"new" job, interview, relationships

Uncertain's picture

I got a salaried part time job for next year. A bit nervous and a bit excited at the same time. The first step towards getting a "real" job. Will still study almost full time next year. This will be a challenge but I've worked it out.

Completely unrelated: really pissed off with some people these days. Some rather selfish people and some rather self-righteous people. Even worse, the arrogant and vigilante kind. Of course, sometimes I must've also been guilty of these things - but just let me rant. At least I've become less patient with these sorts of people now I just confront them - if not I know I can afford to ignore them. But still, these people do get on my nerves. If I weren't so much a pacifist I would probably be an absolutely fucking prick to them, just because they deserve it.

Something else I want to mention but not dwelve too much time on: I was elected the vice president of my university's student union last week. I was running "independently" against the youth wing chair of a political party (presumably he would have some institutional advantage) and I got three times the votes he did! To be honest, this is a pretty big deal, and I'm still pretty stoked right now. Obviously, a lot more responsibilities now. I am entering into negotiations with the university in a few weeks. Oh, and the marriage equality bill was drawn out in Parliament the other day. Fun times ahead.

Also had my interview for a clerkship at a law firm last Firday. Waiting to hear back from them this week - not too fussed about whether I get it because I've got other things going on for me right now. But they're my favourite firm - they're the top and largest and most progressive firm (all three) in the country - so I hope I get it. But they only take nine spots a year so I'm not so sure I'll get it since I'm only in my third year.

In other news, me and my boy are going strong. I'm trying really hard to make time for him. He's so good for me, he does make me happy. We give each other our space, but I feel like we're starting to really click when we do see each other. I met his flatmates the other day and we got on well. He's also good for me in terms of my mental space and helping me consolidate who I am after a horrendous breakup - he provides the stability I need in my life I've lost for a while. I have to say I am so grateful I've met him and I'm with him.

Going to bed now. I've averaged about five/six hour sleeps for the past few weeks. Something I probably have to get used to soon...

Congrats on your election, babe.

Sounds like all is going well.

Hmm, are you going to be rich? Can you be my sugar daddy?!

I think that could be rewarding...

...but don't you have the desired roles reversed?
