Day 33 and in the dumps

Hi all, I am on day 33 now, I know I will make it through to the end of the day, but I seem to be relating everything to cigarettes ! I am feeling very low.

I applied for a job a week ago and am getting upset because I have not heard a word from them, I still have two days to go before I can give up on it, All I keep doing is thinking thats it, I am not gonna get an interview. Walking round the house bored (atm I only work one day a week) there is plenty to do in the house but I just can't be bothered.

I was going to take George out, then it rained so he can't go out. The house is dark and quiet, I really don't want to spend all my time in the house alone, I am so fed up!

Gonna try pacing round the house again!

  • Hi,

    Try not to let it get to you. The job will either be yours or not be yours whether you smoke or not. You've done the right thing by posting and ranting on here x

  • Hi Little Ol' You,

    I'm assuming George isn't your hoover? Our hoover's called George, the last one was called Mike (Mike Dyson).

    I'm a believer that stuff happens for a reason so please don't get too focussed on whether or not you get the job. I know that's easy to say from the outside; can't help it, it's just the way I think it is.

    I've been in the same scenario as you, we all deal with it in the same way. I wouldn't recommend my method (although it worked for me).

    Walking is always a goodun when stuff isn't going great. Grabbing George and going for a good ramble may just be what's needed.

  • Great that you said that you'll hang on to the end of the day...it's important to be positive even when everything is trying to drag you down.

    TBH applying for jobs can be a complete shitter...one puts so much of themselves into applications and despite everything starts to have hopes if not expectations. Then those bastard HR folk * put you on a rack and take there sweet time of it...fek!

    I'm one of those that know who George is but not quite understanding why he can't go out in the rain. Is it too difficult to work him in the rain? You are the expert and know what's best....I'm just still so intrigued by it all.

    Littleoleme, it'll get better for you...it has to. So, stick with things and I promise things will turn 'round to your favour again.

    Keep on keepin' on,

    Cav

    *If there are any HR folk here...apologies :o

    I must get round to Posting about George and how he 'works' I will try my best tonight or tomorrow

  • Hi Littleome, how about next time you're pacing the house to put some music on a make it a bit more interesting.

    I was also wondering why you can't take George out in the rain?

    Good luck on the job, I hope you hear soon, these people forget what it was like when they were applying for jobs with all the waiting and wondering.

    Fingers cross for sunshine tomorrow so you and George can get out there.

    Hang on, you are doing great, 33 days is surely something to smile about :D

    Lorraine :)

    I hope tomorrow is brighter for you.

    New post called 'Why I can't walk George in the Rain' in the general section.

    Happy to answer questions! I could talk about him all day long!
