Today I was at a job interview. I hate job interviews.

Not great, but that's fine. Got a message that I'm invited to a second interview for another job, so hopefully that will go well.

I hate applications more than interviews for jobs. I don't know why I bothered writing a CV since every employer seems to want its entire contents written up separately in a website application.

I'm lucky in that I have my SO to help me with the applications, because I suck at them.

Ain't that the truth.


In other news I had to do a test where I invited a bunch of first year students and let them solve assignments. A total of 3 people showed up. :cry2:

Assignments I had made that were exam related. The test was basically them solving the assignments and answering a couple of surveys along the way.

Played Dungeons and Dragons today, been way too long since the last time. So much fun :D

What's the issue? I find setting concrete goals helps a lot when trying to work towards something. Making them really specific too.

Or it could be this advice is totally unnecessary and it's something else entirely that you are struggling with.

Am I wrong in thinking Budapest is likely the place where that ad might get answered?

I wouldn't even know where to begin. I don't have the time or energy to work towards anything.
It's too late go start again.
