As I think most of you know, I’ve been (unsuccessfully) looking for jobs in Sydney for the past couple of months. Work has become nigh untenable and this little unit of mine has too much history attached to it. Money wasn’t too much of an issue until I lost one of my cleaning jobs, which has basically sent me back to where I was just after I broke up with my boyfriend – with the exception that at least I’m up to date with my bills now. Loath to get back in the same position I had a wee meltdown on Friday night, and decided that I’d move to Sydney without a job, to live with my cousin (who’s in a similar position to me, and this was all part of the bigger plan), and just spend every day there searching for something, anything because at least my unit would be paying for itself with rent. I’ve spent a lot of the past weekend starting to pack up my house, and yesterday organised with mum and dad that I’ll briefly move back in with them before heading to Sydney, as any money in is a very good thing, and will only help the money situation.


So, tonight I called my cousin to let her know that our plans were moving forward only to hear that her boyfriend has asked her to move in with him. Gentle reader, I flipped. Non-gentle reader, I flipped the fuck out.  This was something that I had finally made a really positive step with, finally took a hold of my damn life to make it work for me and hearing that the one stable part of my plan had gone just sent me over the edge. Calming down, I called my cousin back a couple of hours later to find out that her wonderful boyfriend had even included me in his plans for them moving in together. Soon as I beat the word “gaylord” out of him, he’ll be fairly close to perfect, I think.


So, the plan at the moment is that I’ll be putting the unit up for rent next Monday and moving back into mum and dad’s as soon as I get a tenant. I have my last day at work picked out for maximum tax benefit and I’ll be going down to Sydney shortly thereafter. So for the next couple of weeks at least, I’ll be even more absent then what I have been lately. I am the human canker sore however, (thanks [ profile] nombrehetomado ) and you won’t be rid of me completely. I adore you all, and have tried to end this three times but it got too sappy, so I’ll just say, that’s all, for now.

Oh yeah I can use this for things other than ranting and fics and memes, can't I?

Still haven't had any bites on the job front, and I'm getting a little down because of it. I know I could do all of these jobs on my ear but apparently I'm missing something in my applications. I'm also having so, so many regrets about my life at the moment, looking back I'm eight years out of school this year, and I have so little to show for it in some ways. Yes I own my unit (well, me and the bank), but I have nothing to prove that I have the brains I know are lurking in there somewhere. I don't exactly regret leaving university, but maybe if I'd thought about things a little more and believed in my own self-worth a little more then I'd be in a better position now.

Anyway, enough of this maudlin shit. I'm heading up the coast to see a whole bunch of relatives this weekend, including my cousin who lives in Canada who I haven't seen in ten years. The last time I saw her Elvis was cracking on to me. There's a story there, but that's for another day. So I'll be disappearing for the weekend, but what it also means is that I'll have 12 hours total being driven up to my grandparents so I can do some writing. Which I have been missing so much lately, because with the exception of the Treehouse Hooker!Verse, which ate my brain and would not let go, I haven't had the time nor the inclination. I have about half a dozen kink meme fills sitting there, iPod meme fills and one original idea. Yay, huzzah and etc.

That's about enough from me, but because I feel it needs to be repeated often and loudly: you are some of the most amazing people I've ever had the privilege to meet and don't you all forget it.

Love me, love me, say that you love me

Anon holiday meme? Yes please.

Also, Christmas in retail gets worse every stinkin' year. My only New Year's resolution is that I won't be there next year.
