Outgoing ready for tomorrow

Well, even thought I’ve been on Annual Leave from work this passed week I haven’t really done anything in terms of all the mail I’ve got to catch up except write a few letters in the last couple of days. I just didn’t really feel like writing too much what with the nice weather and need to relax and let my hair down a bit. But I have the writing bug once again :D

I think I actually posted this one to Bethan over a week ago now though :S

After the most stressful day yesterday, only made worse by the fact that there were only a couple of places left on the MSc out of a tiny 20 places, with 6 people being interviewed for those places :S

I got my offer today.

I’m in!

And I also got the placement area I was happy with, the only other one available would have meant travelling miles to get to work placements at 6-7am in the mornings, as I don’t actually drive this would have made it incredibly awkward (Public transport can be so totally unreliable these days!). Still miles to travel but at least I know the areas I’m going and I know the transport services to get there will be semi-reliable. All in all, a big sigh of relief!

So…

Bring on the following 2 years of being incredibly poor and over worked with no time what so ever for a social life!

:D

(As of tomorrow I shall resume with my normal mail related updates)

 

 

OK OK OK!….great news right? :-/

So 30 minutes ago I got a call…

About my MSc Application…

I have an interview consisting of panel interview, group discussion, literacy and numeracy tests from 9am all the way to 3pm NEXT WEDNESDAY! That’s like only 6 days! :'(

IT’S TOO SOON!!!

I only put in my finalised application with all the bells and whistles on Monday!

Agrhh!

(Below please find the visual representation of me and my emotions in the 5 minutes following said phone call)

I feel that this aptly depicts the current mood that followed..

Man I need to go get a nice suit :(

Well I mean I need some new nice formal trousers to go with my epic ‘Beetle Juice’ shirt.

I feel a pencil skirt will be inappropriate this time.
