, even though he lives in Australia... It's hard to explain without copypasta, and I kinda don't want to :/

I found, the very few times I played it, it's best to know who you're playing with somehow IRL. When I played with some guys I knew, I rather enjoyed it (although I was very bad at it). When I decided to go on it alone, it was horrific.

Sorry to hear that! He needs help obviously but from professional maybe? And I'm glad this was all online and not in person :/ hope it wasn't too bad for you!!!

Stupid kids in gangs misbehaving because they know the law is on THEIR side. You know, the "Don't touch me or I'll call the police". I read about these poor teachers. The pupils know they get away with it, because they use their childish innocence to lie.
