So it’s the beginning of my summer break and I feel like all my motivation to do anything really, is gone. Before I came home, I had a sort of plan for this summer, but I haven’t started doing anything – really – that I had planned.
I did buy my brother’s birthday present and the stuff for my ritual. I also had a small get together last Sunday, with some of my friends, it was sort of an impromptu thing, since we’ve been trying to get together for weeks, but everyone was busy with work and revision and exams. So when on Sunday morning one of my friends said she had messed up her work schedule, so we decided it was a good idea to just meet up that evening and do some planning for Cornwall and day trip over the summer, but unfortunately we just ended up getting drunk and chatting about tit and tat, even though we did try doing some planning and then again in the morning. But it was really nice seeing them all again and all that jazz.
I also get my first vibrator this week, so that was… fun. I posted this whisper – for those of you that don’t know what whisper is, it’s an app – about it and I got 29 messages within the first minute of posting it, most of them were dirty in one way or another and then there was one that wanted to know about my buying experience, because their ‘friend’ wanted to get one.
So my buying experience, was alright a guess, I got one from Durex, because I more or less trust that company, since I didn’t want to get a crappy one, although it did set me back a pretty penny, but I think it more or less worth it. But there is so much out there, I didn’t know what to get, so I just got a simple basic one, since it’s my first one and all that jazz.
Since I bought all the supplies for my ritual on Sunday – even with the whole no banking thing, I’ve been hurt by that damn rule before – stuff has been arriving all week and one of the crystals I got came with a little booklet thing, about how to cleanse and energise and encode – I think they used a different word perhaps program – the crystal, so since I thought it would be a good idea to do all my crystals together and since one of them can’t be put in water or salt, I decided that I would use the herb method to remove negative energy, so I’ve buried 2 of my stones in sage and I’ll add the rest when they come. I don’t think I’m going to program them really, since I’m not sure right now what I want to… put into them, since I’m using them as representatives and what not.
I still haven’t found a job, but I applied to this site to be a website tester, well I applied to 2, but I can’t get one of them to work, because of a problem with my Java, so I’m going to ask the father about it, when he comes down at the weekend, to see if that can be fixed, but I applied to the other site so hopefully that will all go through fine, because they pay quite well apparently, and it looks like I’m not going to be able to get a ‘proper’ job this summer, so I’ve got some free time on my hands, apart from the ritual and the new exercise plan I’m trying to get into, because I want to get toned this summer and I’ve got 2 months – Including this one – to do it, because I’m going to Cornwall with the girls in 2 months, so I’m trying to get toned by then, I don’t think 2 months is an impossible goal, since I don’t have much else to do, apart from try and make a little money, oh and of course looking after the house, since the father is still trying to sell it, so there is going to be people round. I did want to do a whole bunch of things this summer, but the desire to save and lack of planning, leads to not much planned to do. Hopefully we’ll work that out, since we did stuff last summer and that was fun, although most of my friend have work planned – lucky ducks – although I’m not giving up on the work just yet, I’ve applied to a bunch more and hopefully will find something, since the perfect for me dog walking job went in a snap, just shows you should apply right away. But yeah I’m still looking, there’s just not really anything for someone like me.
My friend did say she would have a look to see if the place where she works will take me, but I’m not super hopeful, plus I don’t think I will be that good there or really like it, but if I can I will.

I’m also planning on doing some writing this summer, since I’ve only written one thing – Angels for flesh – in a long time, maybe even a year now. I’m also hoping to enter some writing competitions.
So yeah, if you have any tips for a student that is job hunting or a job that you think I could do or something ANYTHING! then feel free to let me know about it.
As the job search continues and it’s not like there isn’t jobs out there, there just isn’t any jobs that I can do, because everyone wants experience and how can I get experience if I can’t do the job to get the experience of doing it? Although there are a couple I’m looking at, but by the time I’ve paid for transport, I won’t be getting any money, because they pay minimum wage and the price of the bus ticket is exceedingly high in Hereford, at least the one from Madley to Hereford seems to be. I mean it’s about 3x the price of a one here in Bournemouth, so I thought I might be able to ask for transport money, but I think most places won’t be into doing that, but I’m going to try. There are a couple positions in care homes around the place, but once again travel. I now truly wish I had learnt to drive before this point and so transport might not have been as big an issue.
Although I’m not sure if the father has sold my brother’s old moped, so maybe I can commandeer that for a month or two. But I’m not sure about insurance and all that jazz, also I don’t think it’s very good, as in it used to break down every time it rained and the fuel is probably exceeding expensive as well – we’ll see when I get back home, if that works out, until then… more hunting.
Plus then there’s the full time jobs, which I can’t apply for because I’m looking for a part time job right now, although it’s nice to know that there are psychology related jobs around this area, as I might be returning after university and will most diffidently need a full time job then to pay the bills, because I don’t want to just go and live with the father and do nothing with my days. But that’s in the future, I need to find a part time job now and all this less than fruitful searching is making me frustrated, it seems that every time I find a job I can do and sounds good for me, it’s in another city and so I can’t do it and then the ones near by are all looking for people with experience, although there was one that was offering training on the job, but it didn’t state where it was, so I’m going to have to ring them up, completely dreading that, because I’m not so good over the phone, really. I’d much rather e-mail them about the job, but everywhere wants you to ring first and all that jazz.
