Having to get the bus to work instead of just being able to walk, is really starting to grate on me. So much so that we're going to move closer to my new job so I can walk it.... and we currently live in a shit area.

I forgot to do something at work yesterday, remembered at 11pm last night, had to then ring my colleague tell her that both of us had to be in by 5am to fix and go straight to bed. Feel surprisingly okay now.

Only two weeks left at my job, gutted. Got a job interview next week but can guarantee I'll be too nervous for it and not get the job.

On the plus side, I'm 23 today, yay. And work paid for me to do a web design course, so at least that's something to keep me going.

The way to beat job interview nerves is through preparation. The more you research, prepare, and think through the possible questions you might get hit with, the less nervous you'll be when you actually get them.

On my 23rd birthday I turned up at Jilly's Rock Club in Manchester and at the exact moment I reached the dancefloor, "What's my age again?" by Blink-182 started playing, with the classic refrain "Nobody likes you when you're 23". Perfect.

It's got nothing to do with your age, Kenny...

And what he meant to say Kirsty was Happy (belated) Birthday!

Actually he already said it on Facebook, and it wasn't belated, either.

Are you getting scared about Tough Guy yet, Pete?

Worked for 15 hours yesterday, then went out until the early hours, then slept in the office, waking up at 6am and starting work again, off out for a run at lunch. I am quite clearly already the embodiment of Tough Guy and needn't fear anything.

Ha ha thanks Pete, and Kenny.

I can't imagine having to sleep at work, that must really suck.

In fairness, my bosses have converted our 4th and 5th floor into a nice flat, so it's not all bad.

Still, the idea of work taking over your life to the extent that provision is made for people to stay there is one that doesn't quite sit right with me.

Yeah, this has been very much a bad month, normally do standard 8.30 - 5.30 days and still have plenty of time (hence my post count!) but this month has seen us start a load of new things whilst I'm still trying to train my new minion, which has meant i've been getting a bit flogged. Should quieten down in a week or so.

Back in the UK after my travels. Feels very weird.

Start Uni tomorrow and still need to find a place to live which is proving harder than I thought..

I had a dream last night that amongst other things involved seeing The Xcerts playing a gig on a train. Bit odd.
