Do you like my photo for tonight’s post? I took it on our last morning in Ibiza last year, probably around 5am, overlooking the sea and the swimming pool. It’s hard to believe this time 5 weeks I’ll be back there!
Tonight’s thoughts are on work and jobs. Now, if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll have seen that I had a job interview back on 3rd June. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the job. However, last week I received a phone call asking me to an interview for TEPO Consultancy Belfast. The interview was the morning and…. I’m back for a second interview tomorrow! Well I think it’s tomorrow, the email said (and I quote) “…on being invited back to spend the day with us on 14 GIUG 16 alle 11;45…”
Now is it me or is that in a different language? Getting distracted, sorry. The main point in this was to ask, is it bad that I really don’t want to go for the second interview? I know nothing about the company, or the position I am applying for. It’s in an awkward place to get to. I don’t know if I should really be complaining, I mean a job is a job but really I could see this one far enough. Why can’t I just get work in a simple shop?
After my interview today, I was walking back to the train station when my ankle gave way and I fell to the ground. Everyone around me carried on their daily business except for two homeless guys who immediately rushed over to help me to my feet, insisting I sit down until I’m sure I’m okay again. The worst part was, as I stood up, I realised I had no way of thanking these two men for their help. I had no cash on me, and there was nowhere nearby I could even offer to get them a coffee or soup from. Even now I feel horrible about it. If they’re still there in the morning then I’ll buy them a breakfast roll or something… Just a shame we don’t have a Gregg’s nearby, and none of the coffee shops offer a “pay it forward” system. Maybe that’s what I should do if I fail university, set up a small independent coffee shop that either offers a “pay it forward” scheme or a buy one give one free system. Would you go to an independent shop if they offered this? Let me know in the comments below!
