Update: On Life, My Reading Slump & Free Books!
Hello all! Yes, I do still exist and I know it’s been a week and a bit since my last post, I'm sorry about that. But, life has thrown opportunities at me that have kept me busy. I've had three job interviews, a phone one and two group interviews which both had one-to-ones as well! So they've definitely occupied a lot of my time, they've had me stressed, nervous and even feeling a little sick. I know that I didn't get one of the jobs but they've put me on file to be a Christmas temp rather than a permanent member of staff. This is good but I am looking for something that’s slightly more permanent as I've got nothing else to do right now having left college.
Jobs aside, I've gone into a reading slump. I got into one at the same time last year so maybe it’s just one of those things. I really do hope that I will be able to pull myself out of it soon but I just feel uninterested when I pick up a book. I am still looking at ones to buy but I just can’t bring myself to read them. I think I just need to read something that blows me away and has me gripped from page one. If you have any recommendations then please let me know, I'm desperate people!
I'm finding myself more interested in playing The Sims 3 and watching TV than reading at the minute. You know what I like about The Sims 3? You can sculpt your Sims lives to perfection and if they mess up it doesn't matter as it isn't real life! Oh how I love that game. I'm not sad by the way, just a teenager that loves The Sims.
However, I did get a book for free yesterday. Sorry Waterstones, but your staff really do need to pay attention to the change they give. So I bought The Shadow of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and I got it for £4 as I had some points on my card. I paid for the book with a £5 note and ended up with £6 change! I know I should’ve told the sales assistant but I didn't realise until I was on my way home and noticed I had a lot more change than I should’ve. So I got a free book and made £1, not a bad day if you ask me!
