Insomnia Induced Insanity

Jul. 22nd, 2014 11:48 am Wardrobe Malfunction

So this week is turning out to be a bit stressful.

1) I have my hearing on Friday to sort out this work dismissal thing.
2) Its my best friends wedding on Saturday.
3) Complications are creeping into my Thai plans.

Mostly, though, its the wardrobe issue. I've been reading all these articles about dress codes for teachers in Thailand and, well, i'm pretty screwed.
Firstly they mention no tattoos. erm, well, there's one on my foot that I can't cover unless i wear doc martens and those are frowned upon. So I may have to invest in a serious amount of cover up for that spot.
Also, no cleavage must be shown. I'm sporting an E cup - cleavage is pretty much my entire chest.
All skirts must cover the knees and ladies can't wear trousers.

So i'll be stocking up on maxi skirts, oxford shirts and closed shoes. And may lose a few stone from sweating all day.

Despite all that, and deapite my last post of self indulgent angst, I'm pretty chipper lately. Good moods abound! Must be due to all the new music I've collected.

Hi flisters,

I have a huge favour to ask.

Can anyone be kind enough to scan me the GWay interview in todays Kerrang? Its not sold in SA and I would love to read it.

In other news, SA is in the grips of a deep freeze and i am suffering. Bring on Europe in August.
I'll be in Paris on the 18th if anyone would like to meet up.

Hello Flist!

So, in a quick round up on whats happened:

I had a kangaroo court disciplinary hearing and was dismissed.
I went to a lawyer and he said I have an extremely strong case to win. I'm currently awaiting the concilliation date to see what pay out I will be getting.
I'm looking for temp work.
I'm moving to Thailand in September with my sister to teach English.

So, whilst I'm sitting at home, bored out of my mind and avoiding becoming a functioning alcoholic, I feel that I should get back into my authoring ways.

And this is where I need your help.

Do I owe you a fic? Do you want a fic from me? If so, please please please send me a prompt with any fandom and I shall whip something out for you.


Oh, enjoy your summer North Hemisphereians. I'm freezing my arse off.

Its 2:45am.

I've just finished reading The Fault in Our Stars.

I can't stop crying.

Damn you, John Green, for making me relive my loss.

Also, I got fired. My lawyer says I have a strong case to sue. So I'm doing just that. One good thing about south african law - its for the worker, not the boss.

So, I need to work out a routine for myself with my free time. I feel a lot of reading, writing and gym attendance will be the way to go.

So, i think i may have a slight problem with authority and systems and SOPs and accounting and my memory.

Going through my CV proves it. Makes my employment possibilities very slim.

What is it about me that rubs up management the wrong way? I do as instructed. I work the hours. I'm nice to clients. But something always creeps up and ruins it and i'm not too sure what it is.

I suspect it comes from my independent nature, intolerance of egos and the fact that my default setting is: you're not the boss of me.
Also that inate fear of going to work somewhere and waking up when they bring out your retirement cake asking yourself what the hell happened?

That right there. The watercooler politics, the ladder climbing bitches who irrationally see you as a threat when in fact the last thing you want is to wear powersuits and sit in meetings all day.

That working for the weekend mentality when a daily bottle of wine turns you into a character from Cheers.

The stress of wondering if one little mishap could lead to the unemployment office.

Fuck em. Fuck the corporate aashats.

Now if only i can get my parents to overcome their issues with me moving to the otherside of the world. Trust me, all the concerns are money based and stupid.

And one day i'll finish a fic. One bloody day.

Thanka for the comments girls.

After so thinking and deciding, i have figured it out.

I want out of corporate. I want to travel. I want to move into Academia.

And all those boxes are ticked by teaching English in the far east.
My sister is already heading that way, so I am getting my ducks in a row.

I have a plan! And that makes me happy.

For the first time in my life, i am truly at a loss at what to do with my life.
I know it can't continue the way its going, but i have no idea what to do to fix it.

I've always had a plan. Always. But now...I have nothing.
I can't think of any job i'd like to do. No thoughts other than wanting to win the lotto and move into Cambridge Uni.

I need some ideas...

I'm still alive.

Having a pretty shitty year so far. Work bullshit has led to disciplinary action - awaiting verdict.

No mojo. Very down.
