Double take

I managed to bump into Jess (D) and Jordy (Her friend from tafe) this morning on the train. I was rather surprised as they aren’t usually that early. Jordy was infront of me all the way from Lilydale and I didn’t realise (I have met her before). I was in blissful oblivion perhaps?

Insanely happy this morning – I don’t know why, maybe something to do with yesterday. I was a little reluctant to leave it (this rare euphoria) to talk to them. But seeing Jess was great, had a good talk – as much of one as you can have on a train anyway.

And the strangeness, I get on the train this afternoon and who should appear but Jess and Jordy again. What are the chances of that?!

Another double of the day:

Washed my hair twice in a row this evening. I do it occasionally. I entirely forget (yeh my mind goes even more haywire in strange places like the shower) until I dump the shampoo out. Or I am there doing the ‘Have I, haven’t I?” and usually give up and just do/redo it. I have a terrible memory for some things. Entirely blank.


Worked. Very receptionist type stuff, filing, photocopying, coffee, phones.

I also found out I probably wont have a job there next year, due to Mel coming on full time (we semi jobshare).
I don’t mind too much.
MBO has been a wonderful place to work, I scored a jackpot in it being a ‘first job’.
I confess wont mind the better pay and less travel time I can hopefully find elsewhere.

Dad mentioned that school has a job opening shortly (ie: applications) for a ‘graphics person’ to do newsletters (that really aren’t too bad) and other such things like school magazine. (Hey, guess who did the last one?! – mind you that was just Yr.12) They know me, and I have a very good foot in the door already. It’s 3mins drive from home. I know the people. I like the place (yeah sort of :P). Plenty of creative licence. The idea of it is VERY appealing.

The problem: 2 full days a week (maybe negoitable), and not knowing what’s happening with uni timetabling etc… yet – I don’t have much to go on regarding that.
I’d also have to contest with those with maybe more training than me applying for the job although, that’s less of a problem methinks.

Anyway. We shall see. I’d probably better pray about it. (maybe you could too 🙂

I really don’t want another ‘phoneish’ job. MBO is fairly light on that, but zero in the phone department would be like a ladder down from being stuck on a roof for me.

More later maybe.

    Oh my gosh Bec! I totally do the shower thing too… just being lost in your own little world, and forgetting trivial details like whether or not you’ve had a shower… so true! (just so you know you’re not the only forgetful doofus)
    Hmm… the job sounds gooooood!
