Losing my job on Saturday, so need to go back on the job hunt.

Feeling lost and alone and really really shit. I just don't know what to do with my life anymore. I feel really directionless...

Hey, new year, new start right? Not that easy though =/

I'm sorry to hear about your job and I remember when I used to feel the exact same way. The only advice I can offer is try to keep working as much as you can and concentrate on the things that make you happy as much as you can.
Life will come at it's own pace, and sometimes it feels like nothing is changing or happening for you. I used to wonder where I was heading or where I'd end up and what I'd be doing, but all it takes is a moment for things to open up. New experiences, people, opportunities.
I can't offer much assistance on the job front since I'm in London, but I hope you find something soon and I hope you keep everything and everyone you love close to you throughout. They are what will keep you going.

I've been given an opportunity to work with a relative in a farm shop, however its in Nottingham. Everyone is telling me to go but I don't want to go. I have a house here with my boyfriend and I'm happy but everyone is stressing me out about this, I don't want to go but I don't have a job and its a great opportunity but what if I like it, then what, my boyfriend has a job here, does he stay do I go? I don't know what to do but I know I don't want to go. =( so confused, I'm not a career person so going away to work is something that doesn't appeal to me

What's the job like, and how badly do you need it? If you're desperate for work, and it's a proper job, maybe go and trial it for a short period? I wouldnt move permanently for part time or low paid work unless I absolutely needed the money, especially since you're already in your own place.

I don't know much about it and I don't desperately need the money, we don't pay mortgage or rent on our house so we pay each £60 a month for bills, it'll be a chef job which is what I have qualifications in but I'm looking for waiting work not kitchen...

You guys still here?

How're ya'll doin'?



I got turned down from one of the biggest most pivotal points in my career.
Because although I know more than anyone else and I gave the best interview.. their reason was that "You don't seem like you're hungry enough for it, we're unsure you perform to your maximum capabilities."

I got turned down for being so good at what I do, that I make it look easy.

Well ain't that a ball buster.

Had a bit of a bitchy moment earlier, round an hour ago.

I got my Amber Bailey cosplay from CosplayFU which I commissioned and I wanted to try it on, but it kept getting tangled with everything as well as the velcro kept on attatching itself to the material and my hair which hurt like hell.

Eventually I took it out on my mom which I shouldn't have done, but I guess I got lost in the moment of being bitchy, anyway it fits and it's fine.

I just saw this:

Guess where it was filmed and when. Give up? It was at Excel on the last weekend of October...

This piece of crap pretty much ruined that weekend.

In my last five months of university and the amount of work they keep giving out is ridiculous. I know I'm on a creative arts course (photography & digital design) but having a 8000 word essay, two portfolios, a promotional package plus paperwork and a two gallery shows in London & Manchester before the end of June is really overwhelming. Just happy to have cosplay and other things going on in my life that I can turn to to just relax and unwind when the stress gets to much.

I hate it when people are dicks to you, then try to be nice because they want something, then proceed to be horrible to you after they've gotten what they wanted.
Seriously, if someone calls you selfish and stupid in the space of five minutes, what the hell thinks they're going to help you? Get a frickin' reality check fast!

mini rant/vent here.

Saw that there was a reply to the picture I took of the Amber Bailey cosplay, someone said "fucking eww" which caused me to go off on one, thankfully I've blocked the person who has said that to me via Deviantart, however I will delete the pic until I get a better picture itself as I was wearing my pyjamas underneath the dress at the time.

God, I hate it when some people are right dicks.

Bob Crow is a greedy asshole. That is all.

You of course know that strikes cannot be called without balloting the union membership, and reciving a majority vote supporting the strike.

Crow might be a hypocritical, greedy, anti-EU git, but he and his cronies can't force a strike through all on his own.

EDIT: I'm pissed off by the BS the UK media tend to spout about union action.

When I was a union activist, we balloted a strike over a proposed 0% cost-of-living pay increase (after 4 years of pay freeze), and a change to pensions that rewarded managers and screwed the average worker. And the newspapers and TV news went with headlines about how we were striking over "pay bonuses".

2014 in general.

Been feeling very down and bored since finishing my contract at work just before the New year. Havent had much motivation for anything lately really and since I was given the news that a friend lost his life a month ago I have been fighting insomnia so my routine is pretty messed up and I am still having 5am bedtimes.

I have been having a hard time feeling that I could speak up much of anything because all I seem to get are 'deal with it' or I get treated like there is a off switch for how I have been feeling lately where when my other friends have problems they seem to help eachover out. Seems like its because I dont talk about my hardships as much. Yes I do appear calm and laid back most of the time but most people seem to forget that I am literally a constant worrier.

The time is ticking and I am praying things will get better for Kitacon. Still got lots to do for that.

The less than 30% turnout for the vote tells me otherwise...

Tube staff are just greedy and incompetent. They say it's about job losses and ticket halls but that's just BS really. It's always about padding their wallets. They will probably get yet another fucking pay rise they don't deserve out it.

Have you considered going to a doctor to ask to speak to someone for counselling if you don't receive any already? There's always counsellors specifically for grief if you feel that can help you. Losing a loved one is really hard, and its even harder when you dont have someone who can listen to you and take what you say seriously. Everyone deserves to have a ear available if they need it and it's not fair for people to think that their problems are more important to the point they cant give you the support you need,
Definitely enjoy Kitacon though! The last few months haven't been too great for a few people I know, myself included so it's a great opportunity to kick back, socialise and have fun!

It was worse than that. The report I just found says 60% abstained. That's not failing to vote. That's deliberately stating you are neither for or against the motion. (I know you know that, I'm explaining for anyone else reading this)

And that doesn;t make sense. With a voting block that large they could have overruled Crow's followers. I can't see what the real issue is here.

The election was probably fixed anyway. That's why.

Im slowly getting back on me feet I think but thanks for the advance Ill keep that in mind. My parents seemed to have forgotten that it was the first time losing someone this close and it's even more tough knowing he had feelings for me a few years ago but we still stayed as good friends. Really didnt help when my mother was talking to one of her old work colleagues and talking about death as if it was a normal and happy conversation on the afternoon I was meeting our mutual friends for the first time we were given the news.

Hope thing get better for you too ^^

Hopefully the only thing that will worry me closer to Kitacon is getting my costumes finished lol

Had a phone call in the afternoon to inform me that I have been invited to attend an interview to see if im eligible to go on an apprenticeship. I should be head over heels over it but for some reason I am really nervous! Still trying to gather the courage to reply to send an email as I might feel more confident face to face.

well I feel the need to rant about Showmasters and London Film And Comic Con.

All week they had a thread up in the LFCC and others saying "Friday 7th Feburary - Big Exciting Announcement at 6pm" and we all including myself had many guesses with mine being the most logical - Ghostbusters 30th anniversary and it would be cool to get Dan Ackroyd and others in for the con to celebrate the actual anniversary. It came and was announced...but it wasn't what we were expecting...

SHERLOCK-CON

Fucking what? You HAD to put that into many parts of the forum just to say "Oh we're getting a sherlock based convention going" and literally shit on people and laughing at the same time?

I swear that if I didn't already have the tickets, I would have just not bothered with London Film And Comic Con as well as Newcastle Film And Comic Con and I could have used the money to pay for a deposit to Orlando FL for two weeks!

I've noticed that Showmasters really like making these single franchise events that run for one year. I don't really had to LFCC as it seems like after getting guests to sign stuff, everything else is an afterthought.
