I did it. It's over. I FINALLY quit the Leadmill (along with pretty much everyone else!) It's the weirdest feeling ever, being "unemployed" again. I mean, I'm not REALLY unemployed, I know full well if I wanted to I could earn more in a week being freelance than I could in the Leadmill, but to all intents and purposes, I don't have any responsibility to any company now, and no timescale to work to. It's ace. Not becoming dole scum, I don't think I could handle that, I'm not good with feeling indebted and needy (emotionally or any other way, but we'll see where this post takes us.) Had 2 interviews for officey adminy type jobs, one of which went appallingly (but it was my 1st interview ever, so i forgave myself... eventually), the second went quite well (but still didn't get it, but positive things anyway) Gonna go home for a couple of weeks on Monday, spend some time with my family and enjoy ythe downtime, because as it is, I just feel constantly stressed and tired, always with something else to sort out. A few pancakes and homemade lasagnes should hopefully make me feel a bit better about myself in general, feeling a bit down and drained and emo, and don't like it one bit!
In other news, I turned 24 last Tuesday in a massive car crash of booze and bruises (the one on my knee is going down a BIT, but it's still pretty!) Added them all up, and from dancing and drunkness, had about 40 bruises all over me by Tuesday morning, (including a mightily impressive arse one, damn Corp poles!) Got to see lots of people I haven't got to spend much time with, which was nice, and it culminated with me, Chris, Liv, Beth, Nikki and Owen going to a vegan restaurant on Abbeydale Road and me not getting freaked out by the copious amounts of veg! Be impressed people, be impressed!
Dancing still continues to make me very happy, like flying around in your dreams when you were 5. Suffering severe muscle ache at the moment though, I think I might have to start reassessing my priorities and try and balance out the poling with some kind of exercise routine, given my only exercise seems to be an hour of hanging myself upsidown with my knees! Bad for muscles. Supposed to be doing a competition in Lincoln in a few weeks, but kinda reconsidering it at the moment, haven't really got a routine together yet and only have a 1 lesson after I get back.... it's a lot of time and money to spend to do something half-assed, and beginning to worry I'm getting tendonitis in my forearms. Probably could do without the stress as well. Will be sad not to do it, was starting to look forward to it, and it would be nice to spend the day getting to know other people who don't laugh at me when I say I've got into pole dancing. We'll see.
Well, that's me over and out after a ramble of saying nothing. Will try and keep this factually updated, I could probably use a record of the job hunting (and a space to vent given very few of my friends really use LJ anymore!)
