..discovered that on top of my pc, underneath my desk is a nice dark nook to hang out.

Then I discovered that the on/off switch of the pc is on the top corner and that she can indeed step on it.

And that I just lost a really long post I'd made in notepad because it started as a small scribble.

Bah. Evil.
I'm waiting for the shop downstairs to heat up enough that I get warm as well. I've recently discovered that my heating wasn't coming on at all and it was still 24-25 degrees; seems that's a freebie from downstairs. I'm grateful, as it's a much more even heat as when my own heating comes on. And 24-25 is a perfect temp if I'm spending most of the day sitting still working.
Does mean that I'm currently in my 'define interesting' hoodie sweatshirt, with a HWB in my back, and STILL feeling cold in a 20c room. Does that seem right to you?
I have suddenly started coughing with that deep chest cough that feels like I'm trying to choke fire out of my lungs. OW DAMNIT.
Had trouble getting up, didn't get as much done as I should have, raging screaming back pain - urgh.
Thinkgeek postage. Why is it so damn high? I get like 30 dollars postage quoted for 2 t-shirts. That's ridiculous.

Let it rain

[cut long whinge about being at home, bored, aching, and burned out on writing]

I guess in the end I have a problem with feeling purposeless, and I'm working on that. I always have to feel like I've accomplished something at the end of the day.

It kind of sucks that I'm wanting the summer holiday to be over already. Hasn't turned out to be much of a summer for me..
Feels like life is really bashing me over the head right now. This morning I was fired from my callcenter job. It was work I genuinely enjoyed and am good at... it's probably also the only type of work I can physically do at the moment. They fired me for my 'negative attitude' (at work, not to customers), which I admit I did have at times - they had some weird ways of treating us and I can't just keep my mouth shut when that sort of thing goes on. Most of what they put down to my negative attitude however, was due to pain, trying to deal with pain, and asking not to be put back on a certain kind of work (*) due to pain. Not once was I warned, and not once when I exhibited these behaviours did someone so much ask "Hey, what's up?"

Having it written down like that, I can live with it. It pisses me off and I'll complain to the agency of course, but this job is a blip on the radar screen of my life. Shame of the money though.

*) They made me scan documents all day. Repetitive motion. My RSI has flared up.

Ramble On

It's another one of those posts - I don't feel organised enough to do proper posting. Work started friday, and with minimal training we were put on the line.. which was a bit scary, and of course my second call was a super-complicated nightmare from a customer who didn't have their facts straight. Thankfully my supervisor offered to take that one off my hands. All in all it wasn't as bad as I feared, but I'm still restless and stressed about going back tomorrow.

Spent the weekend at [livejournal.com profile] sessifet25 which was lovely.

I'm actively looking for living space now, which is equal parts fun and weird. I am beginning to get used to the idea though and starting to look forward to the reality of it. Right now it looks most likely that I'll end up in Wageningen - locationwise Ede would be more practical, since it's close to the horse and the connection to Utrecht is better, but Wageningen has the kind of shared house I am looking for.

I went to the chiropractor last tuesday, felt better for 2 days, but it's back with a vengeance. Crap, this really hurts.

I'm still not writing. It's weird and unpleasant not to have a project going.

I thought the headcold was gone, so I resumed life as normal, and now it's back.. And I have an out-of-Lemsip error *sulk*

Whinge tag

I've been trying to instill tags on this here journal, and one of them is a whinge tag. Now I have it, I might as well use it.

Had a lovely long ride with Rowan ('e so fluffy! 'e so kyooot!). Got home. Ate. Need to start preparing for exams. Soon. Feeling down tonight for no clear reason. Also need to arrange 8-week trip to Andalucia this week. And go to the gym a bunch of times. And send out some email with risks of rejection. *sigh*

On the upside though, my tallship convertees are faring well... [livejournal.com profile] happydisciple had a great time on the Prince William despite gale force winds and seasickness and not actually being under sail once. And [livejournal.com profile] torn_eledhwen has signed on to the Stad Amsterdam today for the transatlantic. I recommended the ship to her, so naturally I'm eager to hear the stories :-)

(It's not a substitute for sailing myself, but it's still cool!)
