I dyed my hair. I've had orange for a year now, and was getting sick of it. I wanted to go yellow, but then I lost my job, and job-hunting with neon yellow hair = HA, yeah right. I figured red was a more acceptable colour, and I love it. Anyway, it's ridiculously bright, the photo doesn't show it. Props to my ma, the wonderful colourist that she is <3
(not really, she's a book keeper but does a pretty good job with dyeing hair and whatnot).
And I got a job! Well, I got offered two jobs - one at a pet hospital in Wimbledon, and one at a fairly large clinic in Charlton. Two interviews in one day definitely proved exhausting. I took the Charlton one, because they've said I may be able to start formal training as a nurse within a few months, whereas with the hospital I would've had through go this big long process... and the Charlton one just had a more relaxed, friendly atmosphere, and not INSANE shifts like the hospital, which would've involved some 7 day working weeks, night shifts and all the rest. Ergh.
So I start in February as a "kennel assistant" - it seems pretty much like what I've been doing already, assisting the nurses, taking care of the animals in for surgery, giving them medication, injections and so on. And until then, I plan on spending lots of time sleeping, spending time with friends that I haven't spent much time with recently and tackling my ridiculous collection of clothes that I don't wear and invade ebay with it. I've just let it build up and up over the years and I just don't have the space to hold on to things just because I want to anymore. I hate getting rid off stuff, I know a lot of people are the same. Clearing everything out though is strangely cleansing.
ALSO today was Cyan and I's first anniversary, so I've been feeling all gooey and silly. We started planning a holiday for the both of us this summer. Possibly Berlin!
I've just realised that my new phone's text alert sounds like it's farting. It's delicious.
