Re: Update: frustration

Re: With the good comes the bad....

Angry Update: frustration

Well, I've been back since Feb 28th and I still haven't found a job. :( I've applied for quite a few, mostly with the council, and even had a few interviews, but nothing. It's getting incredibly...

A bit odd......

Before I got back to the UK, I had been steeling myself for every single member of my family (immediate and otherwise) to say I was stupid to come back. And do you know what? Not one of them has....

Re: Today feels a bit weird

I know how you feel. My dog knew something was going on also, once my apartment started getting more and more empty.

As for your belongings, it's hard to say goodbye to things you've had for a...

With the good comes the bad....

Well, I think I spoke a bit too soon. Among all my excitement about getting stuff done, my nan passed away a couple of days ago. I only saw her the Sunday after I got back. She was 80 and her heart...

Re: A good day

Re: Negativity that cannot be reversed?

I've just moved back to the UK after 5 years in the US, and I tried to revert back to a happy mentality before I left, but with all the crap that had gone...

Been a great day today. Got my debit card through after opening a bank account. They were great. Only opened it on Friday, and got my card today. They got me a good savings one set up too.

Re: UKTV are you as sad as me?

Hehehe!! I used to be the same way. I watched that "Ghostwatch" show that was so controversial way back in the day, hosted by Sarah Greene and Parky. I was scared stiff for weeks, even after I found...

Re: Uk weather - 18 degrees in mid February.

Re: UKTV are you as sad as me?

Had to laugh when I read this. They have "How Clean is Your House?" on BBC America, and I watch it when I can. It's disgusting how some people can live like that! Great show, and makes me yearn for...
