"Here's a thing: when "Firefly" was cancelled, my heart got broke. Sounds a bit much, but it changed me. Not even "Serenity" could patch that wound." -Joss Whedon

Poor thing!

I didn't realize till yesterday how completely and totally my self asteem is based on whether or not I feel I'm doing something worthwhile, or something at all. I didn't get another job yesterday, and I got all completely depressed. It feels like I'll never get a job, cause I'm just not good enough. [livejournal.com profile] aj_stalin believes that there's this evil guy going to all my interviews right before me and getting the jobs instead of me. Of course, he'd have to be like that guy from X-men 3 who can multiply himself so that I'd never get a job, and then his evil plan will be set in motion (and I'm frightened to think of what it might be).

Well, I'll keep trying, and keep going, and hopefully I'll get a lovely job in retail. Sigh!

I get all sentimental nowadays, thinking of how things used to be when I was younger vs now. And suddenly this meme popped up on millsnill's lj, how are you now vs how you were 5 years ago. Naturally I had to take it.

I still feel bad that I don't have a job. Turns out its really hard to get a job at a cafe without a barrista certificate, and it's nearly impossible to get a job as a reseptionist without experience so meet Martine: a bachelor in history and the only jobs I'm really capable of doing are in retail. I feel really bad actually, but I'll try not to rain on your parade too much. Soon I'll have some sort of job, I'm sure, and then I'll be able to pay rent and buy that computer and eat well. It'll work out.

That's it. I've spent another morning applying for jobs. I'm tired of it, it takes a lot of time, and I just don't have any more energy. I'm gonna need a montage. I need to fade out, there has to be a lot of stills of me applying, dressing for job interviews, getting tired of trying and then finally finding my perfect job. But the beauty of a montage would be that that would take about one and a half minute, and not actual weeks. I want a job! A secure job! A job that paid me enough to both eat and pay rent! Somebody turn my life into a tv-show so that I can get a montage. Pretty please?

On a different note. My new apartment needs partying and thus we need a housewarming party. This will take place next Saturday so make sure you're all there (the ones that don't actually live in Oslo are of course excused, but only barely)! Loss of limb is an okay excuse also, or death, but that's about it. I wanna fill this place up with nice people and party.
I hate not having a job. The only thing I'm less comfortable with is applying for jobs. I feel that aetat (the unemployment office) should have an easy, updated and user-friendly system. They, however, do not agree. So, now I've spent approximately two hours just getting registered as an unemployed. Now I'm too tired and frustrated to apply for jobs. Crap.

I love you guys for being so supportive and nice to me! Thank you! (Eva, I miss you in trondheim)

On a different note, I've just found my hero! The guy who quit his job and traveled all over the world doing a silly dance and getting subsidised by a gum to let him travle more! I'm serious. The guy got to travle to where ever for free. Besides, he's cool. You guys have to see this:

I wish I could travle all over the world. Then I wouldn't mind not having a job. At least I'd have something to do.

So, my boss decided to not put me up for work this week, even though I have a right of at least two days a week of work written into my contract. This means I'm unemployed a week early, and even more poor than I would have expected. I probably could have argued a bit about it, but seeing how I love being able to spend my days on hanging out with people (and moving), I'm actually happy I didn't have to work. [livejournal.com profile] aj_stalin we have to hang out!

It is scary being without employment however. I have not been totally unemployed since I was 14. Mind reeling...
